It is hard to find good southern food in Florida, but this place is delicious. The food is fresh and taste like a home cooked meal. Delicious!!!! The employees are nice, as well. I would highly recommend.

We love Fred's Restaurant's Southern home cooking and buffet. From BBQ to fried chicken with all the trimmings, soup, salad, fresh biscuits and rolls and yummy desserts, we can choose a little or a lot of food. All homemade and wonderful!!

Was in Tampa decided to make the drive to Freds as was craving some of their cooking as the Winter Haven and Bartow locations are closed. It did not disappoint. Great Southern Cooking and friendly staff.

My family had the pleasure of eating several times at Fred's on our recent trip to Florida. Amazing breakfast buffet. The fried chicken was some of the best I have ever had. Service top notch and down home friendly atmosphere a welcomed change. Price very reasonable and actually cheaper than eating at Cracker Barrel......

I recently went to Fred's for breakfast with an out of town family member. We were seated within 10 minutes on a Saturday morning.
