Who’s up for a double steakburger, shoestring fries, and a chocolate sundae? You will find all these and more at Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, which recently opened at The Dubai Mall. There’s also a second branch at the Mall of the Emirates.
Freddy’s is a fast-casual restaurant chain that originated from Wichita, Kansas. Having established more than 300 branches all over the United States, the company opened its first ever international location (owned and operated by Tastebuds Group) at The Dubai Mall.

First, a bit of history… Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers was co-founded in 2002 by brothers Bill and Randy Simon, along with restaurateur Scott Redler. They named the restaurant after Bill and Randy’s father, Freddy Simon, a World War II veteran.
With a menu offering steakburgers, hotdogs, chicken sandwiches, and frozen custard delights — Freddy’s soon became a hit, and began opening branches across the country. Today, there are more than 340 branches in 32 states. In 2018, the company signed an agreement with Tastebuds Group to open branches in the Middle East, starting with Dubai!

Throwback to ‘50s-style Diners
Freddy’s is inspired by the “made-to-order” meals of the ‘50s era, during which American diners served up delicious food enjoyed by the whole family.
What exactly does Freddy’s menu offer? Here is a quick preview:
- Steakburgers. Made from 100% premium ground beef, Freddy’s burger patties are cooked to order and served hot! Diners can opt for Single, Double, or even Triple-patty Steakburgers topped with bacon, melted cheese, mustard, onions, and pickles… Need we say more?!
- Hot Dog & Chicken. Aside from signature steakburgers, the menu includes Freddy’s Hot Dog, Chicago Dog (Freddy’s Style), Crispy Chicken Sandwich, and Grilled Chicken Breast Sandwich. There’s also a Veggie Burger for the non-meat eaters out there!
- Sides. To complete your meal, don’t miss Freddy’s Shoestring Fries, Cheese Fries, Onion Rings, and Chicken Tenders. Yum!
- Frozen Custard. For dessert, the restaurant offers its signature Turtle Sundae or Concrete, Chocolate Brownie Delight Sundae or Concrete, Waffle Cone, and other delights.

Frozen Custard, Concrete… What?!
In case you were wondering, frozen custard is made through a unique churning process that minimizes excess air and ice crystals. The result? A cool treat that is smoother, richer than your usual ice cream — and always served fresh at Freddy’s!
As for the “Concrete” name, this came about because Freddy’s Frozen Custard, when mixed with some candy, caramel, chocolate, and fruit toppings, becomes so thick — like concrete — that it can be served upside down! Cool!
I tell you, the custard Concrete dessert was something else. The texture almost seemed cake-like that I felt it was quite indulgent to have it. But it’s something I would recommend to those who have sweet tooth.
