Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, a national chain serving classic American diner food, opens in the Old Capitol Town Center Tuesday.
Facing Clinton Street and sandwiched between Noodles and Company and what will soon be a Panera Bread, the first downtown Iowa City Freddy’s location seats 110 guests, with additional patio seating in warm weather months. The restaurant is open from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
Steven Young, Freddy’s operating manager, said the brand is famous for its double steakburger, shoestring fries and “the best custard in the country.” He also recommends the cheese curds. Freddy’s sandwich, fries and drink combos cost $7.39-8.19 — prices comparable to fellow steakburger/custard chain Culver’s.
