We were visiting Holden Beach, NC to do some work on a family-owned vacation home. When we first arrived in late February, many of the restaurants were still closed for the season. We went into town to get more paint, and decided to try San Felipe rather than start cooking at 8:00 pm. We were seated right away, given drinks... More

Last year this was a pretty decent Mexican restaurant. Not sure what has happened. Chicken sliced so thin you could see through it. My meal included fajita veggies which was a combo of old veggies that were over cooked and "new" under cooked veggies which included old strong onions. The tortilla chips were whole on top but a crumbled mess... More

Have been eating here for years. Ever since it opened. The manager that was here was terrific but since the new guy came in the food and service have gone downhill. Had lunch there today Alambre Monterey. Which is what I have eaten fairly regularly since it has been on the menu. I don't know what they served me today... More

the best manager that helped serve the best food has left the food industry to spend more time with family! i am happy for him and his family, however San Felipe has gone downhill since he left. Some of the waiters are nasty and do not care about the customers. if you complain about your food they just look at... More

It's clean and decorated for a fiesta. The food was good. The service was good. We were seated quickly and were served promptly. We had the Texas Fajitas for two. The steak was tender and the shrimp was huge. It was a delicious supper. Even enjoyed the Mexican music.

they have changed management who doesnt seem to care about your experience. i would not recommend this restaurant since its under new management. chips are either burned or not cooked, raw peppers in a deep fried chalupa!, tough beef, tough pork. the salsa tasted rancid. sad. it used to be great, but not now.
