Some of the best custard in Milwaukee. Historical custard stand that is a must visit. Cash only! I think they have the best butter pecan in the land.

Leon's is and always has been the #1 place to go for the best butter pecan custard in Milwaukee or the state. They must go through 100lbs a week so there always fresh.

I'm not the biggest fan of frozen custard but this place definitely knows how to make them and make them good! Butter pecan was particularly outstanding.

A must whenever we have the time to stop. My fave is the Cinnamon, and Black Cherry is always a runner up.

Always busy, best vanilla flavor in Milwaukee. No indoor seating. No burgers...just sloppy joes and hot dogs. Wonderful sundaes

You won't get a better custard cone than at Leon's for the price My favorite is the triple with a scoop of chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. If you have a chance you should go.

This is the BEST frozen custard anywhere! People wait outside in line at Leon's in 20 degrees below zero weather.

Want to go back in time to the 50's-60's? Leon's can take you there with their retro frozen custard stand. Supposedly Arnold's from Happy Days was inspired by this place!
