Although I find the decorations quite hokey, the food is pretty good, and it is large enough to share,...

Happy Hour w/Chips and Salsa 9/8/2006

My trip to San Diego was fun. My boyfriend was on business at the convention center all day. I was wondering around downtown San Diego shopping. The shopping plaza (mall) was busy on the food floor. I was thirsty and needed a snack. I peeked in Freds and it looked fun. It was decorated like a tiki bar. Plus it was happy hour and who can pass up a $2.50 margarita and free chips and salsa on a nice day. Not me! I had 2 drinks and some tortilla chips. They were tasty! I sat at the bar and the bartenders were sweethearts. They noticed my ID was out of state and struck up conversation. They were very interested in East coast. The place wasn't very busy but it was only 4:30 in the afternoon. I didn't order a meal but the menu looked great. They have something called "Kiss my Taco Tuesday". Every Tuesday you can get $2 chicken and $3 steak or shrimp tacos from 4pm to close. Another cool thing I was informed about, Cinco De Fred! The 5th of every month they throw a party and drinks are cheap, $1.50 for a margaritas and cervezas. I cant believe it either! Next time I'm buying the "Kiss my Taco" t shirt! LOL more

good mexican food 9/8/2005

If you didn't know better, or were slovenly drunk, you might think this place was somewhere in the heart of Mexico. In other words, we are talking authentic Mexican cafe, not only when it comes to the food, which is excellent, but also to the general ambiance and overall feel of the place. The staff are exceptionally polite and make sure you are attended to right away. Being right by the beach in the middle of Pacific Beach also helps. There is a lot of fun things to do after you've loaded up on some great Mexican food at Fred's Cafe. more

Good Mexican Food! 8/7/2005

The food here is yummy! They have your typical PB type of food but it tastes better than many places. They have a cool salsa bar. They also have margaritas and beer. It is a fun place to hang out with your friends and meet new people. The atmosphere is very laid back and it is a good place to decompress after work or on a lazy sunday! more

Margaritas All Around! 7/6/2005

Want to feel like a Pacific Beach local? Then you definitly need to visit Fred's! Located on Garnet St; PB's main drag, this small restaruant/bar offers an upbeat and beachy atmosphere. Grab yourself one of their huge burritos for about $4 and one of their famous margaritas, available in regular or strawberry. Feeling brave? Join their 'Tequila Club' and get your photo on the wall! Another special day, "Taco Tuesday" is sure to get your taste buds going without blowing all your cash. Overall, this is an awesome place to dine and drink. It's very popular with the college age crowd, but is suitable for everyone! Enjoy! more
