What a burger!

You must try their bacon double cheeseburger oh my word. Next time you're in auburn make sure to stop by Frugals! You won't believe how great they are! Just like you did it yourself on the grill. Been in auburn for 4 years and somehow missed this place but I will be back.

I first had a Frugals burger in Port Angeles while visiting while I lived in Oregon...about three years ago. I moved to the Seattle area and this summer we were going to take ferries and make a day trip to mostly go to Port Angeles for Frugals. Not wanting to go all that way if they were no longer there...

Frugals is a drive thru only burger joint located in Auburn, WA. Burgers are made to order, not made in advance. There are many choices but my favorite is the Monster Burger. It's made with 4 burger patties, bacon and cheese are separate. If you find yourself in Auburn, WA and are hungry for a burger, swing on through Frugals... More

Despite winning local "best-of" awards, the birgers are a sloppy mess with little taste. Price is far too high for the poor quality you get.

Hamburgers are large and good, but I was impressed with their BLT the last visit!
