“Too bad, a bad idea executed so poorly.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2009

I wanted to like 1 fresh, it all seemed so great.

An eclectic menu, affordable prices, and a great word of mouth.

The staff and restaurants are even top notch, the problem is the food is very, very, below average. It takes like unseasoned Ramen Noodles to be honest.

“Extremely Fresh and Hot Food and it is Not Asian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2009

For the past year we have been regular customers patronizing this establishment normally 1 time per week. You can always expect the food to be made of fresh ingredients and arrives at the table extremely hot. The sauces used are made on site therefore from week to there is some consistency issues. Prior to ordering the employees are more than willing to allow you taste the sauces.

I have read several of the negative comments previously written and have never had those experiences. The concept of this restaurant requires you to develop the blend of ingredients for your own personal taste. I would anticipate that those individuals who have had bad expereinces just didn't combine the right ingredient with the right sauces...
So who is to blame?

For locals and regular customers if you are on the e-mail list weekly specials are sent to you, and can be redeemed by knowing the "weekly phrase" for the week!

“Do it your way stir fry...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2009

Do it your way stir fry. Choose meat, veggies, rice/pasta and a sauce at the counter and they bring it to you. Good but not remarkable food. Friendly staff.

“People must love grease in order for this place to stay in business....”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2008

I have to admit, I like the concept. You get a laminated menu that you write on -- you pick the starch (rice or pasta), meat, vegatables, and sauce. In turn, they make it from scratch -- sort of like a "hip" Mongolian BBQ.

While the cocept is neat, the food is terrible. They start with greasy rice, add greasy meat, overcooked vegatables, and greasy sauce, and then toss it around in a bunch of oil. Get the idea?

This is, without a doubt, the greasiest meal I've had in Tallahassee. Certainly a super-sized McDonald meal has less calories and a lower fat content. The problem is that 1 Fresh tries to market itself as healthy and fresh. There is absolutely nothing healthy about this place -- nothing (unless you consider a high-fat diet healthy).

To make matters worse, this place is very expensive. My meal was over $12 -- for a bowl of greasy rice with greasy frozen chicken and limp vegatables? Keep in mind, this is a fast food joint without table service.
