Had to stop on a hot September Sunday to try Leon's Frozen Custard. I got a scoop of butter pecan, and it was filled with pecans. So delicious. With its 1950s style neon, the place looks like Mel's in Happy Days.

While there was a short line ahead of me, of maybe 6 people, it moved quickly. The staff is efficient, courteous, and the custard comes out quickly. I asked for a glass of water and the woman at the counter handed it to me without comment, even though there were many people behind me. Definitely would come here again!

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.
