Our Story

The story of a family meat business that began in the rural Karoo in 1905 and continues in the form of a gourmet burger restaurant located in an historic neighbourhood of a South African city.

What’s with the 1905?

Okay, so we haven’t been selling burgers since 1905, it’s a reference to legacy.  The handing down from one generation to the next.  In our case it has been the commitment to good quality meat.  We are meat snobs and we have been since 1905.

An adventure

Behind the concept of a burger restaurant with a mission to provide real burgers for real people, are Anna and Freddy Heydenrych.  The couple decided to open a restaurant because they dreamed of adventure.  They have been building this dream since 2016 when they first opened the doors to their Baakens Valley burger bar.  Fred left the corporate world to follow a passion and build on the legacy of his family’s meat history.  Freddy and Anna also passionate about creating sustainable employment and development opportunities for their staff within their company.  You can find out more about working fore Frederick & Son here.

There’s more

The story is unfolding as more and more hungry burger lovers discover the value of a Frederick & Son burger.  Nobody should have to eat bad quality burgers made from inferior ingredients, and we love that our customers appreciate our commitment to this cause and keep coming back for more.

So my fiancé and I finally went there today!!! I have not tasted such brilliant restaurant food in a long time!!!

you know when every bite makes you make an involuntary sound of enjoyment, this was it, my fiancé is a chef too and we absolutely loved it, the service was great, the atmosphere is easy. The owner, his beautiful wife and their staff are approachable.

We had their 2 classic burgers, the smokehouse and I had the jalapeno burger OMW 
My fiancé Ismail Begg was so impressed by the ACTUAL chips, not frozen, CUT POTATOES!😂 EVERYTHING IS OWN MADE. 
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE.

THEIR BELGIUM WAFFLES!!!!!!! 
I said enough, just go eat their food please

A Gem of a place, had the Wednesday burger special there last night with the family and it was the best burgers I have eaten in Port Elizabeth. 
The chilli poppers is really a must try. 
You will see us more often. 
Thank you

We visited after SAA’s inflight magazine said it was where to find the best burgers in PE

Dylan and Gracious giggled on hearing it and got down to showing us it was justified

… my hubby had his Well Done and chef Gracious still got it juicy and delicious
… and the crispy onion rings are abundant

Well worth the SAA accolade
