Freddy’s is a privately owned and family oriented restaurant with a tasty menu that is combined with exceptional guest services and cleanly restaurants.
The very first Freddy’s opened in Wichita, Kansas, in 2002. Freddy’s restaurants each sport a classic red and white color scheme. With the exterior of the building featuring red and white awnings, red neon lights and Freddy’s Signature frozen custard cone.
With the retro look inside of cushioned, red vinyl booths, stools and chairs, complete with chrome backs and legs. Reminded me of an old diner, a cool look.
The floors were black and white checkered tile that complemented the walls that held genuine photos of the original Freddy and his family.
I love the fact that the business model revolves around genuine guest hospitality and service with a smile. A great model, because those two things are qualities that are important to the restaurant industry. The employees definitely embodied these two qualities.
This past weekend my husband and I attended the Friends and Family event at Freddy’s. The weather was terrible, but the Friends and Family event had a great turnout.
Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers is a fast casual restaurant that is known for their premium, lean, ground beef Steakburgers and desserts.
Their branding concept is “The Taste That Brings You Back”.
My husband tried the Chicago Dog Freddy’s Style. The Chicago Dog was an all-beef hot dog topped with mustard, relish, diced onions, sports peppers, celery salt, tomato and pickles served on a toasted bun.
The hot dog was pretty good. My husband doesn’t like mustard and relish so his hot dog didn’t have those condiments on it.
Taste wise it was a good hot dog. The dog was prepared and presented well. Also served with shoe string fries.
I ordered the Double Steak burger California Style. The burger was served with two Steak burger patties, cheese, a full slice of onion, Freddy’s sauce, lettuce and tomato served on a toasted bun.
Not a bad burger at all. I loved the Freddy’s sauce. The only complaint was that the Freddy’s sauce was only spread at the bottom. But I asked for a little more sauce and the burger was perfect.
The thin Steak burgers were different. It was the perfect amount of meat and toppings. I enjoyed my burger. I ordered onion rings instead of fries. The onion rings, fried and crispy. Very good onion rings.
Other food favorites include chicken tenders, Chili Bowls, a Patty Melt or a Grilled Chicken Breast Sandwich. If you aren’t a meat eater don’t worry there is something for you, Freddy’s Veggie burger with Freddy’s Sauce, cheese, sliced onion, lettuce and tomatoes.
Freddy’s is also known for their delicious desserts. We tried the frozen custard. For those who may not know what custard is, frozen custard originated on New York’s Coney Island. Custard is not ice cream, in fact it is creamer, smoother and richer than ice cream.
The Custards at Freddy’s include toppings like chocolate fudge, caramel, candy and fruit. The custard was very similar to soft serve ice cream, but better.
My husband ordered the Hawaiian Delight Sundae. The sundae included fresh and creamy vanilla custard, pineapple, strawberry, coconut, macadamia nuts, whipped cream and a cherry. We ordered this one without the coconut.
This dessert was so good! Yummy yummy indeed. I can’t wait to go back and get another one.
I ordered the plain Vanilla Custard, pictured above. The custard as I stated earlier is a creamy and rich flavored dessert. Very good even without any toppings on top.
The desserts are not limited to just custard. Freddy’s offers Waffle cones, cake cones and Oreo custard sandwiches just to name a few. Delicious desserts.
One nugget, if you order custard with your meal, be sure to ask the cashier to hold the custard. What that means is that you can go back and pick up your custard after you finish eating your meal. Instead of watching the custard melt.
In addition, Freddy’s has a drive through window if you want to eat on the go.
For the kiddos, buy a Freddy’s Cool Kids Club T-shirts and wear the shirt anytime you buy a kid’s meal and receive a free Oreo custard cookie sandwich, a cone, or a dish of custard. Pretty cool for the kiddos.
Overall we thought that Freddy’s was a nice restaurant. A great place to take the whole family for a cool, relaxed dining experience. The food was good. Though there was nothing that wow’d us. We definitely agreed that it will be a place that we want to take our children.
Freddy’s Custard and Steakburger is located at 2507 Kaliste Saloom Rd, Lafayette, LA 70508. Another location is already in the works near the Cajun Field at 521 Bertrand Drive.
