RUTHERFORDTON – There’s a new Mexican Restaurant on Main Street in Rutherfordton that I highly recommend you give a try. I have been raving to my friends about the homemade tortilla chips and fresh salsa that doesn’t look like they just opened a jar from the grocery store. Yes, I’m raving about chips and salsa. They alone are worth the trip to Machete, but that’s only the beginning.
First you need to know that the chef makes the tortillas fresh for the entrees as well.

My huge chicken burrito was filled to the max with shredded chicken, freshly made refried beans, cheese, rice, and sour cream. There may be more in there but I ate the leftover half I brought home before writing about it. My lunch companion enjoyed her taco and quesadilla, a large delicious portion as well. We did try their fruit flavored waters as well that complemented their food.

Enjoy the crafts for sale at the storefront, but make your way to the back for some authentic delicious homemade food as soon as you can.


AND try the tres leches cake for desert.
