Fred’s is a Mexican Cafe at PCH and Main in Huntington Beach. Weird name but it has been around for years. That usually means the food is pretty good  — and the view!


We were celebrating Julie’s birthday so it was crucial that we began with margaritas and chips with salsa and guacamole.


The Wedge specialty for me was a very tasty chicken taco and cheese enchilada with black beans and rice.  Julie had what would have been my second choice — the Chicken Tostada Salad with lime cilantro vinaigrette. It was piled high with grilled sliced breast and looked like a complete meal!!


It was an enjoyable time in a festive atmosphere in a place close enough to hear the ocean. I even appreciated the old time rock and roll playing on the sound system.

The other thing – I was surprised, however, at the $13.50 fee for 2 hours in the parking  garage!
