Fun environment, friendly service and spectacular food. While known for their tacos, I had a mole dish and LOVED every bite, wanting to lick the plate!

Very nice space, cozy. Portion to price ratio is very good. Service is on the slow side. The flavor of the food was good, we had the nachos and the 4 tacos, but the meat in both were on the colder side.More

Place was decent. I was probably underwhelmed given the high reviews. The mezcal based drinks didn't really make great cocktails, and while the food was decent (tacos were good), it was a bit overpiced.

While we tried to stick to Guatemalan food on our trip, we were drawn to Fridas immediately when we walked by. We were not disappointed. The food and the service were great and the food was well priced. My husband loved los tacos de pulpo.

Ate here on Christmas Eve. The food was great, reasonably priced and there was a great atmosphere. Great spot for dinner or drinks with awesome live music.

We ate here and the food was very good, the place is busy, you don’t need to book just go in. The music is loud and the atmosphere is nice.
