Everything we tried tasted like it was homemade. The corned beef hash and chorizo were particularly good. While, I don’t normally have fried chicken for breakfast - it was delicious. The staff was attentive. This is a perfect Sunday family breakfast destination. We will return...More

We went to Fred's for the first time today. I can't believe I've never been here before. I've known that it's a Plant City fixture, and heard great things about it over the years. Just never really got around to trying it. I'm so glad...More

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).
