Ugh. This was for years the best Mexican food around. And really great prices, too. Went back today and was incredibly disappointed. The chips were old, in need of a sprinkle of salt and tasteless. The black bean soup -- once the best in NYC...More

Every Friday (well nearly) we order tacos and guacamole & chips from these guys. They arrive fresh and hot every time. The food is fresh, well prepared and frankly excellent. Occasionally we get nachos or the soup and again, excellent. Sometimes we eat in and...More

Ok. So I really did not think it was possible to mess up mexican food. But this place managed to do so. It was just rather bland tasting. Nothing terrible, just not good. This is the first time a mexican resturant has dissopointed. But to...More
