Good but not as good as back in the day. Still like to go there. Whenever I am on that side of town, I make it my businesd to go to Leon. Back in the day (60"s) our Sunday drive was to Leon.

One of the two classic frozen custard places in Milwaukee. It is near the airport so worth a stop when arriving or about to leave. The building and signage is classic 1950s drive-in and great neon. The custard is very good but no better than...More
