Just finished eating my loaded potato and side of brisket with all the trimmings and MAN best 12 bucks I've spent this year, Leon is hilarious and the staff is extremely down to earth. No doubt in my mind will I not go there again. Ps. The banana pudding is delicious if you haven't tried it then unbuckle your belt and get ready for some extremely tasty flavors. I love freds BBQ
Freds Barbecue Restaurant (((= My name is Elisa and my family and i have been going to Fred's since i was a lil girl. Im now 29 and currently live in New Mexico. No other BBQ restaurant compares to Fred's. The loaded baked potato is so amazing words cant do it justice. Brisket, sausage, cheese, grilled onions, jalapenos, sour cream, baked beans, and Fred's signature BBQ sauce. All optional of course. If you are ever in Irving, TX I highly recommend Fred's Barbecue Restaurant!!!
I can certainly testify to all the great reviews. I have known the owners for over 16 years. They are outstanding church and community leaders and the most honest, caring, spirit filled couple you will ever meet.You will not find a better place to dine. If you are looking for a warm and friendly atmosphere, outstanding food, superior prices and great service, you will find all that and more at Freds barbecue. Prepare for a soulful experience.
I agree with this review, It's a great place to eat. It's amazing! I never thought I liked brisket or baked potatoes, but this place made me love both.
The owners are right there when you walk in, and it's immediately clear that this is going to be a very personable experience. They'll talk to you while preparing your order and you get to see your meal put together right there. Both times I got the stuffed baked potato and it blew me away. I have never tasted anything quite like this. The brisket had and depth and richness to the flavor I'd never experienced before in brisket. Same for the ribs which my friend ordered.
Sides are decent. The coleslaw was my favorite. If you can score some of the pies made by the owner's 96yr old friend, do it! They are great. The owner freely admits that she doesn't do desserts all that well, and the cobbler which she made was good but not as great as the pies.
Overall, a great place with just the right atmosphere. I love it!!
I went to Fred's for the first time yesterday and to say the least, it was GREAT!!! I have been all over TX and OK eating where I went, and I ate BBQ all the time. Fred's is on my top 5 list, we had the BBQ Patato that was just out of this world! I also had a pound of baby back ribs that were so good, the meat came off the bone and it is a dry rub not bbq sauce so its not all messy. I recomend this place to anyone that wants some real BBQ! Thank you Fred!!!!
Used to be the best but, now, you take your chances! Last time in, the beans were 'sour'.Not only have the portions of meat gone down and the price went up, but the manager, Leon Brown was extremely rude and made hateful and prejudicial remarks about anyone who rode a motorcycle or wore a dewrag. It never occured to him(or he just didn't care)that the person he was talking to was a cancer patient who had lost their hair and was self-concience about it. I will not only never return, but urge all others to BOYCOTT this establishment. There is enough hatred in the world. We dont need to have to encounter it just to get some average bbq.
this is place was ok, but not as good as otherreviewer has stated. I droeve from Dallas just to be disappointed. the restauratnt is very clean but he food in not worth the drive. I was looking for good barbecue like Tony Roma, or Corkey's in TN. The beef was tender but need more barbecue favor it was more of a boild meat. I do not have a reason to return
Wow..........I can't wait to try that potato. I'm going to Irving this weekend for the first time to see the Cowboys play the 49ers. So............since I am a Fred, too, I'm going to try it Saturday for lunch.
Hope this Fred's makes this Fred happy!
Yea man Freds BBQ...How can i put it...to me down wright good. I been goin to Freds for about 10 years I live in Oak Cliff, but sometimes me and my husband make a special trip to Irving just yo eat dinner. I love the people there, they are very nice and down to earth. I recommend it to any one that wants good BBQ.
