“Friendly Staff and Home cooked veggies.”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Everyone from Suzie the Manager to the wait staff are friendly and helpful. Home cooked veggies and Southern cooking. Even has pork chops and chicken for breakfast (FRIED of course). Great value for the money!

“Fred's is Southern Food at it's best”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

You can order from the menu, or enjoy the buffet. They have wonderful southern vegtables, BBQ, fried chicken. I absolutely love their breakfast menu. If you are counting calories, stay home. It is child friendly and the prices are reasonable. The restaurant is easily accessible, the staff are all high energy, the restaurant facilities are very clean and the food is great.

“1st time to Fred's”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We had never heard of this chain but a relative recommended we go there - glad we did. Waitress was awesome, loved the idea of " I'm going to take $1.00 of your buffett price if each dirty plate I carry away from your table is empty." What a great concept to not waste food. Everything was excellent, food - service - cleanliness - great dinner. We will go back again.

“Buffet”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Not a fan of buffets. Usually eat too much plus the food here is not worth wasting your calories on. Food usually not hot enough, and overcooked. Might be good for some - just not for us.
