    Possibly one of the best spots in Astoria for Mexican food. On top of the the classic margaritas are solid. I'm not a fan of their frozen though.

    The meat is so juicy and yummy, not dried out like other places. Try the lengua taco! Definitely coming back here again.

    The Pollo ala Méxicana is absolutely amazing. That broth is so good, especially during cold months. Come for the food, not the atmosphere.

    Cheap mexican spot with a rare menu item: the pambazo, a potato and chorizo sandwich drenched in chili sauce.

    Ordered delivery to our hotel and it was DELICIOUS! The food got here fast, it was still hot when we got it, and the portions are huge. Very reasonably priced.

    Chorizo taco is very good. The enchiladas in mole sauce is very filing. Share with someone & order 2 beef & 2 chicken to change things up a bit. Very affordable!

    The Pambazo: There's nothing subtle about a potato and chorizo sandwich on a bun painted with chili sauce. But damn does it satisfy.

    Slooooow service. They charge you if you ask for more salsa w/ your complimentary chips & they charge you if you want to wrap your food up to take home. The food is decent though.

    Really disappointed with the burrito. The chicken was dry, the rice was not well spiced, and they put way too much meat. It was also as big as 2 large burritos. Wait staff was nice, though.

    Try the cheese tacos! They're amazing! The cheese is lightly fried till its crispy, filled with guacamole, cilantro and onions. The horchatas are delicious too!

    This place is horrible. How can you call this authentic Mexican food? Everything we ordered was salty or tasteless. Huge fail.

    Please define "authentic"Tacos are solid. Nothing special, and a tad expensive, but in NY, they are above average. Pork anything is good here. The flan is also alright.

    I love their breakfast! Huevos ala Mexicana with chorizo! It comes with rice and beans and tortillas. You can smother it in hot, green salsa. That and a cafe con leche are a delicious belly-buster. =)

    While the food is good, this is not authentic mexican food. I suggest going to sunset park in brooklyn for some true authentic mexican food

    Terrible service, waitstaff are miserable. Food was terrible, greasy, undercooked. Margaritas were watered down, chips were stale.
