By the time I finished my Casa Frida fajitas, I was mentally composing a review. After a waiter cleared the outside table where I sat because I had my Shih Tzu, I waited 15 minutes before telephoning the restaurant to ask for a check. The man who answered the phone didn't understand English, so I asked in Spanish for the check. The same man who had taken the order slammed the ticket on the table without apology. I asked what he called the salsa (picadillo) that was on the fajita plate; he asked why. "Because it's the only decent thing on the plate," I replied. The fajitas were tough; the guacamole was non descript. The salsa and green chili sauce for tortillas was the most tasteless I've ever encountered, and the tortillas were like cardboard. I sampled Mexican wine that the original waiter touted and found it undrinkable. I opted for the house red wine. The waiter didn't clarify that he could offer three red house wines, and the one I got ($6) was only marginally better than the Mexican one I couldn't drink. (My receipt shows it was cabernet without an indication of its origin.) The bill came to $21.95 before tax; I was charged $15.95 for steak fajitas, though the menu shows them at $12. I can only surmise that Casa Frida once was much better than the experience I had today. Some menu items sound great, but I thought fajitas couldn't be ruined. I was super hungry. I wouldn't consider returning to this place.

My husband is Mexican and it's really hard for him to find an authentic Mexican restaurant in South Florida. Casa Frida has authentic Mexican food and a friendly atmosphere. Every time we go there we're greeted from the moment we walk in the door and the owners will stop by our table to make sure everything is good. I'll definitely recommend!

I love Mexican food, but this the most disappointing experience I ever had. The servants there are really rude, the customer is not being valued. the servants really try to make good money by bringing an expensive bottled water for you when you don't ask for it, by bringing an extra stuff (like guacamole) that is not being ordered. At the end they surprise you with the bill.

The food was very good but the patron was insulting. When I eft a ten percent tip the waiter came back for more. Not nice at all.

i have taken many friends to this small restaurant and have enjoyed every visit. The Owner and his wife are friendly and oversee the quality of all of the food. I am vegetarian and have found many items on the menu to satisfy my appetite and my friends rave about the chicken in red mole. Everyone should visit this place but do make reservations

Waiter was curt and insulting. The succulent pig must have been sucking on something bad because it was out-of-the-can pulled pork at best. Prices over the top when you consider the food quality. Our party of four will not make a second attempt at trying this place.

Excellent authentic Mexican, everything we tried, including desserts, was fabulous. Except the margaritas, which are just disappointing. I believe they only have a beer and wine license, and instead of making that clear, they make the margaritas with something like a wine cooler. So have a beer or a glass of wine and enjoy their excellent mole!
