This restaurant is one of the best Mexican place I have been to. I especially liked the big selection of different salsas that are out in a buffet set up. Relaxed and and friendly atmosphere contributes to the experience.

I had their Lime Burrito. It was okay. Even with a discount it is rather expensive. It is my least favorite burrito place in Chapel Hill. I think Carrburrito's and Chipotle are better and seem to offer more for the money.
