When you eat here, you must get the guac. It was sooooo good. We also got chips and salsa. I liked both salsas (you get a regular salsa and a verde salsa), but the rest of the table only liked the verde salsa. The quesadillas were great and nachos were huge (could be shared)! I got a brisket taco (yum!)... More

I wasn't impressed with this restaurant at all. It's a Mexican restaurant and I ordered 3 types of Mexican beer and they had NONE of them. All three beers were typical of being on the menu at other Mexican restaurants. That was the first disappointment. I ordered tamales. They weren't hot enough and had entirely too much corn meal for... More

First time eating lunch here. What looks like an old gas station converted into a restaurant the place is pretty cool looking. I've seen people eating outside but today it was in the 40's so unless you are a polar bear you eat inside.... the chips and salsa were actually pretty good. The red salsa was good enough to require... More

The Fold has to be one of the most unique restaurants in Little Rock. Even though it's pretty small and there is usually a short wait, it's always been worth it to me. The menu has a wide variety of options to choose from, and the drinks are always fantastic. I highly recommend the guacamole and cheese dip!

After reading all the great reviews I thought they were going to be really special. They were good, but not special. Had tacos, shrimp and beef, liked the shrimp but not wild about the diablo sauce, the beef was tender. Liked the beef tamales more than tacos. The rice that was underneath the tamales was better than the rice on... More

I've been here for dinner and brunch. Both times, the food and cocktails were excellent! Service left a little something to be desired, I believe they need more wait staff. Love getting to pick my chair!

The Fold is a small restaurant with an informal, welcoming atmosphere located in a neighborhood of good restaurants. I've had lunch and dinner both there recently and both were terrific. For lunch I had the veggie burrito, which was so large I took half of it home to eat later. For dinner I ordered the sweet potato kale tacos--to die... More

Old gas station that now is a cool mexican restaurant. There are some outside tables and the inside is bigger than it looks at first. There is parking across the street which helps. The full bar has many favorites like jalepeno margaritas, VIP margaritas etc. The buffalo burrito is spicy so be warned but large and tasty. The tacos are... More
