Great food and fast friendly service, we usually get burritos, very tasty and filling. Nice selection of extra sauces. Great value for the price.

Fresh Mex I believe is hands down the best Mexican food in Placerville! They have fast service, the food is always fresh and the staff is friendly.

I eat here 3 - 5 times each week. The food is always good and the grilled fish tacos are the best. The price is great and the staff is friendly. The restaurant can get crowded at lunchtime, but that's because the food is so good.

One of my favorite places to stop on the ride to or from our place at Lake Tahoe. Delicious comida at very reasonable prices. The hotter salsas are damn hot, even for a former Texan like myself. Way to go!

I won't go back. If you ask for something you get in other Mexican restaurants, they look at you like you're crazy.. I didn't like the food. They don't have any good salsa. There are too many other good Mexican places in this town to ever go here again.

This place has some very good Mexican food for an "express" place. The prices are great. The eating area is so-so but can be overlooked when you need a quick good plate of Mexican food. They have a salsa bar with chips...complimentary! Located in a stipmall type area across from Save-Mart and K-Mart.

I love this place! It's small and crowded when you walk in and order cafeteria-style. Take your plate, get your drink, grab a table, load up on chips and salsa, and dig in! They have a good size menu and everything is absolutely authentic; it's run by a Mexican family. It also serves a large number of Mexican patrons; a... More

This used to be our only taqueria in west Placerville and it was good...that is until Carnival came to town. Carnival is a huge step up from run down Fresh Mex which last time I went wasn't "fresh" feeling at all. In fact the place seemed so nasty dirty and I won't be going back. They need to get a...
