Pretty good

My meal was good, it's basic good Mexican styled food. The chips weren't the greatest and seem like they came from a bag rather than being home made (hence the 4 stars instead of 5), but their pork was amazing. The prices were good and I would go back.

Nothing special here. I was a little disappointed with the kids meal. Ordered quesadilla for my kid and it was literally a tortilla filled with a little bit of cheese. It was awfully dry and boring. I felt bad even feeding it to my child. Our mains were pretty average, nothing spectacular - it did the job by filling our... More

Food was very good; especially the guacamole. Very clean. Friendly, professional staff. And my 8 year old granddaughter found a $5 coupon on the back of a Tops Super Market receipt! (A very well-trained, frugal consumer here).

Excellent authentic Mexican food. This isn't Taco Bell. All kinds of traditional meals and some more Americanized versions. Lots of combo choices. Good drink choices. We went with a party of 12 for a birthday and they were super attentive and got the food out quickly and accurately. Very friendly staff. Split our bill about ten ways. Went above and... More

I have been here twice. Excellent food, service, and clean, clean, clean!!! Seems like they are always busy cleaning even when no one is around. The food portions are generous, and not expensive. I got the vegetarian bean burrito, enchalada, and it was great both times. The first time I came, my wife and I got maghararitas. Also excellent.

The margarita I ordered was huge and delicious. The chips and pico de gallo were fantastic. Unfortunately, my entree was terrible. I ordered a vegetarian plate and was very disappointed. The plate consisted of a few tortillas smothered in various sauces without any attempt to garnish or even make presentable. The worst aspect was that the cheese looked and tasted... More

The food was as close to authenticate as I have had anywhere else in the northeast :). Prices were good, staff was great. My partner had the fajitas - he could not finish the order. I had one of the special combination plates. A cheese, chicken and bean burrito. I could not finish my order either. Prices were good.
