Blue Moon Cafe in Bronxville

We went to Blue Moon on New Years after viewing a nice princess movie with the kids at the Bronxville theater. We have been there about 3-4 times in the past 6 years, knowing not to expect much, but being in a very kid-friendly restaurant...

Well, it did not meet my already VERY low expectations. The place was filthy (not that many patrons around, but the bathroom still dirty, and the rug in dyre need of a vacuuming). My $10 margarita was tepid, and tasted like a bad mix, and worst of all, the food... everything tasted like a chicken nuggets wrapped in a fried tortilla.

Not only the food was horrendous, but it was also expensive. $10 margarita, $8 side of guacamole the size of a pea. Our meal basically consisted of $40 worth of chips and salsa.

My resolution for 2008 is to never set a foot in there again, even out of desperation.

  1. g'friend uses them all the time for business lunches and raves about them.......she says the food is consistently fresh, delivered on time and the staff is always curteous.......and she says that her clients are always impressed.........your experience and hers are like night and day................too bad you had such a horrible experience......

    1. I used to go to the one on the Upper East side which was maybe ok, but we usually went for the chips/salsa and sangria. Plus the fact that they had outdoor seating, when you you live in a tiny Mnahattan apt will always be a draw. Since moving to Bronxville over a year ago, we have only been to this location once and that was enough. The salads are decent, as long as you get the dressing on the side but I would never consider them a place for "good" (or authentic) Mexican. They're practically a chain and the quality of the food reflects that.

      1. I had one too many bad Blue Moon experiences myself and haven't been there in at least a year. Rancho Grande was pretty good (only tried it once) but now I've resorted to making my own Mexican at home!

        1. This is all very sad. I am quite fond of Blue Moon's Fiesta Salad - I love the lime marinated chicken in the salad, and the dressing is wonderful. Anytime I go there, I have to take out a portion of their Full Moon Chili for my husband. I actually haven't been there in maybe a year, but it is sad that you found it wanting.
