Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers have been around since 2002, but this Wichita, Kansas, chain is one to keep an eye on.
I love that they hail from the same town where White Castle first opened its doors.
My family and I were driving around Orlando, Florida when we came across a brightly lit, brand spanking new burger restaurant calling us to visit.
Once inside, my first thought was that the look of Freddie’s was very reminiscent of Steak n Shake.
I see a Chili Cheese Dog (Vienna brand) on the menu, which means I am required by my Beast Oath to order it.
A Double cheeseburger, Patty Melt, and an order of fries somehow find a way onto my order too.
I wash them all down with some Vanilla Frozen Custard.
I liked the chili cheese dog, but the wiener is resting on the buttered bun. It 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 thin and crispy, which makes them perfect for mashing into their Freddy’s Fry Sauce.
The Patty Melt comes with Swiss cheese & grilled onions on toasted rye bread. I think the American cheese would have worked better in this case, but it was still a damn fine Patty Melt.
Onto the double bheeseburger…just WOW! I was blown away. It is the perfect specimen of a cheeseburger.
I loved it so much that my wife Marcela and I returned the following day just for double cheeseburgers. The patties are thin, so you’re going to need a double to get that great griddled steak taste.
FREDDY’S FRY SAUCE
I touched on the fry subject before, but most important in this topic is the highly addictive Freddy’s Fry Sauce.
It’s one of those Ketchup/Mayo combos, so it goes great with everything.
I was raving about it so much my pops bought me a bottle to take home.
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 excellent.
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.
