If you’re in search of fresh and authentic food and margaritas, check out Virgil’s Original Taqueria, Downtown Raleigh’s taco and tequila spot.
Tucked in Salisbury Street below LevelUp Retro Arcade Bar, Virgil’s has a relaxed, modern atmosphere with inside, outside and bar seating. The menu is Mexican inspired cuisine with a southern twist. As soon as you walk in, you’ll agree it’s a hidden gem: everything is high-quality and unique, including the decor. Stop in for lunch, dinner or late-night on the weekends.
I order the queso appetizer, fried avocado and al pastor tacos, and No. 126 margarita.
