“El Encanto. It means 'the Enchanted' in Spanish, and lives up to its name—great food, live music, and scenery—what more could you want? Or, Carolinas—owned and operated by a local family with two locations. Delicious and memorable!”
Lindsay Miller, Education
“Aunt Chiladas, because it has a great selection of foods, fun atmosphere and hot Mexican waiters!”
