This is a really good place for great custard. It's very like steak and shake but the custard is better than ice cream. The hamburger is also like steak and shake but I think steak and shake is better. The orders come out really fast unlike steak and shake. Will return .

Very good casual burger joint in the Alamo Quarry Market shopping center. Our burgers were both very good, the chili-cheese fries were too much, and the frozen custard desserts were fun and delicious. Quick order-at-the-counter service. Our first trip to a Freddy's was a good one.

Lunch here was an old-fashioned treat, starting with the decor. It immediately reminded me of a fifties or sixties diner. The burger choices are good and tasty, made on a flat top the old-fashioned way too. My wife chose a mini-shake which is a nice touch if you don't want or need too many calories. The offer mini-sized sundaes as... More

I am not sure why it says Japanese food in the listing since this is pure American fare! I love their frozen custard! I had the brownie and vanilla FC. I got the mini which sounds tiny but is actually a nice size. Fun 50's kinda feel to the place. Nice place to stop at after shopping or a movie... More

We visit Freddy's on a weekly basis just for their frozen custard. The steakburgers are really good too.

Stopped in for a cold treat on a hot afternoon after visiting museums in the area. We saw the Funnel Cake Sundae and had to have it. It was delicious! I'm definitely stopping by for lunch next time I'm in San Antonio.

We visit San Antonio once a month and always pick up chocolate custard cones and pbc concretes. Delicious desserts that make all happy. This trip today was just for us girls and we also delighted in custard after shopping at the Quarry. THank you once again Freddy's.

If you're shopping in the Quarry, this is the best place to eat a delicious burger! This is the 2nd time I've been here, and it's now my favorite place to eat! The custard and ice cream treats are very good; being from Wisconsin, this is what I'm used to having for ice cream, not powdered mixes like Dairy Queen.... More

10/1/2013 celebrating my birthday here in San Antonio and my husband noticed this place in the Alamo Quarry Market. First, they do have a veggie burger that is lettuce, tomato, and onion(I think) but then I noticed the grilled cheese and had that with fries...$3.99 and a mini shake...$1.70 Second, the cashier was VERY nice and friendly and accommodating.
