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

Fiesta Grill is one of the best experiences I have had in a Mexican restaurant. They have great hand made chips, flavorful salsa and i would love a bowl of the sauce they serve on the rice... oh my! They have a huge menu so you truly can get anything you want. Their food is always fresh and the portions... More

My husband and I decided to try this place after seeing all of the great reviews. Honestly, I don't understand where they are coming from. I have never written a negative review of a restaurant before, and I don't think I am especially hard to please, but this was the worst experience I have ever had at any Mexican restaurant.... More

Staff and food excellent. Not only was the food really good but portions are huge! A long wait as it is a very small restaurant but worth it!

Take NC 54 5.3 miles west of Carrboro Plaza to find this little gem. Don't be put off from the outside. This small "hole-in the wall" with fewer than 10 tables has a huge menu, and everything I've tried - from the usual Tex-Mex to stewed tripe (only on weekends) - has been superb. On a recent visit, I enjoyed... More

We ate here on a recent visit to the Chapel Hill area. The drive is further from Chapel Hill but the food was excellent! My daughter ordered their homemade tamale and it was very good! My husband recommends the chile relleno! My son and I both ordered the fajitas and they were very plentiful and fresh!

We had a late lunch/early dinner here on a Saturday and really enjoyed it. It was quiet with only a few tables occupied...not sure we would have enjoyed it as much during peak times as it sounds like it can be a really busy place! We enjoyed the complimentary chips (thick cut and flavorful) and salsa (chunky and tasty) and... More

The long waits are due to popularity and somewhat stark aptmosphere are not the highlights of a trip to Fiesta Grill, the food is. Always consistent , authentic and flavorful from the Flautas , chicken mole to the Shrimp. Local tip, If you want to beat the lines, ask Carlos for a menu , then you can call ahead for... More

Terrific mexican food in a little out of the way spot. We have been there three or four times and ordered different stuff every time. Everything has been tasty, freshly prepared and delicious. The only downside is that seating is very limited, and we have had to get the food to go when there is no room to sit.

A friend of ours, who happens to own the gas station next door to the Fiesta Grill, recommended the Fiesta Grill to us a few years ago and we have never been disappointed. Chewy (nickname) and his wife do a wonderful job of providing a unique Mexican fresh food menu. Everything is made to order. The place is very small... More
