      Don Emelio's in Chappaqua or Guadalajara in Briarcliff.

        My experience at Guadalajara was that it was way overpriced, mediocre "gringo" Mexican, with poor service. I would recommend Que Chula es Puebla (also try the Mexican sangria--tequila added instead of brandy!)
        I don't believe they serve fajitas, but Los Abuelos in Ossining is great for delicious authentic Mexican food...

            Only been once, but wondering if anyone remembers if Abuelos in Ossining does fajitas? If they do, I bet they'd be very good!

              Que Chula definitely has fajitas. I remember because my sister is really picky and that was one of the only things on the menu she'd eat. They were very good!

              Service is slow.

                You said you wanted great ones, you didn't specify that they were supposed to be authentically Mexican.

                We had a delicious dinner at Santa Fe this past week after not going there for years. My husband and son each had fajitas, each with a different assortment--one had them with a variety of vegetables including cactus, the other with steak. They are each discerning eaters and were really happy with their meals.

                  where's adamclyde? correct me if i'm wrong, but I think fajitas are more tex-mex than mexican anyway, in which case santa fe would be a good choice!

                    Fajitas are not true mexican fare. They are a one off of the way most mexican meals are served a meat, vegetables, sauces and fresh soft corn tortillas. Most of what is offered as fajitas in this area is not worth ordering as you usually get a hot metal plate filled with onions and bell peppers, an over marinated protein and flour tortillas, and a shot glass of water for the sizzle. Why bother.

                Was there last nite (place was pretty empty). Service was good & homemade guac was on the money, but agree the menu is really overpriced and portions were real small. Margheritas were not the best we've had around Westchester and my rice & beans were served cold. Not really worth the extra $$ in my view

                  Ummm, is this a reply to something? "there"? Where? Also, when you say that the "Margheritas were not the best we've had around Westchester", I can't help wondering what those other places might be.
