All homemade cooking, family owned for generations. They have chicken, fish, ribs, real mashed potatoes, plenty of veggies to choice from, large salad bar, warm corn bread and more, plus lots of deserts all homemade. A must try. They did not take reservations.

If you go here your best bet is the buffet. They have a breakfast, lunch and dinner, but my favorite is lunch. Fresh vegetables from the local farmer's market. My favorites are the fried chicken and fried catfish. Also the fried green tomatoes. Did I say fried? Also love the corn casserole, and the okra, and stewed tomatoes. Cabbage and... More

Wonderful buffet place to eat. Big selection of southern food. I highly recommend this place if you're in the plant city area. They have a wonderful breakfast too.

They have a home style buffet the food is good but the pricing sucks. One price if you make one trip another price if you make more trips. No senior discounts you can't even go up for dessert unless you pay the second price.

If you are looking for a salad buffet restaurant, this isn't it. If you want AMAZING home cooked food without cooking it, here's the place! Great service and food! We drove approximately 30 minutes and was very full and satisfied!!

8 of us went in - no problem getting table after short wait. Server was very frindly. Food is good old country cooking. Had plenty to choose from and every one left full. Would highly recommend.

Our kids LOVE Fred's fried chicken. Our little one is a picky eater and we don't have to tell him twice to eat it. Every time we go, we eat the buffet and finish full and pleased. They have a fair share of vegetables and salads to balance their vast offer of proteins (chicken, fish, pork...) and carbs. We love... More

My husband and I went to Fred's Southern Kitchen for breakfast and it was an excellent choice. Although we were told the would be a 30 min wait, we only waited about 15 mins. Once seated, the waitress took our drink order very quickly. Food is served in an all you can eat buffet style, however they do offer the... More
