Good Mexican food at reasonable prices and they're open late

If you're someone who makes a clear distinction between "New Mexican" and "Mexican" food, be forewarned that Federico's offers the latter. Their food is consistently good, but their condiments are what set them apart: the pico de gallo and guacamole, in particular, are excellent.

I normally get breakfast here so I can't really speak intelligently about the rest of the menu. The breakfast burritos are amazing and I've never been disappointed. It's a good idea to call in your order if using the drive through since everything is cooked to order. Service is ok and with the more than fair prices it's totally worth... More

My husband loves their Menudo and picks some up to go on occasion. I didn't find a lot to be crazy about, but it's a great spot to pick up a quick bite to eat, and very inexpensive.

Don't ask for nachos they will give you chips with shredded cheese not melted. Ok flavors. Texture is scary. If they would speed drive thru up and slow down prep then things would fall into place. The price for food would be worth the wait. Crap food with a long side of exhaust, not worth the time in line. Don't... More

Maybe we ordered the wrong food (some kind of burrito that was horrible), but it was the type of food a monkey could make. Don't think I'll take a chance on this one again!!!

Federico's will fill you up, fast and at amazingly low prices. Nothing fancy here but who cares? Order one of the extensive choices of burritos, breakfast or otherwise, and get ready for a two-handed culinary workout. I've managed to polish them off, but not often. The menu is large. The portions are large. No wonder it's a local favorite.

Huge portions of great tasting food. Each plate is better than the last and they do not scrimp and it is ALL good. The opened a new one closer to my house on Juan Tabo so thank you!
