Last Saturday night we arrived at Rancho Taquileria at 6:35 pm since a nearby restaurant had not seated our party of 4 by 6:30pm, despite a 6 pm reservation. The lively music beckoned us in and we were seated in 10 minutes. We had a pitcher of sangria and a margherita or two, which hit the spot, while we munched on tortilla chips and salsa. Our delicious entrees were fresh as could be and were served in no time, even though the restaurant was packed. The Chilean Sea Bass over black beans, mushrooms and corn was terrific. I also recommend the Carne a La Brasa which was tasty skirt steak served with onions, guacamole and Mexican rice and beans. The Rancho Steak Fajitas were also scrumptious. We finished by 7:35 pm and easily made our 8 pm show. We plan on returning so we can also try some appetizers and desserts with our meal when we are not so rushed for time. This great restaurant made our evening a perfect date.

We went on a Thursday evening and it was hard to get a place for three in one of the tiny restaurants around, so we stepped in. It was very noisy and we also had to speak load on our table. The taste of the food was average, but the size of the portions was really small and he price was above average. We had the impression that there were a lot of tourists and no people who live in NY. Definitely, not worth to go.

We were actually walking up the Ave to find a different restaurant but decided to pop in here instead.
Glad we did!
Really nice bistro buzz atmosphere and great Mexican food, though too much to finish.
Oh yeah, and my wife loved the frozen marguerites!

Best Mexican food and cocktails we have ever tasted. Recommend the Fajitas and Strawberry Margarita. Guacamole starter as a share was perfect. Visited for my birthday and it was wonderful. Do visit...

Great value Happy hour from 12-7.

Just had booze.

Service with a smile from the bartender would have given it a 4.
