“We are sooooo full right now.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2010

Believe the good reviews - they're true. The food is good. They are supposed to close at 3p on Sundays. I think they have a hard time getting the people to stop eating by three!

The servers are great girls that are high school honor students. The food is always fresh! Never sitting out for hours, I specially love the catfish and handmade desserts!

“Southern food at its best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2009

My husband has had lunch here many times and we were passing through Plant City and stopped for dinner. What a treat and nice surprise! Very friendly staff, GREAT food and very clean! We had the buffet & everything was hot. One taste of the mashed potatoes & you know they are real! The best mashed pots I've ever had in a restaurant. We live over an hour away but will return. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Highly recommend this restaurant. The ribs fell off the bone. They also own Johnson's BBQ next door...maybe we'll try that next time!

“Well worth the visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2008

We used to enjoy Buddy Freddies when the Johnson family owned it but won't go any more, It became nasty after they sold it. We were delighted when Fred Johnson opend Fred's Market Restaurant. We dine there at least once a week and absolutly love the staff and enjoy the food. this is not a foo foo dining spot, it's just good food served buffet style. Lots of fresh vegtables an expansive salad bar and the entrees are sure to please. You can also order off the menu which has some very nice salads and one of the best cheeseburgers. The french fries are the big steak fries and they are very good as well. It's worth mentioning the familys barbeque restaurant next door is also outstanding.
