Now that my middle child is transferring to UNC we’ve begun exploring eateries in and around the area. We needed a quick and not fast food option for lunch and spied the armadillo logo. What could be more fun? We liked the ordering method of...More

Ordered 10 wings, 2 veggie soft tacos, queso, a beer, and kid food. 10 wings was actually 20. Not mad about that. Veggie tacos were not good. Tried to eat one, decided to take them home, so soggy. Went in the trash. Lettuce, tomato, cheese,...More

I have been to this place multiple times. The food is very good, especially the guacamole, which works perfectly with their chips. Food is served quite promptly, though the system could be slightly confusing to newcomers. There is a nice patio if you want a...More

The chicken burrito was a soggy mess. It oozed refried beans and contained little chicken. This is a no frills place... the sign was by far the most exciting part of my meal.

We stopped in for a snack suing the mid-day and had the BEST guacamole and chips! The owners are sweet and friendly.

I have a love/hate relationship with Armadillo Grill. I've been eating here for YEARS, but the quality is inconsistent. Some days the queso is watery and spicy, some days it's glue-like and mild. Always check your order before leaving if taking out, things are frequently...More

My favorite part of the restaurant is filling out the order card. It makes it quick and easy because you customize it right there instead of listing off all the toppings you want or don't. The guac is a super good value and the queso...More
