Yum. – I like it here.

Another Bad Meal – No matter how nice the decor is or even the server, if you can't deliver well made food the restaurant will not survive. The quacamole was outstanding so naturally I was looking forward to my Carne Asada entree. Very disappointing! I could not even chew it, tough like Michelin tires. Two friends with me were not so excited about their entrees either. PLEASE improve the cooking!

Best Mexican in Wake County! – I loved this place! Mexican is definitely my favorite, and these authentic dishes have no competition within a 50 mile radius. The guacamole made at my table was incredible. Cantina has an upscale feel and presentation but reasonably priced. My wife and I will be regulars here. Service was great, decor is cool. Finally, GOOD Mexican food that's not ready before you order it.

Skip Glenwood South. Forget those fancy Irish pubs. When you want to drink cheap, walk, don't drive, here. – In Short
Imagine a fraternity house complete with the sagging sofas and lingering odor of beer. Install a bare-bones bar, make sure the wood floors are nicely scarred and that the air-conditioning is broken. Forget about decoration. Who needs art when you've got beer? Go for the cheap bottomless cup--plastic, of course--or an inexpensive monster draft. For a change of pace get jiggy with some Jell-O shooters or an ultra-affordable Cape Cod.

Terrible – The doormen are rude, condescending & have no problem discriminating against people for no reason.
