Fast. Fresh. Very tasty. The salsa bar is great. The cashier overcharged me and when I pointed it out, he acted a little surprised? They serve Pepsi (yuk). Today's younger generation seems oblivious to muzak, but it was so bad, I went back in and asked them to make my order carry-out.

If your looking for a fast food places that serves very good Mexican burritos and tacos, this is the place. The food is freshly made, delicious, and authentic. While you wait for your food you can select a variety of salsas at the salad bar. And it's free! The only draw back is that the place is always crowded and... More

I ordered the charbroiled chicken burrito. My bean choice was pinto. Black beans is also an option. I paid an extra 99 cents and got the "enchilada" sauce. I recommend this burrito and recommend that you spring for the extra charge for this sauce. The burrito was most tasty. Ambiance was lacking. Not much to see inside, although I did... More

I have been to Zona Fresca, Ft. Lauderdale several times and its always good. Its more of a fast food Mexican restaurant where you order at the counter then sit down. The food has always been delicious and they have a fresh salsa bar that is outstanding. Always fresh. A great selection and plenty of it. I personally like the... More

Awesome tasting food. Next step for this growing franchise is to communicate better. Showed up today after checking twice when they close. Got there and they were closed. Tried Lime Mexican grill a few doors down and was good.

I typically enjoying Zona Fresca when I am out by myself...it's always a treat to stop by, get a chicken quesadilla and/or other delights...and sit quietly on the patio savoring the good. If you have not tried it, you should. Great pricing, great food. And a sweet patio.

Zona Fresca has now opened in Downtown Miami, it is the freshest and tasiest fast food I have ever eaten, everything is made to order and seriously tastes amazing, I have been 3 times in the past 10 days. Such a pleasant change from the usual burger fast food. Well done to all A++++

Once again, we trusted Trip Advisor reviews, and once again we were very happy with our decision. We wanted cheap, good Mexican food. We got exactly that. Back home, we have a chain called Baja Fresh that we love, and the reviews led us to believe this would be similar. It was actually even better. This is not a sit... More

We love this place. Have been there every time we are in Fort Lauderdale. I think we are addicted to the quality fresh simple food. This is guilt free fast food eating at its best. We love the fish(ask for them grilled) tacos and the vegetable burrito. The staff are great and the fresh salsa bar is perfect. Cannot fault... More
