Mexican
There is always a story behind every good taco. In 2012 we purchased what used to be a filling station, built in 1960, in the heart of Little Rock. The mission was to take that experience and mold it with inspiration from cantinas in Mexico. We revamped the entire space, so when you enter The Fold you are met with bright colors, vivacious dishes and a staff excited to make your family and friends our family and friends. We crafted a bar menu that pairs perfectly with our Mexican fair, including our award-winning, completely fresh-squeezed margaritas. The patio is newly renovated to provide access to guests all year long, and we are very proud to offer a furry friend patio to our four legged friends. Everything we do here is thoughtfully prepared to ensure our guests enjoy our creations and love being here just as much as we do. We are excited to bring more people into The Fold and we look forward to your visit!

Loved the place! Menu was interesting and creative but food was only ok. Not bad but a little lacking in flavor. Needed more authentic seasoning. I will go back for a second try next time I’m in Little Rock.

One of our favorite spots in Little Rock and a go-to for when friends/family come in town. Atmosphere is fun and welcoming with indoor and outdoor seating options in a retro/repurposed gas station, and staff members are always friendly and upbeat. Food is delicious -- love all the taco options, the burritos and the salads -- and the margaritas hit the spot (lemon rosemary and spiced pear are favorites). Would absolutely recommend The Fold for a relaxed, memorable dining experience.

Not that great. Most likely wouldn’t come back. Not sure what it is but every single time I come here to eat with a reservation or not the hostesses are always rude and act like you’re a bother to them. The food is okay, but nothing to ride home about.

There was a menu item one of the guests wanted, but it was not available until next Monday. Once we ordered, there was not enough taco meat for the AL Pastor tacos. One of the guests at our table had to change her order. Overall, I was not very impressed.

The food really was outstanding. However, they booked our reservation for 4, then called, sent texts that we needed to arrive earlier. ???! We live 45 minutes away, it wasn’t like we could be there in 5 minutes. So service was fair, and the food was fantastic and well presented!!!!!

The Fold is consistently great. Love the food and margaritas. Hoping that they will soon seat a larger capacity now that vaccines are available to everyone. I’m tired of making a reservation to find out when I get there that I am sitting outside in 50 degree weather. No option to choose seating when I made the reservation.

Bison burrito is awesome! Cheese dip was disappointing this time, runny and not much flavor. Salsa and guacamole were very tasty.

The food and service at The Fold is always amazing and their Covid policy makes me feel extremely safe eating there. They have heated the outdoor area with nice heaters and are strict about mask wearing. Support local restaurants. Oh, and try the tamales!! They are the best!

Super staff and the food is fresh and unique. Lots of interesting choices. There is seating outside in a tent with heaters and tables inside. It’s a casual atmosphere. I would make a reservation on weekends.

Have been here twice and have enjoyed the delicious, unique tacos and fresh guacamole both times. Right now they are only offering patio dining. There are heaters, but I would still recommend wearing a coat on winter days.

Dining was cold due to the weather and the new setup due to the pandemic. They could use more portable heaters. Make sure you have a coat you can keep on! The food was great as always. Over the past 8 months I’ve been eating plant based and their menu accommodates that without having to ask the chef to make something special or alter a menu item. Great menu for all eating styles! A definite recommendation.

Always fresh and tasty. They do an exceptional job describing the menu and accommodating dietary needs. One of the few restaurants where I am consistently happy about trying new items and not sticking to my favorites.
