I personally think they have the best Al Pastor Tacos in town. I come here just about every weekend or Tuesday for Taco Tuesday and they don't disappoint. Luis is an Amazing manager and all the rest of the staff are always friendly, attentive and helpful. Their mixed drinks are delicious, their salsa is spicy and their tacos are flavorful. Can't ask for a better combo. They have an outdoor seating and I feel like I'm eating in some part of Mexico because of the beautiful decoration.

Review №2

Best tacos I ever had. Been traveling to my home town in sc for them. A good 3 hrs away. Now I got a place I can go and get the same ones. Everything is fresh and its great

Review №3

The service and the food were both fantastic. My husband and I sat on the patio and enjoyed Margaritas. I had the Carne Asada tacos and my husband had the fajita burrito. My tacos were very, very good and my husband thoroughly enjoyed the burrito. Our server Vega was on point without hovering. We will definitely be back!

Review №4

This is my favorite (the best food quality and menu diversity) Mexican Restaurant in Wilmington. Have been at least 10 time s and it is always excellent. The Carnitas Burrito last night was simply amazing! ...and great patio for outdoor seating.

Review №5

Terrific food & great service. I'm not keen on Mexican food usually but this place is amazing. Duck is on the menu along with other dishes that do not include rice & beans.

Review №6

This place was amazing!! Best Mexican food in town, great service, and reasonable prices! The tacos were to die for. So fresh!! Needs more recognition

Review №7

Best Mexican cuisine in Wilmington. Fresh ingredients, well presented dishes (not requiring a gallon of queso to be palatable). Perfectly seasoned tender chicken fajitas with freshly made soft flour tortillas. Refried black beans are good.

Review №8

Food and service is always fantastic. Best Mexican and tex mex in Monkey Junction

Review №9

Great authentic Mexican food with fresh ingredients. Service is fast and friendly and the meals are prepared in a reasonable amount of time. Bar drinks are always great!

Review №10

Good food! Nice, clean restaurant with attentive staff.

Review №11

Delicious!! I was hesitant to order for delivery through a third party too be honest since I've never been here in person, but everything tasted great & was well packaged. Thank you for a great meal! I had the steak fajita quesadilla-- the side of rice & beans was packaged separately to avoid food getting all out of whack during transport. Also came with a side of chips & salsa which I was very excited about. :)

Review №12

My husband and I went out for our 1st meal in a restaurant since the lock down. It was delicious of course, but best of all the staff remembered us and welcomed us warmly! We are so happy to embrace life in our community! All the love to Tequila Comida & Cantina.

Review №13

I had a great time here I went with a group of friends. Very spacious and great decor. My favorite was the logo on the brick wall lit up very nicely has a very classy look. The food was awesome. I'm always weary about Spanish restaurants when I find a good one I say good things about it. I had the mahi tacos which was pretty good. The rice is really good some places are hit or miss. My wife had the steak chimichanga and my friend had the steak fajitas.Check this place out. I think you will enjoy the decor, the music, and of course the food.

Review №14

Spotty mask wearing. Also, ordered on line from the app on their website. Got charged twice and the order was rejected twice. Then called IN the order. Told the employee what happened and she said I better call, it's broken. Then she picked up one of my plastic bags and the round container leaked on its side. She just left it like that. The food was very good, but between the mask being up and down while she helped me, the broken app, and leaking container, I'd think twice about going back.

Review №15

Excellent food!! Great service! Lively and fun

Review №16

Excellent food and sparkling service!. Gourmet Mexican fare without the pretentiousness normally associated with step up restaurants. Beautiful setting. Highly recommended

Review №17

Love the ceviche here and always get an order to take home for lunch. I usually eat in and get fish or shrimp tacos with a margarita. Service is fantastic and reasonably priced. It's located in a shopping center and patronised mostly by locals instead of tourists.

Review №18

Delicious food but pricey. Very clean and Very friendly staff!!

Review №19

Fantastic food!!! Stumbled on them by accident and sure glad I did. Employees were all beyond nice. Next time we are in Wilmington we will stop by

Review №20

I just ordered the shrimp quesadilla and I swear on my life it's the most delicious quesadilla I have ever tasted. Even after being delivered. Whoever made that quesadilla deserves and award. I may name my first born after you.

Review №21

The best Mexican food! Fantastic service!

Review №22

Tequila was open right after Hurricane Florence and seated and served us after they said they wouldn't, all with a smile and wonderful service. The food was excellent and we've been back several times since and received the same level of service and quality of food and ingredients. Highly recommend this hidden gem.

Review №23

The finest Mexican food! Flavor and amazing presentation! I would have given 5 stars, however the acoustics are horrible. Very loud, difficult to carry on conversations over the noise.

Review №24

Tropical ceviche was delicious. Ordered the tuna tacos too.

Review №25

We ordered a bunch of take out for our engagement party and everything was delicious! They never dissapoint!

Review №26

Absolutely delicious food with fresh spicy sauces. The fajita burrito and quesadilla are huge and enough for lunch the next day. Can't wait to enjoy their patio.

Review №27

Over priced and very dissapointed. With the prices so high I expected some effort in the food at least. We ordered a takeout.My Pastor tacos were small and half filled with cilantro which was very poorly chopped. It had huge leaves and +1 inch cilantro stems in it. Mahi tacos had an overwhelming fishy taste, which is unlike Mahi. Makes me question if it was rotten or some extremely poor quality. Our chips and salsa didn't have the salsa in the bag.We ate some bites and had to throw most of it away. Maybe they had a bad day, all I know is I won't be back and certainly wouldn't recommend.

Review №28

Over view of the restaurant is nice but the food needed more seasoning. I personally had the ceviche verde and i just tried to pick at the shirmp because I was really hungry. Won't be going back again for sure.

Review №29

For was okay, but not fantastic. Service was good.

Review №30

They messed up my order but we're very apologetic and fixed it immediately.

Review №31

This is the most authentic Mexican food in Wilmington. You start out with free Mexican bread and tortilla chips with 2 different salsas and a chili olive oil which all added great traditional flavor to our starters. Then I ordered the steak fajita quesadilla with refried beans and rice and ate every bite. Hands down the best quesadilla I ever ate. That avocado sauce is something else. Also very fresh sweet tea. All in a nice atmosphere. Expect me to be a regular here!

Review №32

The food is delicious and the customer service very good make you feel better than you home, I recommend it

Review №33

Waitress would look you right in the eye and walk right past you, several times. Finally was able to get help from someone else.

Review №34

Great service and the best part amazing food, best Mexican food i had ever had in North Carolina.

Review №35

Fantastic Food! Great and fast service. Friendly Staff. Large Portions. They can accommodate large groups. I would call ahead for reservations to be safe. In door and outdoor seating. Big strong drinks. Great place to go to start your Friday or Saturday night! I was the designated driver! So I suggest bringing your own if you want to partake in their fun drink menu. They pour heavy - ask for light ice!!The ceveche was a little tasting last night. More than it should have been. Pass on that.

Review №36

Authentic Mexican food. We will be regulars from now on it was delicious.

Review №37

Place we go for small celebrations for co workers or a few of us after work will go for drinks

Review №38

Great food, nice outside seating area

Review №39

Have kind of story here. Four of us at work had received gift certificates for the amount of $25 each. Finally had a day that all four of us could go at the same time. The server was very pleasant and polite took ours orders in a very timely fashion, the food was equally as good as the service. This where the problem starts. We each get our bill and the server doesn't know how to credit any of us the remaining balance of our gift cards. We suggest totaling the bills ($61) and give us one gift card of the balance, he doesn't know how, he retrieves the bartender, after a little thought his solution to the problem is to hand us back one of the $25 gift cards. Genius......three of us will never return the fourth is a regular. Feel bad for the gentleman that purchased the gift cards, he's the one who really has been taken advantage of.

Review №40

I liked the space. Didn't feel crowded at all. Our waitress was super friendly and attentive. The menu is a bit pricy for certain things. But the portions are great so the prices make a little more sense now. Just a heads up, the AC is kicking so try to get a seat away from the vents or your food will be cold in two minutes. Otherwise I greatly enjoyed my time here.

Review №41

I moved here from Denver about 2 months ago and havent had Mexican since. I have really been craving it and decided to stop in with my boyfriend and my two teenage kids. The hostess was very friendly and seated us right away. The waitress took our drink orders almost immediately. I decided to try a new drink and immediately knew I had made a mistake, I did NOT like it. My boyfriend took it to the bar tender to ask for a different drink and they immediately made me a new drink and they were so friendly about it. Mango margaritas are spot on here!! So yummy! Now, the important part, the food!! I cannot say enough good things! The amount of food, the flavor, and the presentation. Wonderful service, I will definitely be back!!

Review №42

The food was great; however, almost every order had something wrong and took a long time to get our food and checks. The waitress was very overwhelmed but the manager took care of the checks so all is good!

Review №43

Food was very good I thought at first it was more Catina than restaurant but I'm glad I stopped the food is very good I've now Warren here several times service is always good

Review №44

We stopped by after getting into town for a week with the in-laws. Food was delicious. Drinks were great. Service was wonderful. Staff were friendly and took care of us without being a bother. We decided to come again before heading home. A little risky when going in with high expectations, but we weren't disappointed. We'll definitely be back on future visits.

Review №45

Good food and good service and friendly staff.

Review №46

Absolutely wonderful place. Lots of open space with very cool art all around the walls and ceiling. The food was absolutely delicious and came out to us very quickly. The waitress we had was new and came to check on us a few too many times and spilled the drink she was pouring on the table but she was very friendly and doing her best to learn and get better. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone as well as go back again!

Review №47

This waS one of the best experiences that I have had in a restaurant for sure coming back get the fajita burrito.

Review №48

Went here for lunch today. Loved it. The food, the staff, and the atmosphere were just awesome. We can't wait to return. Thank you!

Review №49

The staff are absolutely wonderful....oh and the food is too

Review №50

Cool selection of Mexican food. Great ceviche! Awesome liquor selection, homemade drinks, with cool and unique beers. The service was pretty good. I had the carnitas tacos, which were like a fancy take on street tacos- just okay. Kid's menu is good. My wife had chicken quesadillas that were bland. Not perfect, but we will definitely try again.Edit 3/2/19: upgraded to 5 stars. Great food, service was much better. Real Mexican cuisine! Added to our favorites.

Review №51

OMG this food is deliciousss!!!! Everything is amazing, the food, the atmosphere, service, love it there! :)

Review №52

This is the best Mexican food I've enjoyed in a long time! Coming from Colorado and other points out West, I have a passion for this cuisine. If you love chilies rellenos like I do, (I sample them everywhere...mostly I'm disappointed and occasionally I am happy) this place will knock your socks off!Hand crafted sauces, layered, thoughtful flavor profiles. Delicious cocktails that bring the tequila forward to be appreciated.I'll drive the six hours to come here again!

Review №53

Love this place, great food and the best staff!

Review №54

Used a food delivery service and ordered chicken nachos, al pastor tacos, chicharonne tacos and the ceviche sampler. Food was DELICIOUS!!! Will definitely be recommending to everyone and will order again when in the mood for Mexican.

My first visit with a friend, & it was Very good! I will return. The only thing I didn't like was the salsa. It didn't seem fresh, was the like a puree, so that was disappointing.

Listen to me if you're in or near Wilmington, NC and it's Tuesday ($2 tacos- THEY ARE OUT IF THIS WORLD GOOD!!!-and insane drink specials) or any other day of the week (shrimp tower or whatever in the world else) and you want a 5️ dining experience, you've GOT to get here! The service is PHENOMENAL!!!! Everyone is happy and kind and no one has ever seemed like they would rather be somewhere else. The interior is designer and super clean. (Am I really in Monkey Junction?) YES!!! This is my “go to” place. Always!!!

Review №80

Awesome service. Food was fresh and delicious. Highly suggest you try it.

Review №81

Chose this spot for a lunch meeting after reading about it online. I loved it! The bread and salsa were fantastic, elevating the aesthetic and culinary experience tremendously in comparison a big bowl of chips. The food was imaginative, fresh, and plentiful. Can't wait to return!

Review №82

In a town not short on Mexican food, this place stands out with incredible tasting food.

Review №83

You can tell they care about your experience here, good food and service. The staff works as a team, had many different people wait on me, bring my food (and drinks) and ask how everything was. I hope our monkey junction community consistently patrons this place and help it thrive!

Review №84

Not your typical Mexican restaurant! They started out with fresh homemade bread delivered to your table. The guacamole salad was new and different, had large chunks of avocado and was delicious. Likewise, the pork chops were very good. The flan with fresh strawberries and chocolate drizzle was to die for!! The service was good. I'd give it 6 stars if I could!

Review №85

Ceviche , service and 50Gal drum of Margarita was KILLER!

Review №86

Been to better mexican nice servers may try once more

Review №87

Consistently great atmosphere, service and food.

Review №93

Amazing in every way! Best Mexican food in town and a hidden gem. Service is always attentive, quick and watchful if you could have further needs. Food is fresh, beautifully served and imaginative. Staff obviously take pride in what is served. Try the chicken quesadilla, as it is beautiful, delishious and enough for two. Two thumbs up!

Review №94

Review №99

My family and I are new to the Willmington area and wanted to try some new places to eat. This one was is by far my favorite. Excellent service, our waitress (Cindy) was super sweet and attentive. The food was delicious, portion sizes are large, and the prices are reasonable. We will certainly be back to try some foods from the menu.

Review №100

Had the ceviche tropical. It was the saltiest thing I've ever had in my life. Wife had the steak fajita burrito. It was alright. Nothing great. If you want a good burrito, go to Flaming Amy's and skip this place. Will never come back again.
