Had a craving for ice cream yesterday and was not disappointed when I ended up at Frates Drive-in. Lots and Lots of flavors to choose from. We had a cappuccino mocha chip, regular ice cream and girl scout mint cookie soft serve, both were delicious. We ordered smalls and they looked like a large. They have a big menu of summertime favorites. Definetly stop by if you are in the Taunton area.

We always end our weekend at Frates for some ice cream. Love the atmosphere. The owner is really nice and the place is always spotless. They have quite an extensive menu with all your drive in favorites and seafood as well. Their fried clams are awesome with just enough breading and not greasy at all. They can be on the expensive side. They charge you for lettuce and tomato but for the most part it a great place to visit with the family.

We overnighted in Raynham and stopped here for dinner. What a great place! The food is great and served fast. Kids had french fries but my hubby and I had the fish sandwich, fried clams, and corn dog - all of which were yummy! Good thing we don't live close by or we'd be fattened up at this place in no time :)

Frates Drive In is a great place to enjoy a some ice cream or a summer meal. The decades old restaurant has been completely refurbished to recreate a typical drive in restaurant from the 1950's and 60's. Both the Ice cream and food menu are extensive. The service, food quality, cleanliness and atmosphere are top notch!!!!! We especially like cruising out to Frates on a warm summer night and enjoying some fried clams or ice cream while listening to the oldies music that is played throughout the property. It's like going back in time. The owner obviously takes pride in this establishment and it certainly shows.

Went here with my 1 year old daughter and husband recently on a nice Saturday. He got the whole belly clam roll, I got the chicken salad roll and we split some fries. Great fries, the chicken salad had big hunks of white meat chicken on a buttery toasted hot dog bun with a little lettuce on the bottom. The clam roll was great too. Not a ton of food which is nice in this age of ridiculously oversized portions. We didn't leave feeling like we were going to explode. The outdoor seating is great though I think they could probably fit in a few more tables without sacrificing all the outdoor run around space for kids (which with an active 1 year old, I certainly appreciate!). Also love that it is fenced in as well - for the same reason. The guy that waited on us was super nice and friendly as were the other people working there. Overall - definitely recommend and we will be going back again sometime this summer.
Also - we didn't get ice cream but that looked good too!
