4 out of 5 stars
After an amazing experience at a taqueria in Baltimore I have been looking for authentic Mexican flavors in Raleigh and now I have finally stumbled upon some! Our meal was a little more expensive than what I’ve paid for Mexican in the past, but I did go order crazy! I ordered nachos – they’re standard with white cheese. Then two marinated pork soft tacos and a carne asada chalupa. The chalupa was like a regular taco but filled with some cheese, sour cream, and inside of a cornmeal pancake, like an arepa. The meats were unique, with the pork sporting a bit of a vinegar tang and the steak having a roasted flavor, with crispy chunks. I also enjoyed the soft tortillas, made with real masa. It was way too much food for me, I should have only gotten two items. I also enjoyed swigging my Mexican Coke in a glass bottle, made with real sugar.
According to chowhounds, the posole and the goat chili stew called Birria items are the must-try specialties. And if you’re brave you can try beef head tacos or tripe tacos. If you’re not fluent in Spanish, ask for the English menu so you can know what you’re ordering.
