We had tacos and burritos. Tacos were large portions and burrito normal size portion. Nice enough but not fabulous. Services is quick however getting seated could have been better. The male attending to us decided mid way through dealing with us to deal with the people behind us when we were 1st. After talking to them while we waited he... More

This place never gets old to me, I love to come here when i want some good Mexican food an inexpensive drinks while hanging out with friends or family. Just a heads up sometimes the wait can be long depending on the time you go an how the weather is outside.

Personally I don't like Mexican food. But I like some people who do so that's how I ended up eating there twice before. Let's just say that the third time all I ate was a few tequilas, I have learned my lesson. The service was cordial at first, but deteriorated soon after that. It's not really a bar so the... More

I only get the chicken burrito and have always enjoyed the meal. Unfortunately, it's in NYC, so the price is pretty high for the lunch special, but it does come with chips and a drink. I did try the Chicken Quesadilla and enjoyed that as well.

We stumbled across this place by chance and it was probably our best meal in NYC: great food, great atmosphere, friendly service, tasty cocktails and best of all, it was extremely good value. If you want a lively place to eat with generous portions of Mexican food I don't think this place can be bettered. The endless chips and salsa... More

It is a little bit expensive but it is typical manhattan prices. I got the nachos. All in all it was average. I had to add meat to the dish for 3 dollars. The nachos with the added meat was pretty good. It had everything you need except some added salsa. It was also very filling so it definitely kept... More

Great nachos!! I come to this place for the nachos and drinks only!! The price can't be beat! Don't come here on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday night because you will have to wait over 30 minutes for a table. If you come any other time, the wait will be under 10 minutes. I come all the way from Queens and... More

If the weather is nice, you are probably better off sitting outside if you can b/c it is very noisy inside and it is not a place you can have a meal and a good conversation. It's a fun place with really good food and drinks, but the noise level makes it uncomfortable for me to enjoy having dinner there.... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
