Dear Fred’s family,
Fred’s Texas Cafe eased open the doors at our Currie St. location on Wednesday, June 24, with much anticipation and excitement. Unfortunately, the morning of June 25, we had to reclose those doors after learning one of our team members tested positive for Covid-19.
We owe our guests transparency and loyalty. We immediately closed the restaurant and hired a professional sanitation crew recommended by the Texas Restaurant Association (TRA) to perform strong disinfecting and decontamination of our building. Out of an abundance of caution, we also had a professional sanitation crew perform the same deep clean at Fred’s North (@ I-35 and Western Center).
Fred’s North remains open for business at 50% occupancy (in compliance with Governor Abbott’s most recent executive order on June 26, 2020) for dine-in, patio seating, and curbside pickup — which is encouraged.
Following the guidance of our local Health Department and the TRA and pending further developments, we hope to re-open our Currie St. location mid-July, continuing with our diligent sanitation processes, mandatory masks and single-use menus in accordance with recently announced guidelines from Tarrant County officials. Since reopening, we have been checking temperatures and screening employees prior to each shift, and as of this moment, no other team members are exhibiting any symptoms.
This is obviously not a great situation and we hope that our affected team member, all other team members, and our guests, get through this pandemic safely. We will remain transparent throughout this process and cannot thank you enough for your loyalty at this time. Please continue reading our FAQ’s below for more information.

With much love and gratitude,
Quincy Wallace & Terry Chandler
