Great place to get a custard but it is in the ghetto. Can be very dicey (from experience).

Excellent hot dogs and Sloppy Joe burgers ! Of course, DO NOT miss the custard - that's the primary reason for your presence in this hallowed place !

This institution is open all year, and they are open late into the night...at least during the summer. We had heard the place was good, so we had to make sure we went here, and when we arrived, the lines were really long. Fortunately, they moved very quickly, and we didn't have to wait for more than 10 minutes or so to get through the line. They only had four flavors of custard for cones (chocolate, vanilla, butter pecan, and raspberry), but then they also have a wide assortment of shakes/malts and sundaes, etc. When you go, remember that they are cash only.

Great food and the frozen custard was better than I expected. I had never had frozen custard before and was not quite sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised that it really did not taste like custard but rather like soft serve ice cream but much better. It is well worth it to check it out

I crossed the street for desert at Leon's after a wonderful burger meal at Mazo's. Leon's is a neon-rimmed 1950s throwback that serves a wonderfully creamy frozen custard. I stuck with a vanilla cone, which was delicious all wrapped up in its American flag wrapper. My only regret is that I didn't order a larger cone. Who needs Fro-Yo when you can have this ultimate frozen desert? And there's no need for mix-ins or silly flavor names either. Sundae's, malts, and banana splits are also available at very reasonable prices.

Please note that there is no seating available here, so you're either going to have to eat your custard standing up, back in the car, or at home.
