This was our first restaurant upon visiting New York. It was in walking distance to our hotel and having travelled 24 hours to get to New York we were really looking forward to good Mexican food.

Having never written a review, I am generally too easy going to care, I felt compelled to after visiting this restaurant. The food was highly average, having been on holiday for 6 weeks and had loads of mexicans, this was the worst. Hardly any meat, not enough crockery etc. The service was my main complaint, horrific. Unfriendly, rude, spilt food... More

You probably wouldn't notice this place right off the bat but I'm glad friends and I stopped in. They have a large selection of margaritas and sangria and the steak fajitas were great. They were able to substitute regular flour tortillas for lettuce wraps which was a big help to me. The atmosphere was fun, although a bit crowded. The... More

Chips and salsa were good. Atmosphere was very festive and nice. Food, however, was very disappointing. Amy's has better microwaveable Mexican dishes. Service was sub-par, prices were OK. Be prepared for a "stomach ache" the next morning (note the euphemism in quotes). This restaurant has a few locations, the one I went to was 116 8th ave and is CASH... More

The title of this review is only a slight exaggeration. The food stinks here - no ands, ifs or buts about it. Not a single positive thing to say about the grub and the waiters/waitresses are generally lazy. If you're really hungry for Mexican food and you're in the Tribeca area, try Centrico or the Little Place. Both of them... More

This is the best margarita place in TriBeCa. The margaritas are delicious with the right amount of alcohol and the complimentary chips/salsa are yummy. This is an excellent option if you are in the mood for margaritas! My favorites are strawberry and coconut.

Very popular Tex-Mex in the East Village. Food is standard Tex-Mex--nothing remarkable. Large portions & reasonably priced though--good for families. Service is friendly.

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
