The place looks abandoned and nobody is around. Service is an ok 2 stars. Food is sort of bland. It is a quick in and out kind of thing. I came and we spent about 35 minutes for a family of 5. Good place if...More

We went here for lunch but it did not appear to be open. There were no signs with restaurant hours. No sign saying it is currently closed. Not sure what the deal is with this place.

Went on a Wednesday night with my wife and mom. First off, the parking is very limited and difficult. It took about 5 minutes to get a spot and maneuver into it. Oh well, not too big a deal, but others were equally challenged. That...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).
