Fresa's Chicken Al Carbon
Fresa’s Chicken al Carbon in Austin prides itself not only on its modern take on the classic Mexican chicken al carbon, but also providing a friendly, casual atmosphere for customers to enjoy their heady Mexican dishes. The white-brick façade is bedecked with festive pastel yellows and blues, redolent of Mexican Day of the Dead sugar skulls. Walk up to the takeout window or enjoy sit-down service in the indoor dining area or the dog-friendly outdoor patio; all three tout the same menu, which is separated into wood-grilled meals, tacos, bowls, veggies, salads, wings, and selections of guacs and quesadillas. Even if you didn’t come to Fresa’s for any particular occasion, the signature Yucatan spice chicken, served with fluffy, piping hot white rice, moist black beans, grilled onion, jalapeno, lime, salsa, and pudgy corn tortillas, will have you partying like it’s spring break in Cancun all over again, so do yourself a favor and join the cocktail train. Sip on a house margarita or rose sangria: all the buzz, without any (or most) of the regrets.
