We recently checked out Frijoles in search of a quick Mexican fix. Its not authentico by any means but it is tasty and filling. After reading some of the reviews I just wanted to mention a few things:

Bland- to me the meat had good flavor, as did the corn salsa and sauce. The black beans however were very bland and overwhelmed the other flavors. So if you find it a bit bland, either skip the beans or head to the hot sauce station on the wall by the counter and adjust the flavor. They have everything from Franks to my fave Yucatecan hot sauces.

Watery Sauce/Cream- the sauces/cream itself isnt watery. Its the liquid from the meat, beans and salsas combining with them that makes that watery sauce. Either ask them to drain it well, or learn to hunch when you eat.

Service was great. The owner was taking orders and was super friendly. Overall it was a decent meal for a decent price. The only real complaint I had was they had little/no A/C and not even a ceiling fan to break up the heat. Hope that changes!

Amazing food. Huge portions for a small price. I make three meals out of one burrito! The couple that owns it are the nicest people and always very welcoming, their staff are just as nice, and always help with a smile!
A great place.

We stopped here for lunch after reading the reviews and were not disappointed the burritos and tacos were great and filling. It is more like a Mexican subway so don't expect it to be a fancy restaurant. The service was excellent even making sure to call you by name. All the meats were fresh and sauces were tasty. I will return!

Food was excellent, but expensive, as on par with every Falls restaurant. We had the tres tacos, chicken quesedilla, chips and salsa (5 round chips the size of a CD), and 2 Cokes (bottles, so no refills), and it was $26. Portions are small, so I can't say we left feeling stuffed, but every bite was delicious.
