All you can eat family style cooking. Top quality vegetables and choice of meats. The Fried Chicken is to die for...If you go on Sunday or at dinner they have really good ribs, must come from their sister BBQ restaurant.

Fred’s is a southern style restaurant with lots of choices. They have a buffet, but also menu items from which to choose. Warning! Sunday lunchtime is very crowded- if you get they after church you will likely have to wait. You will love it!

The breakfast buffet is 7 days a week and is $5.99 for 55+. The hours for the restaurant is 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. I'm not sure what time breakfast ends and lunch begins (call them at 813-752-7763).
