Fred's Franks in the Boston Globe today

Woo hoo! Fred is out again for the warm weather. Aaaaah, the joys of spring.

Fred's Franks in Wakefield is covered in today's Boston Globe:

This year he's decided to open Tuesday-Saturday so those of us that can't get to him during the week can see him during the weekend.

  1. I saw this guy on that "other" food tv show ... and the big green egg looks enticing. I love the crazy ordering system and that they typically char them. I've never been up to try myself though ... any first-hand reports?

      I tried Fred's Franks in Wakefield last week. I got 2 regular hot dogs cooked crispy with mustard. The hot dogs were very good. A regular hot dog is $2.50 and a jumbo hot dog is $4.50. He also has linquica, kielbasa and chorico. The hot dogs cook pretty fast on his grill.

        I can't compare him to Speeds, since I've never had a Speed's hot dog, but I love Fred's. He will cook them to the doneness you desire, but I like his default dog with a bit of snap to them. When the weather is nice, it's nice to grab a dog then just sit on the edge of the lake and just relax.
