Freds Franks in Wakefield

I know Freds Franks was taken over by a new guy. I work nearby and with the good weather on its way, was thinking of making a trek to the lake. Pulled up the website this am, and noted that it is "Closed until further notice". Am wondering what' up. I saw that they would be offering sausages, peppers and onions and was looking forward to a visit. Hope they do open again.

      Thannks- maybe he is taking an early vacation!

    2. We're on Carl, the new guy's email list, and got an email from him last week. He said he would be closed for a while, to take care of personal matters, and that he will send out an email when he's open again. I know Monday's lovely weather would have meant an over-the-top day for him. So, all I can say is - I hope he's all right. I'll post on CH when he sends out an email. I love me a monstah!

        Thanks- I guess I should get on the mailing list. Agree with you- hope he does open soon.

            Thanks for heads up! Will try to get there next week. Now the big question will be deciding if I NEED a hot dog or sausage sandwich!
