Mexican flavor captured
By NANCY ATKINSON
Mexico is atmosphere a softly strumming guitar
in a dimly lit clay-orange room and the smell of
toasted corn and fruity full wine. It is an atmosphere
many Americans love and many duplicate north of
the border. Five restaurants in Chapel Hill cater to
this love of Mexican atmosphere and its spicy, cheesy
food, offering in their own ways a unique version
of surroundings and taste.
At 403 W. Rosemary St., the 14-year-old Tijuana
Fats is the oldest of Chapel Hill's Mexican
restaurants. With its more rustic dim interior,
barteRdrNancy Howard said, "The atmosphere is
to me so much more relaxed than so many other
places. It's fun."
Covering a variety of Mexican specialties. Fats has
four different menus: lunch, dinner, late-night and
The other well established Mexican restaurant,
Papagayo, also prides itself on its food and setting.
"We make everything from scratch, even down to
the mayonnaise," said manager Robyn Miller.
Specialties include chimichangas, stuffed chilies and
quesadillas, a wheat tortilla filled with sauteed
vegetables, almonds and cheese. Dinner prices range
from $4-$9, but smaller portions at lunchtime are
$3-$4.50. Open weekdays for lunch 1 1 :30 a.m.-2 p.m.

a year old. With a weekday lunch from $3-$4 and
dinners from $4-$5, manager Shelley Keller speaks
highly of her restaurant.
Everything is fresh, and different vegetable dishes
are offered all the time. Keller said, "We can have
anything from ratatouie to corn and green chilies
to broccoli in a cheese sauce." Those who enjoy hot
Mexican. food will enjoy anything with Magdalena's
special green chili sauce on it.
The Mexican Underground, at 149V2 E. Franklin
St. and the first Mexican take-out restaurant in
Chapel Hill, opened this summer. Now people can
enjoy Mexican food without sit-down dinner fr.lls.
"We're trying to be more a fast service place and
serve within 5-10 minutes. We've really worked hard
to fix the place up," said manager Don McLellan.
Located where Harrison's used to be, the restaurant
opens at 1 1 a.m. and closes at 1 2 p.m. Sunday through
Wednesday and at 1 a.m. on other nights.
The newest addition to the Mexican food roster
is the Fastbreak Mexican Delivery and Restaurant.
The Fastbreak is out on Airport Road with free
delivery to UNC, Chapel Hill and Carrboro. Serving
seven days a week beginning at 7 a.m., they offer
