One of our daughter's favorites, this was a pleasant, clean, good food place. Semi-fast food. You order and they bring it to you. Our food was good and there was plenty of it. Definitely would recommend.

There was nothing shockingly bad about Lime Fresh, but for a few reasons it is was my least favorite of burrito places in Chapel Hill/Carrboro. For the record, my rankings going from best to worst are Carrburritos, Cosmic Cantina, Chipotle, Armadillo Grill, Qdoba, Lime Fresh.

They didn't put much guacamole in my burrito, and the guac wasn't very fresh or appealing anyway. None of it really seemed very fresh but instead very processed- I agree with an earlier reviewer on the disappointing iceberg lettuce, and the food wasn't even a bargain price like Cosmic.

They say they speak vegetarian, but the veg options are very limited. They basically just take meat out of their main dishes and consider themselves "fluent in vegetarian". I would really appreciate if they were "fluent in vegan" and labeled which items are vegan or could be made vegan- otherwise you have to ask an employee who might not have memorized every ingredient on the menu. It'd also be nice if they could include some fresh or organic vegetables in their menu, or get ingredients locally and ethically sourced like Chipotle strives to do.

Until they make some changes, I won't be back to Lime Fresh.

I have eaten a few Mexican style restaurants both fast and sit down. As for quick service Lime is a above the rest. The unlimited chips and salsa (numerous selections) bar is a nice touch. I had the Classic Quesedas (regular is enough for one person) was cooked perfectly with no burn marks and the cheese, chicken and beans worked well together. The pineapple salsa is a good match if you are looking for a sweet combo. My wife recommends the fish tacos (grilled or fried). The fast and delightful service adds to the experience. It is located on Franklin Street near the UNC campus.

We happened to eat here on a Tuesday when you get tacos, bottomless chips and guacamole as well as a drink for $5. Not crazy about the lime dressing for the salad but the tacos were fantastic.

Up a notch from a fast food Mex (like Moes or qdobe). Order at the counter and the food is brought out to you. Also a salsa bar to take from with a variety of toppings. Fish tacos were very very good chicken tacos were ok. Chicken was somewhat over cooked. But real good value and quick service
