Everyone we saw there ordered the fajitas, and though I am sure they are wonderful, people should branch out and try some of the other more interesting menu items. We have had nothing that hasn't been wonderful here. Be adventurous!

The Prickly Pear is upscale, gourmet Mexican food that has to be tasted to be truly appreciated. We had dinner on their patio, which is right on Lake Norman, and watched the moon come up over the water. It was a warm, clear night to appreciate their beautiful food presentations, excellent service & recommendations, delicious sangria choices & dessert tray. Never a disappointing dinner at Prickly Pear!!

Food is outstanding. Servers are friendly and very accommodating. You can't beat sitting outside by the lake on a warm summer evening drinking sangria!

From Our Editors

On Val Panizzut's first visit to his wife’s Mexican hometown, the co-owner of The Prickly Pear vowed he would name his first restaurant after the delicious fruit borne from cacti. Today, the fruition of that fruit-inspired idea offers expansive views of Lake Norman from its generous windows or patio seats, as well a menu of Mexican cuisine. Not content with just offering traditional tacos and burritos, the kitchen crafts modern Mexican dishes that have earned it numerous local press mentions. They pair the usual flavors of cotija cheese, chipotles and cilantro with, for example, fruits such as pear, mango, and pineapple, all in an effort to add savory, piquant, or sweet depth to shrimp dishes and adobo-rubbed chicken. To augment the adventurous atmosphere, live musical acts entertain guests on Thursday and Sunday nights—but they never say in advance exactly where in the restaurant they’ll hide as they play.
