Coming from the same genre as Steak 'n Shake, this Freddy's one-ups them on burgers and fries, hot dogs and similar stuff, and blows them away on frozen custard and yogurt. The fries, hot and crunchy, are as good as you will find. And while...More

Burgers are cooked fresh. Every sandwich they offer is delicious! They pile on the French fries which are tasty too. A favorite for a quick bite to eat.
