“Great hamburgers and grilled chicken burgers”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We just ate at Fred's in Alpine before flying back to England later today. My husband said his hamburger was delicious and so was my chicken burger. As for the chips, they were crinkly and crispy and miles ahead of MacDonald's fries. MacDonalds has just opened up the road from Fred's so please do give this excellent burger cafe a try.

“Hands down best burger in San Diego county.”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

To go with that mind blowing burger you can order crinkly fries and they are so hot and crispy with soft centers. The best part of the burgers are the juicy patty and crispy edges. The root beer actually tastes like old fashion root beer. If that we're not enough check out the cars on the car weekends out there. Good place for motorcycle groups to collect for a good bite. One of San Diego's best kept secrets.

“Great Burgers and Malts”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

I am old fashioned and Love a Malt but they are hard to come by. I have eaten at Fred's location in Alpine since 2007 and loved when he opened in El Cajon and I am a regular now. Great Burgers huge, they have a 2 pounder you can have them cut in 4's and feed a whole family with Burgers the old fashioned way and yummy
