I visited Fred's for the first time yesterday evening. I ordered the chicken tenders with sweet potato fries (which the waitress said cost extra as a side, even though the menu lists them normally with all the other sides and no mention of extra cost). Before I was even back home (a 30 min drive), my stomach was turning. I... More

We stopped for a drink on Sunday only to find the only thing available was 3.2 beer. Since we were there looked over the menu and settled on the hamburgers. They were quite good and the fries were fresh. The young lady taking care of us was very pleasant and did her best. There seemed to be a lot of... More

Food was a great value. I had the sirloin steak and it was perfect. Dinner for 4 adults, no alcohol, and 2 desserts was $46. Coming from NYC to visit my son at the Base, I was disappointed with the shy nature of most Okies. Our waitress was very sociable.

Let face it, the choices in Altus is limited, especially if you do not want fast food chain food. This was our first visit to Altus and we were trying different restaurants while in town.

Chicken fried steak is a country eating classic ruined by cheap breading and low grade meat. This place is overpriced for the quality of the service and food received. The food is as edible as a typical airplane meal and leaves you questioning yourself afterwards if it was worth it. Just drink a Dr. Pepper or something and skip the... More

We occasionally go there. The staff is young and not very friendly. They are there because they need a job. The food is just average nothing special about it. They are known for the chicken fried steak for $4.

It is hard to choice which is worse food or teh service. Do yourself a favor get a can of potted meat the cheap kind will taste better.
