“Fast Mexican food in the middle of Stamford”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

comparatively inexpensive, but reasonable quality. A number of typical dishes, and some locally crafted. You order at the counter and they bring the food to you. Not fancy. we've been there a couple of times. hard to spend more than $10 or $12 per person. near the theaters; off street parking in both public and private lots. Street parking metered and usually hard to come by.

“Good lunch spot”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

The food was decent, typical fast North of the border quick Mexican. Nothing exciting but well priced, good selection of salsas to add some flavor.

“So yummy we ate there three times!”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

After reading reviews on trip advisor, we tried this place for dinner on our first night in Stamford.-we wish we had eaten lunch the first day too, instead of where we did eat!
Really cute, order at the counter kind of place, all made to order. In our three visits to Picante(in two and a half days) we tried the chicken quesadillas, fish tacos, steak tacos, chicken tacos and pork tacos as well as the guacamole/cheese dip starter. All of them were good! My husband really liked the cheese dip and the quesadilla, my favorite was the chicken tacos. The salsa bar was really nice, and included chopped cilantro and lime(a staple for us in mexican food). I love spicy and they had some sauces I couldnt handle-so read the signs-if it says fire-it means fire! Heat factor aside, they all had great flavor. Very reasonable pricing for what you get.
We cant wait to go back there!

“Quick, Very Casual, Decent Food”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Food was good and reasonable. Is a very small casual place.
Mostly neighborhood and locals looking for a quick meal. Not a place for a first date.
