Service was good.. there was 5 different entrees to choose from plus lots of vegetables like collard greens, black eye peas, corn casserole, Ect.Ect... plus a salad bar.

Food was good, and fresh, really enjoyed it. Lunch was under $13 for unlimited returns to the buffet or you can order just 1 visit to the buffet line at a lesser price, if you don't want to pig out

Worth a try, I enjoyed it

Late lunch decided on Fred's. Chose the unlimited which was approximately 12 bucks.
Fried chicken, meatloaf and mashed potatoes were very good. The rest was nothing special and I tried a little bit of everything.
Can't comment on the salad bar as I didn't try it.
Dessert was bread pudding, didn't care for, and strawberry shortcake which was excellent.
Worth a stop and I would visit again.

We came in after a funeral with about 50 people. Great place. Fried chicken was delicious . Beef tips over the mashed potatoes was awesome! I had 2 plates of each and didn't get a chance to sample anything else because it was so good!

Put the phones forward, closed the office, whole group took off for Fred's for lunch. Great ambiance, service, and the food was the star. Enjoyed fried chicken, my favorite rutabagas and other country style veggies. One plate and visit to the market table was enough for me, this big guy was very satisfied and smiling.
