Freddy’s: High Prices but Quick Service
Food: The food at “Freddy’s”, particularly the steakburgers, are cooked to make sure they are crispy and the cheese is melted. The bun is toasted to perfection and has the right amount of butter to make it taste wonderful. The prices were higher than many quick service places, but were worth it for the amazing food.
Atmosphere: The service at the restaurant is quick and the staff was extremely nice. At “Freddy’s,” the whole staff was friendly and smiling and the managers were walking around asking how everyone’s food was and making sure everyone in the kitchen was doing their job quickly and fully. There were many people eating and having a nice time in the restaurant.
Dessert: The dessert at Freddy’s was different than most places. They have frozen custard instead of ice cream and they make shakes, malts, and concretes, which is a thicker custard you eat with a spoon. The thick texture of the custard and the different add-ins make the custard much better than most ice cream or custard I have ever had.
Cleanliness: The restaurant was clean and wiped down by the staff and the floors were swept and mopped constantly.
The counters were clean and all the tables and seats were nearly spotless.
Overall impression: The restaurant was clean and nice with delicious food. I would give Freddy’s five stars for cleanliness, atmosphere, quick service and tasty food.
Steak n’ Shake: Clean with tasty burgers
Food: The steak burgers at Steak n’ Shake are cooked to make sure the cheese is melted well onto the burger and the toasted bun is cooked for just a little crunch when you bite into the juicy, tasty burger.
Atmosphere: The service at the restaurant is quick and the staff was nice as well. The waiters and waitresses had welcoming smiles and the hostess came quickly to seat us with the waiter immediately following to take our order. The fast, efficient service made for an excellent experience.
Dessert: Steak n’ Shake has shakes like most places have, but it sticks to the name. They make shakes and a few other desserts on a separate menu, but the shakes are thick, sweet and delicious.
Cleanliness: The restaurant was clean and the floors were mopped well to make sure the white tiles were clean. The counters were clean and the kitchen seemed to be kept as well.
Overall impression: Steak n’ Shake is a clean, friendly place with great service and food. The restaurant wasn’t as good as Freddy’s, but still enjoyable. The servers were friendly and give customers plenty of reasons to return.
Overall, Steak n’ Shake was not as good as Freddy’s, but they were both excellent in their own respective ways. Freddy’s was a better experience, but Steak n’ Shake has better food and a little more personal service with the waiters and waitresses. I believe that Freddy’s is a better option for a quick and great tasting meal.
