In a lively Folsom shopping center stands a spacious, welcoming eatery serving nothing short of serious burritos, tacos and tostadas, the staple foods of Mexico. The fun-colored walls and exuberant decorative pieces at Freshmex Express Mexican Grill go hand-in-hand with the Spanish music played in the background—providing an alluring, family-friendly environment. After reviewing the full menu of practically everything Mexican one can crave, the Fajita Burrito ended up on my plate. Prepared right in front of me, it was stuffed with diced chicken, pinto beans and Mexican-style rice, layered with sautéed onions, lettuce and a selection of cheeses, plus fresh guacamole and sour cream. The result? A massive burrito that could have been consumed by three. The famous pico de gallo brought all of the ingredients together, making each bite hearty and succulent. And what would Mexican food be without its counterpart, chips and salsa? The crunchy tortilla chips—offered with an assortment of self-serve salsas (i.e., all-you-can-eat!)—were the last tally needed to add up to a tangible Mexican meal. Turns out, I didn’t have to go very far to enjoy an authentic favorite. Freshmex Express Mexican Grill, 1870 Prairie City Road, Suite 110, Folsom, 916-985-0555.
