“Good home cooking with authentic New Mexican dishes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2011

We stopped after a trip to Bosque Redondo Memorial for dinner. The food was fresh and well made. The green chili was just what one should expect from Classic New Mexican cooking. My husband said it was the best green chili that he has had and it had a lot of pork and went well with the blue corn enchiladas. I avoid the meat dishes but my vegetable quesadilla was excellent with homemade salsa on the side that was just the right amount of heat. We eat a lot of New Mexican food and love it! They also have burgers and other classic Amercian dishes for those that don't want the chili. the place to stop when you are in this area.

“Great Place to Eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2007

I just wanted to thank the waitresses for being so patient with all of us because we had such a large group of people after laying to rest our family member in the Fort Sumner Cemetery. They did their best to serve us even though we were split up in two different rooms. The restaurant itself is so unique with it's country style. Our group sat in the lounge area and it has a big beautiful antique bar in it. We were very impressed with the history of Fred's Restaurant & Lounge. The food was very good and everyone got exactly what they order. Thank you again for the great service and great food that we received. We will definitly eat there again.

“Excellent food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2005

New Mexican food is simply "THE BEST" and the hand breaded Chicken Fried Steak was "to die For" the hamburgers were DELICIOUS as was my personal favorite....Chicken Quesidillas. The beer and wine list was extensive and the Blue Margarita TOOK away my Blues.

“Freds....mmmm....greasy...!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2005

Ever stay up all night? well, try it...and then eat some good greasy food...mmm...will put your right out. The Boston Cream pie is usually bomb,...even when its Frozen. Margaritas could use more Taquila...but you just have to know the bartender....I reccomment moving to Fort Sumner. Living at the Billy Motel and eating at Fred's for lunch and dinner EVERY DAY! except sundays, when they are closed.
