Giddy up to Alto Cinco, a very cool Mexican restaurant in the Finger Lakes. Very cozy and authentic spot with awesome vegan/veggie selections and a great adult bev. scene!

Nice place with a different style of Mexican food. I got jerk chicken tacos and really enjoyed them. My bf got the shrimp burrito and that was good also. It had cabbage in it which was different but good. The cornbread was the winner though.
