My favorite place is Garcia's on Central Avenue in Albany ... delicious food, about as authentic as you can get around here, consistently rated highly in local polls.

Try El Mariachi on Washington Ave. downtown near the Capitol. It's the genuine article. Big portions, delicious food and reasonable prices.

I'm not sure if too many hispanics would consider Garcia's as authentic. We certainly would not [my mom is from Spain].

Worth the beautiful drive, try Coyote Flaco just before you get to Williamstown. Wonderful spanish and mexican food. Real paella. Website is:

I own Leon's Mexican Restaurant in Saratoga Springs. I am partial of course, but my husband is from Mexico and everything is made fresh everyday--even the chips and salsa! It is really great food!

There is a place in Lake George on the strip that is horrible. Do not eat there! Well, we might have just had a bad cook or something, but it was the worst food I've ever eaten.
