Freddy’s, a regional steakburger and frozen custard restaurant, recently opened on 135th Street.
Freddy’s is open Sunday – Thursday 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. – 11 p.m.
They have a big following in Wichita and are trying to extend that fan base to Overland Park.
Junior Hank Kellerman, along with several other BV students, got a job at the new location.
“My parents told me about how there is a new restaurant opening up, I applied online and got an interview with the manager the very next day,” he said.
He said Freddy’s offers a unique atmosphere and great-tasting food, which I have to agree with. Walking into Freddy’s was a great experience, and the food made me want to come back.
“It’s like a fast food restaurant but the food tastes like restaurant quality,” Kellerman said.
He said he enjoys working at Freddy’s and the hours fit his schedule well.
“I drive there after school, I start my shift at 4 and I am usually done with my shift by 10:45,” he said. “It’s a lot of fun, I like the people I work with, and long hours.”
Freddy’s features American-style cuisine with menu items like double cheeseburgers, chili dogs and frozen custard at an average cost of $6 a meal.
Their fries are a must-try, they have got a nice seasoning on them and they add a tasty side to your steakburger or hot dog.
The new location is clean, with plenty of tables to sit and enjoy a meal with friends.
It’s nice to see Freddy’s bringing great food and prices to the Overland Park market, but with a lot of similar restaurants opening up, it will have a lot of competition.
Freddy’s gives students a new spot to go out and eat because of their good food and prices.
