Review: Foster's Freeze - Old Fashion Burger

Foster's Freeze is a Californian soft-serve chain that eventually branched out into burgers and fries. I'd never seen a burger Foster's Freeze before this one. I know them mostly as the licensor of frozen desserts for El Pollo Loco, so I was a little curious to try their savory fare.

Their Old Fashion burger features a quarter-pound patty, a slice of American cheese, lettuce, tomato pickles, and Foster All American Sauce (i.e. "secret sauce").

It was $2.99 for the burger.

As far as a standard burger goes, this one was pretty average. All the ingredients were well proportioned without any excess of one or another, but the only thing I really noted was that the lettuce was very nice; a fresh, crispy leaf was folded on itself. Also, it's an onion-less burger.

The cheese was just enough to cover the burger patty and the patty was fairly fresh off the grill.

The bun was a bit lighter than the norm and seemed un-toasted. Not so great if you're getting it to-go as the sauce would absorb into the bun pretty easily.

Overall, Foster's Freeze's Old Fashion burger was just very run-of-the-mill. Decent, but not very memorable.
