“Fresh fast food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Imagine if Chipotle had a larger menu including tacos of fish, grilled chicken, steak as well as a salsa bar. That would be Zona Fresca. For a quick meal that doesn't break the bank you'll like the freshness and tastiness of the food here. It's a straightforward restaurant but with honest food and much tastier then many of the classic Mexican/Tex Mex restaurants I've been to.

“Good healthy Mexican food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

We went there for dinner the other night and were looking for something quick, healthy and good. We were pleased with our choice. We both had the tostada which was fresh with a choice of beans. The staff was friendly and the service was reasonable.
Be prepared that this is a pick up your tray and get your own refills sort of place. We didn't know that when we went - so we were a lille surprised.
It has hit our must go back list though - so enjoy.

“Teenagers Welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

Two words.... Cali Wrap. I just cannot get enough!!! Zona Fresca is the ideal place for a casual lunch with friends. I usually go after school with friends or on the weekends after a morning surf. The outdoor seating is great for Florida weather. The orders are made efficiently and take out is quick and easy. Their tortilla chips are amazing and taste homemade and fresh. Service is great; menu is amazing. The cali wrap is soooooo good whether you order it with beef or chicken. The burritos and quesadillas are great too. It's a must visit if you love Mexican food!
