Description: 22 Years In Antigua! Fridas Serving The Best Quality Mexican Food And Cocktails. Fun Place With A Buzz Located Right At The Iconic Street "calle Del Arco"

A poor attempt at Mexican not to mention horrible service! My boyfriend had just gotten a beer when the waiter knocked the bottle and glass over on the floor whilst trying to grab for the bill. Not only did he refuse to replace the beer but he gave serious attitude and avoidance! He kept spraying horrible cleansing products over the table so that we had to move. Never apologized. Finally asked the manager for another beer which was given with total attitude as well. Will never go back!

I asked our tour leader for a recommendation of a specialty and he suggested any of the three dishes in the upper right corner of the menu. Had the chicken with corn truffles (whatever those are), loved it, and had it again a week later. US visitors can eat excellent Mexican food anytime and anywhere--try a local specialty instead.

We stubbled upon this place will we were looking for coffee. We had only the intentions for grabbing quick cup of coffee, but decided to eat. We were so happy that we did!!

We ordered the 2 for 1 chicken tacos, thinking that it would be like every other chicken taco place we had been in Central America. But they were beyond that!! They came with 4 mini hot tortillas with grilled chicken in each. Above the chicken were 5 small dishes containing pico de gallo, sour cream beans, onions and cilantro, and one with melted cheese. They were AMAZING!!!!

We returned the next day for their 2 for 1 enchiladas and were even more happy!! I got the Mexican enchiladas and my boyfriend got the spicy ones. Both were smothered in mole sauce and cheese and sour cream. They were by far the best we had all trip!

The coffee was great too and the service was fast and friendly!!

Fridas has the best tacos. Someone there usually speaks English for the ones struggling with Spanish. All of their food has ben really good and their flan is exceptional. They also offer delivery.
