A Fort Worth staple, Fred’s Texas Cafe, is expanding into Crowley.

The restaurant announced Monday it signed a lease on a 4,800-square-foot space in downtown Crowley at Texas and Main streets, with an opening scheduled for late spring 2025. Fred’s will also celebrate its 46th birthday in July.

“We are excited to announce the newest addition to Main Street in Crowley — Fred’s Texas Cafe,” Billy Davis, the Crowley mayor, said in a release. “Known for its award-winning cuisine and ice-cold drinks, Fred’s is set to become a beloved spot for families and visitors alike. We look forward to forging a strong and lasting relationship with Fred’s as they become integral to the new Crowley Main Street.”

Fred’s had not ventured beyond the Fort Worth city limits until now. The restaurant’s signature Cowboy cuisine, wide array of burgers, bold Texas flavors and ice-cold, on-tap beer will remain at the heart of Fred’s offerings.

“We’re not just opening a new location; we’re becoming a part of a new community,”  Quincy Wallace, Fred’s Texas co-owner and operating partner, said in the release. “As we sign this new lease, we’re grateful to be working alongside the great folks leading the city of Crowley to bring this plan to life. Crowley’s rich community and rapid growth make it the perfect fit for our first location outside of Fort Worth. It’s a city that truly embodies the essence of Texas hospitality and community spirit that Fred’s is all about. We look forward to becoming an integral part of the local community, making new friends, and helping the city prosper.”

Fred’s asked customers to share where they would like to see the next Fred’s Texas Cafe. The restaurant wants to preserve the Texan charm and hospitality in every community it serves, it said.

The restaurant plans a couple of July specials and perhaps a new menu item or two as part of the 46th birthday celebration. 

“It has always been in the cards to take the Fred’s Texas Cafe to other Texas neighborhoods and expand beyond the place we love and currently call home,” Wallace said. “It’s an exciting time, and we’re really looking forward to growing the Fred’s brand in the next few years and sharing the Fred’s style with new diners and friends. I always tell our patrons, tell me where you want us or where we need to be, and we’ll find our way there.”
