-- Tamales, Chili, Spaghetti, Chili-Mac, spaghetti red, soups etc.... Greasy Spoon

Some of the best greasy spoon, plated food I've had was this Fred and Red's spaghetti red.

I really enjoyed the raw nostalgia of this place. Who can top the plate of spaghetti red, WHOLE white onion slices, and standard no frills pickle pile?

Then these yellow, orange and white cheese powder toppings.

I remember the first time I went I could hardly wait to eat/try this stuff and It really delivered - I think in my life I only made it there 3 total times, but I'm pretty sure those three plates took about 11 days off of life span.

But yeah,

The plates were perfect for that colder weather in Joplin in Winter months.
I am pretty sure I never tried their tamales - did any of you all ever go w/ the tamale plate? If so how were they? Did Fred & Red's offer any desserts? Seems they had some cream pies and maybe ice-cream - though I can't say for sure.

How about other spots offering something similar - great Chili, spaghetti red, or the sort - even tamales?? Love to hear of other places.

I never tried Skyline Chili out in Ohio.

I'd be interested in any place that hit you in a nostalgic way and created a memory of delicious, greasy food? Especially interested in other places, I've never heard of.

I'm even okay with hearing of spots that offer Raviolis or Sloppy Joe's...

There are no real rules here, also, If you can provide links or pics of spots that are similar to F&R's that'd certainly be appreciated.

Thanks guys.

1) Find "We Love Fred and Reds" on Facebook. In their documents section there's a knock off recipe that people swear by. I've failed twice making it.

2) In Joplin, Stogey's has a spaghetti red plate that is close to F&Rs but not quite there taste wise. It's less spicy and almost a bit sweet but that can be overridden by some pepper or hot sauce.

3) Springfieldians love Casper's but their chili has beans by default. **** that shit.

4) Skyline / Cincinnati chili has chocolate and/or cinnamon in it. **** that noise.

Yep, F&R's has been toast going on two years now.

Never heard of either of those two places.

Loved me some Chili-Mac when I was in the army. It was one of the few things that was consistently palatable.

I would never actually buy it in a restaurant, though.

I was all pumped up for Fred & Red's when I was in Carthage last fall and was disappointed to learn they were closed. However, the drive-in theater is apparently still open.

Skyline is truly disgusting.

Memphis has a local favorite: BBQ spaghetti. It's surprisingly tasty, as well as BBQ bologna sandwich (tastes nothing like bologna and is now one of my regional favorites).

Nice Jeep, I've got one just like it, but it's blue. Fred & Red (it's in Joplin, not Carthage) escaped the tornado by about three or four blocks, but the owners wanted to retire and wanted a SHIT TON of money for the chili recipe. Nobody was willing to pay it, so they just closed up. Shame, it was one of America's classic greasy spoons.

Here in KC, I'd recommend Town Topic, Dixon's Chili, Dagwoods, Cascone Grill.

This is what I was looking for - I remember Dixon's slightly. Yes - Ty for that link - looks good. How long have they been there?
