    Fajita Monday is wonderful. Everything here is delicious, even the chips. Ask for the garlic'y green hot sauce. Also, ask for the red hot sauce. Delicious and flavorful but soooo nose-running spicy.

    Great new little Mexican spot. The Guac is good and the salmon dinner entree is great too. Overall a great value. Prices won't stay that low for long.

    Basic but tasty local Mexican dishes. Casual, good family restaurant. Generous serves and nice outdoor tables in the summer.

    Drinks are overpriced. Portions are on the small side. But, the food is delicious and the service is excellent.

    I love this place. I've never had a bad meal here. If you go for dinner, get the queso fundito!

    I love spicy guac, but I would not recommend their "spicy" guac, go with the medium unless you enjoy a bowl of jalapeños

    I admit, the food was good. But not so good that it was worth the price- wow! Super expensive. Also wait staff sucked/very disorganized on a Friday night. Probably won't return.

    Nothing. I wouldn't even call this Mexican food. I've visited every Mexican on the uws and this is by far the worst. The food was flavorless and overpriced. Good bartender though
