This place is a hoot! Very small, great food and service with sass! They don't take credit, but you probably have enough cash in your pocket to pay for the very reasonably priced food.

Great little dinner is downtown Grayslake with good prices and a fantastic staff. It's small, old and family run. Wonderful little greasy spoon.

Our server was amazing!
The food was so very good. We went for breakfast and everything was terrific.
The prices are great too!
I would definitely go back when I am in town again.

Fred's Diner is a wonderful old-fashioned diner. It is only open for breakfast and lunch, Monday thru Saturday. It closes at 2 PM. Closed Sundays. The food is good wholesome American fare. In the morning, there are breakfast specials. At lunch, there are lunch specials and a choice of two (sometimes three) soups of the day. All the choices on the menu are great.

The seating is tight but that only adds to its ambiance. The staff will give you a side of attitude but it is all in good fun. Everyone in town eats at Fred's Diner. Fred's Diner only takes cash. No credit cards. No checks.

Been going to Fred's for years. They have the best biscuits and gravy around! It's a small place, but the service is always great and their food is good home made food.
