Nice find for Mexican Food in Chapel Hill

I had heard some mixed things about La Hacienda, but we decided to try it out for dinner. There were five of us and everyone ordered something different, and everyone enjoyed the food. I ordered carnitas and thought it was very good. The service was a little off, but they were busy and I believe... read more

This place was located across the street from my work. I went there with a bunch of colleagues. They have a lot of items on the menu. They a 1, 2, or 3 items combo for lunch with 1 sides. You can get three items for $7. They also have a lot of entree items on the lunch meal. I... More

Loved this restaurant! Had fantastic food, top-shelf margaritas, and chips and salsa. I will go back here in a second next time I am in the Chapel Hill, Durham area. The staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful. We have children with nut allergies and they are completely safe. Loved it! We were a party of 12 and everyone was thrilled... More

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.

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!
