THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Nielsen's Frozen Custard Restaurant Review

: It's not often that an ice cream store can count on winning hearts for more than its frozen stuff. Nielsen's sets the standard, too, for nostalgia buffs that hearken back to the days when ice cream was, well, just cream and sugar, and smooth as a velveteen dress. That's what Nielsen's serves, super-smooth and ultra-rich ice cream---only in three flavors---plus loads of ice cream-based extras including sodas, sundaes, toppings and other cold treats. On the other hand, if you or your kids are hungry for something substantial before ice cream eating, Nielsen's serves up hero-sized sandwiches of roast beef, chicken and assorted other combinations. For one-stop eating, this funky, quaint store puts competitors to shame with its quality food.
