A good old-fashioned ice cream stand. Brings you back to a simpler time. Service is usually pretty good, There tends to be more interesting crowds around the place as the evening progresses. You have to check it out. Its very close to downtown Tacoma and...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

I've basically been coming here since I was born. Every time I come home I go to Frisko Freeze. Try the double Cheeseburger. The fries and Onion rings are good. But, the Banana Chocolate Shake is the best.

Old time Seattle folks have allegiance to Dicks or Kidd Valley, but when in Tacoma, a stop at Frisco Freeze is almost a pilgrimage experience. Burgers, fries and shakes like they used to be and like they will always be, as long as places like...More

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...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...More
