Remember Freda’s Fish Fry, which had the colorful, if eventually illegal trailer on West Superior used as an advertising sign?
Freda’s is back in business now in the Gun Lake area, just across the street from the Gun Lake Motel on Patterson Avenue south of M-179. Owner Alicia Thorpe is promising to offer many of the same culinary items, including fish and Mexican entrees.
Freda’s had a few battles with city officials over sign ordinance issues. She finally removed the colorful trailer in front of her old business site at the mini-strip mall next to Bentley’s Party Store and then moved her establishment to the west side of North Main Street before shutting down operations three years ago.
