I've been going to Leon's for custard my entire life. It is reported to be the idea behind the TV show Happy Days. The custard is awesome!

I have enjoyed Leon's Custard since I was a single digit midget in the very early 1960's. It is always great... I have stood in line at 95 degrees and much shorter lines at -5. Most of the people around always have a smile on their face...

My husband and I have been going to Leon's custard stand since we were small children. So that means over 60 years.

For some reason it is a totally different experience... More

Like taking a trip in the "way back machine", Leon's has the appeal of a 50's drive in. Walk up to the order window for service with a smile! The vanilla custard was creamy, rich, with a fresh vanilla taste. The true test of great custard is vanilla done right! And they do! For $2.08 I ordered their version of... More

Custard is served all over Milwaukee but only a few places are worth my calorie splurge and Leon's is one of them. Kopps would be my first choice, Leon's or Oscar's or Gille's are all fine second choices. Leon's is the choice of political candidates, for whatever reason, so it gets the most press. Much less impressive are their 'burgers'... More
