I had an enchilada, burrito, and quesadilla, all were filled with shredded chicken. They were really good as were the beans and rice that came with it. My husband and daughter enjoyed their meal as well.

It sounds like we were winding things down for the night, so I'm glad you and your group could catch us before we closed, Anne Marie! I take it everything was tasty, so I'm glad the speed impressed, too. I'm not sure if you're local to Carolina Beach or just visiting, but I hope you'll come to see us when... More

Stopped in for lunch while we were exploring the Kure Beach, Carolina Beach area. The inside looks like you stepped into Mexico, authentic Mexican music was playing, reminded me of the trips I made to Mexico when I would visit my grandmother in Texas. The service is good and the food plentiful.

My husband ordered a steak meal and didn't care for it at all. I had a chicken fajita meal it was so so. Would not go back just for the fact that i can get better Mexican food at home.

We really wish you two had been more pleased with your meals, and I'm sorry we didn't make a better first impression. If the steak meal and fajitas weren't to your taste, we have plenty of other dishes we'd love to recommend for next time that I'm sure you'd enjoy much more. Hope that's something you'd be up for.

Our family of 5 ate here when on vacation in Carolina Beach. We all left stuffed and with drinks the check was less than $70..They start with the chips and salsa and on request they brought out the salsa verde for a little spicier sauce.
