Stopped for dinner and was seated quickly. I like the salsa and thought it was very good. The food was tasty and the prices were good. The service was a little slack. The server was more interested in talking to friends at another table. I might stop in again the next time I am in town.

We lived in NM for a long time and I really missed the Tex-Mex and Mexican food you can get in NM (my favorite being chile relleno) when we move to North Carolina. We live close to La Hacienda, but I had never tried the restaurant until recently for a dinner with few friends. Everyone at the table (total 12-14... More

Our Sheraton hotel let us down for lunch, so we hurriedly ran into this restaurant on a Saturday afternoon for a quick vegan meal before a wedding. Not only was the food wonderful, but the service was fast and the bill was cheap! We were pleasantly surprised at this gem.

Lots of seating, good service, big menu, good food and margaritas! Especially like their chipotle shrimp. Seating inside and out.

When I visit other towns, I seek out Mexican restaurants to compare their food with my favorite here at home. This is the first time that I've found a place that makes chimichangas even close to as tasty as the ones at Campestre. The building is surprisingly large inside, fairly typical for a Mexican restaurant, and very clean. The waiter... More

I'm glad I didn't read the reviews before eating here---they would've scared me away. My husband and I (and three teen girls) were visiting our son in Chapel Hill, and he always likes to take us out to a place we "don't have at home." My son always does an excellent job of selecting places we'll like, and La Hacienda... More

It's a bit divey but some of the food (especially vegetarian entrees) was quite good, so it balanced out. Wait for a coupon and then go!

Delicious food, carefully prepared and a cut above the usual. I love the Camarones al Mojo de Ajo. Sometime has a great mariachi band. Service is EXCELLENT.

Went to La Hacienda with friends to have a nice dinner after work. All started out ok. We had a beer and ate our chips and salsa while waiting for our meal. The resturant was empty, only about two other tables had people at them. This should have told us something. Our waiter was attentive to our needs. Our food... More

Took my mom here for lunch today, and won't be going back. Imagine V8 with a ground up onion and you have the salsa. My mom's salad was watery and, while I ordered the chicken enchiladas, I was served beef instead. It took so long to get those, I just decided to eat them. I was able to get one... More
