Now i have only been to this place once. this past weekend. Wow, what a great breakfast. i love the fact that they have 2 prices on the menu. a regular price. and then there's a discounted price if you eat EVERYTHING on your plate. Call their Want not, Waste not discount. what a great concept. with the rising cost of nearly everything nowadays, an attempt to get customers to not waste food so as to keep cost down is definitely a plus in my book. but back to the food. this is the one place i've been to in a long time where the scrambled eggs were not running or hard and the bacon was crisp and NOT limp. but like i mention. this was my 1st visit. i live in GA so i wont be back anytime soon. so i can only hope it's a great breafast, lunch and dinner everyday. its worthing trying at least once folks.

Fred's Southern Kitchen in Bartow is always bustling. That's because the food is always just right, buffet is always well- stocked, and service is consistently great. It's rare that we wait more than a minute for someone to greet us once we've been seated. The salad bar is healthy and has all the items you would want in a really good salad. Desserts are a southerner's dream. Catfish is crispy and tasty, ribs cooked to perfection, greens, fried green tomatoes, southern veggies, crispy fried shrimp and steak. Two can dine for around $25 (we drink water). They offer a senior discount for folks 55 and over. After your delicious, filling meal, you can rock on the front porch for a spell.

I was in Bartow for business and stopped by Fred's for lunch. It was clean and the staff, who I would imagine had a median age of 86, was very friendly. The Buffet was small there were three meats to chose from - fired chicken, meatloaf and liver - the sides were what you would expect: mashed potatoes green beans ect and were fresh. There was a salad bar that was fresh and had the expected fare. The food needed salt which is to be expected given the demographics of central Florida. Overall it was alright but nothing to write home about.

The service is very good and the food is not at all bad for an $11 buffet. Fresh salad bar, a good variety of meats, vegetables, side items. Soups, deserts, and bread complete the menu. You can also order off a menu if you want. Family atmosphere.
