Fred’s Downtown Philly is truly a DFW original. Fred’s is a casual, family friendly one of a kind Philadelphia Cheesesteak shop founded by a real hands on owner, Fred Walker who started this dream in his home garage over 20 years ago. Yet, he still can be seen workin’ the grill everyday of the week – except Sunday. For many DFW area residents Fred’s has become a part of their family and we hope that continues! A big heartfelt THANK YOU to our guests still coming to our restaurants during this o continue that is mostly due to the fact that Fred is always present choppin’ and grillin’ those savory cheesesteaks, making hoagies, smashing burgers, taking phone orders, ringing up orders and taking a minute to shout out a hello to guests ensuring all have an experience to remember. Before opening his first Downtown Philly Cheesesteak shop Fred was a degreed electrical engineer and ITT Tech for IBM.
