A throwback to the 60's, a converted A+W stand doing custard, Malts, Shakes, Sundays. Custard was very good, three flavor for cones per day, vanilla, chocolate and another revolving flavor, today was pistachio. Very good, lots of nuts.

Typical drive-in with quite a variety of things on the menu. Special on Tuesday for burgers. Ice cream is always good.

This place used to have the best vanilla custard I've ever eaten. Anytime I had visitors I took them here for custard. I told them, just get the vanilla, you've never had anything like it. The custard was creamy a FULL of vanilla flavor. Over the years, the prices rose, but it didn't bother me because the custard was just... More

Incredible burgers, especially the monster (or whatever it's called) if you're really hungry. Not a ton of room to eat in the place itself but it's a great place to order to-go food from. I've never had a bad meal here. The custard is to die for as well. You can also take pints of ice cream to go, which... More

Welcome to a 1950s frozen custard stand. No glitz, just great custard and amazing burgers. Don't waste your time by going to one of the chain fast food restaurants, Hefner's is the real thing. The "flavors of the day" are outstanding because Hefner's doesn't skimp on the ingredients.

I used to live in Cedarburg and make a point to stop here everytime we visit now. They cheese curds still squeak when you eat them. The burgers taste like butter burgers. They also have great custard!

If you travel to Cedarburg you have to stop in and get a treat here. I ordered a fantastic malt. They served it with a cherry on top, but not the typical maraschino. This was a dark sweet cherry that had been candied. It added a very unique twist to the malt.

Stopped here for Saturday afternoon to support a local burger joint. We walked in, and it smelled musty. I was like whoa! We're going to have to dine outside if I'm going to try and enjoy my food. The staff was very nice, The burgers were OK, and they didn't know how to cut a grilled cheese sandwich in half... More
