What People are Saying

“I Will Definitely Return” 

Stopped by today for lunch and had a great experience. I received great service from the waiter. He took my order and returned shortly with my drink, chips and salsa. My order came shortly afterwards and it was delicious. The price I paid for the meal that I had there and what I ordered to go was very reasonable. I will definitely return.

“Best Mexican Resaurants I’ve Tried”

I travel alot and this is one of the best Mexican restaurants that I’ve tried… and I’ve tried alot; very good salsa with just the right amount of spice, white queso dip. I’m a chimichanga fan, but 49er(chicken, cheese & rice) is very good as well

“Favorite Restaurant In The University Area”

My son goes to college at Charlotte and this is his favorite restaurant in the university area. We went there for dinner on Saturday night. The food is very good and has generous portion sizes. We both ordered the Carne Asada and really enjoyed it.
