Attended retirement dinner. Unusual dishes, not the usual Mexican fare. Thought it was overrated and quite expensive. Restaurant was quiet, not what I would choose for a lively party. Service was good.

My husband and I dropped by here for lunch one day after we had heard great reviews for this place. We both found the food overpriced and underwhelming. They were not busy at all, but the staff had a few "regulars" in there. They seemed more interested in yakking them up than taking care of customers.

Great food and reasonable prices. Excellent service. The margaritas were fairly strong, so be aware. :-)

When my son is in town he loves to have lunch at Frida's. It's very quiet on weekdays at lunch, and our waiter was prompt and attentive. My son ordered a stuffed poblano pepper topped with a walnut cream sauce and dotted with pomegranate seeds. It certainly wasn't a combination I would have developed, but he said it was fantastic....

This is simply the best Mexican my wife and I ever tasted. Although the food is so unique, it's almost not Mexican in the manner in which it is presented and tastes. We're in Overland Park about every other year, and when we're there, we eat at Frida's at least twice in a week. The service is outstanding too. Frida's... More

I have almost tried everything on the menu. It's been a delicious journey and I always look forward to my visit. The Especial de Atole (corn milk ice cream) is absolutely one of the best ice creams around.

I had the $2.99 special, but it is $1.00 off and only special if you spend $1.65 on a drink. Also, though no where on the menu you see on the glass, does it say they will charge you and extra $0.35 for to go orders. It is just a very chintzy approach. To add to that, when it reads... More

I took my husband to Frida's to celebrate his birthday on November 2010. He surprised me by asking me to marry him!!! We will always have a soft spot in our hearts for Frida's. We had Valentines day dinner there this year. It was the best.

Who would have thought combining fish, spinach, rice, chipotle sauce with raspberry sauce (Pescado a la Frambuesa) would be good. I was pleasantly surprised. Very good food and a decent price. I feel the prices were a bit high for the amount of food you get; but the food was very good. My wife got a shrimp dish which she... More
