    Centro's was the perfect stop for Cinco de Mayo! Their salsa is delicious and the service was spectacular! ADAM was the best waiter we have ever had -- if you have him he will not disappoint!

    One of the best places for Saturday brunch in Raleigh. Get there early to score a table, order a Spanish Cava Mimosa, and enjoy some of the best food you'll ever have.

    This place is so good and the family who owns it cares deeply about the quality and authenticity of the food. It's one of our favorite restaurants in Raleigh.

    Since they've just recently updated their specialty drink list, I suggest trying the Refugio or the Otono Espanol. You won't be disappointed!

    While it's kinda pricey @ night, lunch is VERY affordable. Counter service. Soup is AWESOME & $5. Special is choice of taco/gordita/quesedilla, choice of rice/beans/slaw and a small soup for $6.95.

    We may have gone on an off-night but no one in my group was happy with this place. The food was mediocre and there were hidden costs for things like chips and condiments. Very nice server though.

    The soup is insane on a cold night. The margaritas are sweet on a hot night. The fish taco rule on any night.
