I ate at Freddy's for the first time yesterday because they now have an east side location at Broadway and Kolb (in the old Long John Silvers building there).
I had an original double cheeseburger, fries and a soda. Anthony had a Chicago dog, fries and a soda. The total of our order came to just over thirteen dollars.
Their burgers comes with pickles, onions and mustard. I dumped the vegetables and substituted ketchup for the mustard.
The burger is salty and tasted okay. Its cooked with a crispy outside which I didn't care for that much. The bun was fluffy which I liked.
Freddy's fries are the shoestring type. They tasted good and were crispy.
Anthony had the Chicago dog which he said was spicy but delicious.
They offer Pepsi products. I don't have a problem with Pepsi, except I like diet soda and Diet Pepsi tastes like cough medicine so I'm always a bit disappointed when that ends up being what is offered.
Overall the service was pretty fast (and the restaurant was busy) and the food was decent.
I have now eaten at all four and these are the order I rank them in according to a combination of service, taste, overall experience, and bang for your buck:
2.) Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steakburgers
4.) Five Guys Burgers and Fries
The reason In-N-Out is ranked number one on my list is because they have the best burgers of the four hands down.
(Note: I did my little review for your information and my own amusement, I was not paid for it nor did I receive free food).

The menu is not too difficult to order from.

The guy in the booth right in front of where I took the photo was also taking a photo.
