Brain Freeze

5:10 pm Food

The 50’s diner style restaurant is located in downtown Whitewater, past the train tracks. I personally love their shakes, but let’s see their food.

What was included:

  • 4 chicken tenders
  • choice of dipping sauce

Score: 6/10


The total for the chicken tenders came out to $4.95 plus tax. Honestly, that’s not that the best here in Whitewater. There are 4 tenders that come with, along with the dipping sauces, but no fries or drink. It’s not much of a meal, you’re just paying for the tenders and that’s it.

Score: 6/10

Size Portion

There are 4 chicken tenders that came in the bag, they were more skinnier and a bit thinner than the Culver’s chicken tenders (see Culver’s review). However, you do get four of them. So in a way, you do get a lot and will fill you up, but the tenders themselves are not the average size. Side note: I had more like 3 since two of the tenders were shriveled up and half the size of the other ones.

Score: 7/10

Dipping Sauce

The choices of dipping sauces included:

  • Ranch
  • Southwest Ranch
  • Siracha
  • BBQ
  • Honey Mustard
  • Sweet & Sour

These choices are pretty extensive, I like that there is more than the regular BBQ and ranch options. However, the ranch tasted more mayo-y than buttermilk ranch would taste (I despise mayo). If you like mayo and ranch, this would be the perfect combination of the two; but a despiser of mayo like me, I would shy away from it.

Score: 6/10


The tenders themselves were juicy and the buttermilk batter was pleasant and stayed on the tenders. There’s nothing worse than the batter falling off when dipping it in dressing. It was a perfect amount of crunchy on the outside, and juicy on the outside. After eating the tenders, I did feel sick for the night. The ranch was probably my least favorite, having the mayo-y taste put me off. But like I said, if you like mayo and ranch, this would be pretty good to you.

Score: 6/10

    I really enjoy Brain Freeze’s food! I did some social media marketing for them last year and I got to try so many flavors of the ice cream. All the food was delish! But the ice cream is probably the best on the menu. Great post Auburn!

    Those actually look really good. You said the price came out to under $5 and it would be interesting to see how they compare to culvers. Its cool to see you review these local places though I personally need new places to try in whitewater!

    I really like how you categorized everything according to price, taste, etc. The foodie in me is also intrigued to read more into your reviews, as I enjoy hearing about other’s experiences with restaurants. I have never been to Brain Freeze, and now live in the Madison area, but if I’m ever back in town feeling like a quick treat I’ll have to give this place a try.

    I’ve been to Brain Freeze for ice cream and milkshakes quite a few times. I think their banana milkshake is one of the best I’ve ever had! But I did try the chicken tenders once as well, and they seemed like a bit of a let down to me after I had such high expectations because of the delicious ice cream. Thanks for sharing your review!

    Brain Freeze has great ice cream! I will have to try their shake next time, and stay away from their tenders! Have you tried Rosas icecream? That place is awesome !

    I’ve never had food from Brian Freeze, but I have had their shakes, which I really enjoy. Your post was really descriptive and I enjoyed how you used different categories in your review.
