Chips & Salsa
This is a review of a Mexican restaurant located in Fuquay Varina, North Carolina called El Lobo. It's located in the Fuquay Crossing shopping center near Kroger. They are open from 10:30 am until 10 pm daily. Their current sanitation rating is 95.5 which is very good. We visited on a Wednesday around 12:30 pm. It took a few minutes to be seated since they were very busy.
The friendly waiter immediately brought us chips and salsa. Shortly thereafter he came back and took our drink order. The chips are very crisp without any greasiness and the salsa is thin not chunky. The salsa tasted a bit salty to me and it's not as spicy as I expect from a Mexican restaurant though we both enjoyed it. We both ordered off the discounted lunch menu. Hubby ordered the Chimichanga and I ordered the Fajitas. The prices are excellent, but mind you they are smaller portions, so if you are really hungry I recommend ordering off the regular menu. It's the perfect portion for a quick lunch on a workday. It took about twenty minutes for our food to arrive, so I was happy we had chips to lesson the hunger while we waited. This visit lasted fifty-two minutes, so it may not be fast enough if you have to get back to work quicker than that. If you are in a rush I recommend ordering right away. My chicken was overcooked and dry and the guacamole was bland. The onions, tomatoes and green peppers were cooked well. The beans were delicious though I would have liked a larger portion especially since I skipped the rice it comes with. Hubby's chimichanga was very small and he wasn't crazy about it's flavor. He won't be ordering it again. We've been to the restaurant several times before and we would consider returning for an inexpensive quick lunch if in the area. It's just not our favorite Mexican restaurant. At only $14.90 prior to tip, it's a bargain for lunch. What's your favorite Mexican restaurant in the Triangle? Our favorite Mexican restaurants are Mi Casita and Tacos Oaxaca which are both located in Lillington. The Mi Casita review will be posted soon, so stay tuned.
