The chips and salsa - best you ever had. You could make a meal out of that alone. The margaritas are great, but try the Cadillac margarita for a truly superior drink. The food is authentic Mexican because the people cooking the food are Mexican. What a concept! The atmosphere is big, friendly and when the place is full, it is loud, loud, loud, but who cares? Service is excellent and the family that owns the place are some of the loveliest people you'll meet.

Never disappointed. The charm of the place is that its a mom and pop restaurant, with great food. Some days, you will have great service, some days, not so much. But it is never because they are lazy, just incredibly busy.

Never had a bad meal there.

By far the best mexican food I have had in NY state! The flautas were excellent - very flavorful. The prices seemed a little high for mexican food - Floutas, tacos, enchiladas for $12-14 seemed a little pricy but again the taste was excellent. Nice restaurant - great service.
