Frugals: The place for a milkshake and quick lunch in Kalispell, Montana
Anytime I am near south Kalispell, Montana, and I am hungry, I make a stop at Frugals for a quick bite.
You will find Frugals as you drive into Kalispell on Hwy 93, it is on your right-hand side as you enter Kalispell. If you pass the Outlaw Inn, you have gone too far.
Frugals is a drive-through ONLY restaurant. There is no place to sit down. The fun thing is that the drive-through goes on both sides of the building, so if you have a passenger in your vehicle that can pay at the window, you will want to drive through to the left if there is a line on the right. (I find that there is generally a line to the right, because many people do not have passengers.)
My favorite thing about Frugals are their thick, yummy milkshakes. Chocolate is my favorite, but they have other flavors, too.
They also have delicious burgers, and yummy fries. My favorite is the grilled chicken sandwich. Their burgers and chicken sandwiches taste like “real” food — not like it has been packaged and frozen for months and then cooked and sat on a warmer for hours on end.
Pay with cash if you can, because there is a small surcharge for using a card.
Here is a small version of their menu, but they have lots of other things in Kalispell, too! (It wasn’t until I researched their website that I realized that they also have a few other locations outside of Montana, in the northwest United States.)
Have fun!! I hope you enjoy Frugals if you are looking for a quick, easy lunch as you enter the beautiful Flathead Valley!!!
