My boyfriend and I had a great first experience at Si Senior. I got the best ACP I've ever had in my life. Compliments to the chef. The chicken was PERFECT. And everything tasted amazing. Our server, Molly, was outstanding. It was her customer service that really made us think wow we need to write a review. We had simple orders but made sure our order was right. She also was super helpful with suggesting which salsas/dips to try. We will definitely be back to Si Senior and we will always ask for Molly!

First saw this place while visiting another restaurant and it looked like a fun Mexican place. We went back the next night and boy are we glad we did. My wife had a grilled shrimp salad that was excellent. The salad had large plump fresh shrimp that were seasoned and grilled perfectly. I had the Mexican flag chimichanga that was stuffed with beef short rib meat. Easily one of the best chimichangas I have ever had. The service was fast and friendly. The menu has many items I plan on trying next time. So good.

Food is good quality every time. Taco Tuesday is nearly theft and there is a taco they have that's not on the menu you can get. It was on the door flyer and I asked about it. I've never been sick from eating here and it's do reliably good it's my go to place whenever I just want to eat out and know it'll be good.Wait staff is very good, there's a guy there we always seem to get and he's professional.Also, there's a burrito eating contest I'm going for one day. You can do it any time but I need to get married first so it doesn't scare of my ol'lady.

Review №4

This is probably the best Mexican food I have had in this town! Everything is super fresh and well presented. The tortilla soup was amazing and the short rib soft good. I went about a week ago and they had a $10 lunch special which was probably enough food for two, but my husband and I each got one and ate it all! Not sure how long the special will be around for, go try it out soon and enjoy! Oh, and the staff were very helpful and friendly (our server was Gina).

Review №5

A-mazingggg! I'm glad this place had many different pork options as most Mexican restaurants here in wilmington does not. Pork is my favorite and it was done perfectly!

Review №6

First off, love the decor here. It's really neat and although it's a high ceiling it still feels pretty cozy. J.J was a great server and a personable dude. The food itself was very quick to the table which was nice. I enjoyed my nachos very much. The beer was cold as well. My only dislike was the salsa that came with the chips. The chips were perfectly crunchy and seasoned. The Salsa however didn't have much flavor. A little like, salt and cilantro would go a long way. But overall I enjoyed myself and I'll be back.

Review №7

First time trying them out. They have good food and service. Their prices are a little high but they have daily specials which evens the pricing out. We were greeted and served quickly which is a big plus. The ambiance is really nice and I love how the bar has a big open window with their liquor bottles displayed. We will be back for some amazing guac and fish tacos soon.

Review №8

I have only had takeout, but the food is excellent, and they have great lunch specials

Review №9

Other tables got their dishes with no issue. Ours took over an hour once order was placed and still did not get our meal. Chips and queso and chicken tortilla soup were good. However since the main dishes took over an hour and still did not receive our meals is the reason WE WILL NOT BE BACK.

Review №10

Not only is the food always fantastic, but I appreciate the care and professionalism they evidence in this current environment.The took the time and made the investment to protect the health of their patrons. Digital menus, well spaces tables, masked and gloved servers, individual salsa cups are some of the steps the restaurant is taking to make dining a safe and enjoyable experience.Well done Si Senor! Wish other local restaurants would follow your lead.

Review №11

My only regret is that I'm from out of town and can't go every week! Tasty food with good sized portions and each beautifully plated. Recommend going!

Review №12

My first time eating at this restaurant and let me tell you, hands down best Mexican food I've ever had. And I'm a Mexican food addict!!Also, when you come here, ask for Angela!! She is one of the best waitresses I have ever had. She knows the menu in and out, has AMAZING recommendations, and is just the sweetest little lady!11/10 recommend and will most definitely be coming back!!!!!!!

Review №13

Surprisingly good Mexican restaurant. The staff was friendly and everything was great.

Review №14

Been following for a while on Instagram. Great looking food and drinks from their pics. But saw a 77 (C) sanitation grade posted at the register. Would not try the food.

Review №15

Best Mexican dining experiences I've had in my life. Environment is amazing, drinks are great, service is friendly and efficient, and the food is so so good. We are lucky to have such a gem in this area

Review №16

Great service.. wonderful meal!.

Review №17

Food is full of good flavor, drinks are good and fast service. Been here a few times, I keep returning because their food is good and prices are fair. Lets help bring back these small businesses and make them GREAT AGAIN

Review №18

Si Senior has been a constant favorite of ours. We eat there almost weekly. Their food and staff are absolutely amazing. If you have not visited this gem, please do ASAP! You will not be disappointed. My husband and I had to postpone our wedding due to COVID, but we decided this past weekend to still have a mini ceremony with a few family and friends in our backyard to make things official on our original wedding date. We got Si Senior pick up catering and it was the best decision we could have made! The food was outstanding, plentiful, and everyone loved it (and by everyone I mean the 10 people who were celebrating with us, ha!). Thank you Si Senior, for making our special day delicious! We can't wait to come back into the restaurant and enjoy our meals in person with your fantastic staff.

Review №19

What a great find! The food here is delicious and service impeccable. A definite on our list of restaurants when we come to the beach!

Review №20

Great food with some unique and delicious items. Margaritas are quite tasty, and the atmosphere is lively and energetic.

Review №21

Good food. Good choices. Not your typical Mexican restaurant...more fusion style...excellent tacos.

Review №22

Never will be back and will recommend friends and family not to ever visit this place. The experience was very frustrating and unpleasant and it was empty in there. I expected to at least get okay service. The waitress was completely inattentive, they didn't have children's menus, they were out of 3 diferrent items we asked about, we placed our order and were made feel so uncomfortable we left before we got out food that was taking forever being at this point the second table at that place. When we made the decision to leave the waitress called some guy over who didnt even introduced himself (don't know his name or position there) but was after a back and forth and making it clear all the flaws we received no apology and he recognize they were running low on the lemonade that's why it was so watered down and proceeded to send the check with the lemonades being charged. We payed in full and tipped. But I don't think someone else would of paid.

Review №23

My first time. It was great! Watermelon tuna ceviche was delicious. They were safely masked and distanced too.

Review №24

Well food is good.but cant get ur drinks,refiland food they cant get food right.the check u cant get there one tracked mineAnd pricy

Review №25

Awesome. Love the food abd the staff

Review №26

They have awesome staff, food, very comfortable!! Best Mexican food I have ever had!!. A regular there now!!. Keep up the good job!!

Review №27

Picked up family fajita trio pack and it was delicious. curbside pickup worked perfectly for me..

Review №28

Had lunch here and it was fabulous!! Angela took great care of us and gave us great suggestions. The food is delicious! We ordered flan and it was the best We've ever had!! We will definitely be coming back!

Review №29

A fancier sit down and order Mexican place than one where you order at the counter. A little more expensive too, but worth it for the effort they put into presentation. The staff was super friendly yet not intrusive after the food came. My only gripe is that the font on the menu was really small and I had a hard time reading it. Maybe magnify glasses upon request? That really stressed me out, but once the food came and was so pretty and delicious I forgot about that. Worth the trip and worth the money. Will return for sure. (With super reading glasses)

Review №30

Best Mexican cuisine around! Fast and super friendly!

Review №31

Wow! This place is amazing! I had the fried avocado tacos We'll be back.

Review №32

Went in for lunch. Had a couple of beers with the burrito I ordered. The burrito was not as tasty as I expected.

Review №33

Unbelievably delicious food, friendly staff, quick service. Has outdoor seating as well.

Review №34

The Rice in Paradise was incredibly good! The mix of flavors was fantastic - I didn't feel any need to even add any sauce! After the entree, the tres leches cake was very well prepared and very ornately decorated. Mollie was very friendly and impressively knowledgeable about the menu items - including tasty pairings. Thank you very much for exceptional service!

Review №35

Had heard about this place through a friend...So happy that I decided to try it!! So good, and fresh! Nice "twist" on your typical Mexican fare...Loved all that I had...I will be back!

Review №36

Love the food & the margaritas! We have never had a bad meal or service.

Review №37

We always have delicious food and the best customer service every time our family goes here. The margarita mix is amazing too!!

Review №38

Amazing and creative food and DELICIOUS margaritas! Everything was fantastic...the hostess and wait staff were super friendly, and the environment was lovely and casual. I really can't recommend Si! Señor enough. And their one year anniversary party is on Saturday (3/11)!

Review №39

Today we called in a large order (about 20 people) and the order was ready very quickly and we had a great experience dealing with Angela and Savannah. Definitely recommend this restaurant!

Review №40

Had the BEST experience here. Truly the best Mexican food I've ever had, and don't even get me started on the service, it was truly spectacular. Our waitress was INCREDIBLE, I wish I could have e tipped her more. Incredible, my group LOVED every single aspect of this restaurant

Review №41

Absolutely amazing. Came here with a friend for the first time and was very impressed. Great food for the price point. Drink specials, ambience was very unique.

Review №42

Delicious! Great service. Live music on Saturdays.

Review №43

Good variety of food, fun atmosphere, and everything was tasty. Our waiter was pleasant and had a constant smile. I enjoyed my experience here. I did think the food was a bit pricey but about typical for the area.

Review №44

Horrible customer service . Train your workers to infor m better about their sitting limit before wasting my friends and I time . We did a reservation for 8 they told us it was ok to come in . Once we got to the restaurant they told us we had to sit separate!!

Review №45

No doubt the best Mexican food in Wilmington, NC and eastern North Carolina at large. Eddie and Alex are cool as hell - down to earth guys and they treat everyone with respect and good humor. This is my home spot and I'm proud of it.

Review №46

Good service and very family friendly. Carne Asada was good and the endless chips and salsa were also. Tried the queso and it was amazing. Kids and I had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed our food.

Review №47

Great food great staff

Review №48

Tried to call in a pickup order, waited over 10 min listening to her checking people out, talking to other staff, at no point did she tell the next person please hold 1 sec while I take this order, she just continued on checking out 3 different customers got tired of waiting so I hung up and wont be coming back.

Review №49

Second time here. Great food, great service! Will be back!

Review №50

Food is average and service barely so. Leadership/Management needs to step it up some, as this place has potential.

Review №51

Delicious food! Courteous staff!

Review №52

The place is beautiful, nice bar, Loved the Churasco I ordered, and the desert was banging!

Review №53

Food is delicious. Service was awesome. Taco Tuesday is where it's at y'all!! Shout out to Mollie B. She was super sweet and make for a pleasant experience. Will be back to try out the frozen strawberry margarita

Review №54

Good pork tacos

Review №55

Great food, great waitstaff, and good prices. We were seated as soon as we came in for dinner on a Friday night (around 6), but the restaurant filled up quickly after that. The menu had a decent selection of beers, wines, and mixed drinks with 7 dollar margaritas. It is definitely worth a visit.

Review №56

Seriously our favorite restaurant, everything is perfect every single time. Tacos, quesadillas, queso - all so good!! We love their margaritas and the cape fear is our favorite! We come here weekly. Highly recommend.

Review №57

Amazing food that's as tasty as it is exotic. Great service, Love this restaurant.

Review №58

Let's talk about the margarita flight... Amazing! Ordered the Castillo and shrimp tempura tacos, both fantastic. Hayleigh offered great recommendations for the table. Service was wonderful, food was amazing and we'll definitely be back to try out some weekly specials.

Review №59

Friendly service. Accommodating and delicious food!

Review №60

Good food and friendly service, will be going again

Review №61

We have been here quite a few times and always enjoy it. We went on taco Tuesday and got the $2 tacos and tried to use a VIP gift certificate from the attractions book for $10. We had the coupon out on the table the entire time so the waitress was aware we wanted to use it. No where on the certificate does it state that you can't use it for the taco special. All it states is that it can't be used for alcohol, tip. Or gratuity which is completely understandable. After handing the coupon to the waitress she then informs us that the manager says we are not allowed to use it on the taco special. Going to stick to places that honor coupons and gift certificates without making up their own rules when it comes time to pay.

Review №62

Tacos were horrible, me an mi 5 workers come in all the time for fun,for looking for amigos like the good times they have with the mesera

Review №63

I cannot believe they are part of San Felipe! The Cadillac was the best margarita I've ever had, anywhere. I couldn't believe it. The food was fresh and nicely presented, service was top notch. Please, San Felipe, incorporate this model more often!

Review №64

Great food and our waitress was wonderful. I have to say I was sceptical how the service was going to be after a waiter walked by and said to the hostess, "Don't seat them in my section." All in all I'm thankful we didn't sit in his section because our waitress was knowledgeable and able to answer our questions. Food coming out was slow but I attributed that to it being newly open and getting their flow down but the food was worth the wait!!

Review №65

Food was delicious!!! Our waitress Caitlin was super friendly and attentive. Only thing that was disappointing was the manager refused to allow us to use a coupon and a gift card together. Not sure what one had to do with the other but in hindsight I should of asked to split the check. It's not like we wouldn't of still had to pay out of pocket out check was $50.

Review №66

The first time I went here, the food was good. I ordered tempura shrimp tacos and my husband ordered a burrito. Last night we went back, I ordered the same thing, my husband got the mahi tacos and the brisket tacos. My shrimp tacos and the mahi tacos were over cooked and barely had anything on them. The bartender who wasn't our original server accidentally flung food all over my husband and I. The bartender simply apologized but did not offer us anything to get the food off our clothing. It was pretty upsetting even though it was an accident. Unfortunately this place is not consistent with their food so it's hard to say if we will be back.

Review №67

Sundays kids eat FREE with an adult! Food is always delish and service awesome. I wish I could remember our waitresses name because she was so accommodating and helpful!

Review №68

Great food and awesome taco tuesday!

Review №69

Not good. $16 for gristle steak fajitas and wife got the “special” scallop dinner - $19 for 3 scallops? Will not be back. Also had a coupon for $25 we were not able to use due to ordering the $19 SPECIAL SCALLOPS - all 3 of them. Don't recommend. K38 right around the corner and much better.

Review №70

Was lied to twice when redeeming certificates at this establishment. They make their own rules up despite all restrictions clearly printed on the certificates. The general manger even lied to me and made up two different stories when confronted that made zero sense. Used to be a favorite spot of mine. Never going back again, they cant admit the own mistake and pony up for 2 cheap margaritas that cost them hardly anything and charged me 7$ a piece.

Review №71

Ordered the steak taco and it was tender and had some kind of delicious salsa on it. Ordered beans and rice on the side and was some of the best I've had at a Mexican restaurant. I will definitely be back on our way to the beach again!

Review №72

The food was definitely above average. I had the Lobster Tacos 3 per serving. Very good portions and lots of Flavor along with Real pieces of Lobster. The rice and beans paired well together and had a rich flavor. It was not your typical rice and beans that every Mexican restaurant serves. I had a Classic Mojito but unfortunately it was made with Vodka instead of Rum and I couldn't taste the mint. But you definitely have to try this place you will not be disappointed.

Review №73

As usual, service was excellent. Fajitas came out hot and sizzling and I took enough home for at least a whole another meal! Great place!

Review №74

We love this place, and visit it often. The apps are delicious and the staff are always friendly. Had a few hiccups in service the last visit but I think it was just a fluke night - the server seemed distracted. But every other time we have come has been stellar. Would def recommend!

Review №75

The food is always delicious but the girl with all the tattoos who waits tables is not a good server. We almost turned around when we realized she was working because we have had her several times with always the same experience. She is slow, not attentive, always forgets things and you have to ask multiple times for things. She did not ask us if we wanted a 2nd beer today. I ordered a small queso and not only did she not not ask us if we wanted to split the queso or who wanted it she put it on my friends check. Today to top it off she assumed I did not need change and just took my tab. I wasn't planning on needing change but the polite thing is to ask if I need change or bring change just in case.

Review №76

Food is so fresh and friendly excellent service

Review №77

Can't recommend this place enough. Great food, great people running it

Review №78

Always great service and delicious food

Review №79

Just great service great food and what a unique and delicious menu the author of this menu is a genius!The braised short ribs are to die for!I in

Review №80

Fantastic food, fantastic wait staff. Definitely worth the drive if you're anywhere close.

Review №81

Unique, insanely good, fairly authentic. Not cheap but well worth it. Wish that the Porter's Neck crowd's banal tastes didn't run their white sauce and green sauce away from the complimentary salsa trio (but you can still ask for it!)

Review №82

Have been there twice. Well trained and attentive. Food was very good. Not traditional Mexican in a few ways, but I liked the contemporary take on a lot of items

Review №83

Great modern Mexican food. The tuna watermelon ceviche is a great app.

Review №84

Decided to stop after an appointment to get a quick bite to eat. We were sooo impressed. Food was quick, and hands down the best mexican weve had in a while! The place waa really clean, colorful, and beautifully decorated.

Review №85

Awesome modern twist on Tex-Mex fare. Phenomenally tasty beyond the imagination. Would highly recommend.

Review №86

It was okay. The salsa lacked taste. The food looked great but tasted okay. Would I eat there again? Maybe. The black beans were the best part of the meal. The service was not real good.

Review №87

The say the food is modern Mexican. Guess I would have liked a bit more of the traditional flavoring myself. T

Review №88

Amazing service, amazing food, everything is always perfect ️

Review №89

Food was good, large burrito but no rice or beans and price was $16...Service was good but slow...Not worth the price.

Review №90

My new favorite sit down Mexican restaurant. Everything is very fresh and the atmosphere is happy and relaxing.

Review №91

I was actually surprised how good the food was, the plates are perfect for one person, prices are good and the costumer service is amazing..

Review №92

Wonderful food! Pleasant staff! Good modern take on Mexican food.

Review №93

Very good service very good food

Review №94

I live in Ohio. And this is probably the best Mexican restaurant I have ever been to. The salsa are delicious. Loved the Jalapeno Margarita. And my burrito was so moist and flavorful. Will definitely be coming back when I go back to Wilmington in May.

Review №95

Wow ! So disappointing. placed a to go order. When my husband got there the girl who took the order had not placed it. So he had to wait while they cooked it. Got home and the shrimp fajita entree was missing. Also I ordered Mexican street corn. The worst I've ever had. Barely any flavor. We have dined in before and the food has been pretty good, but I'll never order for pickup again. Now hopefully we will get a credit for the missing entre to our cc.

Review №96

The food was good but I had an issue with the advertising. I was getting a tire replaced at Walmart and I walked over to the adjacent parking lot. The sign outside the door said Daily Special - Taco Tuesday $2.00, so I thought I'd give them a try. Only when I was inside talking to the waitress did I find out that those prices were only after 5:00pm, even though that was not advertised anywhere. Usually a place will be upfront about their specials before you get in the door.

Review №97

Food was good. Great services. Everything was well organised.

Review №98

The place to eat Mexican..yummy

Review №99

Good and prompt service. Decor was fun and festive. Food was great, especially the fried plantains. I like the express lunch option. You should try it, it's a fresh take on Mexican food.

Review №100

First time eating here. LOVED IT! Service was excellent. Food was fabulous! When chips come, ask for all salsas. They are super and no extra charge. I had the much food. Very fresh ingredients and so good! Hubby had pulled pork with mole sauce and kale. The flavor was amazing!!! We both loved it. I will be ordering that next time bc it was so good. Hubby ordered jalapenos on side...very fresh! All of their food is made fresh and looks and tastes it! Prices are very reasonable especially for all that comes with each dish! I had to have a to go box. Will DEFINITELY eat here again!!!! Also, had live music outside. This is the best Mexican restaurant in Wilmington in my opinion.
