I've heard locals rave about Nielsen's Frozen Custard. I finally went there recently with my wife. They had a few flavors of Custard available in cones and pints you could take home. I expected heaven in a cone due to the comments other locals shared with me. The custard was nothing special. It tasted similiar to ice cream, but tasted like there was sand or something in it. Maybe the ingredients weren't mixed right. Either way it was too sweet, too expensive, and I'll never go back.

I LOVE Nielsen's. Their custard is exquisite (if pricey at $4-5 a 16-oz concrete), the place has a wonderful old-timey 50's diner atmosphere with black white and red decor, and they do a great job keeping the place spotlessly clean (including bathrooms). For newcomers, the menu can be a little confusing (I had no idea when i first came what custard even was, as opposed to ice cream). Rather than outline it here, my suggestion would be to go there and sit yourself down with a menu, where on the back you will find plentiful praise for their delectable product. If you still have questions, just ask the scoopers. They know what they're talking about.
Custard flavors are chocolate and vanilla (and the day's special), into which you can add things like strawberry, raspberry, lemon, pineapple, cherry, fudge, caramel, oreo, and a large selection of nuts. They even have a pumpkin flavor. Unfortunately, there are no candy bar mix-ins, which i consider a real downside.
My two favorites: raspberry-oreo concrete. Tart plus chocolate... you can't go wrong.
A surprise: FC topper with coconut and chocolate chip syrup-- just like an almond joy. No kidding. Mmmm.
They freeze the stuff there, which is cool, because you can watch it being made--except that the machine that makes it can be really loud, and on busy nights like Friday and Saturday, it's on a lot more than on weekdays.
I never eat the grinders, but they're there, including two veggie options.
Some corrections I could make to the other reviews i read would be these:
They don't have sugar cones. Just the regular.
The construction is over with! (but you still have to do a turn- around if you're coming from the west on the Blvd.)
The idea that Nielsen's is not romantic depends on your idea of romantic. If you're looking for candlelight, ok, fine, it's not romantic. On the other hand, if you'd like something sweet and old-fashioned, a la Norman Rockwell, this is just the place for you.

I first had Nielsen's frozen custard in Las Vegas and loved it! When I saw that there was an outlet in StGeorge I was excited, when I discovered that it was the same great quality of dessert I was extatic! I highly recommend this place. The only thing that would improve this place is an end to the road construction in front of it.
