As a former Californian who has visited Mexico a lot, I longed for real Mexican food here in NYC. And at long last I found it right around the corner. Consistently excellent and authentic. Lovely people. Sparkling-clean. Prompt service. And great value.

I am Mexican and I eat in this place when I want authentic and unpretentious Mexican food. Some of their highlights are: -The Pozole (This is a great soup with corn and chicken to which you add lettuce, onions, oregano, lime, radish green, avocado… really good) -Mixiote, new in the menu and fantastic -Pastel tres leches (dessert- the best I have tried including those in Mexico) Also good: -Flautas, simple but delicious -Mole, great! Do not know about the nachos but if you want real Mexican food in general you should not eat nachos or burritos anyway. It is a family run business with Mexican chefs and the service is always friendly and good. If you are looking for a tasty inexpensive dinner this is a great place. The atmosphere is not gorgeous but it does look like a little “fonda” in Mexico.

I was enthusiastic upon entering this restaurant and totally "underwhelmed" when leaving. The decor is acceptable, the establishment is spotlessly clean. But the service is slow and, alas, the food is relentlessly bland, extremely overcooked and very dry. If large quantities of cheap and flavorless filler is your goal, this is the place. Otherwise, keep walking.

Although the atmosphere at this small restauraunt leaves much to be desired, this is the closest I've found on the upper east side to baha Mexican food without spending a fortune. I think the guacamole is actually prepared with fresh avocadoes, and the tomotillo (salsa) sauce is amazing. It's all about fresh ingredients and affordable prices at this place.

With all of the great reviews posted, I was expecting to find a hidden treasure in the UES. This was far from what I actually experienced. The food was not expensive, but it was still difficult to say I got my money's worth. The nachos which recieved such stellar reviews were just okay. They can best be described as decent chips smothered with a cheese one step above cheez wiz. I then ordered a combo of enchiladas. Also decent, but hardly worth raving about. The service was also very slow and I was constantly searching for someone to refill a drink. Overall, the entire experience was not terrible, but certainly not a place to which I would return.

The best nachos I ever had. They use marinated chicken breast with caramelized onions and flavorful cheddar cheese on top of freshly deep fried torrtillas. I order it at least once a week!

The food here is great, the tacos locos are excellent and the appetizers are wonderful. As a mexican transplant from San Diego I was pleased to find a place to eat real Mexican food. I go to this place every once in awhile and it never disappoints.
