My husband and I had a friend visiting NYC from Milan. He wanted to meet for dinner and we chose El Centro. The food is fabulous, the wait staff is great looking, and the margaritas are STRONG! We love this place.

Our server last night was Chris. He was marvelous.

I visited this restaurant on a recommendation from a young lady in my building. She told me it was the best Mexican food in town and El Centro did not disappoint. I ordered the pescado chilaquiles and it was the best I've EVER had hands down. This is my new favorite go to. The prices were reasonable for a nice amount of food. I'm looking forward to bringing my family and friends when they visit us later this year.

Let me 2nd the general tone of the reviews and say that we loved El Centro. We visited on a Sunday late morning. My wife had the breakfast burrito and I had the breakfast tacos, both were fantastic, the eggs in the burrito were cooked perfectly and the tacos superb. You should go.

The cheese enchiladas were delicious. Large portion with side dish of tasty black beans and rice. The staff was very nice and considerate. The place is cute. There is seating inside and outside.
