My coworkers and I were going to go to a different Mexican restaurant in Exeter but it looked busy so we kept driving and found this place. The line was longer than I care for but it wasn't too bad - probably less than a 10 minute wait. The style was kinda like Qdoba where they assemble the food in... More

I've been there twice and we had the exact same [bad] experience both times. Both times were slightly off-peak (3pm and 5pm respectively). Whoever works the first station where they take the original order has the absolute worst attitude. The type where they act like they are doing you a favor by serving you. I've had a different person each... More

Sit down fast food restaurant with great employees! Several options and very affordable! Their tamales are a quick yummy bite.

I do love their food but find that I can get the same quality/ similar items for slightly less at other places.

Recently went to Las Olas while visiting family out in Exeter, New Hampshire and the food there is ten times better than any Mexican restaurant/fast food chain. My cousin's kids recommended we go there for lunch our first day there and at first I wasn't sure what type of restaurant it was because you had to go wait on line... More

They use fresh ingredients. You walk through cafeteria style. I think they do this well for what it is.

Aside from the line being way too long and too slow, this was a breath of fresh air. Most places in New England don't know how to make Mexican food at all. I found the options good and the menu limited. I would go there again.

My family and I have eaten here a few times. Since we don’t have a Chipotle in the area this is a nice option and quite frankly is better. The atmosphere is appropriate for this type of establishment. The service is usually good, however, just recently we had someone making our food that was going through the motions and was... More

This is such a great restaurant. Simple, incredibly fresh, flavorful Mexican (more or less) food, cafeteria-style (in other words, custom-made), and as fast as a lot of fast food places. I have never had a bad meal here. They use chorizo from Kellie Brook Farm, delicious and LOCAL! A great example of how doing simple food VERY WELL can make... More

Just ok, not what I expected. Fast food, order from counter, small place with just a few places to sit.
