“Pork is savory”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Nice pork. The guacamole needs some work, but otherwise can't complain. Coming from the US and seeing teens behind the counter, i automatically thought, here comes the 'too good to work here' attitude. Not the case. The service was very helpful and even made recommendations.

“Even Steve Aoki Loves Frijoles!!!”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

What a fantastic place. All the staff are just so friendly, the service is wonderful. The food is indescribably flavorful. Pork Carnita ftw. The wide arrangement of topping and sauces is so accommodating for every customers taste. The TacoBag aka Fry-Bag is the stoners dream. Every chance i get to stop by Frijoles just makes my life that much happier. Who knew something as simple as a burrito or taco could make such a huge impact on someone!

ALSO, STEVE AOKI (world famous DJ) WENT TWO DAYS IN A ROW!!!

“Great service and delicious food.”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

We had this on our list of restaurants to try while in Niagara. The only Disappointment was actually trying to find it. We stayed at the four points sheraton on fallsview blvd and the portage road we sawnaround there didn't lead us to where we needed to be.

We accidentally stumbled on the road when we stayed for a day at Great Wolf Lodge which is closer to the Whirlpool Falls. When we saw the road we were excited we would actuakky get to try it out.

Service was incredible. My daughter had a very specific request as a picky eater and the staff went above and beyond to accomodate her.

The food was delicious. I too thought it would be like Chipotle which is a favorite of mine but it was actually better.

This place was worth the hassle to find it. Hint: map it before you go.

“Chipotle's Northern Cousin”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

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!
