This is the first time I have been to the new location. Very impressive, larger, fresher and cleaner! Quick sit down and the same fast service, perfect for a fast lunch.

We celebrated a birthday with friends. First time to visit and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the dishes and attentiveness of the staff. We didn't wait for service or seating yet it was busy. Would definitely return when in the area.

Used to be the best Mexican food in town - but no more. The food came out too quickly indicating to me that things are prepared ahead of time. Chicken quesadilla had zero flavor, and I mean Zero flavor.

This is one of the few restaurants open after 9pm in Mebane, NC. Service was good. A large menu that included specialties of the house, appetizers, and a la carte.

Went tonight for my husbands birthday. The food and service was great. Not too expensive either... The large beers are very large so be warned. Their seafood is really nice.
