“Nice food and a view to die for!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2013

The view is incomparable. You get the New York skyline unlike anywhere you have seen before. Midtown is directly across and you can’t help yourself with those big picture windows that are visible from nearly every table. I felt the food might have been a little fresher and the flavors could have been brighter. However, New Jersey is a long way from Mexico - don’t let my comments stop you from going. The food is enjoyable, so this is a great spot for couples or even for bigger gatherings. The prices are moderate (not over-priced). I felt the staff were really on their game and everyone seemed to be having fun. Parking is $4.00 unless you want to cruise the streets trying to find a spot to park.

“Mexican at its best.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

The guacamole is made to order...at your table! It is delicious and a must have. Their frozen margaritas are $10 each, but two of them are more than enough (they are strong). I have had several entrees and have enjoyed each one, as they are not "American Mexican" covered in cheese with no flavor. This location is much nicer, and larger than the Hoboken location.

“Great Evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

Always love a Mexican, not easily found in the UK. This was a great restaurant with fantastic food, they have an extensive collection of Tequilas and great cocktails too. They made guacamole at the table, I am told this is common the USA but a new one for me! Anyway it was the best I have ever tasted and that was only something to nibble whilst choosing. Great food, great service wonderful view over Manhattan Skyline. It gets busy for this reason essential to book.

“OK for a Mexican Restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Our table was wobbly. The waitress was aware of the situation but did not offer us another table though there were a few others available. When I did ask she simply placed a few coasters under one leg of the table. This stopped the wobbling but the table was a bit askew. The restaurant was very noisy and not very clean. The food was typical Mexican and nothing surprising. I will not dine in a Charrito's in the future.

“Nice view, average food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

The best for this restaurant is his view. You can have the fantastic view of the whole Manhattan. It is really worth! The restaurant has a small terasse, so that you can sit also outside. It is a pity that it is not on the waterfront.
The food is average. However, guacamole is delicios and is made in front of the guest. This is also very intersting experience!
