What’s the best Mexican Restaurant in Saratoga?

Looking for a nice site down restaurant for a dinner with family. Preferably modern atmosphere, vegetarian options. Can't find any good Mexican ion Albany area, but heard Saratoga has good options

  1. The best traditional Mexican restaurant is a toss-up between Leon's and El Mexicano, although the latter is much more expensive, so I prefer Leon's. The best modern or "novo" Mex. place is Cantina. If you're willing to go 11 miles east to Schuylerville, you will find the first-rate Amigo's Cantina which, while expensive, has the best fish tacos and the best nachos I've ever had in the area.

      Thank you - we tried Cantina. It was just what we were looking for. Great food! Modern/interesting menu. Fun atmosphere. Stay away form the guacamole though…very expensive and nothing special. Otherwise food and prices were good!

        yes, for new style, cantina is quite good. for more traditional, we like leon's. haven't been to any others in the area yet.
