We had been hearing about this place for over a year but had never been. So we found ourselves in Plant City last month and decided to give it a try. We went in time for the lunch special which made it inexpensive so my sister and I were happy with that. The food was pretty good. One thing I... More

Buddy Freddy's was my introduction to Fred's. We stopped while traveling and wanted to stay over and nap afterwards. The food was soooooo good it reminded me of some my grandmother or mom would've made. Love!!

Why is it people have lost the ability to welcome you to their establishment, to smile, and pretend they are glad you are there? When the service is excellent that kinda makes up for the food not being good, the place is not really clean, even when the wait staff works harder at keeping food stuff off the floor than... More

Ours was a breakfast visit and we found the staff pleasant and friendly providing an efficient service. The eating was buffet style with plenty of items for those of a sweet tooth, but a limited selection, compared with other nearby similar eateries. The food was refreshed frequently as the place was quite busy

Food is excellent, true southern cooking. It is a little expensive since it's a buffet, with a drink you'll spend about $15 per person. My only complaint is the last few times we've eaten there, I really don't even eat that much and I get full real quick and I've had a stomach issue each time for a few hours... More

If you are hungry this is the place to go. It is nothing fancy but similar to other buffets like Golden Corral.

Live their fresh vegetables on the buffet. This place prides themselves with fresh veggies and fried chicken along with many other entrees. The waitress was attentive and the place is very clean. Will definitely go there again.
