So, we all have one…you know, that favorite whole-in-the-wall diner where everything tastes just a little better than anywhere else. In my hometown, Tastee Freez is the undisputed king of restaurants. This family-owned and run restaurant has always been the place-to-be. The funny thing about Tastee Freez is that it hasn’t had that official name since I was a kid!
Somewhere around 40 years ago, Tastee Freez changed it’s name to Ed’s Restaurant, but the locals didn’t seem to notice. Oh, they all know the name on the sign, but you will likely never hear them refer to it that way.
I recently met a woman who moved to town a few years ago. She kept hearing people talk about Tastee Freez, so she decided to give it a try. She drove up and down the road searching, but never saw the sign. Only later did her co-workers solve the mystery by explaining that the restaurant is actually called Ed’s.
I haven’t lived in my hometown for thirty years, but I wouldn’t dream of a visit home without several trips to Tastee Freez. Evidently, my sentiments are shared by all my childhood friends who also post about their pilgrimages to Tastee Freez on their visits home!
Just in case I’ve sparked your interest in my all-time favorite burger joint, Ed’s Restaurant is located in DeFuniak Springs, Florida. It is located on Highway 90; the traffic pipeline for mainland beach-goers on their way to Sandestin beach.
Ed’s is the home of the pub burger, which was recently voted the best burger in West Florida. If you ever find yourself in the area, stop by “Tastee Freez.” You will not be disappointed! My Tastee Freez (AKA Ed’s Restaurant) gives me that familiar taste of home.

Looks like a fun, hometown diner! It’s funny how we keep the memories and call it what it once was, isn’t it? I have a place like that back home, but didn’t make it. I just mentioned to my stepmom today that I never made it there.
I am from a small town, so there wasn’t much to distract me from going 😉
Hi Shellie, I remember that dinner, the one in my home town, it was called the Arctic Circle, home of the french fry sauce. The best burgers & fries in town!!! 🙂
#OMHGWW is now in progress, if you have time I would love to have you stop by.
Have a beautiful week!
I just posted! When was the last time you went there?
