Best Mexican Food in Shallotte Area

Having tried all of them, San Felipe is hands down the best Mexican food in our area. I especially like their Fajita Nachos. Generally the service is very friendly and fast. We like the décor and the cleanliness of this restaurant as well.

We have to eat here at least once (usually twice!) when vacationing in Holden Beach! This is my favorite Mexican restaurant that I have eaten at so far! We have eaten here many times over the years and have never been disappointed. Wish we had one at home!

The Service is very good. We were seated promptly and very good chips/salsa was served immediately. The server provided us enough time to review the menu and kept our glasses full. The food was Ok, it was lacking the strong flavors that drives us to eat Mexican food. My carnitas was simple roasted pork, tender but missing the seasoning and... More

I love their food. Service in the restaurant is great. This is definitely the best Mexican place in Shallotte. I would definitely eat in instead of getting to-go orders. Sometimes their phone stays off the hook and you can't get through to them,or you get the wrong food. But I've never had a bad experience eating in the restaurant. Would... More

Good Mexican restaurant. Clean, nice atmosphere. Staff were nice. They did take away my "to go" drink when I went to the restroom. It was nicely replaced.

Ate lunch here and what a pleasant surprise. Food was delicious, server was attentive and the place was super clean. Don't let the strip mall location fool you. Had a couple different versions of fajitas and they were excellent. One included shrimp and couldn't believe the size of them!

San Felipe is our favorite of the Mexican restaurants in the Shallotte area. The food is excellent, appetizingly presented, and the wait staff is friendly and efficient. The food appears to be very fresh. My particular favorite is the Fajita Nachos.
