This is my second visit to a Mexican restaurant since arriving in California. This one wasn’t as nearly as good as the first. The drinks are very weak and subpar. The food was okay, but it wasn’t different than Mexican that you can get anywhere....More

Had a couple of draft beers, guacamole and chips. Loved the beach view and the vibe. Impressed how attentive the staff was even as busy as it was.

We went to this place as it was recommended by family who live in the area. We were not disappointed and found the food good quality and nice. The ambience was nice and this is very central to Huntington Beach just a stones throw away...More

We got a quick bite to eat here. The server was fast and the food was great. We had chicken enchiladas. I would go again.

Even as a Huntington Beach resident we enjoy going to Fred’s. Our table had a great view of the ocean and the vibe is very casual. They have a nice bar area and the food is delicious.

I usually don't call out people, but the waitress that served us was hands down the worst (M). Not only did we receive horrible service, but the same waitress spilled an entire Margarita on the couple next to us and all she said was sorry...More

It was late and we just wanted to eat. Fred’s had a fairly short wait so we gave it a try. The margaritas were very good. My grilled mahi-mahi tacos were good but the queso was way too thin. Music in the restaurant was too...More

We followed the reviews on TripAdvisor and went there yesterday... the service was the only positive point. We ordered different dishes: burrito, tacos, calamari... we all had a difficult digestion and still suffering the next day. Will not repeat it.

There is parking right in front of the restaurant if you are lucky enough to find one. If not then you continue down the road one block turn right and there will be public parking that Fred's will validate for.
