Ate Expectations - Salt and Lime Cabo Grill


Last Resort: Looking for reasons to try a new venue? Some people think eight is enough. But why stop there?  Inventive California cuisine, Cabo-y laid back kind of feel, Grilled Grapefruit Margaritas! ... Hang in there; we'll get to the rest.  The Salt and Lime Cabo Grill has opened in North Ridge Shopping Center, Raleigh (near St. Jacques, Café Tiramisu).  It marries contemporary Mexican with a Baja California accent and offers a menu to make your taste buds tingle. Owners Ken and Katie Smith are veterans at restaurant management and have already made the Salt and Lime a good place to hang out with friends and a great place to relax for lunch, cocktails and dinner.  Last Resort? ... More like a First Resort.  Check it out!


Border Crossing: Given our recent stretch of crappy weather, it's time for a spring break ... without the morning after. The Salt and Lime is NOT your Cabo tequila popper Tiki bar (i.e. no need to brush up on those limbo moves).  Nor is it tacky Tex-Mex. Think of it as more of a breezy getaway with creative cocktails, excellent tequilas, and epicurean surprises throughout the menu. Start with a specialty or fruit infused Margarita (the Grilled Grapefruit  has become the fan favorite), share the appetizers (a must are the Baja Cabo Rolls), and venture into the entrees. The tacos (Adobe Carnitas, Mahi Mahi, Braised Short Rib) are stuffed with all kinds of goodness. The Cabo Burger  is unique as is the Chipotle Cedar Salmon.  Every dish offers a good mix of specialty and spice.  Now for the "Unexpected Delight" ... the desserts. The Kahulua Flan is topped with amazing espresso caramel, whipped topping, and shortbread cookie pieces. Simultaneously creamy, dense, and smooth; It beckons a return visit all on its own.  Prices are reasonable and meals come out FAST!  MENU

What Moves You?


We love North Carolina and especially what we call The Triangle. And you take care of those you love. So we thought it'd be fun to ask these same questions to different people. You, artist, the business person, the parent, the smarty pants or whatever you call yourself. We all have something that moves us and makes us...well, us.  And when we're moved we want to help. So get a move-on and pick a 'cause' to help someone or something in The Triangle.

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
