Good Fish Tacos

Food is good but fairly high priced for a food court place. There is often musical entertainment in the seating area. Behind Ace Hardware. Park on the back side of the shopping center.

The first visit I ordered shrimp ceviche tostadas and loved it. The next two visits it was not available and on the third visit (a Monday) I tried to pin down when the ceviche was made and it may have been the Fri./Sat. previous. They wouldn't consider discounting it and so I passed.

The range of choices at Federico's is decent, the quality of dishes pretty fine. We liked the smiling lady behind the counter and the open kitchen. The range of veggie choices is limited. The veggie burrito was fine indeed.

Tried to eat here on Saturday buttery had run out of carne asada. Then tonight they ran out of lettuce. I know they were quite busy, but when the two parties after you get their food before you do(45 minute wait), it does not send a good message. My daughter enjoyed her chicken burrito as did my wife with the... More

We were pleasantly surprised at our lunch. My husband and I both ordered burritos and struggled to finish them, they were huge! My kids age 11 and 12 each ordered bean and cheese burritos and loved them. Great option for a family friendly lunch.

We were in Princeville and decided to grab some lunch before driving back to the south shore. We stopped in a small mall with shops and restaurants. There was a small courtyard the served 2 - 3 little restaurants. We noticed most people had food from Federico's. We decided to try it and were surprised how good it was. It... More

Awesome fish/shrimp tacos were great, huge and very tasty. Service could have been better but this seems to be a trend with a lot of places on the island.

We were looking for fish tacos close to our hotel in Princeville and Frederico's was the closest to us. After reading the reviews we decided to give them a shot, but we were a little apprehensive after reading about the size of the tacos being small. Not sure what that reviewer got but the 2 fish tacos and 1 shrimp... More

Great Mexican take-out breakfast according to my Houstonian husband. He was very surprised by the authenticity. A small number of tables outside that are shared with Le Petit Bakery.
