Hot Dog or Hamburger? Get 'em Both Together at Freddy's in Victorville


This can't be a new idea--undoubtedly, the hot dog and hamburger combo has been cooked up by stoners before--but I can't ever recall a fast food chain putting America's two greatest meat products on the same bun.

The restaurant is Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, a Midwest chain whose sole California outpost is in Victorville. We stopped by on the way home from a calorie binge in Las Vegas, but unfortunately, I didn't see this limited-time special--touting two perfectly cooked patties and a Vienna Beef wiener--until after we had ordered.


Turns out, the burger on its own is just fine, and, in my opinion, superior to a lot of other fast food fare out there--even our beloved In-N-Out.

The difference lies is in the crispy sear each super-thin patty receives. The meat develops a sturdy crust on both sides, and simple toppings including raw onions, pickle slabs and yellow mustard balance the beef's saltiness. No special sauce necessary.

Even the fries--little potato matchsticks piled high in a plastic basket--were an impressive side. Thankfully this place is almost 100 miles away, so I can't gorge too easily. 

But I do have a new favorite stop when I'm headed to Sin City and back.

I'll throw in the shack burger from The Shack in Playa Del Rey for good measure.  Walk 500' to the beach when your done.

i like freddy's -- i think the beef patties have more flavor than (gasp!) in-n-out.


Niyaz, tell us more about the M&M store in LV.  /me drooling over M&M's.

@20ft: It was awesome! Mostly merchandise, but the wall of M&Ms was jaw-dropping. And in the picture you saw, it's only about half the length of the wall.
