Great prices, quality and quantity. Open for breakfast and lunch - but honestly I can never get past the breakfast. Never had a bad meal at Fred's. Small place, but well worth it, if you can get a seat!

Good food, good service. Great little dinner, always packed. Never had a bad meal whether breakfast, lunch or dinner. They close early so get there early to eat. Portions are good size, always served at correct temp, staff friendlly, quality eats and good prices.

We were greeted as soon as we walked in the door. Had to wait about 10 minutes for a table but service was fast. We all enjoyed a great breakfast with reasonable prices. Will go back next time we're in Akron.

My husband and I found Fred's on Trip Advisor and had breakfast here on a Friday. What a great local gem! Would never have found it if not for Trip Advisor. It"s a very small, clean place that serves breakfast all day. There was great...More
