    Watermelon juice

    I'm so sad to hear that this place closed. I am going to miss the refreshing fresh-squeezed watermelon juice and enchiladas.

    I really like this place, order at least once a week and the service is always impeccable. They accidentally gave me soup instead of salsa last time but sent over salsa within five minutes of my call advising them of the mistake. Maybe not the best mex in the city but definitely the best in north slope.

    Muy delicioso!

    Went here for the first time and really enjoyed it. The watermelon juice is a must, especially in the summertime. The enchiladas and steak burrito were also good.

    poor delivery!

    This makes the second time ("fool me twice, shame on me") that delivery has taken more than hour . . . we're now going on 1 hr. 15 minutes and counting (after being told "only 10 minutes more" about, oh, a half-hour ago). The food is OK, the cafeteria decor you can live with, but please do yourself a favor and do not order takeout. Subpar . . . late . . . cold.

    Never disappoined

    The food is great. The portions are generous. Delivery is timely even in heavy rain or snow. I've never received a cold meal. Kudos for their willingness to tweak an order to suit my preference. What else can you ask for?

    Not recommended

    Just ordered delivery from here. food came quick but it was cold and unappetizing. we ordered a taco salad that came as a small one cup size taco shell with chicken and cheese. the quesadillas were small cubes with damp flour tortillas. do not fall for it.

    Love this place, consistent since it opened

    I adore this Mexican restaurant, and have been ordering delivery regularly for over a year. Have never had problems. Once in a while the quality varies slightly, but in a very minor way, like the enchiladas not having as much sauce as I like. But then I asked for extra sauce the next time, and have never had a problem again. Too bad to read complaints as they're all so incredibly nice, in my experience it's been excellent service from start to finish. Perhaps I'm lucky, but more likely the folks with bad experiences caught them at an off moment. But more importantly, their food is fab. First. the guacamole con totopos - fresh fried corn chips and fresh smashed guac, usually as good as any I've had made tableside in a restaurant. Second, love the burritos and quesadillas. Third, ENCHILADAS just like I had in LA. Very hard to come by in NYC, authentic Cali-Mex. They have my vote for best Mexican in the Slope, at least.
