This is one of Sioux City, Iowa's best pizza facility's. Great sauce whether you pick original or spicy. The original sauce is fantastic. Price is right. The inside of the building is well designed for individual and big party's. If you like pizza you will love this one.

Seriously thought this place was named Alfredo's when our family kept telling us about it so we were a touch surprised when we finally visited and saw the name El Fredos. I'm not a language expert but el credo sounds like a Mexican joint. Always, great pizza. The sauce is out of this world! The restaurant is really well put... More

Great family owned pizza. They have a jumbo size (18") which is rare these days. Sauce is slightly spicy and is the star of the za.

We had heard how amazing this place was since we moved here about a year ago, but had never gone. We finally decided to try it a couple of weeks ago for our anniversary. We were expecting a "traditional" sit down restaurant, so we were shocked to find more of a lunch-counter type of situation, where you order your food... More

A Sioux City staple for great pizza. Video games for the kids while you have a short wait. TVs in multiple rooms for the adults. My wife loves the pepperoni, pineapple and jalapeño. Price is right and they have shopper specials coupons that you can pick up in the foyer making it even more affordable. Sorry no pics because we... More

When in High school and after I lived on their pizza. Probably the best ever ! A bit spicy and a bit sweet, but you can wash it down with a cold beer...Very good and the price is right!

I always have to stop by El Fredo's when in Sioux City. Amazing pizza sauce and blue cheese. If you're ordering lasagna, ask for a layer of original sauce be put on there before they add the cheese. For the salads (if you happen to be getting one), ask for French and Blue Cheese dressing. Their house blue cheese is... More

You can't go wrong with an El Fredo's pizza. This is not a chain restaurant, its one of a kind. It has been in Sioux City, Iowa for as long as I can remember. Its not a fancy place, but a nice place to go with friends and family! Better get there early because by 5:00 pm the parking lot... More

I have been going to El Fredo's for over 40 years. Their pizza has a distinctive authentic flavor. The service is great and the atmosphere friendly.
