This was my first time since they changed the name. It is the same company. They no longer have a buffet but don't need it. The food was great and my server Neal D was on top of everything I asked for. I didn't have any bar b que. I had the smoked fish with crackers for starters and the fried smoked chicken with baked mac and cheese and collard greens for a meal. Both were more than enough. I couldn't finish it all, but I still had room for the banana pudding. Good food and good atmosphere makes a good eating experience.

This restaurant has the best southern cooking around. The price is low the value is high. The staff was extremely pleasant, well versed on the food. The facility was very clean. The food was just simply wonderful.

We have visited Fred's several times before this visit & were pleased. This time we were not. Poor selection, no seasonings, no bowls, couldn't get dessert. Just not good!

Not the place to go if you're on a diet. But if you're looking for old fashioned comfort food then this is your spot. Great burgers and fried mac & cheese. Also boasts a great selection of ice creams. We wnjoyed wallowing in the nostalgia and the calories.
