After over a year of rumors circulating the Stateline, Lowe’s in Machesney Park will finally gain a new neighbor next month!

Yup, Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers is finally calling Machesney home. Originally, they were set to open January 1st, 2021, but construction was on hold due to Covid.  This is a major deal considering this is the first ever Freddy's in the Stateline!

So when is Freddy's really opening?  April 12th, 2022!


Every Freddy’s steakburger starts with premium, lean, 100% ground beef – no additives or fillers. Freddy’s way may take a little longer, but that’s what makes Freddy’s steakburgers so special.


Yes, you could go to Steak 'N Shake or Culver's to get a juicy burger, but you won't be able to get Freddy's FAMOUS seasoning anywhere else!

Don't even get me started on their frozen custard selection... YUM!

I'm a sucker for a dirt sundae, or better yet: Dirt 'N Worms Sundae from Freddy's!  You can even get their frozen custard TO-GO, pints and quarts are available in your favorite flavors for purchase!

Who says your furbabies can't have a taste of Freddy's?  Get them a Pup cup to enjoy while you indulge in the savory flavors of steakburgers, hot dogs, cheese curds, onion rings, and chili cheese fries!

Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers will have their Grand Opening on April 12th at 9901 Orlando St Machesney, IL 61115. Their hours: Sunday-Thursday 10:30am-10:00pm, Friday/Saturday 10:30am-11:00pm.

Their dining room better look as cool as this one, Instagram photos are a MUST!
