It’s easy to choose somewhere to eat when it’s just two people. Once you hit the four or more range there’s always one dissenter who won’t agree to the rest of the group’s choices. I was lucky this time as my wife Marcela and parents agreed to a last-minute u-turn to pull into Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, also I was driving which helped.
I love me a good Frozen Custard and well, you know my thoughts on Burgers. I see a Chili Cheese Dog (Vienna brand) on the menu which means I am required by the Beast Oath to order it. A Double Cheeseburger (Pickles sliced longwise, Onions & Mustard come standard), a Patty Melt and Fries find a way into my order. I wash it all down with some Vanilla Frozen Custard.
I liked the Chili Cheese Dog but the way the buttered bun is cut (the dog is pretty much resting on the bun) guarantees you will have a mess on your hands. If that’s your thing well then guess what? Load up on napkins.
The Fries are very similar to the ones you find at Steak N Shake. As a matter of fact, the decor and interior remind me of Steak N’ Shake.
The Patty Melt comes with Swiss Cheese & Grilled Onions on toasted Rye Bread. I’m thinking the American Cheese would have worked better in this case but it was still a damn fine Patty Melt.
Onto the Double Cheeseburger…….the pickle was little too thick for my liking but the Burger…..just WOW! I was blown away. It is the perfect specimen of a Cheeseburger. I loved it so much that Marcela and I returned the following day just for Double Cheeseburgers. The Patties are thin so you’re really going to need a Double to get that great griddled Steak taste.
I kinda touched on the Fry subject before but most important in this topic is Freddy’s Fry Sauce, highly addictive. I was raving about it so much my Dad bought me an 18 oz. bottle to take home. It’s one of those Ketchup/Mayo combos so it goes great with everything.
Marcela calls me bland for always ordering Vanilla wherever we go but my thought process is it’s the base flavor. If the Vanilla is great then everything else should be too. And yes, the Frozen Custard Vanilla at Freddie’s is great.
In closing, if you see a Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers on the horizon make sure you drop in for a Double Cheeseburger. If you’re in a hurry, don’t worry there’s a drive-thru. One last thing, get extra Fry Sauce.
