The typical Mexican lunch and supper combos and menu items. Interesting unique sauce flavors. Good prices, no surprises.

Review covers 2 trips here in the past 6 months. This is the worse mexican food I have ever eaten. Really. Chicken taco was filled with undrained overseasoned chicken and dripped with grease. The beef taco was worse! It had no "mexican" seasoning and tasted like chili w tomatos. Just not good. The fajitas were chicken that had been bought pre-sliced and simply warmed up. I can do better at home and we expected more from them. Chapel Hill location was awesome, years ago.

My sister and brother-in-law took me here for a quick dinner after seeing the opera. This is an unpretentious place with good food, huge portions and very reasonable prices. We each had fajitas, which were huge. You can actually order for two for a small extra charge with the order for one, for which you get extra veggies and tortillas. This would have been a good idea, as none of us could finish our meals. The décor is basic and a lot of folks use the take-out service. While the food is not exactly authentic, it is tasty and plentiful. The free starter tortilla chips are sprinkled with garlic salt, which I did not enjoy but the others did. The salsa verde was great, though!
