Came here as it was the only open restaurant within my first choice- which unfortunately was closed today for Xmas. We were seated quick. Service was fast and friendly. Food was very good, not spectacular. Don't take it from me. I am easy to please....More

Stumbled across this restaurant by chance whilst out browsing and got attracted by the fact it was full. Buzzing warm atmosphere inside on a cold night so we took the last free table. The food was good, large portions and the fresh guacamole was delicious....More

With a ton of different margarita flavors & lots of seasonal drinks this is a great & popular place for large drinks & groups whether small or large. You can order a trio of freshly made salsas by a lady right as you enter the...More

We actually found out about this place from a video on Facebook, and we are glad that we did. We are both huge fans of Mexican food, and the food here was delicious. We shared the fundido to start, and OMG I have never tasted...More

The food was standard. Nothing different. I actually wanted to because of the $100 Tequila drink. Welp, this is only served during Cinco De Mayo. I asked about the souvenir Caliente Cab company glass. Nope, they do sell or give those away either. The good...More

The restaurant looks the part, but that’s where it ends. The chips were a bit on the stale side and the salsa seemed to have little flavor. Don’t get me wrong, the salsa looked like salsa, but tasted more like water. The decor was appropriate,...More

Pretty much your bog standard wannabe Mexican restaurant. All theme and no substance..drinks were large but pricey.. There were 11 of us and I could have eaten most of the dishes blindfolded and not been able to distinguish the difference... Give it a miss. Much...More

Great food, only had drinks and appetizers, but loved the hot salsa, guacamole and queso fundido! Margaritas were very tasty as well. Bonus - stays open till late (at least on weekends, that's when I went there). Good comfort food for late nights.

Great place to hang out - have decent food and a few margaritas. Not the best food in the world but deserving of a solid 3.75 out of 5. Cool slightly eclectic interior and overall, well worth a visit.

A very bad dream you might have after being mugged in Acapulco. The waiter that served us this past weekend was from central casting, and apparently, he escaped a coup to overthrow his government. The man didn't smile. When he asked for our drink order,...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

Some sidewalk seating some inside. It's not huge I'd say maybe 50-75 tables?
