Great food that is extremely cheap but fresh made and simple. They are always friendly and there's plenty of space to hang out.

The food is a little unhealthy and grease, but it is worthy it. This is not an everyday spot, but it is good to be a little unhealthy every now and then. The chicken tacos, and chips and queso are my favorite.

Armadillo grill is right down the street from a local favorite, Carrburritos, and while it doesn't offer quite the extravagance in either fillings or salsa, its convenience makes up for those failings. There is nothing eye-popping about Armadillo grill. If you've ever been to a Qdoba, Chipotle, Willy's, etc. then you'll know exactly what you're getting. The food is fresh and reasonably priced, although it can start to mount up if you go for their very popular queso dip or guacamole. A tiny salsa bar (two varieties) seems sparse, but the fact that you don't have to wait (Carrburritos) to talk to someone about getting more salsa is a huge bonus, especially for groups. It has a fairly spacious seating area, including decent outdoor seating, and its proximity to a good sized parking lot is another bonus.

Pros: Good value, free salsa, parking

Cons: Queso dip and Guac demand a high price (for this sort of place)

I ate at the restaurant the other night and found a huge piece of trash in my food. When I complained to the manager, they called the police on me. The service was completely rude. If you like to eat trash then you should eat here. If you have specific prefeneces, then do not eat here because you might get arrested.

I would be in bliss if I could have the Armadillo grill guacomole and a soft bean burrito every day. Though my friend raves about the steak fajitas, and another about the chicken enchiladas. We come at least a couple times a month to get our fiixes. The food is real, freshly prepared on site from the real deal. We love it!

...eat at Armadillo Grill. I can think of basically nothing redeming about the food here. My beef taco tasted like someone took some store bought taco seasoning and added it to ground beef. There are literally dozens of good mexican places in the Durham/Chapel Hill area so there's no excuse to eat here. Well, that's not entirely true. When I challenge people that eat there, they say, if you're really drunk and it's really late... OK, so I suppose that's a fine enough reason to go.

I think that the Armadillo Grill is a great place to go for the tacos. Two tacos and an order of nacho chips, washed down with a beer is a tasty inexpensive meal. Their ingredients are fresh and tasty, and they are very generous with the nacho chips. The atmosphere is pretty good too. I always find seating right away. Its a great place to go to when Im in the mood for some tacos or when the line at nearby Carrburritos is too long. (I recommend Armadillo Grill for the tacos and Carrburritos for burritos).

I heard so many raves about this place that I just had to try it. After two visits, I still can't see what the fuss is about. Even for a bare-bones place, the food is worse than mediocre, especially the taco salad. There are so many good Mexican places in the area, why bother with this one?

Gosh, if you're looking for a taco salad, go back to Taco Bell, but if you're looking for the best tacos, fajitas, soft tacos, guacamole, salsa, burritos, etc., this is your place. The food is a fresh as can be--and oh so tasty.\n\nI've been a fan since my first visit 7 years ago. And now, with a location in Raleigh, I can go for lunch, too.\n\nI just wish they'd open a branch in Durham (with ample parking).\n

I got a chicken taco salad and it was pretty crappy--just a bunch of shredded iceberg lettuce over some tortila chips really. I don't know about anything else on their menu, but I was not impressed at all.

Just visited the new Raleigh location on Glenwood. Two steak fajitas with a Coke was 6 dollars and change. The food was very good and filling - no complaints here. The place has a nice ambience inside and outside on the patio. Also has a nice full bar for Glenwood South pre-partying...

This place was a good ideal that didn't pan out. The food is okay, but the customer service is horrible. When you go in, you have to fill out an order sheet from the menu that doesn't have spaces for everything on the menu so you end up telling the cashier what you want anyway. Its all self serve. There is not even salt and pepper on the table and they all look like they have never been wiped off. The drink fountain and all the condiments are in the corner by the bathroom so everyone is trying to jam in a small space to get their drinks. \n\nTheir one saving grace is that they have great guacamole. Of course they don't have home made chips to go with it.

this is one of my favorite places in the triangle. i've been to the chapel hill one and now the raleigh location on glenwood.\n\nthere's seems to be this trend with people soliciting restaurants even though they serve bad food, have bad service and are expensive - i refuse to participate! it usually means only choosing one or two places to eat at and this is one of them!\n\nreally great tacos, chips and salsa. friendly service. good price. i want to eat here everyday!
