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

Reasonable priced, delightful atmosphere and delicious selections at this quaint and unique cafe located on the bottom floor of the eclectic Fred's at Beech Mountain. NOT recommended if you are in a rush, but the good food takes time and the wait is worth it. Peruse the store while you wait.

Quick, friendly service, and fresh well-prepared food. Based on the conversations going on, I am guessing many of the customers on this Sunday morning are regulars. Everyone was super friendly and the food could not have been better. Fresh, Full-American breakfast to $6 Bucks ? Not many places you can find that.

Located downstairs from Freds Mercantile, the deli is open for breakfast and lunch. We ordered our meal then sat out on the patio and enjoyed the cool weather. The food was served quickly and was delicious! Try this deli at least once during your stay on Beech mountain!

Very interesting general store in the mountains. The restaurant part of the business is downstairs and has beautiful outside dining area. Service was very good. Prices reasonable. Food good. I will visit again next time I am in the area.
