Not sure what is going on with the reviews here, but my experience was positive. We had the most authentic Mexican food ever. We had buffet as we were with a group so there was about 20 choices. Everything was fresh, home made, and authentic....More

Big disappointment. Chicken burritos had more gristle than chicken, sangria was a joke - no booze, no fruit. Coffee came out luke warm and only 2 desserts. Server was pleasant and attentive.

Wanting just a snack and some time to rest my feet close to the hotel I stopped in for guacamole and chips. I wolud have done better to buy snacks at the drugstore. Stale chips with uninspired salsa and guacamole that tasted frozen.

Went this past weekend on my birthday (Saturday night). They have a deal that birthday person drinks free from 9pm-2am, and their friends have $25 open bar from 9pm-12am that includes domestic beer, wine, well drinks and margaritas. Sounds like a fantastic deal in NYC,...More
