This is a hidden, independently owned shop with awesome food. I particularly love the bacon cheeseburger sub with grilled onions. Awesome! Get away from the chain stores and eat at a real family owned restaurant. If you eat subs try this place, you will like it a lot.

We've never been to this chain before - a tad confusing and the staff weren't interested in being helpful (nor loud enough to hear). Couldn't get what I wanted, ended up with something ok. It filled the void in my stomach, but it wasn't "good".

Fat Freddy's is yet another place that is almost unfair to review I have been going there for years and it is consistently good. My GF and I headed there for a late lunch on Saturday. You must be careful to always call first - once they run out of bread they are pretty much done for the day. When... More

The place is really tiny and ran by a young couple. They work limited hours during the day, and they're closed on the weekend I think. When you see and taste the food you'll be hooked. I love the steak bomb. It reminds me of philly cheesesteak sandwich from the fair.

the steak is completely void of flavor, stay away. If you've had a Roast Pork sandwich from Philadelphia or an Italian Beef sandwich from Chicago, you know what flavor can be. The steak at Fat Freddie's is just not good, despite being doctored up with peppers, onions, cheese. The other subs like the Italian Cold Cut is very tasty &... More

We used to have a winter home on NW 46 th st. and as a teenager would go get an all American with hot sauce all the time. When we now visit my parents in Delray Beach with my wife and kids, I drive down to still get my all American with hot sauce. We have even taken them home... More

We have been eating Fat Freddy's subs for many years. They have the absolute best subs around. Their hot sauce is awesome and the bread is the best. They know what it takes to be successful in this business. You won't go just once...I guarantee it! Don

I absolutely love this sandwich shop. Great steak sandwiches at an average price. Their only down fall are their hours. Monday - Friday 11 - 3, closed Sat & Sun. Cash only, they don't accept credit cards!
