We just moved to Pittsboro and were eager to try out the one local Mexican restaurant we could find. We were pleasantly surprised. While the food was okay, the service was fantastic and we will be back.

San Felipe is a solid Mexican restaurant, has a much broader range of menu items. More menu items that you do not find in your typical Mexican restaurant. I had pollo chorizo which was very tasty with out being overly hot but favor-full. We also ordered the fresh made guacamole, for a 75 cent up charge they add jalapeño to... More

The beans tasted like they had been sitting all day. They were dry. I ordered the fajita platter and there were hardly no meat in the platter. It was mostly vegetables. And the green peppers tasted Raw. Maybe I'll give it another chance later on. They need to get it together.

The San Felipe has many of your basic Mexican entrees but this restaurant has high quality food. The gourmet quality of Mexican food is very tasty.

Large menu... typical options. The salsa is good. No kids menu is kinda annoying. Cheap margarita specials and good chips and Salsa go a long way to make up for any shortcomings. The staff is very friendly. This place is VERY busy on weekend evenings.

I ordered the 4 enchilada special. The chicken enchilada contained one large chunk of chicken. It should have been shredded and spread out. The beef enchilada contained what could only be described as mystery meat. It was ground extremely fine and had no texture. Think soy grits. The cheese filling in both cheese enchilada had the taste and texture of... More

We were visiting family and ate here. Cold beer and very good Mexican food. We will stop in there again when we are in Pittsboro.

As my wife and I are in the process of relocating to Pittsboro we have been scoping out local restaurants and were very happy to discover San Felipe. The menu is quite extensive with choices well beyond the normal. Our food was excellent and very nicely presented. We highly recommend this restaurant.
