An excellent "fresh" Mexican restaurant, a great value, and fast. I'm in heaven. The 2 charbroiled poblano peppers are STUFFED with melted jack and cheddar cheese. The broiling brings out the yummy flavor of the pepper. The salsa bar is excellent--the pico de gallo and mild salsa both have a wonderful fresh tomato flavor. I mixed in some habanero salsa...

This is a Mexican themed chain restaurant that we were not familiar with prior to this first visit. We were really impressed by the food. It was very fresh, plentiful and delicious. You can see into the kitchen and it was spotless. I had the Cali chicken burrito (7.95$) and my husband had the siesta steak burrito (9.50$) because he... More

The peppers stuffed with cheese are my favorite. They are charred on the outside and served with rice, beans, and tortilla chips. The iced tea has a good flavor and they also have beer. A few tables outside and more inside. A great choice for a quick meal!

if you are looking for Mexican this is it, if you are looking for fresh this is it, if you are looking healthy and good price you must go to this place. Also the people are so friendly is clean and the music is also very nice. Coming back for sure when in the area.

I've been here on several occasions and always order the fish tacos platter. They are served with sides of rice and black beans. Nothing extraordinary but they do work for me as long as I cover them in lime and the hot salsa. The restaurant is always very clean and seems well organized. I wouldn't go out of my way... More

Visited Zona Fresca after reading many positive reviews and was very disappointed. Although the location had many customers and the service was friendly and quick, the food was less than spectacular. I had the chicken quesidilla and the chicken was rubbery. The guacamole was somewhat watery and very bland. The mango/pineapple drink was just ok. Won't be going again.

Mexican restuarant with good food and a salsa bar! Prices were reasonable, you can get a cold beer, and the atmosphere was nice. It's a big step above fast food but more convenient than a full service restaurant. We'd go back!

Great lunch spot to either go alone or with others. I eat here probably 3x a month. Fish tacos and salads are my go-to. Their salad dressing is delicious and light.
