Toucan Food and Custard in West Bend WI
It seems like every town has that special place with good food and great custard. This place exudes that hometown feel with regular special events for everyone. Like for instance Hot Rod Nights...
Provide the locals a chance to air out the classics and talk about the good times over a burger and drink.
There are plenty of seats available as The Toucan has built outdoor seating areas around the building and next to the hill. There are about 6-7 tables inside along with stool seating as well.
The Toucan Food and Custard has a good selection of items to choose from. One favorite of the locals is the Kong Burger. (or Triple Kong Burger for some!) A great big burger with a healthy dose of 'sauce'. (which I think is thousand island dressing) One of my favorites are their Chili Cheese Fries that come piping hot out from the kitchen. I wouldn't consider the Toucan to be a fast food joint either. They make everything fresh to order and with quality products as well. So there is a little bit of a wait (but similar to when you are in a fast food drive through and they 'ask' you to move up because they didn't have enough fries for your order - or they should honestly say that they want to keep their 'window time' down for... ah that is another story)
Of course the main draw for most people is 'the flavor of the day'. They have a different special custard flavor of the day along with vanilla and chocolate. I haven't been able to find an on line place to see the schedule for that, but they do update their sign to alert all the passing vehicles. You can also call the Flavor Hotline to find out prior to driving over. Another great aspect is that the Toucan is very close to Regner Park, but that is for another post...
It is a great place to stop for a quick bite in the middle of a long day of real estate showings.
If you are new to town, or just visiting the area.... Make sure you stop in for a tasty treat!
