Best Mexican in Frederick

Visited on a Monday night my first visit since I moved three years ago. Food is still great I got the 3 choice platter (beef Burrito, Beef Enchilada, and beef tamale) for $11.46 with an iced tea for a drink. With the dinner you get beans, rice and a small pile of lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream... read more

From the looks of it on the outside, it looked like an upscale Tex-Mex. But the food was mediocre at best. Had the stake Duo of tacos and the MEAT was the best thing on the plate. The sides of beans and rice was just about palatable. The salsa and chips were good, but boy are they stingy with the... More

I've been to Fajita Grande several times in the past year and the staff is always friendly, helpful and quick. The food is pretty good, I especially recommend the chicken tamales. The "pick two" or "pick three" options on the back of the menu is a good deal and gives you a nice variety.

The atmosphere is really laid back and the drink specials are superb. Free chips and salsa with every meal. The portion size is HUGE. Word of warning, if you get the queso, its going to come out hot as volcanic lava. Don't burn your tongue. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it must have been... More

The food is affordable and always delicious. My favorite dish is probably the fajitas. They are so flavorful. Other favorites include the tamales and Burrito Grande. The lunch specials are a great value too. Viva la Grande!

Staying in the area and wanted to stop by....Well not disappointed, margaritas were definitely "top shelf" and went down as one of the best we have had. We ordered shrimp fajitas and a grand burrito, both were excellent and about the best we have had anywhere. Chips and Salsa that came out first were excellent, salsa tasted like made today.... More

The place is looking tired. The food is OK, not good and not bad. First chip from the chips and salsa was limp and soggy. Drinks are OK, too. Negra Modelo on draft is a nice find. Our server was excellent.

The best mexican food in the area. Have been coming back here for years now. If you are into honest non pretentious food, this is the place. Their chimichangas are to die for.

Very nice, indeed. Lunch portions were more than adequate. Our table had steak fajitas, chicken fajitas and taco salads. Dishes were well-seasoned without being hot (you can always add Tabasco). What was really unusual was that the owner came around to our table and asked if we would like seconds of anything - no charge. When's the last time that... More
