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.

Nice Alternative to Tex/Mex

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... read 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

Dear eigna77 Thank you for taking time to review Frida's and we were disheartened to learn of your recent experience. Yes, while Frida's is under new management, we have not changed any of our recipes and are still using only the freshest and finest ingredients available as we understand how important quality and consistency is. We apologize we are not... 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

Went to an early lunch on a Saturday, and the menu featured plates around $16 - $24. They let us order from their lunch menu, which seemed to hover around $8-9. It's a nice place in a strip mall, but it seems to me they're playing on the stereotype of the southern JoCo resident who will overpay for a variety... More

I ordered the cheese enchiladas, which came with refried beans and cilantro rice. Everything was edible, but very bland and boring. The rice was basically boiled rice with cilantro and nothing else. The beans were basically mashed beans. No seasonings, no flavor other than just plain bean flavor. The enchiladas were the best thing on the plate, but nothing to... More

I've been to Frida's with a large group, with just my family of 4, and on a date with just my wife. I've been when it's crowded and busy and when it's quiet and intimate. In every case, the service has been attentive and helpful without being obtrusive. The menu feels a touch intimidating at times -- how to choose... More

Real deal food. Upscale atmosphere. Awesome and knowledgeable staff. From street tacos to killer fresh seafood. Pork in green chillies is amazing. Skirt steak in red chillies I request at lunch. They make this dinner item for me. Soupy beans rule. If you don't try the corn ice cream you have missed out. Nobody could say this place does not... More

From jalapeno margaritas (don't worry, it's only the "essence" of a jalapeno without the heat) to appetizers that are rich enough to be a meal by themselves, we had a great dinner at Frida's last Saturday. There are no "burritos, sanchos, tacos, or tostados" on this menu unless you want a fish taco. Everything we had was extremely tasty, and... More

If you love Mexican food and you are looking at the next level of true Mexican food Frida’s is the place. Mexican food varies depending on which part of the country you eat. If you are in Mexico City, Guadalajara and other large cities near the center of Mexico you will find that Frida’s cuisine is exactly what Mexican food... More
