“Z taco”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

I ordered the z nachos with shrimp. They forgot the shrimp so I had to go ask for them. Received two fried and chopped shrimp in a cup. I paid extra for this?! Taco sauce costs an additional $.54 per tablespoon. Cheese was unmelted. Mediocre. ..

“Great atmosphere, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Came across this while walking downtown Pensacola. 4 old Airstream trailers set up around a very nice seating area. They have asian, BBQ, Gouda cheese items and a taco trailer. I went with a gouda cheese/Italian sausage melt. The sandwich was $7 and I felt it was probably worth $4 or $5. But it was delicious. My wife had the tacos and really enjoyed them and felt that they were a good value. While the food was good but not great, it was a nice area to sit and relax on a warm summer night. They play music over speakers and have party lights run through the palm trees, they even had some fans to keep the air moving. Overall, we enjoyed it.

“A nice place to get a quick lunch.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

Was working in Pensacola for a few days and happened to take a run down Palafox my first night and noticed the Airstream trailer outdoor restaurants. I had lunch here one afternoon. I chose the Shotgun BBQ. The food service was quick, and the barbecue was good. I don't know what the other food trucks were like, but I would suggest this place for a nice place to eat outside.

“Great atmosphere, food is mehhhhhhh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

The open air dining at Al Fresco is a really nice spot to sit and chill, perhaps have a meal and people watch. I've been to a few of the food trucks down there and while not my favorite meal, it's a clean, lovely environment for family and tourists who want to come downtown and enjoy a bite before perhaps a Ball game at the stadium or if you want to do a restaurant/pub crawl down the streets of Palafox Pl. all the way to the pier to see the water. Nice spot.

“not impressed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

The food is kind of bland, and breading fell off of my chicken.The noodles taste like water. Overpriced. I walked over there for lunch because the menu online sounded good, Should have gone to Gouda Stuff, that one is much better.
