Description: The authenticity in our Mexican Regional Cuisine is a ritual of flavors, aromas, colors and textures dedicated to your soul. Our knowledge and passion for the tequila culture has been awarded by the Tequila Regulatory Council of Mexico since 2006, making us one of the few restaurants in the world of having such honor. Come and enjoy the warmth of Mexico!

We had just finished riding bikes around Central Park when it started to rain. We didn't have an umbrella so we decided to duck into this restaurant and have lunch. I am so glad we did. We really had no idea what we were getting but it was delicious. The server was not overly friendly but he did his job. The best part was the food. I had the steak fajitas and my husband had the chicken fajitas. They were very good! The portion size was generous as well. The value was reasonable also. For two entrees, tax and tip, our bill came to right about $40.

What can I tell you, I got to eat Chiles en Nogada, with all of the ingredients just like I had tasted it in Mexico. Service was very efficient and polite, all servers knew about the menu and were eager to advice and help.
Go with a big appetite and enjoy!

In fairness, their food may be amazing but the service was RUDE! Basically wasn't acknowledged for 10+ minutes and when I asked to get a simple chicken taco for my daughter, in addition to my order, the server was very rude, told us he couldn't do that and she would have to get 5 - he told the gentleman not to give us water because we were leaving. I travel all over the world and my (extremely well behaved) children are rarely/never made to feel unwelcome, but this server was so snobby and rude I would never want to return!

Arrived early and got seated immediately in a good spot. Ordered drinks guacamole and chips and relaxed right away. For dinner we ordered quesadillas and chile rellenos. Everything was very good and service was attentive and friendly. Nice spot on Columbus Avenue with no pretensions just good food and drink.

Found this via other TripAdvisor reviews so thank you! Was everything that others have said about it. Booked via open table- and glad we did. Wonderful guacamole and trio of salsa. So many margaritas to choose from can't even begin to list here. Also had a corn soufflé- small, but perfect as a side dish- like a corn spoonbread. Other dishes that were good- fish tacos, fajitas. Really enjoyable- staff were great. Very service oriented. Worth a try for sure.
