“Good, but not really Mexican”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2012 via mobile

Good service and atmosphere. No chile rellinos! The waitress was nice, but it is not really Mexican. Don't expect the menu to have a lot of variety.

“Friendly staff and different Mexican food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2012

This is a quaint, nicely decorated corner restaurant with tasty Mexican food and good salsas. The owners are very helpful and the cuisine is different than the usual Tex Mex. Great for families or casual dates.

“Fantastic food and great value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2012

Food was great and atmosphere was really good, nice weather and you can get a seat outside. Bring a bottle of wine and they'll mix up Sangria for you. Really lives this place and this was my second time there. I'll be a regular.

“Terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2012

My husband and I just returned from La Estacion. We both ordered the steak chimichanga. There were two little pieces of tasteless meat. The chimi was luke warm. The cheese had no taste. It was mostly crust. We both asked for no sour cream and there were remnents of sour cream on mine.
The rice was cold. The beans were bland and almost cold.
The service was poor.

“Still trying to find authentic good quality Mexican”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2012

I tried La Estacion recently. They are closed on Sundays which is somewhat of a disappointment, but they seem to cater to the commuters using the Morristown station.

I had a combination of enchiladas which were average. The quality of the meat was poor. The chicken tasted like it was made a day previously and was rubbery. The beef was similar, obviously not high grade beef. I found anything with meat to be oversalted. The cheese enchilada was the best, and the chips were obviously homemade and good. Service was poor, when I visited there was one waiter who was also the cashier. It took over 25 minutes for my order to come out even though there was only one other table seated in the restaurant. I find Fresca in Chester to be slightly higher quality, although I'm still trying to find the best.
