We go here often--we always call ahead even if we are around the corner so that we can move up the seating roster. Tontight I tried the tamales! Oh my great dinner, tamales, black beans, salad and rice! After a huge serving of chips and salsa! Took home leftovers

Went at like 3pm and there weren't many customers. Excellent service, quick, and great food. Tried a new margarita with help of the waitress. Love the chips and homemade salsa they bring to your table. Great deal with coupon we had!

This is our favorite Mexican Place...And, Heather is our go-to Waitress! The food is consistently good! The warm chips with two temperatures of salsa are guaranteed to start off any dinner on the correct note! Really great tex-mex!

Stopped here after a trip to the track where the margarita are $8-12 each. Pleasantly surprised when we went in and the house margaritas were $4 each and they serve chips and salsa (mild or spicy, both of which are good). House margarita was tasty, they have a menu with all types and so I ventured to the 1921 margarita,... More

The Mexican Connection us to be a Saratoga Springs main stay, but after it changed hands it kinds lost its luster. The food is not as good and the interior is dated.

Really enjoyed this cute Mexican restaurant across from the Saratoga Race Track. Had a delicious home made warm chips with salsa, then a delicious Taco salad with chicken. Beside the salad absolutely loved the blackberry margarita. Since I travel to Mexico annually this was a great treat to get Mexican food while I am home.

We all got something different & pleased with quality, quantity. A little noisy at first but music died down eventually. Server helpful & pleasant. Place busy, especially with locals. Will definitely return.
