    Good Upper West Mexican - chips, burrito, frozen margaritas. Nothing earth shattering but a nice option.

    Love the quesadilla (both shredded chicken and shrimp). Also a big fan of the chimichanga. Avoid the margaritas, sadly.

    Do your best to ignore 80's UWS architecture. If you can't get a cafe seat make way to the bar for kick @$$ ritas and comp chips w/ tangy tomatillo. The beef nachos are an authentic best & must try!!!

    Service was extremely slow, food was overpriced for the portions and quality of food we received. The only plus was that the frozen margaritas were STRONG. Wouldn't go back here again.

    The service here is slow even when empty. They also aren't really kid friendly. I only come here because it is close to my apartment. If you are looking for good Mexican on uws go to cafe Frida.

    Service was fast and great. The chips arrived nice and warm, and the homemade corn tortillas made the Al Pastor tacos that much better. Last but not least the Perfect Margarita is simply epic!

    Chicken fajita & strawberry margarita = delish! Loved their free chips (the warm, crunchy, toasted kind) w/ both red & green salsas, and how they don't mind refilling the chips & salsa at all

    Worst chicken tacos I've ever had! There was so much fat on the chicken you couldn't even eat them. This place isn't worth your time.

    Love love love the quesadillas as an app for a table or dinner for one. Make sure you get the chipotle sauce for sure- it's awesome. Also kid & stroller friendly which is a plus for parents.

    Lovely space and the chips were warm, which is good, but the frozen margaritas are syrupy-sweet, and the chicken in the tacos is too dry. Overall, average Mexican food. Cafe Frida is much better.

    great food and good prices - breakfast burrito with a bloody maria (tequila instead of vodka) for $13. Service was great, but the server kept the change - for a 35% tip, which was overly generous.
