This is my favorite Mexican restaurant . We have even been here to celebrate a birthday with a large group. Atmosphere is nice, food is delicious, guac is made right at the table just the way you like it, service is quick and courteous and the drinks are delicious. It is a cozy place where you can have a romantic dinner as well. They also deliver.

The food was not as good as I had expected. Making the guacamole tableside was a nice touch though. Service was slow and the restaurant wasn't crowded.

My fiancé and I always like going here. It's authentic and very reasonably priced. Don't expect a fancy time, because it's a modest time and it has a beer (I believe), but not a liquor license. I really recommend the shrimp nachos or the Chimichangas. Those familiar with the area know there's about 3 sit-down Mexican spots on this street, and this is one to visit. There is outdoor seating in the summer!!!

We've been eating out in New Rochelle for 11 years and somehow never ate here until last night. We are so glad we finally did. The food was well-made and the portions generous. They serve chilaquiles which I love and have not been able to find good ones in ages. You can even get them with steak or chicken. The guacamole is only $8 and made fresh right at the table. Will definitely go back. Margarita Mondays and Taco Tuesdays are calling our name.

By far the best sit-down Mexican I've had in NY. Way better than Vega in Hartsdale, and MUCH more reasonably priced.
Started with Guac at the table. Delicious. And good quantity. Chips and salsa also quite good. Ordered sangria at same time as guac, only negative was our clueless waiter, who didn't quite understand my question, and it wasn't a language problem, and then forgot our drinks on the bar. I had to go get them myself after we finished the guac.
Had the special quesadilla, which was great. And then the taco sampler, 5 mini-tacos for $7 or something. Plenty of food.
S.O. had the Carnitas, nice crisp, not overly fatty. All in all, a great deal and a great meal. I don't give out Excellent ratings easily.
