Charcoal Grilled Chicken Heaven!
Fresa's Chicken al Carbon is an Austin-owned drive-thru restaurant serving charcoal grilled, locally grown chickens, freshly prepared tortas, salads, sides, home-made ice creams, aguas frescas and choice beer & wine. The family-style meals feature the highest quality pasture raised birds from Vital Farms. Marinated in achiote and freshly squeezed citrus or fresh oregano & cracked pepper, their chicken is grilled slow over hardwood charcoal and served with housemade tortillas, rice, beans, and fresh salsas. Don't leave without an order of Cajeta Churros for dessert!!

Coldbrew Coffee and Breakfast Tacos
Fresa's is a fantastic (and little-known) spot for a quick breakfast. You will know you've found the right place by the neon chicken sign out front. It's a design friendly and aesthetically pleasing drive-through, painted in bright turquoise and pink, with a walk up counter and a couple of stools out front. Serving Stumptown cold-brew coffee, breakfast tacos (try the Tricky or the one with Lambert's brisket) and warm churros with carmel dipping sauce. For lunch and dinner you can pick up a whole or half rotisserie chicken meal, making it a quick stop to grab food on the go, whether you are taking it home or to a picnic at Zilker Park.
