Being a military family we've lived in a lot of places and eaten a lot of Mexican food and until now I wasn't impressed with Durham's offerings.

The menu has a wide range of dishes with plenty of vegetarian options. The Huevos Rancheros are authentic and delicious. The even have a chili relleno omelet that is to die for. Coffee and service was wonderful and you can visit the tortilleria for fresh corn tortillas despues comida.

Best gourmet Mexican food in Durham,NC. Super perfessional/nice waiters and bartender. The corn chips are the best around! I've been there 5 times and I've never had a bad experience or bad food. The location is kind of out of the way but its worth the trek.
