  • Do it every time I am in the area. I just love this place, partly because it reminds me of life as it used to be, but the boiled and roasted peanuts are worth the stop!  more »
  • This is a roadside treasure. Nothing fancy. Just fresh peanuts, prepared anywhere from roasted to boiled.  more »

  • Fred's is a great roadside stand that is worth going out of the way for. The boiled peanuts are great, but I go for the amazing pork rinds. I bought 10 bags on my last visit and want more already.
  • Really enjoyed this little spot. Owners were very friendly with samples galore. Great little products and local appeal. Definitely try the peanuts!!
  • Ohh so much fun. Lovely little shop. Recommend the fried peanuts. Yumm
  • love boiled Peanuts anytime any-day they have three kinds ready for you to taste mmm felt like home in the Boro
  • Best peanuts around. You gotta stop by Fred's for some boiled peanuts to munch on during trip to Unicoi State Park. The staff is always friendly, the Peanuts are always phenomenal and you never know who you might bump into at Fred's. They also have a selection of other items to plunder through. I have seen hats for sale, ceramic wares, local honey, crafts, sodas and more.
