Description: Fresh Taqueria has an eclectic menu that fuses Mexican Spanish and Southern cuisines. Our menu changes frequently depending upon what is available from local farms. We offer many gluten free and vegetarian options on our menu. Our food is prepared fresh daily sourced from local and sustainable sources. We are located in the red building across from suntrust on Periwinkle Way. Our parking lot is the third driveway west of the restaurant (the empty lot with our sign out front).

Best tacos were: Mama's buttermilk chicken, Camaron - shrimp, the Southern and the Fish Taco. Very fresh. Kids loved the Captain Eli's root beer. The Nacho chips with 3 various salsa's and guacamole were also a great appetizer. The interior need's some care but the food is excellent.
Note: parking lot is 3 driveways down from the restaurant. With some more diner's it would certainly have a better atmosphere.

We tried this restaurant but were a little dissapointed when we left.
The food is not very special and the place looks better from the outside than the inside.
People are friendly and the price is OK but that's about it.

We ate here for dinner one night and could not believe that it was so empty. The food was delicious. Everything we tried was uniquely flavored, although I can understand others' reviews when they said that the flavors were often surprising (this didn't bother us at all and we enjoyed the unexpected flavors which all blended well together). We tried the black beans, salsa trio (mango salsa in particular was excellent), fish taco, chicken taco, couscous, and cheese plate. The couscous was the only dish that was really surprising--much heavier on the balsamic than I expected and not at all sweet despite the description (but it was still good). My only complaint is that there is no kids menu which could be tricky given the spicy flavors, although our daughter was happy to eat the black beans, some pieces of the tacos, and the cheese plate. I am pretty sure we will eat here again before we leave Sanibel, as all of the other restaurants seem to offer the same kind of (rather boring) food.

The tacos were amazing, just like the ones i had in mexico. Salsa, chips, guac and margaritas were excellant. The only thing needing improvement was the interior decor

We were not impressed, the service was poor, the food was mediocre. We did enjoy the salsas, but since we ordered both salsa and guacamole, I would have appreciated some additional chips or at least the offer from the server. My husband tried the enchiladas, however, you cannot mix the fillings which makes for a very boring plate. I had the carnitas taco and the spicy shrimp, both were ok, but the flavor of the corn tortilla overpowered the other flavors.
