Reviewed October 20, 2013

We have eaten here many times, and we always have a very good meal. Service is excellent, ecor is nice, plenty of parking. The menu has a good variety of different foods. If you are in the area and like good mexican food, try Frida's.

“Second time -- less impressive”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Went to Frida's again with family and the second time was not as impressive as the first. The free chips and salsa are good and readily refilled. That's good. We had an appetizer that had chicken and cactus -- recommended by the server. It was a layered thing with mole sauce. Not bad but not stunning. We were there on a Monday night and the place was DEAD. My son and I had the tacos and they were quite good. He had chicken, me beef. They are on the small side but you get about 6 so it works. The tortillas are cooked on the grill so they have a smoky flavor and the overall taste was very good. I like this place and hope it survives!

Thank you for coming in again. Sorry you weren't as pleased as the first time but sounds like you did at least like your taco choices. Hopefully, the appetizer was the only disappointment and that yu will give us another try. Mondays are definitely a slow day for us but that is the restaurant world sometimes. Thank you for your feedback - I appreciate it!

“Great Mexican in suburban KCMO”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

We went here later on a Sunday night and had a great meal. Very different from Mexican we'd had before. My son had a avocado / shrimp dish and I had a stuffed pepper dish that was amazing. Also tried the jalapeno/cilantro margarita on a whim. Surprisingly tasty and refreshing. Strongly recommended.

An ugly mix up with the final bill nearly kept me from going with a 5, but it was a great experience.

“Not your typical Mexican meal”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

This is the second time I have eaten at Frida's. first was dinner at the old location, now lunch at the new location. I hesitate to say how good it is because I want to keep it a best kept secret. But in all honesty, the food is delicious! Such wonderful flavors and fresh ingredients. And not heavy like most Mexican dishes. You will love it.

“Frida's doesn't disappoint!”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

This was our second trip to Frida's...we wondered if it was as good as we remembered.
Chips and Salsa, first, then House Margarita's.
We loved what we had the first time and just had to order it again. My husband had the Stuffed Poblanos, I had the Chicken Tacos. Especially love the Sauce on the Poblano, and the fresh cilantro on the tacos - as well as the great beans that accompany them.
Service is exemplary, margarita's and food amazing, right down to the chips and salsa.
Everything about Frida's is wonderful. If it was closer to where we live we'd be there often!!
It was at least as good as we remembered!
