We moved to Plano in 1996 and have driven by Fred's Downtown Philly, sometimes once a day and for over 15 years, we have never stopped in for a sandwich. We gave Fred's a try last week and I am very impressed.
Having been to both Geno's and Pat's in Philadelphia (all in one visit), I would rank Fred's cheesesteak sandwich as among one of the best I have ever had. The meat was top quality and very lean. The onions were grilled and the cheese was melted perfectly. The roll that it came on was great. My wife and I both agreed to go back more often. We are looking forward to trying the rest of the menu; which is a lot more than just cheesesteaks. I'm a chicken wing junky and he has those as well.
Although I am not very comfortable with all of the Philadelphia Eagle's junk on the walls (go Cowboys!), I would still highly recommend Fred's whenever a sandwich is in order.
