The best hotdog in town

I always get excited when I have the opportunity to have lunch here they say all they're good is good but I always end up getting two hotdogs all the way chilly cheese slaw mayo mustard and ketchup with an order of onion rings. Oh the fresh made pies here are delicious.

We had their Chili dogs with potato tots. Their chili dogs are the best tasting in this area. Potato tots just average tasting. We would recommend this restaurant.

I ordered a large bbq sandwich and a small bowl of bbq beans. It was nothing to get excited about, just a decent meal. The place was as clean as one would expect, and the service was friendly and not lacking. Even though I have had better bbq at many places, I would return.

I have been coming to Fred's for a very long time. I can honestly say I have never ever had a bad experience. The food and the service is top notch which is why I keep coming back for more. I highly recommend them!

The only good thing I can say about this place was, at least they were open when my first two choices had closed.

Recent health score 99. Note - the actual name is Fred's BBQ House. This old time, local, colorfully-decorated establishment is OK but doesn't stand out. You order and pick up at the counter. They have the standard BBQ choices and some other options such as hot dogs. Prices are reasonable. The pulled pork was good but not great. The Brunswick... More

Ordered the BBQ Basket and I was not impressed at all. Fries were stone cold, cole slaw was flavorless and pork sandwich was hot but zero flavor.

Hometown food, awesome prices, and great staff. Classic slaw dog or Brunswick stew are the items to try. Definitely a great place to try if you are in the Atlanta area.

I heard about this place and I decided to try it out. Although the employees are friendly, food was not that great. Also noticed how there were only 2 other people in the restaurant at dinner time which was not a good sign. If a restaurant is great you will usually see a lot of people eating there. I had... More

The Yellow Jackets and rings are the best items on the menu. The service is friendly and happy faces are everywhere. Can't forget about the stew which is best in town!
