      is this the place in gramercy? if so i think this place is highly over rated and not very good. sorry leahbaila but i know many who agree with me.

        No worries, Fein...this is an opinion board. I love the place...some agree, some don't.

          I'm with you on this one, I like Los dos Molinos. It reminds me of places I ate at years ago in Flagstaff. Sure it is to expensive, but the food is good.

    2. Ah! Chihuaha on 53rd between 22nd and first does a pretty good facsimilie thereof...

        Zarela's on 2nd avenue between 50th & 51st is very good. I recomment this place.

          I like Zarela's as much as the next person, but it is decidedly NOT tex-mex.

      2. Geronimo on the UES has great chile con queso and chicken burritos -- a classic tex-mex menu. It's new ... corner of Third & 90th, I believe.

        1. Zocala is great, the one I went to was in Grand Central Station. Not romantic at all.

          1. If you're in a really low-budget mood, the "Super Taco" truck at 96th and Broadway is very good...grew up in Texas and after 7 years in NY nobody can get it quite right!

            1. I like Baby Bo's on 2nd ave/34th st. It's good, fun, cozy and pretty delicious. amy @ http://www.neverfull.wordpress.com

              1. Maya on First Ave and 63rd more Mexico City mexican.

                1. Second Ah Chiuahua... The only place in NY to get authentic chicken enchilada suizas and homemade refried beans. I suspect they're made the traditional way (i.e. with lard), but they taste so good I don't care.

                    What about Santa Fe on the UES? Is it any good at all?
