    Don't plan on coming without a reservation.

    Food was good. Maybe the server (Ben) had a bad day but he sucked. I may be willing to give this spot one more try.

    Literally best glass of water I've ever had

    1) if you're looking for authentic Mexican, don't eat here 2) the menu has about 7 dishes to choose from, so kiss freedom of choice goodbye 3) you shouldn't need reservations for a Mexican place

    Best margarita ever. Hands down.

    Arrogant Bastard! The beer I mean!

    Sharlene Simon · May 22, 2013

    In true Durham fashion, it’s also got a respectable beer list to go w/ tasty tasty margaritas. W/ house-made chorizo, heartwarming sopas, & authentic dishes for all, it’s one of my favorite Mexican.. Read more · April 9, 2013

    Horrible service, no one helped us. Just stared and made us wait

    Gluten free dining options are abundant. The staff are careful and knowledgeable. They also have an impressive beer menu.

    The Perra Alex is a great drink - excellent and unique combination of flavors.

    Kathy M · June 13, 2012
  • Alaric H.

    Guacamole is insanely yummy. Make sure to tell them to get a damn blender so they can serve frozen margaritas. ;)

    Monday night is taco night! Great bar atmosphere. You should check it out!

    The Hot Guava Margarita is the best margarita I've ever had, and the chile relleno is a fantastic vegetarian option.

    Emily Farrar · April 12, 2012
  • Matt B.

    Start with Sweet Potato Empanadas. They're amazing.

    Matt Brewer · April 11, 2012

    Great beer list and rotating drafts. Beer nerds, be sure to ask for extended beer list.

    The chips and salsa are amazing... For something that's free, you can't get better than this!

    Shazan Jiwa · December 29, 2011

    Order anything with prickly pear in it.

    Rachel Porter · December 23, 2011
  • Nicole M.

    Try the Tres Leche Cake - Topped with Pineapple, light and delicious!

    Nicole Manuel · October 9, 2011
  • Nicole M.

    Try the Chicken Enchiladas - With the BEST mole sauce I've ever had. Delicious.

    Nicole Manuel · October 9, 2011

    lunch is an amazing value - the burritos might be a dollar more than chipotle, but they are just the right size, full of flavor, and come with free chips and salsa (which has the perfect kick to it)

    Shazan Jiwa · August 30, 2011
  • Nicholas B.

    The Restaurant Week Menu here is entirely vegetarian. It's also only $20 for dinner.

    Great food... BUT if you're like me and hate cilantro, be sure and tell them to "hold it". They spread that vile weed over EVERYTHING!!!!

    Tim · April 17, 2011

    The Spicy Guava Margarita is arguable the best margarita ive had in the triangle area

    Shazan Jiwa · March 26, 2011
  • Sarah V.

    Have the Hot Guava - spicy, smoky, slightly sweet. Yum :)

    Sarah V. · November 22, 2010
  • Cris R.

    Don't forget this place for brunch. Had carnitas and a Green Mary in their outdoor seating.

    Cris Rivera · October 24, 2010
  • Walt B.

    Get one of their higher end tequilas straight, with a side of the spicy tomato juice. May sound weird, but it is smooth and delicious. Wonderful combo.

    Walt Barron · May 4, 2010
  • Don C.

    Try the Hot Guava Margarita! The food is great too. Read more

    Tamales are incredible. Pork and hominy stew is best value. Dogfishhead Raison d'être on tap.

    Jeff Stern · January 23, 2010
  • Thaddaeus E.

    Go after 10pm on weeknights for cheap (but still delicious) tacos! Try the nopales asados (grilled cactus).

    Love el Perro Alex!
