The inside is bright and clean with orange and yellow walls and bright red table cloths. The menu has inventive, authentic cuisine as well as the standard kid-friendly fare.
This is not a fancy night out or date place, but a great meal before a movie a New Roc or a family friendly joint where you are comfortable with your kids and don’t have to compromise on the quality of the food or pay out the nose.
(PHOTO: Michoacan Platter Oven Roasted Pork, Served with rice & beans salsa & fresh tortillas.) Our kids enjoyed quesadillas and a great mango milk shake (Licuados De Leche). We had the Michoacan pork platter and the Veracruz shrimp platter. Both were solid performers.
Zagats gives the place a 23 rating for food and says:
"“Authentic flavors of Mexico” including “guacamole, margaritas” and tacos al pastor (with chile-rubbed, spit roasted pork) have made this “cheap” New Rochelle cafe “with a big heart” a favorite; “kind service” awaits in either of the two seating sections – one for full-service dining and the other for watching satellite TV and eating at the bar."
