“Don't get fish sandwich!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2011

Long wait in running car burns a lot of gas. Offsets any so-called savings. Grilled halibut sandwich was absolutely atrocious and inedible. If you want to try something other than the big chain fast food experience DONT EVEN TAP THE BRAKES as you drive past. GO SOMEPLACE ELSE!

Cute building BUT the food was cold and the buns were very dried out.

“Will not return.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2011

Poor service and mediocre food. Do yourself a service and head elsewhere. I guess they are having trouble finding decent employees. Montana Club is right down the road or head to Five Guys if you have the time.

“Best Mushroom Swiss Burger!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2011

Frugals is where I go when I'm in the mood for a mushroom swiss burger...excellent. Juicy and full of flavor. Add some fries and a shake and it is a great lunch (better than the nationwide big chains...you know, the guys represented by a clown or a nightmarish guy in a cape). The drive through is two sided...works for a solo driver or when you have a passenger...really speeds the line along. Rating it for Atmosphere is unfair as it is a drive-in only.

“Fast food at it's messiest!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2010

If you plan to take food away from here (there is no indoor dining) bring a bib...or ask for lots of napkins! :) and depending on the time of day..be prepared for a small wait!
The food is not bad...and seems to be priced about right.
