I do love their food but find that I can get the same quality/ similar items for slightly less at other places.

Recently went to Las Olas while visiting family out in Exeter, New Hampshire and the food there is ten times better than any Mexican restaurant/fast food chain. My cousin's kids recommended we go there for lunch our first day there and at first I wasn't sure what type of restaurant it was because you had to go wait on line... More

They use fresh ingredients. You walk through cafeteria style. I think they do this well for what it is.

Aside from the line being way too long and too slow, this was a breath of fresh air. Most places in New England don't know how to make Mexican food at all. I found the options good and the menu limited. I would go there again.

My family and I have eaten here a few times. Since we don’t have a Chipotle in the area this is a nice option and quite frankly is better. The atmosphere is appropriate for this type of establishment. The service is usually good, however, just recently we had someone making our food that was going through the motions and was... More

This is such a great restaurant. Simple, incredibly fresh, flavorful Mexican (more or less) food, cafeteria-style (in other words, custom-made), and as fast as a lot of fast food places. I have never had a bad meal here. They use chorizo from Kellie Brook Farm, delicious and LOCAL! A great example of how doing simple food VERY WELL can make... More

Just ok, not what I expected. Fast food, order from counter, small place with just a few places to sit.

You get to build your own burrito....taco salad....the ingredients are bountiful.... salsa.......fresh coriander.........everything delicious! I also love to take own a taco bowl of fresh beans....salad........salsa.......cheeses....shredded park. Perfect for the next day as well. If you stay to eat........you can order Mexican beers.......I order a Dos Equis Amber! .............Eat my food...........visit with people around me.....(if in the mood). Wonderful.

What a terrific place in this Academy town! We always say Exeter is like a college town without the beer - and we mean that in the fondest way! If you love fresh Mexican food at a reasonable price, this is the place (and you can get a beer if you;re 21). It's a great place for dinner before a... More

Have been going to LOT's for more than 5 years, the food is great, made to order, and very fast. Some of the staff have been with them long term and they welcome us back with a smile each time. Have not had a bad meal with them! They do take out orders and large party platters.
