Having a meal at Freddy Junior’s is like chewing on a lollipop before a trip to the dentist - there are better ideas out there, but the heart wants what it wants. The burgers and hot dogs here are great in a Five Guys kind of way, and we like that they also sell sliders if you’re not starving. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, but if you’re going to take one piece of advice from us about this place, it’s that you should not get anything to go unless you like soggy food.
