    Some of the best wait service I've ever experienced anywhere. Very good dishes and on Mondays $5 margaritas all night. If you're not going here I really question your decisions.

    Went here on my first date and the ambiance with the dimly lit tables and the tantalizing menu made it the perfect place to relax and talk! Haven't been back since, but I'm dying to go back soon! :)

    Go in for the lunch specials and complimentary baby margarita - stay for the party atmosphere! Don't be tricked into ordering the guac as a starter though - a teeeny bowl is $8!

    Love the $5 margaritas. Bartenders are quick and attentive and chips and salsa are muy bueno! Wrong part of town for good Mexican food tho. I could eat it happily but it ain't the real thing.

    The most amazing entree ever: on the Chef's favorite, Bistec a la Veracruzana, grilled steak w/ shrimp in cream sauce!! Amazing!!! Also, Gotta go with a La Mama on the rocks!!!

    Surprisingly fresh salsa and a chef who really loves shrimp-based dishes. Also the art theme is "Stalinist Propaganda Meets Poster Advertising a Nightclub"

    Chimichanga is ridiculously decadent, but the REAL culinary orgasm can be found in pork Enchiladas Suizas. That salsa verde - alone - is worthy of a round two or three. Again and again. #holyshit

    Hell's Kitchen Hot spot. Busy most nights. Diverse crowd, LGBT, overhead music, and great frozen drinks. Try the chorizo, and guacamole for appetizers. You won't be disappointed.

    Its a LOT of food, definitely can share. Enchiladas are ok, tostadas are great! Margaritas come in regular and large, no pitchers. Do the guac

    The tacos are yummy and if you ask nicely you can get one a-la-carte. Also be sure to peep the bestiality mural on the north wall.

    My absolute favorite restaurant in NYC. The restaurant at 51st and 9th is where I always go. Be sure to get the red sangria...so so delicious!

    As a Texan who is pretty picky when it comes to Mexican I must say this ranks in top 5 in NYC. Great margaritas, real salsa (!!!) and tasty fajitas.

    Perfect place to eat at after you leave your coat in the car traveling from NJ and Long Island. I like to make it even better by brining three screaming girls.

    I thought it would be a crappy Mexican restaurant but it is outstanding! Both great frozen margaritas and food! End with fried ice cream

    The massive margaritas. Many flavor options. Decent Mexican food. Very tight seating and dark lighting. DJ was great!

    Their lights were clearly designed by Hollister, and you'll celebrate a few birthdays waiting for your food, but it's delicious and so is the staff.

    Super dark, but good crowd. Tasty margaritas (try watermelon) on Mondays for $5! Attentive and friendly servers.

    The strongest frozen margarita I've had, making it a must to cool off from the heat of the city in summertime.

    Andrew and I went on our first date here, and are still coming back for the giant frozen margaritas. They have decent Mexican food, good service, and lots of Hell's Kitchen gay boys.

    Food is very solid (I think they have the best salsa in this area) and brunch menu is my favorite.

    The crispy chimichanga is to die for. Very filling and delicious with the side of rice and beans.

    The Pollo a la Parrilla (w/black beans) is good and you'll feel less guilty about the all the chips & margaritas. ;)

    The Mexican chicken soup is great for a chilly winter evening. The jalapeños adds some nice heat.

    Weekend brunch is a bargain at $12.95 including margarita, screwdriver, mimosa, bloody maria, or tequila sunrise.

    Be a man; order the Mama Margarita. Remember you get a free Baby Margarita with the lunch special, so drink that first.

    Chips & salsa are bottomless... (Unlike Hell's Kitchen, but that's a different story.) And they're laced with crack. Gotta be.
