The food here is very authentic, from beef burrito to beef tongue tacos. They have amazing fresh guacamole and they have beer and spanish sodas. Be prepared to speak some spanish as english is not very present. But carry a smile and an open mind and you will be pleased with the food! And they are open until 3 am. Its great food, chill atmosphere and a memorable experience.

Attempted to order the 5 chicken enchiladas dinner. No one could competently speak english. One waitperson said at the beginning credit cards were accepted, then when it came time to pay, ended up being cash only. Ended up being $10 behind on the rent but that was inconsequential. The food really precludes any reason to come here, even if the waitstaff was forgotten about. I don't know who said that the spicy enchilada sauce wasn't watered down because I could hardly taste it. There was barely any meat inside the enchiladas. The rice was reheated in the microwave and the dehydrated vegetables mixed in gave away that the rice was just prepackaged rice served from a bag somewhere. The tortillas were obscenely thick and tasteless. Left me hungry at a time when it wasn't in the budget to go out and eat two dinners in one night since the first failed to satisfy the one basic merit all food ought to follow through on: staving off hunger.

My boyfriend likes Mexican food and surprisingly it is very difficult to find a good Mexican place in NYC. I am used to tons of awesome places in SF. So I searched and found this place. The food was decent but what's with the scary dark room with no light in the back? I am usually not big on atmosphere but the bathrooms are right there, the room is dark, guacamole was served in a bowl with the same fork they used to smash the avocado...overall, I thought it was little bit too much for me. I was restless there. Another major difficulty for us was that the wait staff didn't speak English at all. So I am still in search for the next place,

Awesome atmosphere for Mexican, complete with Mexican league futbol on the tv. Very laid back service *although not English speaking* so wouldn't recommend if you're in a rush. Food was outstanding. Excellent for a lazy weekend meal!

A restaurant in Spanish Harlem that has a great atmosphere and Mexican food that hasn't been watered down for tourist or mainstream tastes. The food is amazingly full of flavour. The staff is lively and helpful. The juke box adds to the character of the little cool room at the back where the locals sit. Backroom is an oasis from the heat, a Mexican cantina to cool off in and enjoy your surroundings--nobody will be rushing you... Recommended are the enchilladas and tamales which are delicious. Their orange juice was made from real oranges, can you believe it?! They have quite an extensive menu, so you'll find plenty of things to try out. Very close to the subway (line 6, 110 St. stop), but do take a walk around the neighbourhood to see the Uptown side of Central Park. Best visit in the daytime.
