Well, my scheduled lunch date cancelled on me...So I decided to proceed with my backup, seamlessweb.com. Long story short, I ended up choosing the "2 cheese enchiladas with rice, beans, chips & salsa" lunch deal for $7.95! I wasn't sure what I was getting myself in to, but reviews on menupages.com and seamlessweb.com seemed fine.
Where the hell can you get this amount of food for under $9 (w/ seamless discount, tax & tip)? To top that off, the meal wasn't good...It was great. The portion was large, the enchilada sauce was scratch made, the beans and rice were EXACTLY how they are supposed to look and taste, and the chips & salsa were fresh and delish...Will order more salsa next time.
Just had to gush...Best damn meal I've had at the price in the longest. Perhaps the most satisfying plate of cheese enchiladas in NYC.
Uh oh, the word is out... this is my secret Tex-Mexican place! I have been coming here for 5 years - I used to live a block away.
I grew up in San Diego so I can appreciate good Mexican food. This is the ONLY restaurant I've found in Manhattan that serves real refried beans (aka made with lard). I always get the Enchiladas Suizas, am sure everything else is good but can't divert from my fave.
