There is a "for rent" sign in the window, and the phone has been disconnected. This is the second Mexican restaurant to occupy this space in "downtown" Clinton and end up closing. My family had been there a few times before and while the food...More

We have had takeout a handful of times and it has been OK. Nothing earth shattering but not horrible either. One thing I have to say is when you get the guacamole and chips you get a LOT ! Plenty for four people. That along...More

I had the Zarape "make your own tacos" and they use queso fundido cheese, which is different than the typical cheddar cheese you find in most Mexican restaurants. Also the owner makes his own really hot sauce (you have to ask for it - most...More

We went on a Friday night and we were a bit worried that there was no one else there. But we decided to stick it out and give the place a chance. I ordered the Black Bean soup as an appetizer. It was good, but...More

Chicken burritos were large but lots of rice, not much chicken or beans for the rather high lunch price. Very mildly seasoned meal and salso. This might be authentic Mexican but it was boring. Fresh squeezed lemonade and hibiscus iced tea were good.

We both had skirt steak on a Sunday night. Mine as fajitas, hers as soft taco. The meat just did not have a fresh flavor. Rest of the flavors - onions, peppers, etc were good. It is very casual atmosphere, simple. Prices were a bit...More

Looking for something different, I happened to notice this place as I drove by. It was not your typical Mexican restaurant. The salsa was fresh, with small chopped pieces of tomato, onion, cilantro, etc. Very good flavor and not spicy. Chips were smaller than normal...More

Needed some non-fast food while around Clinton NJ at the end of August. Remembered that I had had a great meal at the Mexican place near the library the previous summer. I was surprised that El Segundo was gone, and in its place was Tomatillo,...More
