“I expected better”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

With the number of Spanish speakers increasing in the area, I expected better. First, the management of the restaurant needs to spend some money on maintenance. Dirty looking tile ceiling with multiple dysfunctional fans and light fixtures. We figured with poor light you couldn't see the ceiling as well. Rest of the decor is OK for a Mexican joint. I liked the salsa, but the chips were overcooked. Extensive menu. Two kinds of mole. I had tacos al pastor, were OK. Wife had
Carne asada, was tough and stringy. I usually go for seafood at the beach, the next time I feel like Mexican, I will seek out someplace else.

“Ole Mole”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Had a delicious dinner with the coldest of coronas! My dining partner had a wonderful dish -- Burrito Jalisco, tender beef with savory sauce. I always go for chicken mole if on the menu and this did not disappoint AND they had too varieties. Of course I went with that with more chocolate in the sauce. Very good. Only suggestion -- salsa was very good, but the chips could be better.

“Best mexican food on the beach!”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

Iv been coming to the OBX for over 15 years and always come in every year! Love how it's family owned! Not a big fan of chain resteraunts. Service is always fast and friendly our waitress was so friendly and told us great new spots to visit around the banks. Food is wonderful! I recommend the burrito Jalisco the portions are huge and very affordable always a great experience and the jumbo Texas margaritas are the best!
