Red salsa that is served is bland with not much flavor. There is a charge to refill the chips. Place was pretty busy for lunch. Staff doesn't wear a uniform they appear to wear whatever which I don't think is not professional. Our waiter was nice but didn't check on us often. Go for lunch and take advantage of the... More

Everyone received a lot of food (we all took leftovers home!), service was prompt and friendly, prices were pretty good and we had lots of chips and salsa at all times. My hubby had the fajitas, I had the vegetarian combo and the kids had tacos. No one complained so that says a lot there!

Save your money go to the store ,buy , and heat it up yourself, don't go there, overpriced! We ordered and they never came to check on the satisfaction of the meal, no refills, salsa out of a jar and old, poor quality

Good for all ages. Has a kids menu with some American food for those that don't like Mexican. Food arrived hot and tasted good.

My wife and I were in the mood for Mexican food and came across this place on the strip. We were not disappointed! The food was delicious, the service was great and the food came out pretty quick. Would definitely eat there again for our next visit! I even got a shirt and will wear it well back home.

We stopped here to try OBX Mexican food and we were not disappointed here. The combo dinners were about $8.95 and you didn't leave hungry, that's for sure. Service was attentive and fast and we really have no complaints at all. We will definitely go back here.

The outside color of the building caught our eye as we first came into Nags Head. Mint was our first place to go out for supper on our vacation. The food was delivered promptly, tasted great and the drink service was quick. Would recommend.

We usually eat fish on the OBX but decided to have Mexican. It was great. The service was quick and the food was excellent. It was the best Taco Salad I have ever had. Please try. You won't be disappointed.
