Everything here is good with fresh ingredients. It's a little hole in the wall and good luck finding the door to get in. Don't expect fine dining or sometimes at lunch even a place to sit. Just order a burrito to go and thank me later. It's as big as your forearm and rolled perfectly. Yum.

Authentic Mexican food for sure. Burritos are amazing. No matter what you order, it will have a lot of meat, and its just a great place to fellowship and eat.

Cosmic Cantina is one of my favorite places to get food from in Durham. If I'm in the area and getting a meal elsewhere, I'll still stop by Cosmic and pick up food for later--even soggy nachos, yum! This place is great for people who eat meat and for vegetarians, people with large and small appetites. The menu has grown substantially over the last 15 years.

This place has the best burrito in the Triangle, hands down. Chicken chimichangas are also phenomenal. This is my go to when the fridge is empty and the stomach is growling. Call your order ahead of time and they'll have it ready in 10 minutes. Only downside is the homeless guys that chill at the entrance.
