Sabor A Mexico
Posted by Taylor on 02/14/2010
My girlfriend and I JUST ordered delivery from this place and are currently throwing the entire order away. The steak was so overcooked we couldn't even chew it. And the pollo pabian sauce was bland and unappetizing. We seriously just tossed the entire meal and are currently putting our coats on to go out to eat.

Beware of reviews that label this place as authentic - it's not. Have grown up in South Texas I can attest to the fact that Tex-Mex and true Mexican fare is impossible to find in NYC. Sabor A Mexico has just reinforced that fact. Let's start from the beginning. For an appetizer we requested Guacamole - it's not available because "avocados are not in season..." Dude, we're in NYC, I can walk less than a block away and buy these people 60 avocados. This isn't Blue Hill, I don't care if it's not in season in North America, I guarantee you can still buy avocados. Instead we get the nachos with...not just any cheese melted on top, nope liquid cheese like you'd get in horrible cheap nachos from a movie theatre!! Ridiculous! Chips were stale as well. I ordered flautas and my wife got the crunchy chorizo tacos. Both were failures. The flautas were greasy, overcooked, and surrounded by watery refried beans: gross. Flautas should be elegant flutes, not greasy at all, and crispy not soggy! Where was the crema, guacamole, salsa, and queso fresco?! NOT there, that's where. My wife's tacos were unpleasant as well. Greasy, over cooked taco shells, tasteless chorizo, no spice at all. Don't waste your money here.

i am a mexican raised in california, so let's just say i know great and most importantly authentic mexican food when i have it. needless to say, sabor a mexico is the most authentic mexican food i've had since moving to nyc 5 years ago. it's definitely hard to find great mexican food but alas i have found this great mexican gem... i had the chile rellenos which were excellent. though, please take note, that mexican food is not diet type food so it can be quite hearty... if you like to eat light foods like salads, please don't expect that from an authentic mexican restaurant... happy mexican :-)

got delivery, was prompt but beans were not "refried," tails of shrimp were sort've cut off, sour cream was drippy/melted, taco meat was hardened (as if it had been made the day before and microwaved that day), guac was brown, tortillas were the worst i'd ever had. do not order from this place!

I am very picky about mexican food. And there are so many that prance around being all trendy, BUT this one is actually really really really good. Suprisingly happy with the chorizo and the mole. Both are very hard to get right. I am a picky eater, and hard to satisfy. Outstanding.

We order regularly and are never disappointed. Food is fresh, hot and packd with flavor. For the price it's the best.

i've been here for two years and finally found a good Mexican joint. Cilantro made me sick both times I went there, and no one else (w/ the exception of Blockheads in the 40's) really compares to the takeout my wife and I just had. The Chef's Tex-Mex Burrito Amigos were out of this world--they were well made, hearty and delicious. I had the steak, she had the chicken, and shazam, both were great.
