Be prepared to wait in line for a table at this cozy, casual spot! A local favorite, small Fiesta Grill serves many take-out and eat-in diners. Once seated, service is efficient and friendly. I enjoyed grilled fish soft tacos, freshly prepared and served with a side of rice and beans. Delicious! Highly recommended.

Stopped by just after 12:00 on a Sunday. No wait at all and quickly shown to a table. Wasn't expecting table service from other reviews but was pleasantly surprised. Extensive menu with a ton of options for all tastes. We shared a barbacoa flour taco and then each had a chicken and a beef soft corn taco. Generous portions of... More

I've never been to a restaurant where I felt so sincerely welcome when I walked in the door. The staff was extraordinarily friendly and gracious. The restaurant is very casual. Menu is extensive- lots of great options. They even have a special menu during Lent. I had the spinach enchilada- oh, so cheesy and spinachy! My husband had a beef... More

Good Mexican food with fast and friendly service. Small, with only about eight tables, so get there early if you do not want to wait in line. They offer beer and wine but no margaritas.

Such great food and kind service. Tables are limited due to local regulations- wish they had more seating. The line stretches out the door anytime after 6pm. They know us by name and by our orders- so sweet. Such a fabulous family run business. They let me practice my Spanish, too, and are very kind and patient!

This is a very casual restaurant where you select your food and beverage by going through a line. The waitstaff brings your food to you shortly thereafter. The food was very good! A variety of selections at very reasonable prices. They do serve alcohol. The dining area is small but they also have a nice outdoor dining area.

Tiny warehouse-like structure but always has great food. Tacos de pescado were the absolute bomb! Don't really understand why this place doesn't upscale, but nevertheless is great!

Moving to Chapel Hill from San Diego, I had my doubts that we'd find our favorite comfort food around these parts. FIESTA GRILLE put that all to rest. The restaurant has only has 9 tables due to septic tank restrictions..but it is well worth the wait (and the drive). Chuey and his wife come from the Southern California area so... More

No frills, just great food and friendly staff. I almost hate to review it because I want to be able to get a table when I want one! It's a little bit out of the way but so worth it.
