This is not one of the best or nicest Mexican restaurants in Durham . I would not choose this one again . The same dishes we have ordered at other Mexican restaurants were subpar here . My dish was average to say the least and the server got my order wrong . Two of our guests did not like their... More

Love this place. Great people, great service, great food. Very reliable and delicious mexican restaurant. Jose, the owner, personally waited on us and he was just so friendly and funny and humble, he made us feel right at home. My main course was the steak fajitas. There was plenty of steak along with the typical yellow peppers, red peppers, onions,... More

The margarita's were good but the salsa dip was rather bland and disappointing. The soft tacos were good, the service was also good.

If you order the coctel de camarones, you will not be disappointed! There are other items that range from good to quite good, but the shrimp cocktail is topnotch. It's fresh, cold, and loaded with good-sized shrimp, plenty of avocado, and so forth. I have ordered the same dish at around a dozen local Mexican restaurants over the past couple... More

We were a little reluctant to dine here. The parking lot was almost empty at dinner time on a Saturday. Glad we decided to go in. The food was delicious and service was great. The portions were well beyond our expectations. We have found a new place to eat in Chapel Hill that has a warm inviting atmosphere that is... More

This place is near the area I work in. I went in for lunch during the week. The food was mediocre at best. The service was just okay. I had requested no onions with my order and when my food was brought out it was smothered in onions. By the time the server got my food back to me the... More

Good Mexican food, clean establishment. We received a discount for showing our hotel room key card. Price was very reasonable.

Housed in one of the ugliest restaurant structures I have ever seen (initially I refused to enter the parking lot and seeing another placed called 'Cherry Pie" - a lovely building we went there, leaving when we found it to be an adult superstore- note old saw about books and covers) we tried it anyway. The initial service was not... More

I have given this restaurant a second and third chance, but it is the same every time - terrible service. I modify my order a little bit (for example, no beans), and they say no problem. But they get it wrong every time. Then they argue with me about their mistakes. I don't have problems at the other Mexican restaurants... More

Manager could care less about your business. I went there with my family of five and ordered two kids meal. I asked to have my child's drink since she was drinking water and I was paying for the kids meal. I was first told it had to be put in a kids cup to which I said no problem. However,... More
