Wakefield BBQ Truck

We were driving through Wakefield the other day and saw a BBQ truck parked at the north end of the lake there. The guy had a "big green egg" BBQ and there was a line of people. Anybody been there? We would have checked it out but we were already late for another appointment.

  1. That is Fred's Franks, often mentioned on CH and Phantom Gourmet.

    1. We were back in the neighborhood today and went. We had the chorico which was quite tasty. The recomendation was to just have it plain to enjoy they meat, and thats what we had. I would like to try a regular hot dog. The staff was very friendly and it was quite busy.

      1. Yup, and as greygarious pointed out, Fred's Franks are well known on this board and rightfully so. If you can't make it to Speed's and your on the north side of Boston, Fred's is a more than worthy alternative option. He does a great job with them beautiful Pearl dogs.
