Reviews for Fred & Red's

This is our first time here and I'm sorry to say our last. They might be famous for their chili but it wasn't famous with us. It was very oily and the oil dominated the chili. Maybe its because I'm from the east coast but there was no heat that I could taste. That being said I loved the fries and when I got to my burger under the chili it too was good but nothing to write home about. But no lettuce or tomatoes at all!!! The staff was EXCELLENT!!! it's definitely a team full review
Why is this place not ranking on Google as one of those places you must try before you die?? I travel all over the country and am always looking for those unique places that just crank out mounds of good food that is to die for! (I am an avid foodie/ traveler. I always ask and search online for these special places that are often the Mom & Pop / family owned type joints.)Today I found one of those places... Fred & Reds! Nothing fancy, but full of good, salt of the earth full review
I asked around as to what places I should check out as I was traveling past Joplin and Fred & Red’s made the list of about must stop and try place’s. I wasn’t disappointed at all. The food was excellent. There is something about simple dishes that add to the wow factor. This should be on everyone’s list of places to check out before they die. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw strawberry rhubarb pie. It’s been about 20+ years since I have had what I would call full review
