Fresa’s on South First isn’t just a carbon copy of the original drive-thru on North Lamar - this one has much more room, a big patio, and an expanded menu (including more entrees and margaritas). In other words: you can now have that amazing chicken (and queso, tacos, churros, and ice cream), while also having a real restaurant experience. But don’t worry, if your favorite place to eat Fresa’s will always be your couch, there’s a dedicated takeout window and parking for that, too.
