Reviewed August 13, 2013

Very enjoyable meal. Loud, very loud, but since everyone was having a good time, it's hard to complain. Good service, better margaritas and exceptional pork w/ green sauce is what makes life fun. Would happily for there again and again.

“Awesome food!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

We went late on a Friday night. The place was packed but we were seated quickly. Waiters were on top of it, great service and the drinks were excellent. Highly recommend the Shane King Burrito, muah!!! Prices were very reasonable. Did I mention the service and food were excellent....

“The best Mexican food in town.”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Frida's is unbelievably good. The nicest Mexican restaurant in Memphis. It has a nicer upscale atmosphere while being very casual and the staff is always super friendly. When you go, try the margarita special. Fajita chicken, shrimp, and steak over a bed of rice, cheese, and vegetables. It comes in a huge portion, but you can always split it with someone or have left overs. The margaritas are also very very good.

“Great local mexican food!”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

I've visited Frida's several times since it opened six months ago. Always a good meal. They have a large room upstairs for parties or larger gatherings. Wide selection of adult beverages. Food and portions were great.

“Choose someplade else”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

Recently ate there with family for the 2nd time and very disappointed in the customer service and the food prep. Server did not bring one my wife's ordered items. And, later, when my order finally arrived, which included several items, the chilli relleno was actually cold inside, suggesting that it had been microwaved. Morevover, all the items for my meal were slopped onto my plate and resemblered an inadvertent stew of some sort (taco, beans , rice, relleno, etc.). I mentioned this to the waitress, who was very nice, and sufddenly a male employee who semed angry appeared at my table, never introduced himself and asked mer if i knew more about Mexican cooking than him. An interesting way to start a conversation, for sure. I suggested that the restaurant may want to take a closer look at and food prep and presentation as well as attitudes towards customers, then I told him to leave my table and we would not returning in the future. This new restaurant has a long way to go if they hope to succeed long-term,. Too bad since we love mexican food and it so close to our home. Right now, Taco Bell has them beat!! Might add that their parking is a mess when busy.
