Best Mexican Food in 3 Counties

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.

I went to this restaurant located in the middle of nowhere expecting to find a nice Mexican restaurant but I dislike everything about it. Just terrible!

The Fiesta Grille is a small, nondescript restaurant basically in the middle of nowhere near Carrboro on 54. It took over two years of driving past to finally stop in. Now we're sad that it took us this long to give it a try. We arrived around 8:15 on a Friday night to give time for the crowd to thin... More

Great food, packed generally, simple, down to earth... Good for take away.. Not for a special occasion... (I am not an expert in Mexican cuisine and don't know "authentic" Mexican cuisine..so take this review with a grain of salt).

When my husband and I arrived we thought maybe it wasn't the place to go because of the lack of cars, but we were just the first to arrive and they do a huge amount of take out orders...ever had crab enchiladas? Oh, now I have...excellent, but let's start with the... More

This Mexican food is the best around. My sister lived in Mexico City for over 10 years and she gives it two thumbs up. Very few places around use fresh spinach in their enchiladas, but Fiesta Grill does. Other ingredients are authentic, too. The place is small, so you might have to wait for a table during busy times, but... More

We looked this place up when we were in town based on the reviews we saw on here. From the outside it doesn't look like much and the seating area isn't very large and can get crowded with locals. The staff however was very friendly we were greeted with a smile and when seated our server went over the menu... More
