Sabor A Mexico

This place is great! Ever since I first happened upon this little restaurant, I can't help but eat the tamales at least once or twice a week. After eating tamales on the road-side in Baja, I'd been craving that experience, and this comes close. Small, friendly and great food, especially for the price.

I've lived on the UES for 2 years and have been looking for my mexican take-out staple. Search over. I ordered the Grilled Chicken Taco Salad and was very pleased. The chicken and vegetables were fresh and perfectly cooked. It came with small cups of sour cream, guac and pico on the side. Once I finished eating the salad I broke apart the tortilla and ate it with the guac. Exactly what I expected and wanted. Can't comment on the atmosphere since I ordered delivery but the delivery was super-fast and courteous. Highly recommended.

I will keep this simple. Food- Below average, had no flavor and the burritos had no onion or tomato or lettuce or cheese! What kind of burrito is that! also for a chorizo burrito the flavor was non existent. The the chicken on the nachos was stale. Service- I got delivery and had extreme trouble with the woman who took my order. I was told after i ordered that it would be $59.79 Twenty minutes later i recieve a call saying she added it up wrong and the price would be $75.79. I made a point to ask for the amount when i ordered because i only had so much cash on me and needed to know if i should put it on a credit card. After she tells me that she made the mistake of incorrectly adding up my bill says she cannot take my credit card or cancel my order because the food is on the way. after bothering me for another 5 minutes on the phone and telling me she will lose her job if i dont take the food she finally says that she will leave the bill at $59.79. the bottom line is that with other options youre better off getting some killer authentic Mexican food with flavor somewhere else

Ordered delivery, so I can't comment on the atmosphere. The food arrived extremely quickly, the lady on the phone was polite and didn't make me repeat everything 16 times, and the delivery guy was pleasant enough. The carne asada tacos are the taqueria style soft tacos and come with cilantro, onions, tomatillo salsa, limes and some chopped radish. There are not too many places in the neighborhood that make good simple tacos this well. My only regret was that I didn't order more. The enchiladas were good too, although the red sauce was too tomato-y for my liking. Overall, this place was just fantastic. A bit on the pricey side for unpretentious basic mexican food, but I'll gladly pay a bit more for good food like this. Don't hesitate to order here once or twice and see for yourself.

The reason I order from this place is the high score that the other folks gave them. I ordered ground beef burrito, it is said 9.00, came as 10.60, I dont know how they calculated the taxes. but I still give them 13 bucks including the tips for the guy. The burrito, simply put, is poor quality. I was pretty small, like 2/3 of the length of the one that you can get from a chain. Anyway, I feel really sorry for the folks who said their food is great, you guys deserved better. Maybe their other food are great, but I wont even give another try.

Finally an authentic Mexican food restaurant in Manhattan! I was born and raised in San Diego and burritos are my bread and butter. This place makes em like their almost straight out of San Ysidro. The enchilada sauce tastes like my grandma's and the flan is so right. Oh and the refried beans.....creamy, delicious and perfect! The decor is pretty classic as well. After suffering ten years in NYC with only burritoville and la esquina to dampen my mexican craivings (both which taste closer to chinese than mexican), there is a place that can take me back home. Sabor a Mexico is the taste of Mexico. Canyon Road can kiss my ass.
