SoCal Mex in the South !

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... read 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

We've been eating at Fiesta Grill for many years, at times once a week or more. It's very small and not fancy, but the food is outstanding! Love the spinach enchiladas, fajitas tres amigos, steak and/or chicken al carbon, and we always get a chile relleno on the side. In fact, I've not had anything I didn't like. The people... More

We're always on the lookout to try new Mexican restaurants as we discover them. We discovered Fiesta Grill on a web search and decided to try it out. We are pretty picky about our Mexican food, a lot of the local Mexican restaurants have decent food, but it's harder to find great food. The Fiesta Grill has great food! We... More

We were in Chapel Hill visiting friends, and they took us here for lunch. It is small and definitely does not have a lot pizzazz as far as atmosphere, but the food (and isn't that why we went?) was amazing! From the freshly made in house chips and salsa, to the guacamole, to the tender carnitas and the delicious enchiladas... More

This is a tiny, very basic place on Hwy 54 about 5 miles from Carrboro. It's not much on atmosphere but doesn't need it. Go for the fabulous, fresh, flavorful food. I'm especially partial to the pork tamales and the chile relleno. I've never had anything that wasn't delicious.
