Freddy’s opens first area location in Grimes

December 19, 2022

GRIMES, Iowa – Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers®, a fast-casual restaurant concept, opens Saturday, Dec. 17, at 2151 E 1st St. in front of Menards. The new restaurant marks the first Freddy’s location in the Des Moines metro area. Freddy’s is known for its cooked-to-order steakburgers made with lean 100 percent ground beef, all-beef hot dogs, crispy shoestring fries and frozen custard treats made with freshly churned chocolate or vanilla frozen custard.


“At Freddy’s, we provide high-quality, cooked-to-order menu items in a fun and comfortable environment,” said Steven Young, franchise operator. “When you walk in, you can expect a warm greeting with a smile, and you’ll leave with a desire to again return and experience genuine hospitality we call the ‘Freddy’s Way.’”


The 3,523 square-foot, freestanding restaurant seats 88 guests, has additional seating on the patio and drive-thru service. Mobile ordering through the Freddy’s app and website is also available. Hours of operation are 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.


“The Original Double is a signature favorite that we like to recommend to first-time guests who want to get a feel for the Freddy’s taste,” said Young. “It starts with two steakburger patties pressed thin and caramelized around the edges, but domed and juicy in the center. The burger is topped with two slices of cheese, onions, pickle planks and mustard, all served on a toasted bun. Give it a try and finish off your meal with our fan favorite Signature Turtle Sundae!”
