Fanci freez is a fly place to eat. They have an old fashioned kind of feel and the food is dope on a rope. Really good selection of milkshakes. The tator tots are always crispy and yummy

Remember this place from when i was a kid. Dad used to take us kids there for a special reward. I remember hoping each Saturday he would take us there. Those were the days. Boston shakes, dipped cones, tater tots with the special sauce. Mmmm

Great prices! Great food! Amazing ice cream! Great service! I took my son there one hot afternoon and boy were they busy! We got in a huge line up front, but it moved so quickly. They have a cool mister that keeps you comfortable while you wait too.And nice tables to sit at outside and eat. The employees were so busy but still took the time to make sure everyone left with a smile on their faces! Im in the service business so Im always looking for great service and Fanci Freez...2 thumbs up! My son is a devoted customer now. Try the oreo ice cream cone!

Awesome shakes and food! Great prices! Great service! Great fries! My son and I went to Fanci Freez on a hot afternoon and they were busy! We had to wait in a long line, but it moved so quickly and they have a cool mister that keeps you comfortable while you wait. But the wait is sooooo worth it! And you have to try an oreo cone! Delicious! 2 thumbs up, Fanci Freez. My son loves it now.

My one star goes to the quality of their ice cream products. Even that is not enough of a draw for me to ever return. My complaint is with the customer service my husband and I received from the owner. I ordered a crispy chicken sandwich which, unbeknownst to me, contains horseradish sauce instead of mayonnaise. I have never even heard of someone using horseradish sauce on a chicken sandwich. I hate horseradish sauce. When I took it to the counter to see if I could get a new one the man at the counter told me he would not get me a new one but he would give me a discount on a new bun. Of course I said no, the whole sandwich was covered in horseradish which has a very strong flavor. I was upset but was just going to let it go. My husband considered this treatment unacceptable. He also tried to get the sandwich exchanged for a new one. The man at the counter told him the same thing he told me. When my husband asked for a manager the man said, "I am the f****n owner." So my husband told him we would never do business with Fanci Freeze again and the man said, "Good, don't come back." So, this business owner lost two customers for life over one chicken sandwich. Smart move, huh?

Fanci Freeze has been at 14th and State in Boise since antiquity. (Contrary to another review, there's nothing wrong with the location. Its on one of the main roads through town, just outside of downtown (about 3/4 mile West of the State Capitol building, and just a couple of blocks from the site where the Albertson's grocery chain was founded). It's close to schools and businesses as well as residential.

Fanci Freeze was already a longstanding landmark when I was growing up in Boise in the 1970's. It was always a great place to go for a frozen treat - as a kid my favorite were the dipped cones.

Recently (March 2006) I was in town for the first time in years and found that Fanci Freeze was not only still there, but freshly renovated by a new owner and still featuring the outstanding ice cream menu with a dizzying array of flavors. I sampled one of the Boston Shakes - a milkshake with a sundae on top - and was every bit as pleased with the quality as when I was a munchkin.

It is amazing that no one has picked up on this and kept the concept alive on a larger scale. But maybe it's just as well to keep it unique, an oasis of quality in a cookie-cutter fast food world.

PROS: A class act and in a class by itself.
CONS: Be prepared for a sugar rush - but worth it.

I love the variety here and the feel of an old fashioned icecream joint. I recently had the large dipped cone and they were not kidding about it being large. They are known for their boston shakes. A milk shake with a sundae on top. Super tasty. The prices are reasonable. A must go to place in Boise.

Fanci Freeze makes great milkshakes! They have a wide variety of flavors to choose from, and you can mix and match. My personal favorite is chocolate-pumpkin (it sounds gross but try it). The local and atmosphere is a little sketchy... but just go through the drive-thru and it'll be ok.
