LOGAN SQUARE — It’s officially spring in Logan Square as beloved ice cream stand and burger joint The Freeze has opened for the season.

The wooden boards came down Thursday at The Freeze, 2815 W. Armitage Ave. It is now open 2-10 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday for pickup and delivery. It’s closed on Mondays, owner Tony Zarcone said.

“We want to make sure we gave [our staff] a nice day off to rest,” Zarcone said.

The Freeze will be serving up all of the classics this season, including its signature soft-serve cones and “freezees” (think Blizzards). New menu items include butterscotch-dipped cones, “snowstorm” slushies with soft-serve ice cream, veggie dogs and meatball sandwiches, Zarcone said.

Known for its soft-serve ice cream, no-frills fast food and family-friendly vibes, The Freeze has been a summer staple in Logan Square since its founding in 1950. It was formerly known as Tastee-Freez.
