If you have ever had REAL mexican food in your life, do not eat here. If you think Taco Bell or Chipotle are real mexican food and you like those two, you will be fine here. In my opinion this place is terrible, and over priced. On its best day it does not even come close to a low end Chipotle.
Where to start. . .sure the staff were friendly, to the regulars they were friends with and the people they knew. Behind the counter amongst themselves there was poor communication and constant bickering about which customer was supposed to receive what, and how things were supposed to be prepared.
The food. . .like another reviewer stated, the chips and salsa/guacamole are a joke. They're 5 or 6 tortillas about the size of a CD overfried to a rock hard oily crisp with about 2 ounces of salsa or guacamole. For $4.50 this is simply ridiculous.
The tacos were disappointing as well, and the meat was not flavorful.
Maybe all my trips to Mexico and the numerous tacos carts in Akron have spoiled me, with $0.70 to $1.50 tacos, al pastor, cecina, steak, carnitas, cabeza, cachete, barbacoa, and chicharron - but still $24 for 6 tacos, chips and a coke at Frijoles was less than not worth it. I say dont bother coming here, your money will be better spent elsewhere.
I am really surprised this place has recevied so many good reviews on tripadvisor. I understand this is Niagara falls and options are limited and overpriced, but after reading so many raving reviews and then actually visiting and eating here, I was and am thoroughly disappointed.
