Very good Mexican food – I am from California AND Mexican and I can honestly say that this is a great restaurant with great food. The service is great; I am not sure how the vegetarian dishes are but the meat ones are great. I have to admit that traditional Mexican food is meat centered...the pork taco locos are amazing, and the nopalitos salad is amazing.
Good Food - Good Prices – We went to this spot last minute and were pleasantly suprised. The food was inexpensive and pretty good.
Delivery or Pick Up – I can't understand how this restaurant has a high rating.. maybe due to the fact that there are NO GOOD Mexican restaurants this side of California, especially not in the upper east side of Manhattan. Still, the food is way below average. My experience with pick up/delivery was particularly awful. I'm vegetarian; I ordered a vegetarian burrito for pick up. By the time I got home with it, I was starving. But it wasn't vegetarian, it was a chicken burrito. I called and asked the restaurant to send what I'd ordered, reiterating vegetarian burrito. A half hour later, I received a burrito with vegetables, along with an unidentifiable meat, perhaps pork or beef. I called and told them I was disappointed and not to send any more food. This was such an incredibly bad experience I was moved to waste more time (while I'm still starving) and write this review.
Awesome Mexican food – I've been searching for a couple of decades for Mexican food as good as this, and I believe I've found it here. Outstanding mole, tamales, enchiladas - it's all authentically done with rich flavors, not just the hot stuff one comes to expect from the average Mexican restaurant. These people know how to cook! Even the rice and beans are above average. It does not matter what part of the city you are traveling from, it is most definitely worth the trip. Take home the leftovers, order a couple extra tamales. You won't regret it.
A hidden treasure in the upper east. My friend and I had the chicken fajitas, which were pretty good. The quacamole and salsa were excellent and the sangria was decent. It was a good value and I will definately be back. My only gripe was that it was filled with loud families with uncontrolled kids running about.
