Any restaurants serving Machaca in Raliegh, Durham or Chapel Hill?

With the improvements in local mexican food, does anyone know of a place that offers Machaca*? It is a shredded beef dish that I dearly miss since moving from CA. When scrambled with eggs, fried onions and serrano chilis it's wonderful comfort food.

* The name Machaca is used in the Southern part of Mexico and in the northwestern state of Sonora, and ‘Machacado’ in the North.

Anyone seen it on a local menu?

    I just noticed that Greg Cox mentions machaca being on the menu at Los Cuates(4524 Old Wake Forest Road) in an Epicurean column from a few months ago.

        Interesting... "machada" in Venezuela is essentially the same thing. Usually, or at least my introduction to it was as a stuffing for arepas in Merida in the Andes. Loved it!
