Maybe it's unfair to give this place a 3 out of 5 rating. The low rating was due to the service, not the food. But then again, we heard the waitress saying she'd worked there for six years, so if they've been putting up with...More

We decided to have an evening meal at Frescos mainly due to the fact that it was within walking distance of our hotel. It seems to be popular with locals so to me that's always a good start. They have a decent selection of bottled...More

The entire menu is ridiculous priced especially the Dinner menu. They think they are in disney or NYC the way prices are. Don't waste your time or money $$$$$$

Have been for breakfast and dinner. Saw a Facebook post w/the $8 lunch special schedule for the week and went. We both love Carnitas! The pork was plentiful, lean, cooked perfectly, flavored nicely and served with 2 grilled tortillas. It came with yellow rice and...More

My friends love this place but every time I've went I have trouble finding something to eat. They are pricey for what you get and the food never impressed me that much. One time I went and ordered mango fish tacos, which came out small...More

You can never go wrong with a boozy brunch, Ellie! You know our saying...brunch without booze is just a sad, late breakfast. ;) We look forward to serving you the next time you brunch with us here at Frescos!

Thanks so much for bringing your Dad to dine with us for lunch, Jose! The bottomless mimosas are always a big hit. Did you know we offer them every day from open until 2pm for just $12? That's why the dining room gets a little...More
