  • Best margaritas on the UES. Large portions too - 2 meals in one!
  • Best Mexican in the city - I've searched for a long time and coming from California it hasn't been easy. Carne asada, carnitas and nachos were killer.
  • Mexico City-style quesadillas are fabulous
  • This is the worst "Mexican" food I have ever had...
  • The quesadilla with chicken is delicious and much more than an appetizer. Definitely a must-get. Also, the sour cream almost has a hint of ranch. Unbelievable.
  • Great bartender - makes money margaritas, is attentive and efficient. He is the man.
  • Steak Fajita's portions is quite big and it could feed at least two people. Guac is average. Service quality is ok, but sometimes it is bad at night time.
  • the best bang for your buck is the me, order it and you may as well get a to-go container !
  • Better than the average neighborhood Mexican. Margaritas and Guacamole are terrific.
  • As the name suggests, incredible Mole sauce. Also, best fish tacos on the UES
  • Chorizo quesadilla is phenom
  • Tracy is amazing. Always ask for her!
  • Delicious brunch but HUUUGE portions. Go with friends and plan on sharing.
  • Get the tacos de arrachera!
  • The sangria and nachos are s0o0o0o0 good!
  • Vegetarians beware: Rice is made with chicken stock.
  • Looking good at the new place!! Same great food brand new place!! Awesome
  • Loving the chips and guacamole
  • Huge portions!! I had the shrimp tacos and they were fresh and delicious. We had the guacamole too, the spicy one with onions!
  • Great UES Mexican joint... margaritas are quite strong and food was overall great (nachos just eh, but fajitas were perfect)! Place was packed on a Friday night, about 20 min wait + no space at bar!!!
