If you want freshness. This is the place to go. The salsa bar was great. Their chips was so freshly made you can smell them tortilla chips as you walk in the restaurant. The atmosphere was relaxing and a bit hippy. They keep the place neat and clean as well.

Abundance of fresh salsas. Fish tacos are really good. Music is way too loud, even sitting on the patio!

Kind of pricy, taco bell is cheaper if you are going for self service anyway!
There are a lot of salsa's to try though, and a variety of beverages taco bell doesn't have!

I happened to stumble upon Fresco while wandering around the newly redeveloped downtown Kent. I was very skeptical at first, it looked very cookie cutter to the naked eye, although, very intriguing to a passer-by. I had a wonderful experience all-around; from service to food to overall satisfaction on both my wallet and palate. Come to find out, this is the only Fresco, as it is owned and operated by a father and son team, of which, obviously know what they are doing. You would think (from appearance) that this is just another franchise. But, dig deeper and you learn that this is a quality operation, from food to employees down to the art on the walls. One of the owners, the younger one (son) came to check on our meal, when we began to discuss the subtleties of the restaurant. One of the two are usually always there, making sure things operate as expected, which explains the quality of food and service. Also, he explained the importance of keeping everything local; not only local produce, but everything from the architects (right down the street), contractor (his uncle), marketing (Akron), iron work (Kent), and his best friend, who created all of the original artwork hanging throughout. This is truly an amazing place to eat, whether it be for a quick lunch or a relaxing dinner with a friend. Can't help but appreciate the effort and efficiency put forth. And, what's not to like about a mom and pop (err...pop and son) establishment in the heart of a plethora of corporate franchises?
