“Great Cheese Burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

You would never think to stop here as you drive by. About 20 miles west of Creede. Co. But, if you do you won't regret it. Their burgers are among the best my wife and I have ever had.

“Great burgers and ice cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

You go to Freeman's for the food and the atmosphere...it's rustic and casual and downright friendly. If it's busy you just share a table with strangers and visit with them. Lots of hunters, fishermen, hikers, RVers, locals and summer people frequent Freeman's because the food is really good and the ice cream is top notch. Freeman's was very close to the forward edge of the wildfire in 2013 and the firefighters set up a camp right there...so glad it and the homes across the road were spared. Lots of small places like Freeman's don't take credit cards so play it safe and take cash and checks. It's not particularly cheap (what is these days?), but the food is worth the price.

“Always Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

This is a place ran and owned by the locals. It's not a very big place, usually packed with hikers, fishermen, and local ranchers. They have good ice cream, and Amazing burgers. The wait is not very long and you can watch the local women make your food while you sit and wait. You can purchase a fishing license here, and buy bait, of flies. They even have old fashioned bottled soda, which is always a treat. Very friendly atmosphere, we always make sure we stop whenever we're in the area.

“Just like PawPaw's store.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

All the stuff you need and nothing you don't. Great food and very friendly people. This is just like my grandpa's store in Oklahoma. I highly recommend this place, but don't expect some ritzy ez mart type place its just down home good stuff.

“Burgers and Horse Back Riding”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Freeman's is an institution. The family always enjoys the horseback riding on the mellow horses. The best part of Freeman's is the burgers! They are fantastic, a must have!
