Do not come here if you are in a hurry. This place has the best food of the comparable places nearby, but every time we go eat its a 90 + minute event! Even just to get a drink it takes forever. Not sure where the breakdown occurs, but Mexican food is supposed to be fast!!! :) Food is delish,... More

Good Mexican food, and a lot of it, you won't go hungry. $1.00 beer night and a couple of dinners for short money. Clean restaurant, quick and fresh food well prepared.

One of the area's better Mexican restaurants. Foods are consistently well prepared, the ingredients are fresh and the staff is friendly and attentive. The guacamole prepared at table side is treat for the eyes and the taste sensation. The menu has large selection of both traditional and Tex-Mex dishes . A great many Spanish speaking and English speaking people can... More

I have eaten in a lot of Mexican restaurants here in NC but I can tell you this is the best. I have not had food this good since I moved from Texas. The franchise Mexican restaurants can't hold a candle to this one. Try it out!

Let me start by saying this is NOT Tex-Mex. The food is more traditional Mexican Food with lot's of fresh vegetables and good sauces. The service is friendly and fast. The selection is varied with many different items to choose from. If you like Guacamole, Try Guacamole at the Table which is made at your table with two avocados and... More

Out of all the Mexican restaurants around the Clayton area, I would rate this one the best. Their menu is not your average menu that you'll see at the majority of Mexican restaurants. They have some unique dishes that are good. My husband likes to get the fish tacos. I like the chicken enchiladas and the beef fajitas.

After a previously un favorable review because of service, we decided to return and try it again. The food was very good. Hot, quickly served to our table. The basic soft shell taco, beef burrito, rice and beans were very good, nothing outstanding, but very good. Portion quantities were good. The chips and salsa before the meal was excellent, fresh...

New to the area, we had a coupon and decided to check this place out. It was a sort of mid-afternoon "lupper" (that's a cross between lunch and supper), so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. I had the carne asada; hubby had a seafood dish. They were very nicely presented and garnished, and the food was quite... More
