Just tried Hacienda El Rey, was great. Service was quick, our cups were never empty! Just a proper old school Mexican restaurant with attentive service and a nice vibe. Will for sure go back!

Lupe was our waitress today. We come here often because the food is pretty good. However, today everything tasted so much better because she put so much effort on making the experience that much better. We started with the traditional ceviche for appetizer and Lupe recommended a few good options for dinner. We ended up having the mol ... read more

This is our go to Mexican restaurant. I love the Fajitas El Rey. They are easily my favorite fajitas, with so many meat options. The whole family loves the food from this place too! Also... It's great for curbside pickup. The pickup lane is very convenient and you get enough food to usually last more than one meal!

Waxhaw finally has a bonafide Mexican restaurant! Friendly and clean - everyone was smiling! The food is delicious, portions are generous, and well presented - the guacamole is, hands down, the best I've ever tasted. Our waitress. Osiris, really seemed to enjoy serving us. We'll be back - again and again!
