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. It’s the most successful mistake around! We are continuously adding new seasonal dishes so come often to try them all...

Frida's serves updated "gourmet" Mexican cuisine rather than the standard Tex-Mex, Southwestern or Northern Mexican food that's usually found in Mexican restaurants in the U.S. This is the type of contemporary food being prepared and served in middle- and upper-class homes and restaurants in Mexico, using traditional ingredients in new and creative ways. Frida's is therefore more expensive than the... More

After hearing my neighbors rave about Frida's, I finally went to try their food out. Unfortunately I was not a fan and found the food quite bland. Other family members got different items and expressed the same thing. I've spent many times in Mexico and would have expected more traditional food.

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.
