Very attentive staff, food was exceptional. We loved the choice of music.
Just not very good food. The fillings for tacos and quesadillas were greasy and bland.
Been here a number of times and recommended it to others. The food is fresh, tasty and unique. Great that it’s a family affair. In addition, a comfortable place where you can talk.
Great platanos sampler. Mole was excellent; I enjoyed the spinach enchilada with mole. The black bean and sweet potato stew could have been more flavorful. Service was friendly and attentive.
I had been before and had a great meal, this time I ordered the special and was surprised that is was not great. Tasted like leftovers. I do apologize, I wish it had been better, I was dinning with a client.
The I he tuna fish taco was outstanding. The sangria was good but should have had fruit in it. The service was excellent.
Fabulous service and good food at sensible prices. We were late and hence tight on time, but had a relaxed meal and made the concert (at Duke) on time.
Blue Corn is one of our regular go-tos. The food is very good. The prices are very reasonable. The great thing is really the service. It is the best waitstaff, routinely, in Durham. I have never had a bad meal and have always had an enjoyable time. It is family friendly and also great for a date night. The Cuervo Margarita is worth the upgrade price and the combo meals are large.
We wanted to go someplace new before the Full Frame Doc Festival. Saw Blue Corn on the internet and decided to try it. So HAPPY we did.. This will be one of our go to places in Durham from now on..
Good food, friendly service, and nice atmosphere.
Good place for any occasion. Good wines. Reasonably priced.
Great experience...food, service, atmosphere.
Fabulous food and great service, as always. We always enjoy Blue Corn, it's one of our regular stops.
Overall good service, drinks, and food. My black beans were cold though.
Just excellent in every way. My father is super picky about tacos and he crushed all three on his plate. My mom's black beans are legend of these are a fierce competitor to hers. I highly recommend the enchiladas and the salsas you get with the chips are absolutely fabulous and pair so well with tacos.
I love the food and our server was amazing! Blue Corn offers many entrees you can’t get elsewhere so it’s always a new and delicious experience!
The three of us had a lovely early dinner before a cello/piano forte concert at Baldwin Auditorium. The food was excellent with a nice selection of dishes for most tastes certainly ours. We had enough leftover fish to make fish tacos at home for lunch the next day.
Amazing food!! Every item we tried tasted great!! This is my 4th visit. I want to keep going back again
Nice change from standard American or Mexican menus. Great food preparation and all paired with great service.
Food and service were outstanding! I will definitely be back.
We had dinner here for Valentine's Day. Being from out of town, we had not dined here before, and what a pleasant surprise! The vibe of the restaurant is laid back and attentive. There was a trio of musicians playing in the front area, but we were seated in the back. We could hear the music but could talk and hear each other. The service was good and patient with our questions. The food was tasty and well presented. I had the fish tacos (grilled by request). My son had the pork and my husband had fish. We were all pleased. It was a very relaxing and pleasant experience. Will be back!
Mateo, our waiter, was excellent. The food was delicious. The music was very pleasant. We will return.
Our table of four was greeted promptly and we received excellent service at Blue Corn Cafe. The entrees were acceptable enough, but the sides: black beans and rice were lukewarm and lacking flavor. I'm not sure that I'd return given the large number of other good restaurants in the 9th Street area.
Excellent experience with a great menu selection and fast, friendly service.
Nice nice nice. A high quality restaurant with pleasant atmosphere. You can actually have a conversation without yelling.
One of our "go to" restaurants in Durham. Locally owned and committed to high quality. Delicious meals and a menu that is especially inclusive for vegans and vegetarians.
This restaurant was so tasty. The staff was incredible. I will definitely return.
Lunch with the Nieces! I gave them two place to pick from and they picked Blue Corn Cafe - it was a first visit for all of us. We were cheerfully greeted and promptly seated in an open, bright eclectic environment. The menu offered wonderful options for the many health and dietary restrictions some have. Service was warm, helpful and attentive. Portions were plentiful and delicious. Before our entree we shared guacamole and calamari - both were substantial portions for sharing between four of us.
It was s lovely visit and enjoyable meal and we will be back!
Always a pleasure to dine at Blue Korn. Food is always good, the service outstanding and staff is wonderful.
We had one of the best servers we have had anywhere in years - friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Coupled with great food, Blue Corn is an all-around winner!
Food was great, flavorful and great portions. Drinks were tasty and came out quickly. Our waitress was so nice and helpful. She made great suggestions and really made our experience great. We will definitely be back!
Met a girlfriend for supper and loved everything about it! Wyatt our server was helpful in suggesting menu choices (including drinks). This is absolutely a repeat!
Chef and staff beyond accommodating to our variety of dietary issues! Allergies and specific food prep requirements. Really awesome!
Food was fresh, portions large and drinks strong!!
First time here but we will be back! Great margaritas as well as sangria. Loved the guacamole, salsa and homemade chips. Hubby enjoyed the calamari and I had a spinach quesadilla. Large portions so we took home leftovers! Food was fresh and delicious and our wait person, Cici, was awesome and so helpful.
My meal was absolutely delicious! The service was great, the company was wonderful.
We eat at Blue Corn most Friday nights with good friends and we do so for many reasons. First, the food is delicious and reliable, always made with the freshest ingredients and care. Second, the owner and her servers make us always feel like we’ve been invited as their personal guests to their wonderful home. Finally, we can have a conversation without worrying that the table next to us is listening to our every word. And we can hear each other without having to raise our own voices. We aren’t crammed in and we never feel hurried. It is our “go to” restaurant for dinner with friends. And there is always available parking.
Good meal although I found the pork shank a bit salty. Overall though a great place and it’s easy to see how they havare been a long standing survivor on 9th street!
Very nice place with exvelent service, but is not Latin American food, is an eclectic cusine with some latin ametican ingredients, but do not expect your abuelita ropa vieja!!!!
We all loved our meals and the chips and salsa; however, one of us received the wrong dish and the server said she hadn't ordered the chicken dish and we all heard her say it, so . . . . weird. Our friend ended up sticking with the wrong dish because she thought she'd like that one, too (and she did), but it was odd that the server reacted that way. This is the reason I gave 3 stars to Service instead of 4. Only once in several years have I not been satisfied with the food and/or service here, and that's pretty darn good!
The food was fantastic and our waiter Bryan was knowledgeable, astute, courteous and attentive. One of the best dining experience we have had in the Triangle in ojr three years living here.
Second time here for lunch, good food great portions and very nice atmosphere.
Last time service was off due to only one server??
Otherwise a real good option.
