Super nice service and great unique foods. Taco tuesdays and Burrito Thursdays are the best. Great specials and good cheese dip. We atre here a couple of times during our trip and both times the food was great.

Too liquidity and terrible overall taste...I figured I try this to alternate between Chipotle and Tijuana flats, but no thanks....This didnt help that my particular location had an employee that was completely rude..Honestly, I dont even care much for the attitude or employee being rude, just fix the damn bowl..it was gross

Our 6 year old grandson likes the kids meal with chicken nuggets, taco chips, apple juice & M&M's. The 'salsa bar' is unique and gives you lots of options to try. It was fun (and funny) to read about how this restaurant began. We are from Illinois so this is a "must" to do each time we visit NC family!

A great stop for healthy, fresh Tex-Mex food! Eat there or take out it a great choice for tacos , tostadas & lots of sauces to choose from to spice up your meal.

This is a great place for couples or bigger groups. the outdoor dining, although overlooking a parking lot is still comfortable and nice. The food is great and varied and they have specials several times per week. You can make this a quick stop or linger for an hour or more.

i have used the holly springs, cary parkway and O'Kelly Chapel locations over the last few years. the cary parkway location was the first i ran across and still my favorite. they really cater to the health food crowd, offering whole wheat tortillas, vegetarian options, etc. their best feature is the hot sauce bar. i usually get 5 or 6...

Had read reviews here and took them to heart. Went to restaurant after a movie. This food IMO is by far worse than drive thru fast food Mexican. Tasteless chicken and not much of it in the Blackened chicken burrito. I also got a tasteless enchilada and lukewarm beans and rice [ can pick this OR chips].Wife's quesadilla and taco... More

I enjoy eating at TF, but my spouse does not care for the food. The portions are ample and the service has always been good. The salsa bar has always been well stocked with plenty of flavor options. It is reasonably priced with quick service.
