- After losing the family
farm, Fred & his brother Red started their
restaurant at the height of the depression in 1933 along Route 66 in
the desert. Serving "famous" ham burgers, chill and other
short order items the brothers prospered. The brothers sold the restaurant
in the 1960's and retired to Palm Springs. The couple that bought the restaurant
retained the name and the menu and prospered too, that is until the old highway
was bypassed by the new Interstate. Fred and Red's is still open on the lonely
desert highway, but business is slow and the structure is showing its age.
- The previous history
is a purely fictional account. But hamburger and short order res taurants like this were, and still are, located all over the
United States, Fred & Red's depicts a restaurant that has seen better
days and would be at home in any business district, industrial are a or as
a roadside stop.
