I go to Cancun every year and have never had Shrimp Tacos there as good at the ones at Chicos. The good is fresh and always good. The salsa is made there and has fresh cilantro,...


Oh Man! Food was so-so, but I do believe my dog could make a better margarita. If I'm going to pay $7 for a margarita it would be nice to have some liquor in it. Won't be back.

The BEST Mexican restaurant on the East Coast! 10/20/2005

I used to live in Greenville, NC where I was able to enjoy Chico's all the time. It was one of the major hotspots for young college students, but since moving to the triangle I haven't been able to eat at Chico's. When I found out there was one in Cary I was so excited. I went there are it is just a great as the Greenville location. This is amazing Mexican food that is 100 times better than Raleigh's popular ""Qudoba's."" Everything is fresh and delicious. This is a great place to go with family, a group of friends, or just a date, because it's very lively. Pros: great food Cons: it's a 15 min drive more

Upscale Mexican 8/6/2005

I go to Cancun every year and have never had Shrimp Tacos there as good at the ones at Chicos. The good is fresh and always good. The salsa is made there and has fresh cilantro, be sure you have lots of water. The staff is friendly and works hard. The kids loved the clown on Tuesday night, they thought the balloon animals were the best. Pros: fresh food, kid friendly, LOTS of food more

Mexican with Style 8/6/2005

I was a fan of Chicos in Greenville when I was there and was happy to see it in Cary. This is not your run of the mill Mexican Resturaunt. The food is classier and you pay a little more, but it is well worth it. The salsa is fresh with LOTS of kick. By far our favorite is the Shrimp Tacos...wish they would share the recipe for that sauce !!!! Deserts are big enough to share. The food is cooked fresh after you order it, sit back and enjoy your free chips and salsa while you wait but be sure to save room as the servings are generous !!! Pros: Fresh food, BIG servings, Great deserts Cons: too far away :( more

the best mexican food ever 8/4/2005

This Mexican restaurant is the best in town. The food is fantastic, and its better then the stuff you get in a super market!!The food is really authentic and tasty. The prices are really cheap. My brother loves Chicos because every Tuesday night they have a clown, and a pool table. Its fun to hang-out with your friends. The staff is so friendly. The decorations are beautiful. The owners are wonderful nice ordinary Mexican people. The patio is beautiful!! :) I love this place I go there everyday. And I still will continue going there with my family!!! :) Pros: not expensive, great food, awesome service more

Great Food! 8/2/2005

I went to Chico's the other day with my boyfriend and it was a great time. We sat in one of their booths, which was great because it felt private. The food was great. My boyfriend had the Shrimp Tacos and I had a Salmon Filet and can i just say that both plates are delicious. I am definitely going back. Pros: Inexpensive, Great Food, Good time more

Where's my dinner? 6/7/2005

My family and I (2 children under 5yrs. old) waited 11/2 hours and we finally left before our food arrived. We were never given a feasible explaination for the delay and the manger was going to give us free ice-cream for the inconvience. Free ice-cream, we just wanted dinner!! Don't eat at this restaurant!!! Cons: food never arrived, poor manger, no service more

Mediocre food, TERRIBLE SERVICE! 5/24/2005

25 minutes before a server even acknowledged us. Got the manager involved and he said, ""Oh -- you're sitting in a section with no server."" Really? Why did the hostess seat us there then? Our ""server"" said it wasn't his section and was barely seen at all. Finally, the manager served us. My friend even had to go to the bar and get drinks! He did more serving than anyone in there! The ""server"" said if we stayed they'd take care of us. Full price for the meal and a $10 off next time we go certificate -- I thought they were going to take care of us, NOT PUNISH US. DO NOT EAT HERE! Cons: terrible service, manager doesn't care more

Pricy but the Shrimp Tacos are worth it! 11/17/2004

For a mexican resturant, Chicos tends to be pricy and very americanized. They feature dishes like Cancun Oysters, Shrimp Tacos, and huge specailty salads which are all worth the 8, 9, 10 you will spend for them. However if your looken for your every day $5 taco & enchilada combo I would tell you to go somewhere else. P.S- Shrimp Tacos and desert are outstanding!!! Pros: Inovative food, Fresh tasting Cons: , Prices, No Special Requests more

Terrific 1/24/2003

Best Mexican I've had in Raleigh. The place is really cool, too. I'll be back!!! more

Up and Coming! 10/31/2002

I have been a customer of Chico's since the college days at East Carolina. This restaurant has friendly and efficient service. Everything is made fresh! The salsa is to die for....fresh cilantro! If you want a good margarita they have the best! I suggest the ""TOP 2""! Give it a shot and if you tried them when they first opened, GO BACK! Pros: Very Friendly, Reasonable, Great Patio Cons: Parking is decieving, Hidden, Location unknown more

Needs improvement 10/26/2002

I wish I could help them w/ their food and margarita's...... It has potential but really misses the mark on good mexican food and fun. more

Mexican? Are you kidding? 9/14/2002

This is nothing more than a generic chain ""Mexican"" restaurant. It is bland, not even close to authentic, and overpriced for what you get. If you like this place, you have no idea what Mexican food is, and / or you just like the interior decor. You can get MUCH better Mexican food in the frozen section of the grocery store. FAUX-MEX at its worst. Cons: quality more

Excellent Salsa and more 8/13/2002

This is my favourite restaurant. The food tastes great, Salsa and Guacomole are a must, and the portions are reaaly big - a great value - I also like the ambience and spacious as well as tasteful interior. Pros: Salsa, Guacomole, great value, specials every day more

Once Was Enough! 6/21/2002

Oh Man! Food was so-so, but I do believe my dog could make a better margarita. If I'm going to pay $7 for a margarita it would be nice to have some liquor in it. Won't be back. more

Love it! 6/5/2002

As a regular at Chico's in Greenville, I was thrilled when the Cary location opened. I find the prices reasonable, the food great as well as the atmosphere. The service is questionable from time to time, but the food is consistently great! Much better than most in the area. more

Nice place, good prices 5/30/2002

Too expensive? Heh, ehm okay. I've been about 6 or 7 times and have always liked the atmosphere and food. I especially like the outdoor seating. more
