"Cactus Rose Mexican Restaurant in Charlotte, NC"
You have got to visit CACTUS ROSE MEXICAN RESTAURANT next time you are near Charlotte NC. It is AMAZING!! Recipes are all from years and years of family from Mexico to Los Angles to Fayetteville NC to charlotte. A lot of history in this food and family. The chili con carne is one of the things you'll never get anywhere else. Not to mention the ALL homemade menu. Made fresh everyday and authentic. When they left Fayetteville NC and settled in Charlotte NC it was quit the uproar over where we were going to get get Pedro's chips and salsa, beef quesadillas, chili con carne burritos enchilada style.....and so much more. The history is fascinating and has been published in the paper more than once. The matriarch Pedro Osornio was in the military at Ft. Bragg and while there he realized how muched he missed his mama's cooking because there was nothing even close to it here. He went back to Los Angeles and loaded up his family and a tortilla machine and headed back to NC in 1961 to open his first restaurant. The rest is really HISTORY Please take a look at this amazing family and the food no one has yet to duplicate. Thank you Renee A.
