It's a Very authentic Mexican restaurant. Inexpensive and Fast. My favorite is their fish tacos. They have good specials every day!

Nothing fancy, food was OK, seemed a bit greasy and not much flavor. Service was good and friendly. Limited menu.

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in Manhattan. Soft flour tacos and a side of rice with the green sauce is my go to order.

Mole enchiladas were bland. Green sauce for chips similar to puree, cheap alternative. Best item were the fresh cooked chips.

Checked reviews and more recent were more positive- should have listened to earlier reviews! This food is terrible! Guacamole was some kind of foul tasting green stuff! Queso dip-canned!! Fried flour taco soggy and greasy with minimal filling and topped with grated processed cheese spread!...More

I've been going to the Hillside since before they moved to Manhattan. It's not for everyone, but for those of us who like it, we love it. This is not because Manhattanites don't know anything about Mexican food. I've eaten here with folks from Mexico...More

The Silva family has been serving some of the best Mexican family recipes since I was a kid growing up in Manhattan. This isn't the Taco Tico junk, but hand made real food. The shredded beef and chicken are tasty and the pan fried taco's...More
