AMES, Iowa – Fast-casual restaurant concept, Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, makes its Ames debut in Campustown on Thursday, Jan. 11, at 2420 Lincoln Way, Ste. 102 near Iowa State University. Freddy’s is known for its lean ground-beef steakburgers, Vienna Beef hot dogs and crispy shoestring fries, as well as premium dessert treats prepared with a choice of chocolate or vanilla frozen custard that is churned fresh several times throughout the day.
“Our focus on genuine hospitality and fast, friendly service makes us a desirable lunch and dinner choice for those who live, work and attend school in the area,” said Mike Young, franchise owner. “We’re a convenient stop for the I.S.U. students and staff to grab a quick bite to eat, and we’re also a great spot for groups to meet up after sports games and other events. We take pride in being a part of the community and being a good neighbor to the residents and businesses in the neighborhood.”
The 2,700 square-foot space in the Kingland building seats 82 guests. Hours of operation are Sunday through Thursday 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.
“First-time guests often ask, ‘What makes a Freddy’s steakburger special?’,” said Young. “Every burger is cooked to order. We start with premium lean ground beef, sprinkle on our famous seasoning, press the patty thin, and sear on a flat-top grill until the edges are deliciously crispy. We regularly recommend the Original Double, which comes standard with two patties, two slices of cheese, mustard, onion slices and pickle planks.”
