Fun atmosphere

A great place to get mojitos and hang out with friends. The salsa is flavorful and abundant with chips while you wait for your dinner. Don't forget to get a picture of you and your girlfriends with the Dos Equis cut-out guy.

Manager could care less about your business. I went there with my family of five and ordered two kids meal. I asked to have my child's drink since she was drinking water and I was paying for the kids meal. I was first told it had to be put in a kids cup to which I said no problem. However,... More

Service was quick and responsive, facilities were very clean, and the menu was vast. Upon ordering the fajitas for one....when received, I had to ask if the order was for one or two... More

I had heard some mixed things about La Hacienda, but we decided to try it out for dinner. There were five of us and everyone ordered something different, and everyone enjoyed the food. I ordered carnitas and thought it was very good. The service was a little off, but they were busy and I believe they were doing their best.... More

Loved this restaurant! Had fantastic food, top-shelf margaritas, and chips and salsa. I will go back here in a second next time I am in the Chapel Hill, Durham area. The staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful. We have children with nut allergies and they are completely safe. Loved it! We were a party of 12 and everyone was thrilled... More

Stopped for dinner and was seated quickly. I like the salsa and thought it was very good. The food was tasty and the prices were good. The service was a little slack. The server was more interested in talking to friends at another table. I might stop in again the next time I am in town.

We lived in NM for a long time and I really missed the Tex-Mex and Mexican food you can get in NM (my favorite being chile relleno) when we move to North Carolina. We live close to La Hacienda, but I had never tried the restaurant until recently for a dinner with few friends. Everyone at the table (total 12-14... More

Our Sheraton hotel let us down for lunch, so we hurriedly ran into this restaurant on a Saturday afternoon for a quick vegan meal before a wedding. Not only was the food wonderful, but the service was fast and the bill was cheap! We were pleasantly surprised at this gem.
