Lime Fresh Mexican serves up the usual suspects — nachos, tacos, burritos, fajitas, salads, soups and guacamole. Lime Fresh serves an Americanized version of Mexican fare, so there’s a plethora of choices: Taco shells, for instance, come in corn or flour and hard or soft varieties. Most menu items cost less than $13. A few types of bottled beers are available.
Lime Fresh Mexican operates a national chain of casual eateries. The new location on Okeechobee Boulevard includes a large dining room and a few tables outside. You order at the counter, then serve yourself from the salsa bar and wait for your tacos and burritos to arrive. Lime Fresh also has locations on Northlake Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens and on State Road 7 west of Boca Raton.
OUR FAVORITE FOOD/PRICE
The fresh tortilla chips were excellent, and we liked the fish tacos (one for $3.50 or three for $7.49).
REASON TO GO
Quick service and affordable prices.
Friendly. This location opened in March, and servers were out in force when we stopped by for a Saturday-night dinner.
Moderate. The restaurant was crowded during our visit, but we could carry on a conversation.
Yes. The atmosphere is casual, choices are plentiful and prices are modest.
