Went there for their Taco Tuesday, which you can get a hard or shell taco with ground beef or chicken. The meat was bland and had no taste. My wife enjoyed her meal and the chips and salsa was good. Service was good as well.

I ordered the fried chimichanga. The beef was very tender and flavor was perfect. The wife ordered a Grande burrito. Great taste and a healthy serving.

While our meals were good, service was a bit off. I think they were busy with some larger groups and we got someone who is not normally a server. After he took our drink and food orders we never saw him again. A waitress noticed...we were waiting, went to check on our order and came back with our plates. They were warm not hot and most likely had been sitting there for a bit. The flavours were good though and we enjoyed our dinners. The waitress took over our table and service was fine from that point on. Unprompted, she did not charge us for my husband's second beer to make up for the wait.More

This restaurant was 1/2 a mile from our hotel. Ever walked in a place and it was so tastefully decorated you thought, “This is gonna be good?” Well, it was! The waitress was genuine and friendly. She recommended the chimichangas and they were the best...Mexican dish I’ve had this side of San Antonio. The plating was beautiful, not pretentious, and the margarita was spot on! My mother-in-law said maybe the best pina colada she’s ever had. Bravo, Frida’s!More

Here from out of town with a party of 8. Came here in a recommendation. Food was good but everything was amazingly slow. It wasn’t even a busy night. Not worth coming.

I have been to this restaurant many times as it is local to my area. I always dine with friends and always order the same meal every time - shredded chicken nachoes - perfect every time!

Even though I visited more towards the end of service/open time (no, not 5 minutes to close - more like 90 - wouldn't disrespect like that :) I received super attentive service. The server was very friendly and did their job well. The drinks and...food came very quickly and were wonderful. The dinner portion is huge; I got three meals out of it. Go beyond the Tex-Mex offerings; you won't be disappointed!More

We dine at Fridah's several times a month, so it's not news that we like it, but I just discovered a new favorite dish: Camarones Rellenos. Baked bacon-wrapped jumbo shrimp--a dozen of them--with avocado slices, rice and salad. Delicious.

Been driving by this place for years and finally stopped in for dinner. The food was great. I had pork with salsa verde. The salsa Verde was awesome. The service was very friendly and the prices were a good value

My husband and I have been in Virginia for a week and Mexican food sounded really good! The $4 happy hour margaritas were a wonderful surprise! I ordered the #1 combo (1 enchilada and 1 taco) with beans and rice, and my husband had the...shrimp salad (which was huge). They were both very good. I really wanted to get flan, but I ate too much! Very good efficient service - I can’t really say friendly. They do have patio seating too. I would highly recommend this restaurant.More

I along with seven friends enjoyed dinner at this restaurant. The menu is extensive, and the servers are friendly and efficient. The food was good and arrived in a timely fashion as ordered. The restaurant offers inside dining options (booths and large as well as...small tables) and an outside covered patio. This was my second visit to this restaurant and I enjoyed the meal as much this time as on my first visit.More
