The restaurant is overrated. The atmosphere is very loud and the wait staff is rude and don't check back once the food is served. There are many other Mexican restaurants in the area! Plus, prices don't match the quality, overpriced!

I LOVE this place and visit every time I come to NYC, which is a few times per year. It's especially fun at night with upbeat music and candle-lit tables. It feels like a party. The mole (whether you order enchiladas or the chicken mole)...More

Among the best margaritas I’ve had. This was our second visit, this specifically because our last was so delicious! All natural ingredients; they purée fresh fruit which gives the sweetness, no sugar added. Happy hour all night on Mondays, but two on a Tuesday before...More

Long standing Mexican restaurant with excellent food and great frozen margaritas. The service is friendly and low-key. The inside area can get very loud, depending on the day and time. Captures a lot of the neighborhood “flavor.”

There is always a fiesta happening at this traditional Mexican restaurant. The frozen margaritas are some of the city's best.
