    Fighting fire in this frigid weather is horrible, and I am very grateful that no one was hurt. That said, imo, Guadalajara puts the O in Overpri$$$$ed for mediocre food and very poor service. I continue to be baffled by the crowds who go there--another example of the dearth of decent restaurants in the area.

      that locatrion has had one bad place after another, its a sign of just not bad eats in the area, but in genreal poor taste level of the gringos in the usa, who like big large eats over quality, viva american eats

        Good News-Perhaps.
        Seems as if the folks over in LoHud's Small Bits found out that Resaurant, after 7 months, has re-opened as of early this week:

          Not only is this place expensive, but someone stole my wife's raw sac! However, the guacamole is very good. But, the margaritas are made with a MIX!
          Verdict:Can someone recommend another gringo mexican place? I like authentic mexican but sometimes you just want Big Dumb Mexican Food.

            Try in Chappaqua, Don Emilio. I think the food is very good there. I am not picky with the drinks, I had a delicous pomengranate margarita there

              What is a raw sac, BTW?
