Amazing Biscuits!

In a town where every sign says "Famous" or "Best" for just about every restaurant or shop, Fred's does not make such claims to fame. But it should! The biscuits in the morning are the best and we went there every single morning during our trip. We were sad to leave those biscuits. The... read more

We loved the fresh raisin bread with the sweet icing. I can't wait to go back. Just note they stop breakfast and there is a little dead time before the serve lunch.

We ate here while getting a few things at Fred's. We ordered the Philly Cheese steak which was dry along with the club sandwich (good).

I visit Beech Mountain every MLK weekend and have eaten at Fred's many times. We typically have a late breakfast or early lunch. The food, service, atmosphere, and price is great! Fred's is most definitely the best place to grab lunch while in Beech Mountain!

My wife and I were looking for lunch on Beech Mountain and were pleased that Tripadvisor had a few suggestions for us. We chose Fred's Backside Deli and were very glad we did. We ordered a bowl of the soup of the day which was delicious and large enough to share. The day we visited Fred's was offering Creamy Spinach.... More

I can't speak for their lunch or dinner options, but breakfast was prefect. Not a huge menu, but anything you crave for breakfast can be found here. I had the "Fred muffin" and a waffle with hashbrowns on separate occasions and thought it was delicious both times. The staff were super friendly and fast despite the bus loads of people... More

Made a special trip to Fred's for lunch yesterday (Oct 5) - got there about 2:47PM -- staff told us grill closes @ 3PM & wouldn't serve us lunch. It is a "journey" for us to get there, used to go about twice a year. Probably won't go again......

We stopped in to see the store as we were passing through and noticed the deli. I wish we hadn't. The staff were super nice and friendly, but the food was not tasty and my stomach burned the whole day after which it usually does after poor quality food. My Hawaiian chicken sandwich could have been decent but the thin... More

We stumbled across Fred's deli basically by accident. We were on Beech Mountain for the first time and stopped into the store one morning to get some drinks for the day, when we noticed the deli downstairs. Since we were heading out to do some biking on the trails, we decided to get a breakfast sandwich to go. We both... More
