      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!
