“Mucho Muncho!”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Authentic mexican food at a very reasonable price. Homemade chips and salsa for starters. Locals love it so it has to be good.

“Nice and Fresh”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

A nice surprise in Frenchtown. My wife and I decided to dine here on a Saturday night because they were open much later than the other restaurant’s in Frenchtown. We are glad we did as the food was plentiful, tasty and fresh. We will definitely be going back!

“Good food no empanadas”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

Not being experienced with what authentic Mexican food is, I can say this is much better than the typical chain experience. The four of us ordered the Steak fajitas, chicken fajitas, burritos with mole, and a chimichanga. The steak fajita was very tender with a very good portion and we felt the same about the chicken fajita. The burritos came with 3 large burritos that my wife thoroughly enjoyed. The chimichanga was lightly deep fried with very tender steak. The restaurant makes me think of a speak easy that you might see in a movie, as it is located in a walk down near the Deleware river. Very cool, very good food. Nice place to eat and be able to talk with your fellow diners. No liquor license. I did not ask but i would imagine you could bring your own bottle. I strongly recommend.

“Best Mexican in the area”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

Ate here twice this year and have plans for lunch next week. Delicious mexican - the rice and beans, which in some restaurants feel like a throw away - are so flavorful. Chips and salsa very fresh and good. Frenchtown is such a quaint town, be sure to walk around the other shops after eating here.
