Las Olas Mexi-Q Grill is a relatively new but popular restaurant that is a sister restaurant to Wilmington’s acclaimed surfer hang-out, K-38. Found in the heart of the Mayfaire area along Military Cutoff Road, this Fresh Mex establishment is known for bold flavors, good eats, and that signature laid-back surfer vibe.
The menu goes above and beyond the Mexican food basics, with unique dishes that are infused with southern flavors. Diners can chow down on big plates of BBQ nachos, spicy tater tots, or baby back ribs as an appetizer, and then satisfy a huge Mexican food craving with a range of inspired quesadillas, salads, street tacos, and “Low Down” entrees like hickory smoked pulled pork, Low Country fried shrimp, and Cowboy Brisket. All of the southern food shines, but it’s the combination of southern and Mexican cuisine that really inspires patrons to return again and again. Order a side of Mexican street corn, (a local favorite), and feast on pulled pork, Baja fish, or salsa verde street tacos to truly see how amazing these flavors can be combined. When washed down with an ice cold margarita or beer, new diners will agree that Las Olas Mexi-Q Grill is taking Fresh Mex cuisine to new and tasty heights.
