Get the X-Con...You can order it with green sauce or red sauce...but if you're brave...order it Christmas style!There are other fantastic choices, but X-Con is where it's at! If you're wanting a good meal...look no further than Fred's!

Although the restaurant was crowded, the service was good. The servings were very generous. And, the fajitas were plenty to split and quite good. The meal our son had was so large, he took half away. We would recommend this place.
