Erase any previous ideas of greasy, cheap, quick fast food and take a drive down to Fresa’s, located at 915 North Lamar. Opening only a few months ago, Fresa’s has been capturing the hearts of Austinites by storm. Serving all-natural Mexican style chicken meals, organic breakfast tacos, fresh salads, tortas and much more, these family style meals give you the authentic taste you desire without the typical drive thru calories.
I tried it for the first time this weekend and was surprisingly pleased. As I walk up, I can see the chicken cooking on the grill right through the window. As I smell the charcoal from the chicken, I had a hard time deciding what fresh item to choose from as my mouth was salivating. I finally decide on the veggie torta. Not even knowing what a torta was, as I took my first bite I knew Fresa’s would become a regular spot for my friends and I to come to for either breakfast or lunch.
