Great friends sharing good food...

We wanted somewhere to chill out while enjoying good food. Having been to Frieda's before; I knew what to expect. Order your food and get it yourself - it's no frills but the portions are huge and the food is excellent. I ordered poutine, my cousin ordered fish and chips and our friends ordered... read more

Went there a couple of days ago. Thought they have servers but they don't. Just come up front and get your food yourself. Staff was not friendly and some customer was talking way too loud (not restaurants fault though). I will revisit in a while to see if the place had improved.

The way the restaurant is set up was a surprise! I had heard so many great things but I was disappointed! The food was just ok & my toast was burnt! When paying good $$ to got out to eat I like to be served! If I knew I had to do it myself I would have cooked at home!... More

One of the city's longstanding diner's and a top choice for value and fast service. Have enjoyed the huge breakfasts there, the daily hamburger special and the Greek Souflaki. The burger is huge, well grilled and comes all dressed with a huge portion of fresh fries and a drink for ten bucks taxes in! Their grill man is awesome to... More

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
