After reading a subjective list of the 10 best Mexican joints in North Carolina, I’ve made it a minor mission to taste each one when I’m near enough to do so. Looking at the storefront in a non-descript shopping center east of downtown Charlotte will fool you. The fare is far from plain and ordinary to my pleasant surprise. The... More

They weren't kidding, ask for a box, the nachos are HUGE!!! I have to give this place kudos. They accidentally burned my first platter of nachos (did not serve it to me, but notified me promptly), and also took that portion of our order off the bill. And then I was so full from just the chips and salsa, that... More

Decided to try a new place for lunch since we were in the area, and I'm glad we did. Located in a small, strip mall, the outside is nothing exciting. However, once you enter, you get the feeling it's going to be a good place to eat. We were immediately seated and chips and sals were brought to the table... More

I visited Three Amigos in my quest to find a taco spot worth visiting more than once in Charlotte. Unfortunately Three Amigos did not yield a solution. While my chicken, steak and al pastor (pork) tacos all tasted "good," the rice and beans were bland with hardly any flavor. The repercussions were swift--I felt stomach pains within a few hours...

This place is tiny with only a couple of outdoor tables. It has no atmosphere but a lively crowd. its loud but the food is fantastic and the margaritas are the best in town. order a premium one and its made with juices and you can choose your tequila as well. And the best part is that you can actually... More

We stopped here for dinner after shopping and it is great. I had the mixed Fajitas with generous portions of steak, chicken, and shrimp. Washed down with Dos XX Amber, it was a great choice. My wife had a salad and enchiladas and everything was fresh and delicious. Quality food at a reasonable price with great service. Hard to beat... More

This is the one we keep going back to! The food is not just good, it's consistently great! This is a small place but service is always fast and efficient. After two years we are never disappointed with Three Amigos.
