Good Mexican food, clean establishment. We received a discount for showing our hotel room key card. Price was very reasonable.

The initial service was not... More

I have given this restaurant a second and third chance, but it is the same every time - terrible service. I modify my order a little bit (for example, no beans), and they say no problem. But they get it wrong every time. Then they argue with me about their mistakes. I don't have problems at the other Mexican restaurants... More

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

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.

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
