Don't bother - there are other Mexican Restaurants nearby that are good. I threw most of my taco plate away - I was afraid top keep eating as I thought I;d get sick

Excellent meal. Very reasonably-priced. Loved the carnitas. Extra sauces on the side were great. Close to Ayres Hotel.

It's anecdotal, but I was the only anglo in the place everyone else was hispanic, so where better to go for Mexican food? It lived up to my expectations too. I had a carnitas burrito and it was excellent and they have a salsa bar to top it off with along with fresh fried peppers. Perfect. They also make all... More

This place is an awesome, quick Mexican place. I always get my meal to go and stock up on salsas and pico. The Killer B is my favorite!

Good and fresh, I like the salsa bar and the tacos. Salad are good as well, fast service and pretty good for lunch. I also like the wet and wild burrito with the red sauce, it is very large so you may choose to split this item.

Fresca's is great Mexican take out. Multible locations through the O.C. Been consistently good for years, I love the chicken tamales, hold the sauce and just use their amazing array of salsa.....yummy!

Seemed to be a family-run restaurant with high quality and health-conscious: Whole black beans are used and only canola oil. I ate there three nights. Generous portions, a sweet outdoor courtyard, inexpensive prices and quick service. Couldn't ask for more.
