After endlessly searching for a place that was either permanently closed or never really existed (except on Delp!), the reduced speed ahead sign welcomed me to Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Just as I was ready to head back to Knoxville, I saw a Freddy's Steakburger. Not even remotely aware of Freddy's (380 stores in 31 states , including Virginia, with 3 in Dubai) I just couldn't pass up a place with a giant illuminated ice cream cone on the side of the building, let alone a steak-burger place. Freddy's opened it's first place in Wichita, Kansas in 2002. Instant success led to two more stores and later franchising rocketed growth to the 380 & Dubai. Their burgers are cooked to order and are never frozen. My Awesome Double steak-burger had two smashed patties, toasted bun, mustard, onions, ketchup and two long pickle stackers. No Coke, just Pepsi. Although I am not really a fan of shoestring fries, mine were still very good.
