Stopped in to grab a quick couple of tacos. They were quite busy when I got there. I was seated quickly, provided chips and salsa and left to deliberate the menu. I had to flag a waiter down to place my order, but was amazed at how quickly I received my order: two chicken tacos, rice & beans. The tacos... More

The service is friendly and fast. Food is good standard Mexican. Not huge portions. Salsa tastes canned and chips were almost burned. Margaritas good but very small for $5. No bar to sit at not good for us road warriors.

Our family has gone to this restaurant for years and have never found better Mexican food anywhere else in the Triangle. Our family of 4 eats for $25-45 each time and we love their fast service whether we eat in or take out. My favorites are the spicy Burrito al a Croqueta or Chori Pollo while my wife prefers their...

Fiesta Mexicana is hands-down the best mexican restaurant I've ever been to. The staff is great and their food is rockin'. I love their fajita burritos or literally anything they'll put in front of me. They have a few locations and I've been to 3 of them, all fantastic.

The best chilies poblanos we have found in the area but the burrito primeriva with extra chorizo is pushing my taste buds. We keep coming back! On Thursday & Saturday they have margaritas especial which are not that cheap but they ARE good. The staff is very efficient and if you take the time to get to know them, they... More

A friend recommended and we were quite impressed. Great value and quick service for lunch! Broad menu, which should please all. I had the fish tacos and they were the best I've ever had. Would come again when we are in North Carolina!!!

Family place with great/friendly/prompt service. These guys really hustle! Most important, the food is great Tex Mex. Our favorites are chilies poblanos and burrito primavera. Thursday and Saturday are margarita "special" nites - not that $3.99 is special but we don't care for the "top-shelf" hype and we like theirs. They make the effort to remember you.

The food here is average Mexican, Tex-Mex. The biggest negative that I would have is that they use too much salt in their beef dishes. The excess salt has been noticeable more than once. The service has always been exceptional (as in good exceptional)! They usually have a margarita special - but don't bother, I have never had one there... More
