One cannot be in Tacoma and not stop at Frisko Freeze. Have been eating double cheeseburgers here nearly 40 years. I get extra onions every time. Their fries with a side if tartar are terrific. Run don't walk.

I really enjoyed the hamburger and fries here. The burger had good flavor as did the fries. There is some external seating here but this is primarily a to go burger stand.

I always try to get to Frisco Freeze on my trips to Tacoma. Although their service time takes a bit longer, it is worth the wait. It did bother me to see men with beards (at least 4-5 inches long) with no hair/beard nets over...More
