We’re back again to continue our Friday Night Lights walk down memory lane. We’ve covered a lot of the remaining locations already but still have a few more to go! This week we’re taking you to the Tasty Pfreeze. You might recognize the odd shaped building from the FNL opening credits and pilot episode. Sadly Tasty Pfreeze has permanently closed but the building is still standing so we suggest you get pictures while you can!
2700 West Pecan Street
This gem of an establishment in the shape of a giant ice-cream cone may not have been mentioned in more than the pilot episode but it’s in the opening credits of the series with the name of Twisters. We’ve mentioned before that scenery is very important in story telling and you might be thinking it’s a giant ice-cream cone how can it be that important? Dillon is a fictional small west Texas town and a giant ice-cream cone shaped building is pretty on point with small town Texas. Whether or not you want to read into its cinematic effect it’s still a great place to stop and take a picture, while you still can. Though it might not be white with stripes anymore or even yellow, we still recommend the stop! Especially since Tasty Pfreeze is located in Pflugerville just down the street from ‘West Dillion High School’ and ‘Panther Field’. You can find ALL the filming locations still standing here.
As always, we encourage you to check out local filming locales, stop and take pictures but please be mindful. These locations are not just prop houses or buildings but real homes and establishments. Be respectful and courteous with your approach.
We highly recommend a driving tour of the FNL filming locations. It’s actually a great way to get out of the house while still practicing social-distancing! Looking for other FNL filming locations? Check out this post that documents ALL of the filming locations still standing as of Fall 2019.
