My gosh, this place has been here for as long as Washington has been a state. It's a local institution and not to be missed - an old time drive up hamburger spot where high school friends would meet up on Friday and Saturday nights. They probably still do. Service is at the window and is what you would expect,... More

This has been a favorite place for my family for 2 generations. I'm working on passing the love of it on to my kids. The burgers are especially good. There's something about their sauce & the onions ...

We stopped here while kids were at school. Burgers were hot, the shakes were creamy and yummy. We will be back.

I never visit the Seattle area without driving to Tacoma for a burger here. The burgers are amongst the best I have eaten all over the world. Also, I love the 50's look and feel of the place.

Stopped here on the drive from Portland to Seattle. We all had burgers and milkshakes. Our whole family loved it. Very good stop for families with kids. Kids will get a kick out of the authentic "retroness" of the place. Best milkshake I've ever had, absolutely, no question. Get off the highway and the same-old same-old and search out this... More

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
