Online Ordering is not yet functional, so for now:
Frugals is situated on the left-hand side of a one-way street at the east end of Port Angeles. So, if you roll into Port Angeles from the east, you'll enter town on Front Street, and nearly immediately find Frugals on the left side of the left lane less than 1/2 block after McDonalds. If you're already in the left lane as you pass the McDonalds, it is an easy matter to simply turn left into one of Frugals' ordering lines.
If you enter Port Angeles from the west, follow Highway 101 as it turns into Lincoln Road. Continue following the Highway-101-East signs onto First Street, which is two lanes both heading east. After passing the Ennis Road intersection, move into the left lane so that you can bear left at the connector road leading vehicles back onto the west-flowing Front Street. As above, Frugals is just a half-block from McDonalds on the left side of Front Street.
Frugals is a fast-food drive-through hamburger restaurant. Two lanes bring cars to two order-takers. The lane on the left of the restaurant results in conversations with the vehicle's passenger, which works great when there is a passenger.
People love Frugal's, if the long lines of cars at mealtimes are any indication! Yes, it is fast food, but it is a cut above the usual, and the shakes are really special.
Fun Fact: Frugals is actually one of a very, very small chain of drive-through restaurants. Five drive-through locations and one food truck, at six locations in the United States of America, bear the "Frugals" name.
Frugals was first established in June of 1988 in our very own town of Port Angeles, Washington, by Peter and Shelia Stewart. The restaurant was immediately successful, perhaps because of the extensive market research that preceded their decision to open a fast food restaurant.
The second Frugals restaurant opened in Tacoma just two years later in 1990, followed by a third in Auburn, Washington in October, 2000. The remainder of Frugals locations are in Montana: in Kalispell, in Missoula, and in Columbia Falls which is the location of the Montana food truck. (Look for them if you're headed that way!)
According to the mission statement on their website, Frugals' mission is to provide the "highest quality product at the lowest possible price. The best consumer experience in the industry. Respect for our employees, business partners, and community."
Frugals is honestly quite good, I don't usually say that about fast food burger places but it is definitely worth your attention if you're interested in a fast meal. I am not saying that it is the absolute best place in the whole area because I would be lying, but for the price, it is good. My sister and I eat here quite a bit.
Their milkshakes are also really good. They have a seasonal lavender shake that is delicious.
But the most memorable thing for me is the fact that they offer raspberry tea to drink that is really good. My sister and I consistently get it with our food and we love it. It's refreshing and different from soft drinks and other drinks that you usually get with fast food.
