We stopped at Frisko Freeze for lunch on our road trip through Washington and Oregon areas. It was my wife and I, and we ordered the cheeseburgers, fries and shakes. We got our food and drove down the street to Wright Park and enjoyed our lunch at a picnic table in the park. The burgers were so fresh and delicious,... More

Great burgers and fries. Shakes are excellent as well. A little pricy but what isn't these days. Be prepared to eat in your car and take some place. Parking is limited but they have a drive thru to get it to go.

I've been past this place so many times and never stopped but finally did and it was worth it. The food was great. Had pretty good portions of fries too! They were pretty busy when we stopped but the food was ready pretty quickly. Would definitely go back.

I've been enjoying the amazing double cheeseburgers here at Frisko Freeze since 1959. I live out of state now, so whenever I visit the Great Pacific Northwest, I always find a way to stop here for my fix. Their chocolate malts are also a favorite of mine. In my world (and I have been around the world) this is the... More

Great classic in Tacoma. Don't expect it to be fast, but it is worth the weight. We get their classic burger and the small fries is enough to share (sometimes enough for three of us). wide selection of shakes, they aren't my thing but I know the kids love them.

Love coming here for their crisp hot dogs, and retro charm. A real gem for Tacoma and a classic that will keep us coming back.

This place is great for a good ol' fashioned burger and shake. Classic spot, reminds you of a American Graffiti.

Great burgers, shakes, onion rings with a cool retro vibe! On a warm summer night, Frisko Freeze can't be beat!

From the weathered image of a hamburger on the sign to the hand-written menu in the window Frisko Freeze is a throwback. A Tacoma tradition since World War II, this "burger joint" (meant in the best way possible) serves thousands of folks a day...at one walk up and one drive up window. Do you like onions on your burger? You're... More
