It must be black magic, otherwise, how could anyone make such thin burgers? They look like brown doilies and you can literally see through them. They make a McDonald's hamburger look big enough to feed a family of six.

Never had a bad meal at Freddy's. Love the fries the most because they are thin and tasty. Takes a little longer to get food sometimes but it is worth it in the end. Save space for custard!!!!

Had a grilled chicken sammich. They are just as great as the steak burgers. Shoe string fries are just as good. Concrete with fruit are the best. Cannot go wrong with Freddy's.

Freddys offers a variety of sizes of delicious frozen custard. If you've never had frozen custard it's quite similar to ice cream but with a thicker consistency. They offer a number of different vixens for your Sundays. I had one with Oreos and gummy worms. It was very good.

My family and I were interested in a light dinner with dessert to end our meal. We all (3) of us had their cheeseburgers and fries. This being our first visit we ordered a single patty burger. This hit the spot for us because we knew dessert was part of our plan but if I was in famished I would... More

Pros * Surprisingly friendly service for fast food * Super clean restaurant * Food quality was above average. Great burger. * Great prices * Custard looked great. ( I did not try it) Cons * It is a fast food restaurant. Definitely very casual. Not a bad choice for a quick lunch.

If you like Steak and Shake then you will love Freddy's. Their French fries are great and the custard is awesome and so creamy. It is clean and family friendly.

How can you pass by a place with an ice cream cone with your four year old granddaughter? We have no Freddy's in California so we stopped by to try it. Wow, the food was delicious! The fries--great. The burger--great. Of course we had to try to custard so I order the Turtle sundae for me and a cone for... More

Amazing frozen custard and the fries with fry sauce are so delicious! My fiancé and I both had the California style steakburger combos and they tasted really good, although a little salty. First time going there and we had to go back twice in one day. My fiancé fell in love with the place. Excited that they are building a... More
