Beans & Rice for 4

The beans and rice are so flavorful and filling that my vegetarian family will order just these, plus chips and salsa and sides of cheese dip and plantains. We love it! It's a Monday night tradition for us now.

Vegetable Empanada

We went to this amazing restaurant for my grandpa birthday. It was a restaurant that my uncle found and it was a great restaurant! We ordered about ten dishes but the vegetable empana was my favorite. I am not vegetarian, myself, but we were eating with vegetarians so we got the empanadas and they were so yummy. The outside was a perfectly crunchy shell and the inside was flavorful, savory, cheesy. Honestly, I didn't miss the meat because the dish was so flavorful. Very impressed with the food, service, ordering system, COVID precautions, and location! I would definitely go back!

Roasted Chicken Burrito

11/20/20 T# 200436 1st time there with my little sister. The meal was great ! I eat out a lot @ Mexican restaurants but this was much better than anywhere I have eaten before. The Peruvian potatoes and spices, etc in my burrito were excellent ! My sister had the Tinga Tostada and she really liked it and she is hard to please ! ha ! The Guacamole was handmade and wonderful ! Finally, our waitress was very nice. She new the menu very well (all the ingredients) and stopped back @ our table several times to see if we needed anything. I have recommended your restaurant to several of my relatives and friends.

Family Taco Platter For 4

We get the taco platter every Tuesday and everyone including the kids love it. We love the chicken and carnitas. The green rice is a huge favorite and the spicy ranch Sauce exceptional. Thank you O'ya for such a great value and being a part of our weekly family tradition.

The pupusas are so good! Many places do not offer pupusas on their menu so I love that Oh Ya makes them. The sweet plantains and guacamole are my other favorite items to get. This is my go-to restaurant. Can't beat the prices!

We have had the pupusas, tacos, guacamole, and fried plantains. Everything is delicious. Was really excited that a restaurant near by had pupusas and I was not disappointed. Their guacamole is the best around. I love their food, probably my favorite restuarant.

UPDATE TO MY PREVIOUS REVIEW ON 4 Sep 2020: Gave this place another try and the food was amazing! Although the food wasn't the issue last time (other than being cold). We decided to try patio dining versus curbside and the staff was prompt, courteous, and very pleasant. Will definitely be coming back. Thank you for reaching out after my initial review and encouraging us to give it another try. Certainly glad we did. Nice to see a restaurant that really listens to the customer and tries to remedy any issues.

Chocolate Mole Tinga Enchilada

We ordered several items and as usual... never disappointed. We got the family appetizer pack with taquitos, guacamole and cheese dip. It was outstanding. We also got the chicken Tinga mole enchiladas and the Peruvian chicken bowl. All of it is outstanding. We are going to spread it out over a couple of days because we don't want it to end. Also amazing chipotle salsa. Thanks for the delicious food!!! I'd love to add pictures ... so delicious.

Family Taco Platter For 4

I'm not one to leave reviews but I had to after the experience I just had. I've never actually ordered food directly from O'Ya Cantina but I did just eat my boss's leftovers from her family party last night and let me tell you, it was the most delicious and freshest Mexican food I've had in the triangle ever. And it was a day old! Truly a flavorful experience! I can't wait to try everything on the menu. I feel as though this is the beginning of a very long and loving food-relationship. 10/10!

Fish Taco

Fish Tacos at O'Ya are amazing! They have a great sauce that comes with it and the fish is always cooked perfectly! If you have the opportunity, make sure to get the corn tortillas with it as well! Makes for a great meal!

Tinga Tamale

The tinga tamale is amazing. Like eating spicy chicken wrapped in a corn dumpling. Huge portion for the price. Perfect with the spicier than expected pico.

Carnitas Taco

Oh my gosh! These were the best tacos! I am from Texas so we have a lot of mexican/latin choices in Houston. I was visiting my family for the holidays and my son picked up dinner for us from your restaurant. It was fabulous! Can't wait for my next trip back to NC to eat some more of your yummy food!

Cheese Dip

I love cheese dip/queso so much and am very picky about it. However, this one did not disappoint!! It was cheesy, smooth, and creamy just the way I like it. It went very well with the warm and crunchy chips. SO good!!

OH MY GOODNESS I cannot get enough of your food! I also love the quac and cheese dip - I will make that as my dinner! Thanks for much for delicious food items.

I found about this restaurant through Instagram a few weeks ago and ever since my mouth has been watering in anticipation. And wow it was worth the wait and the drive. Best Mexican food that I have had in this area. The taquitos were crispy, flavorful, and had just the right amount of guac and crema on the top. We also had the veggie tostada (Best vegetarian mexican item that I have had anywhere), and the yucca cheese bites (I mean WINNERS, I would go back just for these)! Delicious food. Delicious tostadas. Very kind people. 15/10 experience.

Carne Asada Taco

So delicious! Tried these when COVID first started and O'Ya first opened with no expectations. I was blown away by these tacos. Tender and flavorful steak is hard to find in carne asada tacos but they nailed it! Even being delivered to my house everything stayed well. I've had these tacos several times since and they have been consistently wonderful! Great customer service! Highly recommend!

Family Appetizer Platter

This was outstanding. We bought this along with the chicken Tinga mole dinner. The taquitos were surprisingly filling with not only a delicious meat filling but a masa component like you would have in a tamale. They were crispy and covered in delicious guacamole, creama and salsa. This is a perfect appetizer for any occasion. It came with a large container of guacamole and a large container of cheese dip complete with chips. We like the Taquitos so much that we ate all of them. Will have the main entrées tonight for dinner. Very excited.

Our family of 5 has had this dinner multiple times and we love it. We have tried the tinga, carnitas, and carne asada. Love them all, but our favorite is the carnitas.

Carne Asada Taco

I'm not normally a big meat eater but the carne asade taco is delicious. We've ordered most of their tacos at this point and this one is definitely the crowd favorite.
