Fodor's Expert Review Fresa's

$$ Central Austin, Downtown, and Capitol Area Mexican

It’s hard to think a drive-through could have such high-quality fare, but Fresa’s has built a name for its charcoal grilled chicken al carbon, which is slow roasted over post oak and served with homemade tortillas and sides like Mexican street corn and crispy brussel sprouts out of this trendy Clarksville take on “fast food.” Breakfast tacos, agua frescas, and Stumptown coffee service the early morning crowd, but the family-style lunch and dinner menu is the real signature, with whole or half-chicken orders (choose from achiote and citrus or yucatan spice), accompanied by housemade salsas, corn tortillas, charro beans, and rice. Fresh salads, queso, and guacamole, plus a selection of beer, wine, and margarita kits are available for drive-through or walk-up orders.
