This is def an off the beaten path place...it has been here forever and still has great breakfast. Food is so much better then the commercial places down the road! Freds looks scary from the outside and even the inside, but if you want a cheap, big home-cooked meal, this is the place. It is always busy and there is a reason for this- simply awesome food at great prices. They do take credit cards now and have wifi!

The food is awesome. The bacon and eggs are always perfect and never disappoint after a rough night! They even have wifi there. The prices are great too. The only downside is that when the place is full and you have to sit in the back room it can be a little cramped.

This is comfort food at it's best. Down home breakfast not for the faint of "heart".

Iam loyal to Woody's in portage lakes, however, fred's is the best. I make my dad take us there when we visit him in C Falls. It a greasy spoon, but the best greasy spoon in Akron.!

consistenly good breakfast and lunch food; soups are good, pancakes, sandwiches. The place used to be smoky but believe that's not allowed now so that's an improvement. Laid back, friendly, very reliable. The kind of place you could go to every morning.
