    Good For Dogs

    First visit, loved that they are dog friendly. They have a menu for the dogs, bring them water and foos in their own individual bowls. The food for humans is not great. We had the Queso Dip and Chips, that was exceptionally delicious. But our main dishes, two Chilaquiles plates and one California Burrito lacked so much flavor and authenticity. Great place to get a meal for your dog, not so much for the humans!

    The staff is friendly. The Food is delicious. Loved the environment. My pup had the steak from the puppy menu. It wasn’t expensive and he received a nice sized portion. He loved it! I definitely recommend.

    It was a fun atmosphere at Fred's and dogs are allowed on the patio. There was spilled water and wet chips beneath our table which we did not want our dogs laying in. There is a dog menu and our dogs had the flank steak. They were given a lot and they enjoyed it! For the human food it was not that good. Not horrible but would not return.

    Relaxing after beach

    After a day at Dog's Beach. This was the place to go. When we got there we were seated in the patio, where our server brought a big bowl of water for our dogs. They handed us our menus. 1 for us and 1 for the dogs. This was a surprise. The fajitas are awesome and our dogs had Chicken and fries served to them in dog bowls. It would equal the price of a kids meal. The services was great and walking through Old Town after made the perfect end to our day.
