Dessert Stop after East County or Mission Trails Park

If you're headed back to San Diego after doing some of the great hiking in Mission Trails Regional Park or coming back from the great things out in East County, then head here if you've got a sweet tooth. Good place for an afternoon ice cream on a hot day. Haven't had the burgers, but they look... read more

I work near by and frequently eat at Foster's for lunch or a little snack. The root beer floats are amazing. I love the grilled cheese sandwiches and the fries and you also have to try the fried green beans. It's a new item not listed on the menu but order them! You'll love them. They have a bit of...

We were looking for an ice cream Sundae close to our hotel and this was great. It was in a strip mall and the service was great and the ice cream was good!

I live in Allied Garden. I was raised here. So Fosters Freeze as the "small town burger and ice cream" joint was a favorite. My wife and I planned our honeymoon trip here over 7Up Freezes. So we like to come back to relive lots of fun memories. The atmosphere is never anything to write home about. Today it was... More

A cool place to take the kids after a sporting event. Typical hamburgers and such. Fair food for the price. The icecream is awesome.

Frosters Freezeis is my favorite restaurant. There food is great, the service was great and they had our food to us within 5 minutes. When i went to Frosters Freeze i ordered the old classic, and it was cooked to perfection. I think that this restaurant is a great family restaurant, for people of all ages.
