I loved this different kind of Mexican Restaurant. I went the other night and found that it was permanently closed. I'll miss it.

I've ben here a few times for appitizers and found that the food was exceptional! Very tasty and well presented...however the bar area I found to be dirty. The blinds on the windows were nasty as well as the tops of the hot sauce that they put out on the bar, and also the table was quite sticky. One particular... More

Found this restaurant on Groupon and went with a friend. We were pleasantly surprised. The nachos were outstanding and we also had their single tacos which were very tasty. We ate in the bar and the service was good.

First visit to Fresco. Ate at the bar. Ordered a Margarita (not their normal drink), drink was just ok. My dinner (Carne Assado flank steak) was also so so. Great soup of the day though. i do not recall what soup I had. Service was ok. Parking was difficult to find a spot.

Based on other reviews, I can only conclude that the other reviews were written by family of the owners or we hit a bad night. Service was ok, but all four of us was disappointed in our meals. Someone had enchiladas which were made lasagna style, not the usual rolled up. The texture was more like thick, soft flavorless corn... More

The house margarita was a decent value. The grilled corn and Yucatan coconut chicken were the best offerings. We did not like the crab cakes or the street tacos. The service was adequate. Could have used a refill on our beverages sooner as we were parched for a few minutes. The salsa was good but I've had better tortilla chips.... More

I was in the mood for Mexican food last night so I looked to Trip Advisor for some advice. I was pleased to learn that a restaurant in my city had received such good reviews with the typical few nay-sayers so I checked it out. My friend and I went around 8:30 PM on Fathers Day and were told we... More

Good food. Average drinks. Had to get upper management approval for using groupon on Cinco Demayo.... Didn't think that was a nationally recognized holiday... Hmmm.

I was pleasantly surprised. The food was a more upscale Mexican. The sauce on the chicken al coco was to die for, I do wish the chicken was pounded out more though - and that the coconut was deshelled, as it just left a hairy mess and I had to take it home to eat it. The fajitas my husband... More

Delicious food, excellent price, best Molè sauce in America. You have to give it a try. We have been there four times and had different dishes every time and every meal was excellent.
