This used to be our favorite place for Mexican in Lewisville. This is where we would take family and friends when in town. A couple of years ago it changed management or something and the food tasted extremely different. Tried a few times after and it didnt get much better.

We have been going here almost since it opened. The service has always been good. The hot sauce is sometimes a little too hot but it is the best and its addictive. My whole family will hardly go anywhere else. My husband and I both have gotten the beef fajitas and ours have always been tender.
This is one of our favorites. Food is exceptional. Love the hot sauce and the apple pie dessert is the best ever! Our service has always been a+. We eat there often and have never had anything but a great experience.
My husband took us out to eat the other night and we decided to try El Chico. I sure am glad we did! We started out with chips and salsa that they give to each table "" on the house "" and we ordered top shelf queso to go with it. It was wonderful !!! They didn't let us run out of chips , we had…
The restaurant is nice and clean inside and the staff are pleasant. The free chips and salsa is a nice added touch and taste good!. However, the fajita meat is so fake (it really tastes a lot like the fake Fajita meat marinated in those pre-package pouches with chicken or beef in them from Kroger. Definitely too soft to be fresh steak and/or chicken -- taste weird! Not an authentic Mexican restaurant that's for sure!! If you like easy fake Mexican food -- this is your restaurant. It is pricey for what you get. It's sad when you think the food at Rosa's Café down the street taste better than what you got! Anyhow, they are definitely are taking short cuts -- which more than likely the majority of people probably don't even notice if they never had real Mexican food before! However, they can't fool me, because I know what yummy authentic Mexican food should taste like. My suggestion for the managers at Fresco's Mexican Restaurant is to buy fresh meat and marinate it themselves, and have it grilled the authentic Mexican way, or else more people will stop eating there. I will try it again in a couple of months to see if they actually are starting to grill fresh meat -- not using that fake pre-package crap. :-)
Great food and service. Love it when the salsa is extra hot. We go her often, and have never had a problem. Much friendlier than many of the larger chains. My kids love the games they can play while waiting. My only complaint is the choice of music (or lack of ) in the jukebox.
