This is the classic walk up ice cream counter. It's totally old school, down to the music playing on the outside speaker the custard is good.

I introduced friends to this and they will drive 30 minutes in the summer just to eat here. Beware there is no indoor seating, but they have benches and a few picnic tables.

My husband drives past here to and from work and frequently comes home with this yummy treat. We know spring has arrived when Gregs is open. When we do go visit staff is always pleasant and kind and patient.

We travel from Northbrook for Greg's delicious custard. We took a trip on the second day of the 2016 season and we got the last parking space (front & back!) Was a long custard-less winter!! Be sure to get some for your freezer when you can't make the trip!!!

Best frozen custard ever! But my favorite is the turtle sundae. Frozen custard made daily, can't go wrong with anything you select. Be sure to get a pint or more for your freezer.
