if you want fresh roasted peppers in your salsa, made to order grilled shrimp, chix or beef, with black or pinto, brown or white rice and other traditional foods, but in a fast food format, this place is for you. Its the best of both worlds: fast food that is nutritious, fresh and has variety. (Although a former chef, I... More

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

We just returned from our 2nd visit in 3-days, which should tell you how much that we liked it. Very friendly staff and very fresh ingredients.

Zona Fresca has been consistently good for years. The food is always tasty, freshly made to order and it is pretty healthy overall. The salsa bar always looks clean and appetizing. Service is very fast even when it's really busy and the counter staff are usually courteous and friendly. Also, very good value for money, price is right,

All fresh, cooked to order Mexican. Try the fish tacos - they are excellent. Salsa is some of the best around, and always fresh. Chips and salsa are worth the trip alone. We frequent both the Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach locations. Pompano Beach is newer and a little less crowded so if you have a choice this is probably... More

Can't agree more with previous review: Don't spread the word, it's popular enough. 2:30 yesterday, people pouring in non-stop, but still fast service. Awesome salsa bar.

A salsa bar with delicious homemade salsas, pickled peppers, carrots, onions, limes, etc. I like their taco platters that come with beans and rice. I love fish tacos and theirs are excellent. I often order their large Siesta-Maker burritos, with a choice of meats, and... More

The food is cheap and good. I ordered "The zone": Chicken breast, salad, beans and rice. The food was good and I paid less than 10 dollars. A good place to have lunch and go back to the job.
