A cute place in downtown New Rochelle for good Mexican to eat in or take out. The BEST is their pizole soup, very hearty and served with shredded lettuce, onion, lime and wicked hot sauce !

How they make such great food in such a tiny kitchen amazes me. The taste and presentation is 2nd to none.I love how the incorparate fresh fruit and fried plaintains into the... More

i was shocked to see this small authentic, quick, fresh and happy to please restaurant not only listed as #22 in NewRo but behind Little Mexican Cafe. There is NO comparison. This is the only place to go for Mexican locally. Phenomenal dishes and try the authentic nachos, nothing like those you are familiar with at every tavern around. Prices... More

My cousin has a house in Mexico where I have been spoiled by her cook, Lupe. Here I keep looking for Lupe in the back of the restaurant by have not found her yet. Food is so pure to the traditions of Lupe from Acapulco that I am transported there just by eating. There is no pretense. The little place... More

Hubby and I sat outside during the summer and had a great authentic Mexican meal. All was delish and the price was right! I didn't sit inside however it looked cramped and more like a take out place. Don't pass up the food was excellent!

This is my favorite Mexican spot in New Rochelle. Is the ambiance cute? Not really. Is the service going to set the world alight? No. But it's just honest and has good food. It's actually really cute in the summer because they put out tables and chairs outside and the cute little pitchers of Mexican juice. Good, honest food and... More

I've visited this restaurant twice this month because I am in love with their guacamole. It is so fresh and delish. Of course this is not all they offer. Their menu has plenty variety. I also love their shrimp burrito. The prices are very budget friendly. The service is great. The food is authentic Mexican as you can see the... More

I have been here numerous times for breakfast and lunch and order different dishes each time. The menu is huge and every dish is freshly prepared. You are welcomed with a basket of tortilla chips with spicy hot sauce. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Note they take cash only.
