“Good for partying at night”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Food was good, however i mostly gone there to party at night. It has fire pits on the balcony/patio area that overlooks at the ocean. The location is perfect, right on PCH. IT has a good vibe, drinks were good.

“Good food, good drinks, fast service”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Dropped into Fred's for a fast lunch mid-afternoon. It was during a volleyball tournament, so we expected a long wait to sit- took about 5 minutes to get a table. Prices were reasonable- both husband and I had a taco plate. The pescado (fish tacos) were tasty and well cooked- grilled with a light seasoning. Price per person including a margarita came to about $20 a person, which I felt was was reasonable for a place that could easily be described as a tourist trap.

Bottom line: Food is above average, service was attentive, even though it was 2pm on a Sunday and they were slammed, drinks were strong and well-made.

“Always loud and lively”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Great view of the beach. Good food, Better drinks, Great people watching. Service is usually on the slow side because it's always so busy. Don't come if you're in a hurry. You're gonna wait for a table and wait for your check.

“Just OK Mexican (Fast) Food”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Food was less than fine, drinks are average and service was TERRIBLE. The atmosphere was cool, very noisy, and not really friendly for a child (not allowed anyways after 9pm I think). Seriously, there is so much Mexican restaurant options in the area, I definitely think you should pass on this one.
