So we drove from our Cooperstown motel to Cherry Valley in search of Mexican dinner. This restaurant did not disappoint. Loved the quesadilla and tacos. Server (Laureen) is a sweetheart.

Had a cocktail and an appetizer at the bar just to check out the vibe. Have to say I've never had a margarita the way they make it and I would not order one again there. They also didn't have most of the tequilas I...More
