In the eight and a half years that I have lived in New york, I have rarely had really good mexican food, but this place was pretty amazing. When you order a margarita in the beginning, it usually sets the pace for the whole meal. If the margarita is good, then the rest of the meal is usually good. I have been to places where the margaritas suck and the food that followed was always terrible. I had the mole enchiladas here and they were awesome!

Best Mexican food in the city! We will definitely go back every time we visit New York. Apart from the food, it is also a great place to just stay and enjoy some sangria or mojitos.

This place was recommended by a friend who used to live in the neighborhood. I love local places so my wife and me decided to give it a try. The room is cute and kitchy with lots of mexican artisian pieces hung about and a very cool day of the dead mural painted along one entire wall of the restaurant. The staff was very welcoming and informal and made us feel right at home. The food had LOTS of flavor without being overwelming or pretencious. Just a really fun pleasant experience in NYC.

Dollar for dollar the best Mexican food you can get in New York City. A Mexican Blues bar -- hot food, cold beer, excellent tunes. Does it get any better than that?
