Authentic Mexican Food

This is a must try restaurant if you really know authentic Mexican food. Sure it's a hole in the wall type of place with a handful of tables but the food is great and we'll priced. Service is fast and friendly. Gotta try the guacamole, tacos and Mexican sodas. Sure you can try the other mexican... read more

The place is down a side alley off of Nassau street. It is homemade Mexican. There is only electric heaters because it looks like it was an enclosed porch , so very cold in the winter. Decorated in typical Mexican style. Staff very nice. Outside dining. Chairs a little wobbly and could use some nice Mexican music and more heaters.... More

Authentic basic Mexican mood, a bit pricey for what it is. Nice service, neighborhood feeling, definitely not upscale.

Picked up lunch here the other day and had modest expectations from this small place. They were met though I wouldn't go looking for fine Mexican dining. I ordered their signature mole chicken and enjoyed it; the meat was not the most tender but was compensated for by the sauce and decent tortillas. I chose as accompaniment an exotic Mexican... More

Nice atmosphere with friendly staff. Food was, sadly, just ok. We may try again. It was crowded and people seemed comfortable.

For quick lunch or dinner, this small café is a great value. If they have just made tamales they're wonderful. if you're alone there's counter service in addition to half a dozen tables.ice

There is no other review I've felt more compelled or even obligated to write than this one for Taste of Mexico in the Princeton Shopping Center. If this is what "authentic" Mexican food is supposed to taste like I never want to go back to Mexico! I have been working in the Princeton Shopping Center for 7 months and this... More

Went last night to Taste of Mexico off of Nassau Street in Princeton - just ok. Prices are good and the service was ok but the food - not so good. Partially cold entree with weird tasting ice tea. Place has pretty much no atmosphere either. Three of us finished our meals, but all agreed they would not be back.... More

The food is fresh, made to order, and not greasy. I've been only to the Harrison Street (Princeton Shopping Center location) and it's a small place. Maybe 5 tables and a counter. Outdoor seating in good weather. The fresh guacamole is amazing. I love the chicken fajitas, which include spinach, broccoli, as well as the standard peppers and onions.
