Every time I have a meal there it is fresh food & delicious. Not your typical Mexican , more flavorful & wonderful. Friendly & helpful waitress, margaritas are delicious too! You can sit outside by the river, beautiful.

This place may look like a hole in the wall but the food is excellent! Saxon means "Hell of a cook" which is very accurate. Love this place!

It's on the Tuckasegee River in Cullowhee. (don't hold me on the spelling). The food is very good but several of our dishes had different twist to them, eg the pico. Not complaining - just different. Service was good for a large party and prompt. I'll go back

Great authentic mexican food and mostly organic! They also have a full bar and dining inside as well as out on the back patio overlooking the Tuckaseegee River. Good people. Prices are good and the menu is full of all sorts of delicious foods! Be aware they they sometimes close early so call first.

The owners of The River Lodge recommended Sazon to us. The margaritas were excellent as well as the guacamole and salsa. I had fish tacos with black beans and my husband had pork fajitas; both were excellent. The wait staff was very friendly. We finished off the meal with Tres Leches cake with strawberries. Yum!

All time favorite is the Tres Maria salad with pulled chicken. The lime cilantro dressing is light, refreshing and the perfect compliment to the white cheese and fresh greens. The Avocado, GF sopes are another must try! Layered on a corn cake, the taste combination is refreshing and satisfying.
