      It looks like they have an outside deck but I have not seen tables and chairs outside. They serve pigs ear but I don't think they serve dog.

        :-) Like your sense of humor.
        The first time I stopped in, they didn't have a liquor license. Anyone know if they have one now?

          Not back in May. Give them a call. I liked bringing an assortment of Mexican beers.

      We have a love/hate relationship with this place. It's a family run place and they are first timers. Very nice people. They do have a deli in Hampton Bays.
      Initially, they expected the clientele to be 99% Hispanic and the menu and servers reflected that.
      Lo and behold the place attracted a 50/50 Gringo/Hispanic mix so the menu and servers became more English friendly.
      Slooooooooooooooowwwwwwwww service our first few times but it's gotten much better.
      We keep going back for the fabulous food and reasonable prices.

        In case you can't access this review, bottom line is that Joan Reminick really likes this place:

        "You know a Mexican restaurant is serious when the menu includes pig's ear, tripe and tongue tacos, along with the more gringo-friendly chicken and shrimp. Upping the authenticity quotient at Cinco de Mayo: a chef who goes so far as to make his own soft corn tortillas."
