    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)

    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

    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

    The food isn't seasoned that great. It's all bland. 😕 The pernil only had a tiny distinct taste of cloves(no-no), it was costly, veggies were mushy, lights too dim, and pretty sure the vegan is not

    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.

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

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

    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!!!!

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

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

    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!

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

    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.
