The food here was fair, but we paid extra for the top shelf margaritas that were supposed to have fresh lime juice and agave, but they tasted like almost every other strip mall restaurant margaritas.

A pretty typical Mexican restaurant with Mexicanish decorations. Chips and salsa were good. I had a caeser salad with grilled chicken that was very good. Lots of crisp romaine and the chicken was grilled to order. My husband had chiles relleno and said they were awful. Their inhouse-brewd beer was OK, not great. The service was friendly and efficient. I... More

We do go the Fridas when we have a taste for Mexican food. The prices are fair and the portions are average. The food's tasty but not great. I don't know why there's not great Mexican in Napa. The Hispanic population here is huge, there would be no wine industry without them. Why can't someone open a good Mexican restaurant???... More

It was average but I will say that I went there once and then went back to Red Hen. Food was ok and big portions. For a small town is was ok.

I am sorry to say that my first experience at Frieda's was not inspiring, nor will I return. The waitress (Vicky) was quick to give us chips and salsa, as well as other meal items, but was too much in a hurry and brisk that every course, except the guacamole and soup, were incorrect (including our drinks). I had read... More

I came here with friends for dinner and a drink. I ordered the chorizo tacos and a cucumber margarita. The waitress brought it a basket full of chips that weren't your usual corn chips. They were multi colored (red, purple and regular chips). The tacos were pretty flavorful and hefty. The highlight of the meal was the cucumber margarita, made... More

Went here tonight at last minute, it is busy, cozy, friendly and comfortable. Good beer selection and standard fare. Chili rellanos very good, salsa and chips likewise; didn't sample margaritas. Service very fast. Reasonably priced and good value. Decor as you would expect.

Strangely ? In the Napa Valley there are not a lot of outstanding and memorable Mexican eateries This one and Pacifico in Calistoga are the two best. Food is fresh tasting & service is good. Typical entrees like enchiladas , cheese sauces, rice and beans, We, on occasion, stop for lunch when we shop at the Safeway across the street.

As you enter, you have to usually stand in line to order and pay for your food. You then take your drinks and chips (water is available and self service beside the counter) and find your table, and after a few minutes your food is delivered to your table. The food is fresh, on hot plates, and very generous portions.... More
