Always a favorite for a great burger or chicken breast sandwich. Lots of deep fried sides options. Not my first choice for “healthy food”, but you can enjoy a mug of beer or your favorite cocktail, too.

Best selection quick service and a very nice touch of potato chips instead of just having French fries. My family and I have been there multiple times and will continue to return.

Great spot if you’re in the mood for a great burger. Burgers were juicy and cooked perfectly. The place was clean and friendly. I will definitely be back.

Didn’t realize I would become my own waitress when I arrived. I was not impressed with a half cooked, greasy burger that was on a soggy bun. I don’t think I’ll be back again, or recommend.

Best hamburger ever. Great and friendly employees. Local ownership for at least 35 years. Chips are unbelievable. Jim Peterson

Burgers are ok but greasy. Gotta love the cheese fries. Johns main event 2 doors down has way better food all around

Family was in the mood for burgers & everyone wants it different from plain to spicy and everything inbetween. Fred's didn't disappoint. Kids meals are great as well with the option of no fries and applesauce replacement! For first timers... Fried food will come to...table usually before you get your burgers. Almost forgot to mention that only fresh potatoes and meat are used!More

My DH said there was a place he would go to years ago in Burlington for a really good burger, so we looked it up and sure ‘nuff, it was still there! We stopped in, placed an order at the bar (where ALL orders are...placed) got 2 beers and waited only a few, maybe 5, minutes for our order. This was not just a good burger, but a great one! And quite reasonable. We also had a large order of fries that were pretty good, too. The bathrooms were very clean, the tables were wiped clean, and the people behind the bar and those delivering and clearing the tables were all very friendly. Next time we are out in that area we will be stopping again.More

We always enjoy a stop in this local favorite. It may be busy and small, but tables turn over quickly. Good basic burgers.
