This was a great find! I loved the environment of the restaurant and the customer service was great. There were plenty of menu items to choose from. Me and my girlfriend had to spend some time finding the best dish. I decided to wing it and get a deep fried fish. The texture was amazingly smooth and melted to the tongue. I added some hot sauce to it to spice it up a bit. It's best to eat it with tortilla. for dessert we ate a tres leches cake. I couldn't really eat much of it because I'm lactose intolerant.

Los Tres is THE BEST MEXICAN RESTAURANT in all of the Triangle. The most incredible menu with an entire section devoted to variations of my fave, ACP, plus award-winning plates like "El Durham" are a must for anyone looking for a great local dinner. Even the benches are amazing, colorfully carved with beautiful scenes from South of the Border. The staff are extremely friendly and FAST. Truly one of Durham's finest businesses. Come see for yourself! Andale!

The Cocktail Mixto is the thing I crave on their menu. My sister is a fan of their margaritas, but I am more of a beer and tequila person. Their tequila selection is pretty solid (esp since NC has pretty limited options).

Fantastic Camarron Al Chipotle, and the food was made in a timely manner. The service was also excellent, and the place was clean.

This is and will always be my favorite mexican restaurant in Durham. The food is delicious and the staff are great. I'm on a first name basis with some of the staff members now and really enjoy every visit.

Great Mexican option with small bar, beer, wine and liquor. Even served a local IPA on tap for $3.50. Delicious meal. Nice people. Will patronize next visit to the area. Many thanks!

Four of us had dinner her on Saturday, Sept. 21. The service was friendly and quick. The chips tasted rancid, their oil was too old. The fried onions in my dinner also tasted rancid .

Great authentic Mexican food! Good service and desserts too. One of the few places in in the Raleigh/Durham area with Tamales. I'm a vegetarian but make an exception for their tamales and would eat the meat.

What a great place! Had the most fantastic margarita ever! Definitely order the "grande" size. You will not be disappointed. Our food was fresh, authentic and delicious. If we ever find ourselves in this area again, we will definitely go back.

Nothing to write home about. The food was okay. I've definitely had better Mexican. The cheese sauce was flavorless. Burrito was meh. I won't be going back

One of my favorites however the frozen margarita machine has been broken since the summer and this is definitely stopping the 5th star. Please fix it or get a new one! We love, love, love the margaritas🍹!

Great place to come and eat. Had a great meal at a great price. Four stars is great for a first visit. I look forward to coming back!

Great portions for the price, and pretty good ingredients. My only disappointment was the normal, ground beef: needs more savor and spice. Stick with the steak and carnitas, when you order.

Well I definitely see why they already have such amazing reviews. Food is very authentic and the servers are prompt to get you everything as quick as possible. The prices are surprisingly not increased due to the prime shopping location. Will be back here on a regular basis now with my Co-workers!

Had high hopes for our order based on all the positive reviews but was disappointed. The dishes felt basic and lacked any memorable quality. I will say that the service was nice and our order was ready quickly.

Bright and cheerful! Super nice staff and the food is tasty and very plentiful. (Ask for the extra hot sauce, if you are a Chile Head)!😉

Service was good, food not so much. There was a variety but I kept it simple with tacos and chili con queso. All tasted the same. I wouldn't recommend and I will not return.

Food was amazing, prices fair, vibe is welcoming. I been here 3 times this month. I've found my new favorite Mexican restaurant best this far.

When I post reviews about food I always want to stress this is my opinion and my palate we're talking about. But I believe that this is the best Mexican food or restaurant in the city of Durham. Now again this is my opinion. But my family and I all love it. I'm glad they made it through or seem to be getting through the covid crisis.

Great people and great food. I'm a vegan and they always go out of their way to accommodate me.
