Description: First off, let’s lose the “quotes.”“Fresh” “Healthy” “Organic” “Sustainable” We’re sick of green-washed buzzwords you hear a lot but don’t mean much at all. So, here’s our no-quote truth: Our food is freakin’ good. It’s how we went from one bumpin’ burrito shop in hell-raising, health-conscious South Beach to over 9 (… and counting) along the East Coast. Why’s our food so good? We use only Humanely Raised meat and our produce is delivered daily and prepared on-site that same day for all our homemade salsa, sauces and sides. We also have vegetarian, low-carb and low-fat options. But we’ll be the first to tell you that a mound of sour cream on a low-carb wrap … still has a mound of sour cream. So keep it in check Madam Denial. So, yeah. If you want delicious, freshly-prepared Mexican food with a precocious, often-offends attitude … then welcome. We like you already.

“An Excellent System and A Unique Location”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

There are Lime Fresh Grills elsewhere and that is a good thing. The food is in fact fresh, the quality of the ingredients excellent , the delivery system is customer friendly and relaxed and the price is right. All that being said, this first Lime Fresh Grill is the one to go to... I have eaten here for years and years and never had a bad meal. The crowd is a mix of MB locals and colorful visitors (saw Rod Stewart there late one night) and the outdoor seating is great, tropics under the awning. This place is Miami Beach pure and simple and always will be regardless of how many copies they put up on the opposite side of the causeway.

“Great fresh mexican!”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

This is one of our favorite places in South Beach. The food is so fresh and light. The hot sauce bar is wonderful. The outdoor seating is not fancy but extremely pleasant. Very good prices as well.

“Average Mexican”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

I do like the "hole in the wall" ambience. Food is okay, a little pricey for what you get but I know rents are very high in the area.

“Great Food ....Rude Manager!”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Visiting South Beach from Germany ... Lime has great Food but a very disrespectful rude Manager ( short white guy) ... The staff itself was friendly but the manager messed it up ....came here with my family today and we had a question concerning the tacos and asked the nearest person around which happened to be the manager ... he answered in a very rude and disrespectful way that everything is written in the menu and he has no time to explain since he has better things to do as a manager ..us coming from Germany we didn't understand some words that's the only reason why we asked... one of the waitresses saved the situation otherwise we would have left this place immediately ...whatever personal problem the manager is going through he shouldn't leave it out on the customers
