Rocking Horse or Taco Night @ Suenos

I'm briefly back in NYC after my 2 year stint in Virginia for grad school. Since I'm still living off what's remaining from my student loans prior to starting my job I'm trying to find a cheapish place for dinner with my sister tonight on the West side just north of her office.

We were thinking Mexican and taco night at Suenos sounds fun but I also never had the opportunity to try Rocking Horse when I lived in the city - opinions?

Thanks!

    Sue Torres' tacos are incredible and worth every penny...def check out "taco night" @ Suenos.

      Doesn't Sue Torres' own both places?

        She cooked at Rocking Horse; don't think she's connected with it anymore. She does own Suenos.

          I really liked the food at Sueno's, though I haven't tried Rocking Horse to do a comparison. If you go early, you can get the happy hour special. Order one drink special at the bar, and they'll bring your second to your table for free. I tried the rocks/salt margarita, and it was very good.

      You can't go wrong at either. Look up their menus, see which strikes your fancy the most, go to that one first. Then, another time, go to the other restaurnat and see which one YOU like best. :-) I like both! I like the salsa at Rocking Horse better than at Suenos. Either way, you get a good meal at both.
