Let me start off by saying, as a family we are so sad that this restaurant is 3 hours from our house. We would visit this place once a week if it were closer and sing its praises to all our neighbors, it is that good. We are constantly looking for authentic food, and a Park Ranger from Pisgah National... More

The food was good and they were very accommodating. They didn't have ground beef tacos so I went with a quesidilla but asked for a corn shell vs a flour and filled my request. The waiter spoke to the cook and the cook said since the corn shells were smaller than the flour they'd have to give me two. Which... More

I've been to Quixote a couple times with my family and every time we've had a great experience! The food tastes like it's prepared by a Mexican grandmother with many years of experience! The wait staff is always friendly and welcoming, on two separate visits they brought us out a free sample of a food we were curious about. The... More

Checked out Quixote after looking for a restaurant in Brevard, NC. It was recommended on Trip Adviser. The food was great. It was a Sunday evening so not much of a crowd. The food was great, the beer cold. The wait staff was pleasant.

Was thankful that we decided to to yelp this establishment and chose to eat here. We got the homemade guacamole as our appetizer. It was wonderful! We had fajitas for two as our main course. Full of vegetables and meat, plenty to take home as well. We were greeted promptly by our server as we set close to the lovely... More

Went to Quixote on a Thursday night. Arrived around 7:45. Immediately, the owner welcomed me and told me about the restaurant. As good as the food was, the hospitality was even better. However, I DO find it easy to engage in conversation. I had a "tortilla style" soup (named differently at Quixote). It had a delicious broth base, corn nuggets,... More

It had been a year since trying this restaurant. I told my out of town business friend that we should meet there for authentic and upscale Mexican. He is a salesman who lives in Atlanta, has traveled widely and eaten well. He and I were both impressed with the food, the energetic waiter, the skill of the bartender, and the... More

Nothing get's the appetite roaring like hiking the trails. Even better Quixotes is open on Sunday! The quaint little establishment is nestled just off the main road and welcomes pets in the outdoor seating area. We have a Husky and it was no problem. The staff is very friendly and the food a homerun. They have good selection of draft... More

We live in Brevard and have eaten at Quixotes many times. Authentic dishes, warm family- owned atmosphere , excellent service - every time! Not your typical Mexican restaurant. Love the fajitas, mole, seafood, soups, sangrias, beers and salsas. Often they offer complimentary tastes of their wonderful soups. If you are visiting the area, don't miss Quixotes!

It can be difficult to find good food in Brevard on a Sunday evening, but this place fits the bill. Great atmosphere, great service, and great food. We had the chips and salsa, which ended up including not only homemade salsa, but also a great cucumber dip. We also tried a couple of different tacos, and although both were good,... More
