Very Fresh

Tried the restaurant based the many favorable reviews. The food was fresh and very good. Disappointed that they did not serve shrimp anymore. Ended up with the beef tacos and was very satisfied with the taste and value. The atmosphere was fairly plain and slightly dark, it is in a strip mall after... read more

Food and service was fine, wish there were some chef-inspired go to burritos instead of having to choose each topping separately.

My company recently moved to the area and I looked on-line to see what places were around for eating. I came across Ghost Chili Mexican Grill, saw that it rated #2 of the best restaurants in Islandia and read the reviews, which were fantastic. I decided I had to try it. I went a few days later and thought the... More

...that blows the chains away. It's a little joint in a strip mall off Exit 57 of the Long Island Expressway. The food is fresh, fresh, fresh....the help is pleasant...the portions are very generous and it's reasonable. The hot sauce is REALLY hot! There are some seats and a big TV if you're not taking out. There are even some... More

This was close to my hotel, so I popped in. Basically, a Qdoba or Chipotle like setup. Burritos, tacos, etc. I did get the ghost chili salsa - whoa! Fun to try, but use with caution.

Stopped by with some co-workers, had the grilled chicken soft tacos which were very good, fresh ingredients and very generous portions. Definitely recommend it.

I have eaten a lot of burritos in my time but when I found Ghost chili there burritos are twice the size as Chipolte and a lot fresher than there's and I don't know how but they are less money on everything. Absolute the best now open more restaurants and I will eat there every day. Great job!
