We are vegan/gluten free and have challenges finding places to eat when we travel. We were thrilled to find the Fresh Taqueria on Sanibel. This place is best described as flexitarian-they serve all kinds of food including a wide variety of gluten free/vegan. We ate here twice. The food was excellent. The chef is creative and thoughtful. The food is... More

The staff, including the manager were unbelievably rude! I went to pickup my take out order and it was approximately double the price of what I expected. A gratuity had been added without telling me on the phone. I had asked some questions about the menu , including what fish tacos they had. When I asked why I hadn't been... More

Cute, tiny place with indoor/outdoor seating and a bar. Seating time was inaccurate and ended up waiting a bit longer than expected. Food came out relatively quickly once ordered. The portions were a little bit small for the price, but it was yummy. Waitress had to be prompted for more water. Again, food was very good though.

This is not the typical Sanibel restaurant. The decor is funky with a garage sale gift shop attached. But the food is excellent, always very fresh. Primarily Mexican with various tacos, excellent guacamole and chips and a great ( and very long) beer list. Although it seems like the restaurant is short staffed, the staff is very efficient, knowledgeable and... More

The atmosphere is eclectic and relaxing, the food is fresh and inventive and the service is casual. The appetizer of manchego stuffed dates wrapped in bacon with raspberry sauce was amazing.This is a nice change of pace for Sanibel where you are always forced to choose between fine dining with outrageous prices or Dairy Queen and hot dogs. There are... More

Great food in a hard to find location. Worth looking for though. I had chicken enchiladas and my hubby had fish tacos, both were excellent

Well, yum and double-yum! This is an unassuming (sort of dive-ish, some might say dingy) relaxed place that delivers delicious, unpretentious fresh Mexican food, specializing in tacos. We had a table inside. We came on a Tuesday night and started with the salsa sampler (4 different types). Husband had the beer sampler. I had the blackened salmon tacos (did I... More

So terrible. It's like we walked into CHAOS. There were two other tables. There were two ladies (both servers?) and nothing went right. We had to ask for basics (there was no silverware on the table, had to ask again for silverware after we got our meal), had to ask for refills (many times), we didn't get one of our... More

Fresh Taqueria has an eclectic menu that fuses Mexican Spanish and Southern cuisines. Our menu changes frequently depending upon what is available from local farms. We offer many gluten free and vegetarian options on our menu. Our food is prepared fresh daily sourced from local and sustainable sources. We are located in the red building across from suntrust on Periwinkle Way. Our parking lot is the third driveway west of the restaurant (the empty lot with our sign out front).
