I had the Siesta Maker naked on a plate with lettuce, rice and beans and it was as much as I could eat. Fantastic and all freshly made. Little wonder this restanurant is so popular. They even sell Mexican beer

Fish taco plate with black beans and rice for <$10. They will give you a basket of homemade chips and the best habanero salsa ever.

Service was fast and the food was a little bit bland, but other than that it was very tasty! The patio was a nice place to chill and relax

Been coming here since 2004. This is hands down the best restaurant in Fort Lauderdale for something quick, fresh and healthy. Try "the zone" next time you head in. You won't be disappointed. Here's to another 12 years, Zona.

They double wrap your chicken with 2 corn tortillas so it doesn't fall apart and feels more substantial than other taco joings and you get chips and salsa with everything, good bargain, great food. Local favorite.

Zona Fresca is the definition of fresh ingredients makes for good food. Everything is made in front of you in a very clean atmosphere. Try the three taco sampler plate or just skip to the fish tacos. My favorite. They're perfect
