Eat here all the time, it is our "go to" place, the food is always fresh and the prices are great. After 10pm the burritos are only $5. and often our kids go for their second dinner at that time (teenagers and college son..big appetite). We get the chicken with the 3 sides at least once a week, its a... More

The food prices were decent, but you have to remember is that it is a very small venue. The menu was very long, so it also had BBQ and Peruvian food. The service is also very slow on the weekends, so keep that into consideration. Would I come back...maybe

For it's location from home (less than a mile from our house in Sea Cliff, NY). To a wonderful and flavorful menu. The prices are GREAT. My boyfriend and I ate lunch for under $20.00. What a GREAT FIND!

The best Tex Mex! The food here is amazingly delicious, the service is great and the prices are fair. They have a Tex Mex rewards card that will even send you coupons and birthday gift certificates. We love the roasted pork enchilada platters-yum! Their soups are amazing, their vegi chili is awesome and they have the best salads in town!... More

Small casual nicely decorated Mexican restaurant. What is unique here is that the staff are extremely nice friendly and professional, and trust me I have been here many many times, and there is consistency! The food very very fresh and the taste is amazing! This restaurant is great if you go solo, couples on a date on a low budget,... More

I didn't expect that this place would have a liquor license so I was pleasantly surprised by the delicious red Sangria. Tacos were quite good and authentic. Flavorful food and interesting restrooms. Would go back. Very casual but fun atmosphere.

They give Chipolte a run for the money. Great variety, fresh ingredients and all around great food. Recommend it for a quick lunch or take out. My son loves the midnight 5 dollar burritos!

The girls at work ordered from here the other day. I inquired, as I had never eaten there On the way home I picked up a whole chicken and some sides for family dinner. Although the kids thought the chicken was a little spicy, they knocked off the whole thing! Very tasty, and inexpensive for an entire meal. Only down... More
