Freshly prepared and fresh tasting Mexican food

Fresh food prepared fast but not fast food. I love shrimp and their tacos are the best. Can't say the shrimp burrito was one of my favorites. Good variety of house-made salsas.

This review is for the Zona Fresca located at the Hamilton Mall in Mays Landing, New Jersey. What can I say! The food, the service, the quality - all excellent. For a casual, order at the counter restaurant, this one is superior. I've tried a few different items from the menu: burritos, nachos, and a platter called The Zone with... More

I love this place for a quick lunch, either eat in or take out. I can't resist their crispy chips and guacamole but the salsa is great too. I usually get a chicken burrito with black beans, very tasty with big chunks of chicken. It's big enough that I often take half of it home for later. All their food... More

I LOVE ZONA FRESCA! This is always the place I will go first if I want something really delicious, quick and for a good price in Ft Lauderdale. The restaurant is always clean, the staff are friendly and it's just great fresh food. I think the fish tacos are amazing!

It's kind of like a Moes, Chipotle or Qdoba. It wasn't bad, but with all the other great stuff to eat around here, I wouldn't recommend waisting your money here. The rice was bland, the steak was flavorless and stuffed peppers are so so. The shredded beef was good, but I wouldn't recommend getting it enchilada style. It would have... More
