  • At 1920 Perry St., the Cosmic Cantina makes every tortilla right at the restaurant, right after you order it. That same attention and detail goes into every plate of steak nachos, roasted veggie burritos, giant chimichangas, and cheesy tacos. Wash it all down with a pitcher of Cuervo margaritas or sangria.
  • Authentic Mexican food meets casual dining at The Patron Mexican Grill. Located at 3438 Hillsborough Road, this Duke University favorite offers sizzling mushroom quesadillas, fish tacos and more. Try the favorites, or indulge in the chef’s authentic specials, like sausage and eggs, pork carnitas or chilaquiles tortillas.
  • Chubby’s Tacos is a popular choice all over the Triangle. Right at 748 Ninth Street, the little taco shop packs in all the cheese, meat and spicy fillings you can handle on gorditas, tortas, burritos, quesadillas, and tacos. On the side of your queso dip and quacamole, try refreshing aqua frescas with sopapillas and fried ice cream.
