Phoenix area frozen custard

Speaking of frozen desserts, which it seems we have all been doing quite a bit lately, we have just discovered Freddy's Frozen Custard at 4929 W. Bell in Glendale. According to the web site, other locations are in Indiana, Texas and Oklahoma. I don't have much experience with frozen custard, but on our first visit we were accompanied by Chicago natives with more expertise in the subject, and they found it to be quite acceptable. It is creamy and smooth with a nice eggy flavor, softer than regular ice cream but scooped, not freshly drawn from a soft serve machine. It comes only in chocolate and vanilla, but there are sundaes, shakes and concretes (what the heck is a concrete, anyway?).

Freddy's also serves steakburgers, chicken sandwiches and hot dogs. I can't comment about the steakburgers or hot dogs, but the chicken sandwich is an actual piece of chicken, as opposed to a ground chicken patty, and wasn't dry or overcooked, and the fries were thin and crisp.

We are in the process of buying a house that is not far away and we're calculating the benefits of walking to and from Freddy's for frequent rewards.
