“Better than Mexico!”

Cazuelas Dona Vicky
Ranked #21 of 83 Restaurants in Lenoir
Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 May 2018

This little place is the first really authentic Mexican restaurant I've been to in North Carolina. Every thing looks and tastes like what I've had in both high quality restaurants and market places in Mexico. Tamales--excellent. The masa is perfect and the tamales are stuffed with delicious fillings. The week-end menu includes pozole and menudo. Superb. Plus "real" Coke is available. A delightful find with great food and friendly staff.

We were in the area and was hungry! Search for any restaurants nearby and found this hidden gem. We ordered 5 tacos, 1 tamale, 1 Mexican drink and water and only paid $18 (tip included)!! Tacos were authentic and delicious! Good amount of meat per taco too! Friendly workers. Would come again!

The owner and staff super friendly. Everything on the menu is delicious. And the homemade tamales are wonderful. Sometimes just order them to go, yummy

This little place is a great lunch spot. It is cozy, and has wonderful food that is different than the average Mexican restaurant. The tortillas are hand made in the kitchen where you can see your food prepared. Fast friendly service. My kids love the bottled Coca colas from Mexico. They taste like they did back when I was a kid. Real sugar, no corn Sweetener. The menu is small but there are plenty of good things. My favorite is pollo gorditas.

Yet another amazing meal at Dona Vicky's! First time having Posole. Robin had gorditas. What a feast - So much that we'll have left overs for dinner. Don't know how she does it for the very affordable price. This is the real deal. Nice spice but not too hot. We've traveled in Mexico a lot and her food is exactly why we found there, including in her home town of Patzcurao. Don't be intimidated by real Mexican cuisine because Patricia will guide you through it.
