the first thing I noticed was I was the ONLY person in the restaurant speaking English , the next thing I noticed was that the server had trouble understanding MY English. The food seemed fresh , but it was prepared in a way that I am unaccustomed to in 'American" restaurants. The chicken was served with cuts being made mid... More

Went there on a whim and was glad we did because the food was better than I (we) expected. An empty dining room is usually the tell tale sign of "run" but not in this case. It looks like they do a nice take out business since several people cam in while we were there. Found the Spanish speaking tv... More

Two tacos two enchiladas with rice and beans. All very tasty, enjoyed the chicken but loved the pork taco.... More

Stopped in to pick up some take out food. This was our first time here. The dining area could use some updating, and brightening, as it is somewhat dark. We ordered burritos to go and could see our tortillas being made fresh right after we ordered. The burritos were very large and were served with a side of Pico de... More

This place should be put out of business or run out of town. Horrible dining experience, food was ok at best, certainly nothing I'd crave after, the staff was more concerned with texting on their phones than waiting on us or even bringing the check, which after 10 minutes of waiting I had to get up and ask for. I... More

Southbound on the Parkway...looking for dinner on a Saturday evening. Found El Senor Frog on Tripadvisor and gave it a try. It was awesome! Don't expect the Tex-Mex you find in the big chain restaurants or the tomato and chili cooking found in the American Southwest. Like one of the other reviewers, we have had authentic Mexican food in the... More

If you like mexican food here you go! The salsa is different than most, and tasty. The dessert cake was really good. Not pricey and alot of food.

Very nice restaurant with helpful and friendly staff. I don't eat meat and they are very helpful to make any of their dishes vegetarian. Their mole sauce id the best I have ever had...in Mexico, Texas, or New Jersey. Chips are always fresh and the salsa is just right. The very best Tres Leches is what made us go back... More
