Eat Fred’s or Be Dead!
Review and Overview: This is a Cool Spot
Cuisine: Diner (Hip)
Fred 62 has been a hip late night eating spot for years. The place never closes, which make sense because it always appears to be packed! The restaurant seamlessly blends hip trendy décor with your classic diner. The food here is fantastic to say the least and the crowd is always a hodge podge of people. Expect to see clubbers, college kids, rockers, couples, and all other assortment of patrons here.
The food here is excellent. Expect to see your favorite diner menu options, just a lot more of them. The menu does a great job of providing an assortment of choices. For example the breakfast options (like any diner worth its weight in gold) are fantastic. In fact the breakfast alone is divided into SEVEN overarching menu categories. Practically half of the menu is just Fred’s breakfast items! Also like any good diner, it’s always worth saving room for dessert. There are several categories of food to choose from, each with even MORE food options. I really can’t stress how large the menu is here. Check it out for yourself!
- Price ($$)
Though they used to be much cheaper before, the prices at Fred’s aren’t terrible. Expect a bill of $20 easy. Regardless of how much you pay, there is a 99.9% chance you will be full when you leave the table. The rule of thumb here is to go in a group. There will usually be people who can’t finish their entire meals anyway.
There is a parking lot across the street behind the restaurant. Otherwise you’ll need to find parking on the street, which is common in the Los Feliz area.
All of the staff here are friendly, funky, spunky characters. I don’t think I have ever had an issue with any of them.

Simply put, a bunch of us used to come here a lot back in our college days. The night typically consisted of a late night event in Hollywood followed by hitting Fred 62 before heading back to campus. Fred’s of course was always a good decision. We’ve been back periodically and the place still has the crazy funky feel we have enjoyed for years.
Why It’s Cool:
It’s trendy done right. This place definitely gives you a unique vibe that you will be hard pressed to find anywhere else.
