“Great Burgers and Malts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

I am old fashioned and Love a Malt but they are hard to come by. I have eaten at Fred's location in Alpine since 2007 and loved when he opened in El Cajon and I am a regular now. Great Burgers huge, they have a 2 pounder you can have them cut in 4's and feed a whole family with Burgers the old fashioned way and yummy

“Our family favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

We love Fred's. We frequent Fred's in Alpine and in El Cajon. My kids love the malts and shakes. I think they're burgers are delicious and so does my husband. He and I both love their onion rings. We also enjoy the 50's atmosphere. It's so fun to see the old advertisements and posters. They place has a lot of charm and the food is yummy along with it.
