Our family visited Fridas over the weekend. One reason we went was because they do not serve typical Tex-Mex. Their dishes are unique, creative, and tasty! Their margaritas are delicious as well! The tamales were delicious, the chile rellenos were authentic, the guacamole was wonderful. I'll definitely go again when I'm in Overland Park.

We love this place and special foods. Always great and not your American idea of Mexican food. This is authentic but so fsrn good. It is worth the cost and a must try Located northeast of Costco in OP.

I would charaterize this as good TexMex. The details were on point. The tortilla chips fresh and tender and the rice excellent. The presentation of the food was very good. My chicken fajita was good (lots of mushrooms) but then it's hard to mess up a fajita. My daughter enjoyed her meal too.

Stopped in for a nice lunch with my girls. The menu was limited, and I understand contemporary but the food was obscure. The wait staff seemed less than friendly or helpful and slightly irritated that I had younger people with me (extremely well behaved teens). I felt the value was not there; price not justified by the portions quality or... More

To say the least we were disappointed. Friday's is advertised as contemporary Mexican cuisine and could be just that if they would hire a chef instead of a short order cook. We tried two of there most popular dishes, first the bacon wrapped pork loin served with mashed sweet potatoes. The presentation was excellent but the pork loin was little... More

I was disappointed in their food. Did not have the taste of other Mexican restaurants I wouldn't return.

This place has upscale Mexican fare. It's not like your typical Mexican food joint with the traditional dishes. If you want enchiladas and tacos, you need to go somewhere else. But if you want some authentic, upscale fine dining - this is the place to go. Everything is fantastic and the Tres Leches cake is awesome! I highly recommend this... More

This is an upscale yet still casual place located close to the intersection of 119th and Metcalf. The chicken enchiladas and the yucatan chicken were both quite tasty. With 2 beers, tax and tip, lunch for 2 came to $30. If we hadn't moved to St. Louis, we would come back here because we both really liked the food. Service... More

As I at a delicious meal and had excellent service, I was reading the reviews. My experience was much different than many of the reviewers. I had the fondu appetizer; cheese mushrooms onions and tortillas, wow that could have been dinner. Then I hand the sirloin tacos and again delicious. Even the iced tea was great. Yes it is pricey,...

Don't expect to see tacos or burritos or a la carte items on their menu, but what you will find is delicious. It's a bit too expensive but good. The cilantro jalapeño margaritas rock but are REALLY expensive

Enjoy the fresh flavors of authentic contemporary Mexican cuisine, the way it is enjoyed across Mexico. Choose from numerous special dishes such as Pescado al Cilantro, Pollo en Hoja Santa, Camarones Tulum, Tacos de Cochinita or Arracherea a la Mexicana. Frida’s is open seven days a week for both lunch and dinner and features the best margaritas in town. Don’t forget to ask about the story behind our signature dessert – Especiales de Atole. It’s the most successful mistake around! We are continuously adding new seasonal dishes so come often to try them all...
