It isn't fine dining, if that's what you are looking for but it is good food at a good price and fast.

When my husband and I first moved to Fort Lauderdale, we frequented this place quite often. It was consistently a great value for our money. The food is great, the staff is friendly and there is never a really long wait.

Fresh, delicious, made to order mexican food that reasonably priced. Parking can be a challenge as the lot fills up quickly. I guess that's a testament to the great food.

Nice fast-food type of Mexican cuisine. Nothing fancy but good variety of the fresh Mexican food. Self-service and really fast fulfilling of the orders. The place is clean and stuff is friendly. Money wise it is really not expensive. You can dine-in or order to take out. I wish to have something similar at home.

My husband and I had a craving for fish tacos. The fish tacos at Zona Fresca did not disappoint! $3 each and huge! Great salsa bar. Friendly service. Only con was the many aggressive ducks out on the patio looking for food.

I had the Siesta Maker naked on a plate with lettuce, rice and beans and it was as much as I could eat. Fantastic and all freshly made. Little wonder this restanurant is so popular. They even sell Mexican beer

If you like Mexican food and can say Machaca taco then your done. This is all you need to know to order here. Machaca!

Fish taco plate with black beans and rice for <$10. They will give you a basket of homemade chips and the best habanero salsa ever.
