When I lived in New Orleans I would drive to Crowley to have Frosto hamburgers and shrimp at Cajun Way. The other food here is really, really good. The make their sandwiches and plate lunches from scratch. The last time I was there there wasn't a hint of Sysco.

The best & freshest hamburgers around! Very good hand battered onion rings too, which I am always on the look out for! I had the Cajun burger which has grilled onions & Cajun seasoning. It had the perfect amount of seasoning! I didn't have room for the ice cream but can't wait to go back just for ice cream!!

Frostos has been around a long time. Last week I had the roast beef sandwich (toasted) and fries, along with their ice cream. Clearly, this was the BEST roast beef sandwich I have had in years and the fries were golden, hot and full of flavor. Wow! A rock and roll diner interior complements the experience. This was our second... More

A lot of kids go here after school to eat and hangout. So avoid going if it's 3:30 if you don't like a crowd. The milkshakes are delicious so are the chicken strips. You can tell they take their time when they prepare your food and care about your service.

Our family enjoying this stop on our roadtrip. We all ate burgers, fries, onion ring and most importantly shakes! Although the girl at the counter appeared as though she'd rather be anywhere that where she was, the food was great. The kids meal came in a very cute paper car. My son still has the car. :-)

I've had food from here before but this was the first time I had actually eaten here since it was an ice cream stand in my childhood days. It looks great!! I've had the same thing every time admittedly but their grilled chicken sandwich on a wheat bun is delicious!!

If you are looking for very good food and in Crowley LA, then Frosto Diner is the place. It is like stepping into the past. The restaurant has been there since 1951 serving the same hamburgers and ice cream since they opened. The staff are friendly and Brenden the manager is wonderful. Great place to eat.

I read the 4 bad reviews people write from last year. I agree is its sort of hard to find but it wasn't that bad. The wait time wasn't that bad either. About 15 mins before we had our food given to us. Bathrooms were tidy and clean. Over all a decent place to eat. We ordered the hamburger streak... More

Since 1956, Frosto has been family owned and operated. Helen Lafosse began Frosto intent on serving a quality product. Today that commitment to quality is carried on by the third generation of family members.Frosto’s Old Fashioned Hamburgers remain the best in town because they are made from scratch and cooked fresh when you order. Low Fat ice milk is the cornerstone of Frosto’s malts, shakes, floats, frosties, sundaes, parfaits, flurries, and banana splits. Over the years Frosto’s menu has expanded but quality was never sacrificed.Located in the heart of the historic district in Crowley, Louisiana, Frosto has great food, great service, and a great family tradition. There is no reason for you not to have a good meal today!!!Call ahead or come by and enjoy our fabulous 50’s dining.
