Our family loves Frisko Freeze! The cheeseburgers, fries, onion rings, and shakes are all excellent. Expect to wait a few minutes to order as it is almost always crowded! If you are craving a burger, it is worth the wait. Enjoy!

We seen it on one of those "best burgers" and "must try" in WA list so idk how I've always missed this place. Until I ate there. Don't get me wrong, it's not bad at all if someone wanted to go there I'd be fine but it's no where I'd go out of my way to eat. Very basic burgers... More

My husband and I went to the Frisko Freeze with our three year old and the burgers are so amazing! We both got a bacon double cheeseburger and they were hot and greasy, the bacon was crispy and the sauce was a delicious complement!!:D This is literally my new favorite burger I've ever had, I just went 2 days ago...

Well, it's been a really popular burger drive-in since I was a kid, and when I still lived and worked in Tacoma, we'd pop over for lunch most days. They have flavors and methods that I've not been able to replicate either at home or anywhere else. My usual trip is to get off the plane, grab the luggage and... More

Always busy. Great burgers. Ask for fried onions on them. Great juicy burgers. A bit of a wait to get your food but worth the wait. Good milk shakes too. No eating seating, take out only.

Great burger - just enough grease that you feel a little guilty but not enough to stop eating it. Fries - delish. Really. Eating in the parking lot - perfect!

After reading the reviews on this place, I took the family here on a warm summer day just before the lunch rush. There were two others in front of us to order at 1100 in the morning. It took about 20 minutes to receive our food from the time we ordered. I thought the burgers were OK. Nothing special, nothing... More

Every town seems to have old restaurants that everyone cherishes as much for sentimental reasons as the food...Frisko Freeze is one of Tacoma's institutions. If you're like me and collect visits to these local institutions like badges, you should stop here. It's got its old signage and charm still intact. If you are merely looking for food quick and cheap... More
