Freddy is an actual dude! His sons started the restaurant in his honor – pretty admiral guy too. Freddy won a Purple Heart & a Bronze Star in WWII.
Freddy’s held a big open house the day before their Grand Opening and sent notices to all the folks in the neighborhood and it was PACKED! The staff was all on-hand to help deal with the masses and I have to say – the pressure test went pretty well! The line moved quickly and everybody was in a good mood.
They sell some of their specialties – like their fry sauce (Copy Cat Recipe – sounds delish!)
I decided to forego the fries and try the burger – so I got a Steakburger California Style. California style has cheese, onion, Freddy’s sauce, lettuce & tomato.
Honestly – I probably liked the dog a little better but the burger was still good – super thin patty and the Freddy’s sauce is tasty.
I made the mistake of NOT ordering my frozen custard when I ordered my dinner – because when I got done – the line was HUGE again!!! Luckily – the staff was walking around and I begged my way into a cup of custard.
Then another staffer came by and thought my custard looked sad all plain – so he offered up toppings! I went for the Hawaiian (which was what I wanted) and was delivered a cup of pineapple, strawberry, coconut, macadamia nuts, whipped cream and a cherry!
All in all – I was a happy camper after dinner – I can’t help that I’m a sucker for a Chicago Dog and frozen custard! The staff was excellent – and I realize they knew to be on their best behavior but they did go above and beyond – with positive attitudes and a can-do attitude.
