Off the beaten path of Chapel Hill restaurants

Good Mexican food with fast and friendly service. Small, with only about eight tables, so get there early if you do not want to wait in line. They offer beer and wine but no margaritas.

The Mole is rich and full of flavor. The fresh seafood rivals any place... More

Such great food and kind service. Tables are limited due to local regulations- wish they had more seating. The line stretches out the door anytime after 6pm. They know us by name and by our orders- so sweet. Such a fabulous family run business. They let me practice my Spanish, too, and are very kind and patient!

This is a very casual restaurant where you select your food and beverage by going through a line. The waitstaff brings your food to you shortly thereafter. The food was very good! A variety of selections at very reasonable prices. They do serve alcohol. The dining area is small but they also have a nice outdoor dining area.

Tiny warehouse-like structure but always has great food. Tacos de pescado were the absolute bomb! Don't really understand why this place doesn't upscale, but nevertheless is great!

Moving to Chapel Hill from San Diego, I had my doubts that we'd find our favorite comfort food around these parts. FIESTA GRILLE put that all to rest. The restaurant has only has 9 tables due to septic tank restrictions..but it is well worth the wait (and the drive). Chuey and his wife come from the Southern California area so... More

No frills, just great food and friendly staff. I almost hate to review it because I want to be able to get a table when I want one! It's a little bit out of the way but so worth it.

The Fiesta Grill is the closest restaurant to our home, so we eat there often. Authentic Mexican mom and pop restaurant with great food. It's a cozy place with very friendly staff and ownership, and their food is always delicious! Their Spinach Enchilada with beans and rice is amazing! If you are looking for a spacious dining room with linen... More

Incredible Mexican restaurant. Had the fajitas today and perfect. Quality and plentiful beef, tons of sizzling onion, great guacamole and some of the best rice and beans anywhere. Worst part is trying to decide what to order, their enchiladas mole are also incredible and the arroz con pollo actually makes chicken good. Plus, the service is very friendly and fast.... More

This is one of our favorite local places. The food is always fantastic. I had the Enchiladas Cameron (Shrimp Enchiladas) and they were delicious. They came with rice, refried beans, and guacamole. It was just the right amount of food. My wife had the Fajitas Tres Amigos which had chicken, steak, and shrimp. Her dish was enough food for her... More
