New owners way better burger

Had for the first time in awhile. Bun is no longer soggy fries are crisp. Poutine has real curds. Burger actually tastes homemade. Bun was toasted toppings no longer sopping wet. Sure the old gravy was good but now the food seems fresher and left me with a good taste in my mouth.

Been going to Frieda's for almost 20 years. Food, the cook Tony and service staff always did a great job. Prices were good and could not complain about the portion size. Signature gravy was the best in town. Just got new owners and the first thing they do is change the signature gravy and jack up the price on everything.... More

On Monday, July 21, 2014 my travel partner and I dined at Frieda's for breakfast. The first impression is not good. You go up to the counter and wait and wait for someone to greet you. It is cafeteria kind of place. The atmosphere is dated. Service is non-existent or self serve. Because I did not like the look of... More

I have visited this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed! The quality of the food is very good-how many places still make their own hamburger patties? The pricing is very reasonable and the quantity is way more than you expect of need! It's not fancy, it's cafeteria style, step up, order and pay for you food, slide down... More

I've eaten here four times now and my wife and I and toddler have walked out paying less than $20 a visit. It's definately budget friendly. As I stated in the title, it is a no frills diner, and that includes no waitresses. But that also means you pay less or can spend more, whichever way you want to look... More

Nice family style cooking. You must order at the counter, but they are pretty fast. Staff is very friendly. I don't think you will be dissapointed eating here.

In a good location for the Lovett Industrial area for lunch, close to the 401, but nothing fancy. Average expected prices, no surprises, sufficient parking, but coming out have to cross a very busy road to go East.

Basic home-style burger place. You can get liver and onions here sometimes. I think that tells it all.
