Delicious

I love this place. Every time I have a chance, I go there. The food is always delicious, the free desert is a great idea, and a free shot of tequila is always welcome. The only suggestion that comes to my mind is, to expend the menu with a vegetarian dishes, because as of now there is only one...

I had the chimichangas which were very good my wife had the chalupas which she did not like. The shells were greasy tasting and soggy. Overall, you do get bottomless chip and salsa basket, free desert AND... More

The service at this restaurant has to be some of the finest I've ever experienced. We practically walked through the front door to our table as the host greeted us and staff raced to prepare the table and place highchairs in a whirlwind of motion. The second, and I mean the second, we were seated salsa and chips were at... More

Can't say enough about the staff...friendly, efficient and attentive. Our dinners were served within five minutes and were delicious. The Mexican music, decor and great food made the evening wonderful. We will... More

We love this place, the second time there and I didn't think they could top the first time but they did it was fantastic. We were 10 minutes early for our reservation and they kept apologizing that it was not ready. They gave us free appetizers for our wait and the staff was fantastic. Very friendly and authentic and they... More

The service was impeccable...from the free salsa and chips to the free deserts...It was all amazing. Even had the owner come to... More

This restaurant serves the best Mexican food in all of New York. The Enchiladas are outstanding, as are the steaks, burritos,pork and chicken. The Salsa is fantastic, made fresh and in house. The service is spectacular, you wait for nothing. The place is as clean as it gets with professional wait staff.
