Had to stop here since it's a staple of the area but after waiting nearly 50min in the drive through and I'm literally not exaggerating on the time I was not impressed. The burger was good but nothing special ...the friends were thin and limp,...More

Don't get me wrong, Frisko Freeze isn't bad. It's just not really good and the burger and fries are a mediocre value, at best. The place is a local institution and it's cool that it's open late and all. But the small double cheeseburger is...More

For everyone who enjoys junk food: go get a burger at Frisko Freeze. It is a very nice old school takeaway burger joint. The burgers aren't fancy or gourmet burgers but solid fast food. I would always prefer coming here before going to MacDonald's or...More

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

I've been going here for about fifty years. It has never changed and won;t because of registration on the historic register. The burgers still come in translucent envelopes and are about as greasy as they can get, chock full of chopped onions. It's a classic...More

Came with my friend for a drive thru burger snack after a really disappointing hot dog elsewhere. The burgers are the best I had whilst staying in the USA, though very greasy. The chips were great too but the portion size was big. Was a...More

Best blackberry milkshakes. Great fries. Greasy burgers. Good pickles. If it's busy, be prepared for a wait. Sometimes a really long one--like 10+ minutes. Which is interminable if you're starving. But the burgers are consistently good, if a but expensive. And don't ever use the...More
