After more than four decades of serving wonderfully messy burgers in Fort Worth’s West 7th neighborhood, Fred’s Texas Cafe has found a new home just miles from the original. The new spot at 7101 Camp Bowie West officially opened last weekend.
After the first Fred’s opened in 1978, they saw the neighborhood flourish around them. Last year they sold the building and moved west into a bigger space. The new location features a large indoor dining room, a stage for live music, and an extended patio with glass garage doors that can be opened on sunny days.
Also, there is a lot more parking space (something that was slim in the original location).
Co-owners Terry Chandler and Quincy Wallace made sure to bring some of the old space into the new; they trucked the set from the original location to the new space, including the branded truck in front.
The menu will remain the same, but they are also bringing back seasonal and specialty menu items. We’ve got some footage of the new space and food, in case you need some inspiration to head west soon.
Fred’s still has a second location at 2730 Western Center in Fort Worth.
