I thought that I’d never meet another American burger to match my love for Shake Shack. It wasn’t love at first bite for those Shake Shack burgers, but then again this post isn’t about them.
This is all about Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers.
Oh Freddy’s, I am so glad that there’s been no hype on you and your fabulous burgers. I hate being disappointed like I was with the much tomtomed burgers from the West. But then again, this post isn’t about them.
This is all about Freddy’s original double steakburger with cheese.
Its pretty simple, yet such divine burger art. The flat patties are smashed on the griddle to create this crispy thin lace of beef all around, which creates a stark contrast in texture against the pillow soft bun and juicy beef patty center as well as the tart crunch of the pickle. Okay, maybe this burger isn’t for those people, who prefer an unbalanced meat vs bread ratio (like The Husband who prefers to have more meat than bread on his burger).
But the ratio of the Freddy’s original double steakburger is perfectly balanced with the right amount of meat, bread, cheese and vegetable (onion and pickles).
I guess I am obsessed with texture. Because the best way to enjoy the Freddy’s original double burger is with French fries. Okay, some of you may think that its ordinary frozen fries, but it is not. Its crispy like PikNik shoestring potatoes, but not exactly like it. It has the crunch of shoestring potatoes, but not too thin that would feel as if you were eating potato chips. You know you’re still eating a heap of French fries.
And the fries are best eaten with a sprinkle of salt and a dip into their special Fry dip, which you can get at a dispenser on the counter where you claim your steakburgers. The fry dip looks like a thousand island dressing, but it is not. Its creamy, yet not as aggressively tomato-ey. It has creaminess, tartness and a nice sweetness that you get from roasted peppers.
How about their frozen custards? Well, you should have one, while you’re at it.
I ordered a concrete, frozen custard mixed with toppings, with my original double steakburger combo meal. My only complaint its that it had too much filling. Okay, that might not even be something to complain about.
This post was all about Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers and that is all I want right now.
