A friend and I visited Monterrey on our first night in Chapel Hill. We both love Mexican food, but we were truly surprised at the variety of dishes on the menu and how good the food was! This was the best Mexican food I've ever eaten. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

We stopped in here around 9 pm on a Saturday night and were surprised that there were at least 5 tables filled, with more couples that came in after us. Most Mexican restaurants I've been to have extremely fast service - this one was a bit slower, though not slow by any stretch. Our server was efficient but not very... More

The waitstaff was very friendly, but got our drink order mixed up. Margarita instead of daquiri, beer in a can rather than from the tap. The waitress was very quick to make things right. I had the quesadillas sincronizada which was very good. My son had a dish with cactus, which was tasty but the cactus seemed overcooked and overloaded... More

Good food, a lot for the price. Service is good, fast and friendly. Chips and salsa are ok. I wish they had a burrito in their Menu that was a plain burrito and not "bathed" in white cheese sauce. The options we had were satisfying.

Best fajitas. Great Salsa. Good price on kids meals that includes drinks. Really yummy queso too. Prices are very good for the quantity.

Your typical Americanized Mexican restaurant food is good but not anything different or outstanding. We had a party of nine and the waiter was a little flustered but it was okay but not a fabulous experience. Have been there before with smaller parties and had a better experience.

We had a great late dinner here. The fiesta nachos were great! My friend's burritos del mar were also good. They served my husband chicken instead of beef in his chimichangas, but he enjoyed it.

Nice atmosphere, fast friendly service. We ordered our food and barely ate some of the chips and dip and the waitress was bringing our food out.

Our daughter and her roommate suggested eating here after morning worship service. Both had been and found the food delicious and fresh. They were right! My husband and I had the lunch size shrimp chimichanga. Our daughter had the chicken chimichanga and her roomie the enchiladas supreme. Everyone loved their choices. We also had the chunky guacamole which was good... More

Popular Mexican restaurant in Chapel Hill offering standard Mexican fare. Food is watered down version of authentic Mexican. Portions are generous for the price. Skip the chips and packaged salsa. Service is courteous but basic.
