Famous he is, that’s legendary Chef Freddy J who is more famous nowadays for his Jerk chicken, fried haddock, BBQ wings, and the boneless chicken sandwich all at his 195 Grant street location Monday thru Sunday. Famous Fred gives each one his customers that personal touch at his 12 seat restaurant that has mood lighting and lit candles.
Fred has been around for a while dating back to his days at Charley the Butcher. Fred provides great conversation while preparing your meal right in front of you, and the Sunday brunch special featuring a spring mix salad with scrambled eggs, Crab cakes and cornbread, and fish-grits with bacon is a special treat.
Famous Fred says the key to success is having great business partners, family support and a great location! And because of my Two good friends Mykiel, and Nard’s support, and help with marketing we are successful today. That great location is on the reemerging Grant Street on the west side where Fred has lived most of his life. The location is in the center of the commercial district that has new businesses opening everyday with tons of pedestrian traffic, and like the city of Buffalo, Grant Street is turning around a beautiful multicultural community.
If you’re looking for something different to eat with an intimate mood to go with it than try Freddie J’s BBQ, he will make you famous too.
