Wow!!

We were on vacation and we stopped here on a recommendation. Had the pull pork sandwich and the super sub, they were Great. Everything was Fresh. After the food went up stairs to the Mercantile- they have everything .

Sandwiches were fresh to order. Liked sitting outside on the porch. We even had a neighbor singing karaoke while we dined. :)

I first went to Fred's over 10 years ago. My college cross country team was on Beech Mountain for the week for cross country camp in August. I have been back to Beech Mountain numerous times since and I always stop at Fred's. The food is good and the atmosphere is even better. You can sit out under the trees... 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).

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 restaurant is on the back of... More

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......
