If you want the local flavor of good New Mexican Food, Fred's is the place. A place where locals go and the food was outstanding. A great place to eat.

Across the hwy from the Rv park so a great place to unwind after a long day on the road. The beer is real cold and the blue corn enchiladas were very good. Friendly wait staff and attentive bar tender.

What days and hours is Fred's open? We'll be driving through Ft. Sumner around lunchtime on a Saturday and dinnertime on a Wednesday. From the reviews, this looks like a must-stop pit stop.
