The chicken burrito was a soggy mess. It oozed refried beans and contained little chicken. This is a no frills place... the sign was by far the most exciting part of my meal.

We stopped in for a snack suing the mid-day and had the BEST guacamole and chips! The owners are sweet and friendly.

Armadillo is legend with Carrboro locals and UNC students. Great texmex food in a cool atmosphere at a reasonable price. A good selection of cold beers. The food is always made fresh and doesn't disappoint.

Great food in a friendly environment. A little pricey for the type of food but I would go back. Food has great flavor. If you like Tex-Mex, you'll be right at home at Armadillo Grill.
