Fred's Southern Kitchen Winter Haven closed several months ago. Sad to see them go they had a really good breakfast and lunch at a reasonable price, dinner was a little over priced.

This restaurant closed several months ago and became Johnson's Barbeque. This has also closed recently. I answered questions only because I could not post this closing with out doing so.

This restaurant is no longer open in Winter Haven. There are restaurants from this family run chain in Lakeland and other locations.

Fred's was just so-so. Maybe it was me, not fond buffet type restaurants. Now a Bar-B-Que place - haven't tried new place yet.
