“Terrific Experience”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

My family and I visited for the first time in February. The staff were so helpful and friendly explaining the menu and making suggestions. The food was great - the salsa bar was awesome! For dessert, the lime pie was amazing. And our server was incredible friendly and helpful. A great experience.

“Fun atmosphere for going out with friends”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

Eight of us went there on a Friday night. You order individually so there no issue with separate checks. They have a salsa bar and big selection of bottled sauces. Our "high spice level" Indian friend found sauces she liked while I liked their southwest salsa. They have beer, margaritas and soft drinks, some with free refills. The staff is attentive at keeping tables clean.

Only negative was that some meals in bowls seemed skimpy on the meat. Consensus of the group was that Chipotle has more food but I think the atmosphere of Fresco was nicer to share a meal with friends.

Very fresh and delicious. The burritos are huge so my husband and I always split one and it's more than enough for the both of us. Prices are great too. The salsa bar is a bonus. Love this place

“Excellent food”
Reviewed 10 December 2013 via mobile

If you want freshness. This is the place to go. The salsa bar was great. Their chips was so freshly made you can smell them tortilla chips as you walk in the restaurant. The atmosphere was relaxing and a bit hippy. They keep the place neat and clean as well.

“Good Fish Tacos”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

Abundance of fresh salsas. Fish tacos are really good. Music is way too loud, even sitting on the patio!
