We went there one night for a snack. Serving sizes great. Prices good too. Seems to be a local hang out but a lot of families too. We would go again

This is the classic walk up ice cream counter. It's totally old school, down to the music playing on the outside speaker the custard is good. The toppings and flavor of the day are cool, and the house special creations are good choices, with classic throw back names. And the prices are about what you expect these days. The only... More

This is a local favorite, seasonal old fashioned soft ice cream stand - like what DQ was in its beginning. Highly recommend you go here instead.

I introduced friends to this and they will drive 30 minutes in the summer just to eat here. Beware there is no indoor seating, but they have benches and a few picnic tables. They always have vanilla and chocolate, but have a flavor of the day too. Their Sundaes, cones, or milkshakes are great. They have about 40 sundaes on... More

My husband drives past here to and from work and frequently comes home with this yummy treat. We know spring has arrived when Gregs is open. When we do go visit staff is always pleasant and kind and patient.

We travel from Northbrook for Greg's delicious custard. We took a trip on the second day of the 2016 season and we got the last parking space (front & back!) Was a long custard-less winter!! Be sure to get some for your freezer when you can't make the trip!!!

The real deal and it's delish! A favorite stop every Sunday afternoon. Always interesting flavors and surprises. The salted caramel was over the moon

Best frozen custard ever! But my favorite is the turtle sundae. Frozen custard made daily, can't go wrong with anything you select. Be sure to get a pint or more for your freezer.
