Fred and Red’s is a Joplin Staple – being the original purveyor of the often imitated, never duplicated Spaghetti Red. The shop has been a fixture on Main Street since 1923, moving south from it’s original location onto property reportedly won by the owner in a poker game! If you find yourself on Route 66, a stop at Fred and red’s for an authentic plate of Spaghetti Red will be in order.
The original look of the building on South Main Street.
Still bustling, headed to the celebration of 100 years of Spaghetti Red! Note the pie case! “Ya’ll having any pie?”
