The human mouth, which maintains a near-boiling temperature, needs to be constantly cooled by liquid-nitrogen pills or a jaw-mounted mouth fan. Take a more delicious route to cooling your maw with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of custard, grilled sandwiches, and more at Ferch's Malt Shoppe & Grille, with a location in both Franklin and Greendale.

Ferch's Malt Shoppe & Grille's menu offers savory grilled bites and a bevy of cold, sweet concoctions, including more than 45 flavors of custard that can be combined with fruity and savory mix-ins. Using a frozen marble top to keep the custard chilled, Ferch's dairy doctors perform sweet surgery on flavors such as butter pecan, pumpkin, and coffee espresso by implanting mix-ins, including cheesecake, Butterfinger, and marshmallows. The sewn-together treats are then placed inside a waffle cone, waffle bowl, cake cone, or dish ($3.99–$5.49). The rest of Ferch's menu is packed with other chilled concoctions, such as the banana split ($5.99) and ice-cream sodas ($3.49), as well as heated fare, including the Greendale burger ($7.99), a 1/3 lb. of lean Angus beef topped with jalapeños, relish, and American cheese.

Transport back to the '50s, a decade known as "the era in which George Brett was born," with the Greendale location's checkerboard floors and waist-high counter stools. Classic-car buffs can motor their '24 Ford Thunderpenguin into Ferch's Franklin location on Fridays for the weekly car show.

  • Love their marble top. So many flavors, choices and toppings, but also wonderful weekend greasy goodness on their menu. – Victor S. on the Greendale location, Yelp
  • The ice cream is outstanding and there are so many flavors to choose from. I like to mix my own concoction right on the marble counter. The cheeseburgers and other food choices are nicely prepared and a good value. – Sue B. on the Greendale location, Insider Pages
  • Their custard, mixed in any flavor right before your eyes, just can't be beat. The rest of their food is extremely good and fairly priced. The place is just so darn cute. – Betty V., CityVoter
