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!!
