Mexican in Claverack?

Was I dreaming or did someone tell me about a new Mexican place near the corner of 9 & 23? Maybe part of a local chain?

    First the downside : No Liquor license yet. And you can't bring your own. Makes no sense but there you have it.

    Upside : Great mexican food. Easily the best in the county, blows Mexican Radio away on taste and price - and I like MR alot.

    Had Chimichangas, Rellanos, burritos, tacos - all great. Nice green salsa, appropriately spicy. Their red table salsa has a really nice malt vinegar flavor that brightens the tomatoes and cilantro.

    Highly recommended.

      Found it, in passing. South of the 23 / 9H intersection, maybe 1/2 or 3/4 mile.

      Coyote something... in that old bar who's name I can't remember.

      But that gas station does look like it's trying to be something....

        Yes, I had completely forgotten but we noticed it when we drove by nearly a month ago. This place has changed names numerous times, but has always been a bar and the sort of dive I don't think I'd feel comfortable walking into. It certainly did not appear to have suddenly gone upscale.

          I'll try it either over the weekend or next week and let you know. Funny how some places are just out of site / mind.

        Could this be the former gas station at 9H and 23B? It is being redone, presumably as a restaurant.
