Mexican Place in White Plains

Has anyone tried the Mexican place on Gedney Way in White Plains? Is it good?

  1. I don't know about that one but I am curious about the new one on Quarropas Street.

      I don't know if it's new, but Hacienda Azteca on Quarropas is above average and fairly authentic Mexican. It's a little overpriced, but the sauces are tasty.

    2. I have been to Sunset Grille twice. Remember Don Emilio and the mexican restaurants he had at various times in Mt Vernon, Stamford and Larchmont? This is his place too, he'll probably greet you at the door (which makes me wonder if this place won't be around too long, either).

      The first time I went I had a soft shell crab special. Unusual, I know, for a Mexican restaurant, but it was fabulous. I also remember the pomegranite martini. My friends had steak, burritos, etc. Big servings, all were happy.

      The next time I went was a couple of weeks ago for lunch. I had the skirt steak, it was good. Tasted the quesadilla appetizer, good and a chicken burrito dish. It was all, quality-wise, above your basic Mexican fare that you'd get at a place such as Mary Anne's in Port Chester. It was more like Mexican style than flat out Mexican cuisine. Be warned that the food is prepared spicy, so if you don't like chile, you should let them know when you order. Also, the bar can get crowded on weekends (as does the restaurant).

      They serve a Sunday brunch, the menu looks above the ordinary. If anyone has tried that, please post.

        Thank you!

        Sure, I remember Don Emilio's in Larchmont. Sounds good; I'll give it a try.

      2. Cool...yes and yes on Larchmont (and Mamaroneck, the place across from the car wash).

        I'll have to give it a try. Is it a left or a right off of Mamaroneck Ave. going towards downtown WP?

        Thanks for the tip.

        1. Going north on Mamaroneck Avenue, you turn left on Gedney Way (Burke Rehab is on the opposite corner, Gillie Park is on the left).

          Don't forget that pomegranite martini...

          1. Thank you, Dim Sum Diva. This is a definite 'must try'!
