I came here for a lunch with a sales rep. I couldn't tell how much extras they threw in for us... Food was fantastic and all the extra perks including shots of tequila were on the house. Great place and best Mexican in Rockland County

My mother-in-law had mentioned this place during our recent Christmas Tree Shop buying blitz so we all stopped for dinner before heading home to NJ. We waited about 5-6minutes to be seated. The atmosphere was fun but the music was a little too loud to...More
