Muy Bien!

Fresh tasting authentic Mexican food with attentive service. Very reasonably priced. Have a variety of beef/chicken/pork/vegetarian selections. Seems like a newer place, first time in Brevard and picked it based on location. The food tasted very fresh and homemade. Decor is sort of rustic... read more

Fresh tasting authentic Mexican food with attentive service. Very reasonably priced. Have a variety of beef/chicken/pork/vegetarian selections. Seems like a newer place, first time in Brevard and picked it based on location. The food tasted very fresh and homemade. Decor is sort of rustic Mexican, they could use some music to enhance the ambience.

We have been coming to Brevard for 20+ years, this is the best new addition to Brevard's food scene we can think of. If you enjoy Mexican food, then you have to give Quixote a try. Everything was delicious, from the chips and salsa to the main dishes and margaritas. The sauces are homemade and authentic, from a staff and... More

Quixote offers an alternative to the other I think it 5 or 6 Mexican restaurants in town. They are more upscale and finer Mexican cuisine. If you want something more than a taco or burrito, it is worth a try.

I've eaten there four times, just to give it a chance since I am very dedicated to supporting local business. The food is just not up to par. The last trip in February 2015, I ended up with a huge pile of shredded chicken (at least a pound!) topped with a soup of mole sauce. I'm really not hard to... More

Well, well, well.... Quixote was our place of choice to try this week.... First, let me say that if you are looking for your typical tacos, enchiladas, burritos.... this is not the place. This is as authentic as you will find in the Carolinas. The family is from Mexico and it is as though these were the recipes that they... More

Quixote offers a wonderful experience in Mexican dining! I love the orange shrimp and my husband loves the grilled salmon. Fresh soups, exciting and different salsas, excellent mole sauces and so much more. I love the red wine sangria with lots of fresh fruit. The restaurant is cozy and family owned. The family greet you and constantly checks on you... More

Got here early. I had a veg soup and salad, My husband had a veggie said with salmon. Both were very good. We'll come back again. Not your usual Mexican place. Definitely a cut above.

This is authentic Mexican food, not Tex-Mex. Everything I have eaten there has been excellent.The others in my groups have always enjoyed their meals also. We will always return whenever we want to eat Mexican food.
