We once lived in El Paso Tx. Went to Mexico often for dinner. Who knew there is a little bit of Mexico in N.C. Great service and wonderful food. The green chili enchiladas were very tasty. The chile rellenos were huge. Priced right too. Clean, relaxing atmosphere. A pleasant surprise while on our vacation here.

Super friendly and efficient staff serves up a great meal. Pick your own salsas at the bar and add the heat that suits you. Not a beautiful building but terrific food makes it a great stop.

Living in Florida we have many Mexican restaurants and also after several trips to Mexico this is absolutely the best Mexican food I've ever had.
I had Fijitas with steak, shrimp, chicken and chorizo, the best Guacamole ever and refried beans that weren't ground into a mash.
The waiter was also the newest generation owner, a very personable 19 year old taking over for Dad. Mature beyond his years.
I never would have expected to find the best Mexican restaurant ever in North Carolina but I shouldn't be too surprised since I wrote about an excellent one in Asheville last year.
We are here for 4 days so we will return before we leave.

By far THE best mexican food I ever had! We've been all over the country and in Mexico and this place exceeds them all. The guacamole is better than mine;( ! The young manager/owner is personable and professional and is carrying on his Dad's legacy proudly.
