Best Chain Restaurant

Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steakburger

Staff Pick

If you close your eyes and wish with all your heart, the California-style double steakburger from Freddy's can — almost, maybe, sort of — pass for something on the menu at In-N-Out Burger. So until the beloved West Coast chain makes its way to Missouri (oh God, please), the offerings at Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steakburger are more than sufficient to satisfy your craving for a weighty, sauce-dripping stack of meat on butter-toasted buns. Freddy's patties are smashed flat to maximize their crispiness, and a helping of the mayo-heavy "Freddy's Sauce" means your burger will never be over-dry. The Kansas-based chain affects the hometown décor of a '50s diner, a curious touch considering the franchise was founded in 2004. But faux-corporate tradition can be forgiven when it's accompanied by such a timelessly good burger. 1365 Jungermann Road, St. Peters, 63376. 636-447-2496, www.freddysusa.com.
