Three Epic Culinary Options Rise to the Top As Renegades Across the City Made their Voices Heard

Fort Worth, TX (February 3, 2022) — Fred’s Texas Cafe announced today the top three contenders in their Renegade Food Challenge coming to BOTH restaurant locations this spring. The wild contest concept, from Fred’s CEO and Co-Owner Quincy Wallace and the restaurant’s newly appointed Head Chef Fabian Alvarado, launched in December and put the power in the hands of eaters and Fred’s supporters across Funky Town.

Renegades were tasked with choosing a new challenge that only the toughest foodies could complete. From hotter than hell and bigger than Texas, hundreds of brave foodies seeking the next gourmet gauntlet cast their vote and three submissions rose to the top for a final round of voting beginning today at

When asked about what he hopes the Renegade Food Challenge will bring to DFW eaters and out-of-town visitors, CEO and Co-Owner Quincy Wallace said, “We have wanted to create a Fred’s food challenge for a long-time! We know Fred’s customers and family are just crazy enough to do it too. When we launched the contest, we weren’t sure what we’d get back, but I have to say people DID NOT DISAPPOINT. The top three take some of our favorite classics and push them to the next level. I can’t wait to see which one takes the title.”
