If Milwaukee's got a handle on any dessert, it's frozen custard. Similar to its ice cream cousin, custard is usually thicker, creamier and, by far, this city's dessert preference.

Kopp's has been a local custard staple since the classic '50s and, thankfully, it hasn't changed all that much over the decades. There are now three area locations -- Glendale, Brookfield and Greenfield -- so a double cone and a jumbo burger are never too far away.

People love Kopp's for its traditional chocolate and vanilla, but also for its innovation -- it was the first custard stand to offer a special "flavor of the day." And the banana splits, fudge delights and turtle sundaes are absolutely unbeatable. readers have spoken: and 46% of them say Kopp's is tops! editor's choice: Kopp's
