Having grown up in the deep South, I can say I've eaten my share of hushpuppies. The FB has the best I've ever tasted. Highly recommended if you prefer: fresh fish (Yucatan Mexican) child friendly huge portions neighborhood bar friendly service It's located on King Blvd. (formerly Airport Rd.) behind Hunam's.
I recently visited the Flying Burrito. I grew up in Chapel Hill and we ate there often it was a staple in our family. The atmosphere is different now. The food was still great and the service is better than before. We loved the food.
The Flying Burrito and I go way back, as my dad used to take me here when I was a kid. He would get a drink at the bar, and the bartender would always give me a little, plastic statue of a bull, a novelty item that came with the beer. Ever since then I've been hooked.
While my love for the Flying B started over plastic bulls, it has since grown from an appreciation of their unique south-of-the-border dishes. Their flavors and taste combinations are very creative, using a lot of fresh vegetables and seafood inspired ingredients.
I love any of their seafood tacos, but the last time I went I tried their Carborro enchiladas.
They were awesome! Two corn tortillas with squash, zucchini, broccoli and carrots, smothered in green chili and cheese served with a side of rice and mashed sweet potatos (something I'd never tried before but was quite tasty!).
They've got some good (and local) beers on tap and have an excellent outdoor patio that makes for a perfect spot to enjoy your meal when the weather is nice.
Overall the Flying B might be my favorite Mexican place in Chapel Hill. Good food, good service and a relaxing, enjoyable atmosphere.
I went today after almost a 4 year break in between visits. While I don't remember anything about the last time I was here - today was more memorable. The food is great! We had lunch here -- great deal, 2$ tacos. These tacos were excellent. Almost gourmet? The guacamole and salsa were tasty as well. I will be making a return visit to try the other tacos.
My friends and I attended the Flying Burrito last night for the first time in ages. After reading reviews on here and knowing about the new ownership we were a little skeptical. Upon entering it looks very different! Much more clean and contemporary. While the menu had changed, and some of my favorites were no longer on there, it still had a lot of what we were looking for. The Flying Mayan is still there and still sensational! We also tried the Flying Wild Mushroom and the Flying Catfish. Both were very good and the mushroom was packed full of flavor. I would recommend either of those to anyone. They also offer a variety of wonderful tapas. We tried the steak tacos, salmon enchiladas, and spinach quesadilla. The quesadilla was quite large for being on their tapas menu, but everything was very impressive. We finished off with one of their dessert specials, a guava and cream cheese empanada. Very good! The staff was very attentive and seemed to anticipate everything we needed. We will all be going back there again!
I live right across the street so when I'm feeling some good baja (I suppose would be the best way to describe it) food and a beer, I walk over to Flying burrito. I actually have yet to try anything other than the tacos, because they're only 2.50 during happy hour. The owner is nice and friendly, as is the bar staff. But the tacos are very different and imaginative from any others in this area, oh and delicious, did I mention that? Cheers.
I absolutely love the food at Flying Burrito. Their margaritas are excellent! Unfortunately majority of the time I take someone to this restaurant I receive horribly slow inconsistent service. One entirely gross thing that is hard to get are the flies during the summer months. They really need to do something about this. You have to fight off anyonying flies while you eat. Pretty dis gusting. My husband refuses to go here & unfortunately my visits are becoming less & less.
The Flying Burrito has had it's moments in the past two years, and I'd had many hit or miss experiences. But, recently, I've been going for lunch, and if you live or work in the Chapel Hill area, you really shouldn't miss their $2 taco menu. The vegetables are tasty, tortillas soft, chicken tacos juicy and flavorful. Heaping portions of sides like mashed sweet potatoes, black beans or Yucatan slaw are just $2. At all my recent visits, the manager has been friendly and helpful, visiting our table and saying goodbye when we left. The food is flavorful, plentiful and inexpensive. Definitely don't count The Flying Burrito out.
I went there when it first re-opened and the service was atrocious. I decided to give it another chance last night. The service was mechanical but efficient -- until the food never came out. When I asked what was going on, the food instantly came out -- stone cold. No explanations and no apologies. When I decided to get up and walk out without eating, the waitress came back and asked if she could reheat the food, obviously knowing that it had been sitting in the kitchen for at least a half hour. I kept walking. I'll never go back.
I loved the old Flying Burrito. This place doesn't begin to compare!
