Chip should screen his employees before they start working. He has 2 flunkies pedaling pot out the back door or from that SCION. They are way to cocky about it. They don't care who is in the lobby. I gave one of them the look. To let him (the good looking one) know i was on to what they were doing. He could care less. s
Shame, shame on you chip to let this happen, you are a respected man around town!!

Has the food gotten any better there? I tried it when it first opened and it sucked.
Wondering too

Check out their facebook page. Apparently prices are lower w/chips and salsa included with meals. I assume its because MOES is in N Hartford. Moes has been my favorite mexican place. WHen I first went to Fresh Mex, I expected more of a selection for toppings, like Moes. Unfortunately, it was short on that end. Perhaps that has changed in the past 4 months or so since I have been there. Love Moes Salsa Bar. I used to travel to Syracuse JUST to get Moes and their Queso sauce w/a big bag of chips.

I have eaten there a few times now and all was good. I wouldn't call them better than say Moe's, but right there with them and they are a local company. My one bad point, I went outside to eat, and people were sitting at other tables smoking . Locals , not customers!

I went in there last week and was disgusted at how the people treating each other and the customers the girl had to not know what she was doing I had to actually roll my own burrito then one kid said I could have chips or cookies and the other one said I could only get chips for the meal there's no communication going onI was sick within a half hour eating there I will never go back again

Went there and didn't know where to park... So that's a downfall . Place was completely empty the girl at counter was helpful and nice. Menus are confusing and very limited no healthy options. Tabels and chairs were dirty I asked the same counter girl for a wet rag to clean them witch she did provide to me and said she was sorry . She was makeing are food so I didn't ask her to do it. The thing that got me was she was the only one working and like I said we were the only patrons there. Yet I saw the owner and maybe about six to eight other employes come out of a back room. Witch makes me wonder why the tabels and chairs were dirty? Food was ok not bad but not great . Cost $19 that include two drinks ,chips ,salsa ,burrito ,quesadilla ,taco salad , and a side of sour cream. Not bad on price. All in all has potential but I wouldn't go back. They seem to be just set on being ok instead of a great establishment.

also forgot to add the fact that they were out of beef and shrimp witch limited are options to either chicken or pork. They seemed to be running a drug business or something it seemed with the traffic coming in and out but no one ordering food. Just a honest observation from a former dealer's eyes.
