  • My experience at Calavera was extremely good. Tucked away on the corner of Blount and Davie, Calavera is on the edge of the business section of downtown.
  • Best ethnic food in Raleigh, hands down.
  • Can't beat a shot of Don Julio 1942
  • The list of 34 tequilas is helpfully divided into categories for blanco, reposado and aejo and includes such rarities as Patron Platinum and Don Julio 1942.

  • Upstairs great for big groups. Cilantro Jalapeo marg and habanero empanada are amazing. Cant go wrong here
  • Every single empanada we've tried has been delicious. I think the chicken tinga is my favorite. And for dessert: King of Kong is a must!
  • Great lunch specials. Three empanadas and a drink for $7.99. Ask for specials as they sometimes have new items notion the menu.
  • Caipirinhas + the Al Pastor + the Havana Jerk + the Holy Frijoles + either the King Kong or the Key Lime = the best dinner ever
