Stopped by to pick up a cherry malt for my husband and after looking at the menu I ordered a turtle sundae for myself. BAD! Not the sundae but all the calories that I ate. Some of the best places for frozen custard.

This is just good custard. The rest of the menu may be skipped. Stay with the custard. Just be ready to spend more for a cone or single dish than anywhere else in Madison. Once in a while, it is just worth it.

The frozen custard is very creamy and creamy means fatty. Personally, I can only go occasionally due to calories and cost. Less costly alternatives are Dairy Queen and McDonald's, possibly Culver's.

As always the custard is realy good. The cost is a little on the high side but I guess you have to pay for quality. We visit here once in awhile.
