You might pass right by this Mexican restaurant, don't!
When my husband and I arrived we thought maybe it wasn't the place to go because of the lack of cars, but we were just the first to arrive and they do a huge amount of take out orders...ever had crab enchiladas?
Oh, now I have...excellent, but let's start with the homemade chips and salsa. Just right! They brought a mild salsa out for our 18 month old grand daughter. She loved it with the chips! Back to the entree...my enchiladas came with tasty rice and avocado slices. My husband had a delicious meal of shrimp fajitas. Perfectly cooked shrimp. Then we took home some authentic pork tamales which were excellent!
Oh yes, we certainly enjoyed our meals!

“Great food, friendly service”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

This Mexican food is the best around. My sister lived in Mexico City for over 10 years and she gives it two thumbs up. Very few places around use fresh spinach in their enchiladas, but Fiesta Grill does. Other ingredients are authentic, too. The place is small, so you might have to wait for a table during busy times, but they do a great take-out business. Highly recommended!

“Love this place”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

We looked this place up when we were in town based on the reviews we saw on here. From the outside it doesn't look like much and the seating area isn't very large and can get crowded with locals. The staff however was very friendly we were greeted with a smile and when seated our server went over the menu with us. They bring out chips and salsa which was good and I ordered a Shrimp Quesadilla which was larger than I was anticipating and simply delicious. The food was great and the staff was exceptional we would highly recommend this place despite the fact it is out of the way and will return.

“Best Mexican around”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

Fiesta Grill is one of the best experiences I have had in a Mexican restaurant. They have great hand made chips, flavorful salsa and i would love a bowl of the sauce they serve on the rice... oh my! They have a huge menu so you truly can get anything you want. Their food is always fresh and the portions are large. Go early as the line forms around lunch and dinner. If there is a line, just grab a beer and join the crowd waiting. Fiesta Grill is a fun and delicious experience and a MUST TRY when in Chapel Hill.
