Gem. Just needs polishing.
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.

Welcome to Durham Mixteca Taqueria!
It is so nice to have a new Portsmouth level dining option in Durham.

The food, which is custom
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.

Great local find!
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. :-)

Best Mexican Food
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.

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.

In Spite of a few hiccups...
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.
