A great place to eat a small meal. The hamburgers are the best and they have very thin crisp fries. The Custard is great also. The staff are friendly and ready to serve you. Restaurant is always clean.

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.
