|“||Big Fred's BBQ Shack was quite the misnomer. Despite the prefix, Big Fred wasn't that big. As I remember, the man stood 5 foot 10 inches and looked to weigh 180 pounds; lovely gentleman. And contrary to the humble images the word 'shack' brings forth, Big Fred's made the best rack of ribs I've ever tasted. In these dark days, creative culinaries are exploring new methods with a meat source that's... readily available. I must say, their rendition of ribs is quite good, but it doesn't compare to Big Fred's. Five stars.||”|

Once a must-stop along SR 105, the shack is now little more than a shooting range with animals and, if pursuing Key to the Past, Scorched led by David Thorpe. The barbecue shack itself contains a cooking station and a large number of kitchen-related junk and loot. The houses are both sealed and inaccessible.
Big Fred's BBQ Shack is a restaurant based out of a wooden shack near two boarded-up townhomes. A pack of foxes roam around the area, and an off-road vehicle can be found in the car park. Inside the shack is a cooking stove, along with various kitchen-related junk. To the left of the shack is the outdoor dining area. A clown hat can be found sitting on one of the tables.
Big Fred's BBQ Shack appears only in Fallout 76.
