Enjoy the fresh flavors of authentic contemporary Mexican cuisine, the way it is enjoyed across Mexico. Choose from numerous special dishes such as Pescado al Cilantro, Pollo en Hoja Santa, Camarones Tulum, Tacos de Cochinita or Arracherea a la Mexicana. Frida’s is open seven days a week for both lunch and dinner and features the best margaritas in town. Don’t forget to ask about the story behind our signature dessert – Especiales de Atole.

very good food and at lunch, prices not bad at all; alcohol available and reasonable

This is an upscale yet still casual place located close to the intersection of 119th and Metcalf. The chicken enchiladas and the yucatan chicken were both quite tasty. With 2 beers, tax and tip, lunch for 2 came to $30. If we hadn't moved to St. Louis, we would come back here because we both really... read more

As I at a delicious meal and had excellent service, I was reading the reviews. My experience was much different than many of the reviewers. I had the fondu appetizer; cheese mushrooms onions and tortillas, wow that could have been dinner. Then I hand the sirloin tacos and again delicious. Even the iced tea was great. Yes it is pricey,...

Don't expect to see tacos or burritos or a la carte items on their menu, but what you will find is delicious. It's a bit too expensive but good. The cilantro jalapeño margaritas rock but are REALLY expensive

We took clients to Frida's for lunch since they asked for good Mexican. Friday has a Certificate of Excellence from TA and I've never been disappointed in one until now. It's nice atmosphere and lunch entrees were $8.99. However, from the table in our booth being too small thus too far to reach to eat, to watery salsa and stale... More

Atmosphere okay for a quiet mid afternoon. Nothing special though. Service as expected. Salsa was thin and rather bland. Chips were thick and needed salt.

Lee Thanks for taking the time to write a review on Tripadvisor, but I must admit we are rather perplexed by your rating us only a two star. The only comments you made were regarding our chips and salsa and those appear to be only your personal preferences and not the quality of our food. We have no other information... More

I will probably not return. Not even with a Groupon. First of all, we visited on Sunday because we'd called 2 weeks earlier to ask about happy hour, which we'd believed was offered on Saturday as well as Monday through Friday, and we were told it's offered all day Sunday. When we arrived and asked for the happy hour menu... More

Frida's is a very nice contemporary Mexican restaurant, and a nice change of pace from your typical Tex/Mex joint. I would personally recommend the roasted Pablano with scallops. Our waiter John did a wonderful job. They offer a variety of vegetarian options, so if that's what you're in the mood for, just ask. They have a very good wine menu,... More

We went to this restaurant looking for Mexican food. You know, tacos enchiladas burritos chips and sauce. I'm handicapped and was offered a table with barstools. Should have been my first clue. Looked at the menu and every item had some type of seafood. Ended up sitting about 20 minutes and no one even offered water. Finally picked up and... More

I wish I could give 5 stars to the staff because they are so professional and are so politically correct in making excuses for the new ownership of Frida's. I don't know what the new owner is thinking, not having most of the wine list on hand, taking short-cuts on ingredients from what I remember it used to be, and... More

This is NOT a typical Mexican Restaurant. It is a Medium Range Mex-Tex. No exclusive dishes. I ate there once and will never put a foot on it. The original owner sold it and never came back. If you really want Real Excellent Mexican Food go to K-Machos, two locations: Overland Park, KS or Olathe. This people are TOPS when... More
