Sister restaurant to Zapoteca Restaurante and Tequileria is coming soon.

The variety of tequilas is
impressive. You can even have scorpions in your drink, if you wish. The guacamole was good, but not well mashed. It was like eating chunks of avocado with some spices. The calamari was lightly breaded with a tasty dipping sauce. We all had enchiladas that were good and not served in an overly large portion. The food was good, predictable Mexican food."

We went for an early dinner before
a hockey game. Made a reservation but no need as there were only 2 other tables occupied and the restaurant is bigger than it looks from the outside. We were in the back room which is quieter than the front room (which is more of a bar). Food was good but not outstanding. Portions not especially large. We requested "No beans" with our dinners and expected that extra rice would be substituted, but it was not, resulting in rather small dinners for the money. It would be an inexpensive way to give the customer a better value, and maybe increase repeat business. Will probably go back to try the margaritas and some other dishes. It's nice to have an option other than pizza in downtown Durham."

Guacamole was not authentic and
did not seem "made to order". Carne asada tacos were cold and the corn tortillas did not seem fresh. The pork enchiladas were excellent and the red sauce particularly yummy. So it was hit and miss for us."

Finally a GOOD Mexican restaurant
in Durham. The staff appears mostly college kids - more training on attentiveness would be helpful. Food was outstanding. Large portions. Imaginative. Excellent variety. The drinks were a little pricey, but otherwise the menu was a fair price. We used an OpenTable check from redeemed points. They had NO idea how to accept the check. After taking every piece of data off my license and having me sign the check where the restaurant is supposed to sign they finally accepted it as partial payment. The following morning I received an email from O/T telling me the restaurant had canceled my reservation. That being said, we really enjoyed the restaurant, the food, the experience in general and will return often."

I organized a dinner for a group
from UNH after a visiting speaker. The restaurant was very flexible, accommodating a last-minute change from 9 to 12 people, and holding our table when we arrived slightly late. The service was friendly and fast, and the food was good. The location is conveniently close for anyone at UNH, a 5 minute walk from the MUB."

Went Friday night 9/13 and then
the following Monday 9/16. Margarita's were the worst I've ever had. So sour and no taste of tequila what so ever. Told the waitress and she put something sweet into the drink to offset the sourness..did not help. Did not have a margarita on the following Monday but two of my friends did..same result. A Mexican restaurant with bad Margarita's..not a good thing."

It's great to have such a great
spot in Durham. A very comfortable and enjoyable place to eat, and the choices/food is fresh and cooked to order. Fabulous!!!"

visit this restaurant again."

We decided to give Mexteca
Taqueria a try and were treated to perhaps the best Mexican fare we have ever experienced! The ingredients were fresh and choices made to order. The service was excellent and we will be back. One of the best spots in Durham."

A friend recommended we check out
this restaurant and we were very impressed! Especially Tuesday Taco Night where the tacos are $2 each. Great selection of tequila too - excellent margarita with generous amount of tequila. :-)"

The food, which is custom made to
order, is delicious. However, it takes a long time for anything to arrive. we went early on a Saturday night and ran into several families we knew. For one group, it had taken two hours to get to dessert. We were headed to an event after, so we just ordered entrees, and it took about 45 minutesforthem to arrive. The fish tacos were mouthwatering and the mole was sweet.We will definitely be back, but only when we know we have plenty of time."

It is so nice to have a new
Portsmouth level dining option in Durham."

Clearly not quite ready to handle
the new restaurant. Service was very slow. Wait staff were friendly but overwhelmed. Appetizers and main course arrived together after more than 30 minutes. How long should it take for chips, salsa and guacamole. Never did get the guacamole! Food was good once it arrived. It was very noisy. I'll give them more time to get it together before trying it again."

Same great Mexican-inspired food
as its big-sister restaurant in Portland. While I had high expectations for a similar experience as those had at Zapoteca, I was a little disappointed by the general ambiance and feeling of Mixteca. That said, I went on its second full night of business, so I am sure the owners/managers are still in the process of making the new space their own. Will definitely be back to have the delicious drowned pork sandwich."
