Local Tex Mex

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

I have been going here since 2001. This is some of the best Tex-Mex style food around, especially for a (primarily) take out place. The menu is fairly large, everything always tastes fresh. One of the few places where I can say i haven't had a bad meal. Not much in the way of decor if you decide to stay,... More

The food's a good gringo varient on mexican food. Reasonable prices and a varied menu. The place is clean and hygienic. Spices are severely compromised which cuts the heart out of Mexican food but a good selection of sauces are available. Take out and delivery service is horrible. Deliveries take forever and something is alway screwed up or missing.
