“Mexican on the run”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Typical Mexican-American restaurant. Menu is ''dido'' of others seen in Anythown, USA. Salsa and chips pretty good... home made no doubt.

“Fine Mexican Resturant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Our family of 7 stopped in to eat while on our way to Holden Beach. The resturant was full of customers yet we still had excellent service. All the waiters and waitress were buisy waiting on tables. None of that standing around talking you might see at other places. All of us got something different off the menu. Everyone said their food tasted excellent and the service was great. Price was reasonable. We will return soon. Charlie and Bonnie

“Last Resort Mexican”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

I could give it a full thumbs up for the new outdoor patio seating if they didn't allow smoking out there. As for the food.....very mediocre Mexican. Although I didn't have one, my friend said the margarita was mostly sugar and ice. My meal was a shrimp and veggie w/ rice. Shrimp were pretty good, veggies were over cooked and rice was too salty/buttery. I wouldn't personally choose to eat there but if dragged there by friends I would go back mostly for the socializing not for the food.
