Was an Easy Place to find & there was only a short wait to be seated. The Wait Staff didn't take long to take mu order & it didn't take long to get to me. The Food had good flavor & was more than enough for the price.

We sat outside and it was sunny and 75, which was really nice. The atmosphere here was great, and the service was just as good. The staff are super friendly and jump on any opportunity to help you , refill your drinks, or refill your chips and salsa. To start, the chips and salsa were great, a slight spice to... More

The atmosphere at Cerritos Grande was fun and friendly. The food was delivered quickly and was enjoyed by my hungry crew. While it was very good, it just couldn't compare to some of the amazing Mexican food we've experienced. That being said, it is definitely a place to consider if in the New Bern area. The mole sauce was a... More

Favorite Mexican Restaurant ever. Great prices & good friendly service. My fave to order are the Chicken Fajitas & their Chili Relenos. Never had better anywhere. Complimentary Chips & Salsa are great too.

It was a late lunch at Cerro Grande, so the good food was welcome. Everything was fresh and well seasoned in the steak fajita filling. The side of rice was warm and tasty. Service was good. The atmosphere is Mexican tacky, letting one know immediately that good food is coming. Cerro Grande is a do over.

The food was very good, service acceptable at best. The place needs updating, from outside we couldn't tell they were open, it was so dark we almost drove away. Then we spotted a glimpse of the open sign.

The food was average and the service was excellent. But the music was so loud we could hardly hear each other. :(
