Zona Fresca is a good Mexican Restaurant. They have a side table with a variety of different condiments to choose from.

Stopped here for lunch while in the area. What a wonderful surprise for a " fast food" establishment. Order at the counter from a wide selection as well as daily specials. Beer available. Should have taken pictures of our burritos and flan!Salsa bar varieties fresh and delicious. Food was excellent. Will definitely return.

It's the kind of meal people stare at and appreciate. The Garden Chicken Salad, with avocados, corn, tomatoes, lettuce and fresh grilled chicken. Plus their dressing is the perfect blend of lemon juice and seasonings. The burritos are great too, and I love their location in downtown Miami when I'm downtown.

The offer Combo plates and street tacos plate. the service it self. and the condiments bar always full and clean. The place runs a bit cool 72 F I'm guessing so if you are a local eat take advantage of the outdoor seating.

I dine here very time I visit Ft. Lauderdale. The food is fresh and fantastic and lots of it too! You can load up with spicy tomatoes and jalapenos at the free salad bar. They even have Mexican beer !!! Great value and very popular with the locals, which is always a good sign.

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.

Thank Leonid Z
