Kopp's Custard

Cows at attention for Kopp's Custard

It's one of Milwaukee's iconic restaurants - Kopp's Frozen Custard and their third location in Glendale was the only one missing on my personal Kopp's "waffle cone" list.

Each location has a distinct look to it. Glendale features a line of 20 cows on pedestals.  I bet its the only sculpture of its kind in the world.

The Glendale store is in the round.  Simple and elegant with a quiet shaded area to sit and eat.

I appreciate the simplicity of the menu. Hamburgers and their variations.  Fish and Chicken sandwiches.  Fries or Onion Rings.

Amazing custard with special flavors in addition to chocolate and vanilla.

I had a burger, onion rings, and a Marshmallow malt made with chocolate custard.

Oh my!

It's no ordinary hamburger.  There is a special taste to the made to order goodness.  It's just $4.25 and worth it.  (I meant to take a picture, but I was too hungry.)

The onion rings were exquisitely breaded and fried just enough while keeping the onion crispy inside.

The malt deserves its own rhapsody.

The malted adds a wonderful taste to the concoction.  Not everyone likes the flavor of malt, but I'm glad to take their share in my glass, thank you very much.

The interior of Kopp's is simple, too.  If you want just a fountain drink or custard only, there is a line for that and a whole production area right in front of you for ice cream prep.

There are no cow selfies!

In the center, order meals or sandwiches.

A crew devoted to the grills and deep fryers keep the sandwich makers busy.  There isn't any indoor seating.  Stand in line, order, than wait patiently in the back for your number to be called.

It was busy when we got there, but after a reasonable wait, our number came up and we were ready to go.

The malt was wonderful.  A creamy, flavor-filled delight sip after sip.  For someone trying not indulge as often as in the past; you want the experience to be worth it.  This was.

Elsa Kopp opened the first store in 1950.  It's a favorite today because it knows what it does well and sticks to it.  It's simply great.
