I went here while traveling to Raleigh after reading it was top rated. I wasn't disappointed. The food was super flavorful. I will point out that there was no kids menu. That is always an issue for me as my 9 year old can't eat an adult sized entree.

We've been to this place a couple of times. I love the quirky decor inside and out. You can either be seated indoors but outside is nice also. Service is good and the waitress took time explaining menu items. We went for lunch each time so the place was quiet. Everything was fresh and tasty. Prices very reasonable. Will definitely... More

This local restaurant was started by Fernando Salamanca in 2011. Fernando has grown the restaurant to 4 locations in these few years and rightly so. Delicious modern Mexican food, beautiful, friendly atmosphere. Can't go wrong! #shoplocal
