Mexican - New Rochelle

Just moved to the area and can't find any recent threads dedicated to the subject so I'll ask: what are the best Mexican places in New Rochelle?

    1. re: JMF

      Thanks. I saw them, but things change, places open, some places improve and others go downhill so was looking for anything updated.

    2. the two taco trucks at city park are the bes deal and some of the best tacos-unfortunately they are gone for the winter and the way this winter is going we may never see them again. btw teca's is the better of the two imho

      1. little mexico café, especially on Saturday/sunday when they have pozole and menudo

        1. I live in NewRo and have probably eaten at most of them. Little Mexican has the best drinks and I like them, but not as much as I used to -- they changed their shrimp recently which is usually what I order. Still, I would put them near the top of the heap. Nice size portions and reasonable prices. El Herradura in Wykagyl stay away from, but the original one on Main St. is much better. Their shrimp quesadilla was fantastic - pricey but huge. Drinks not quite as good as Little Mexican, but fine. Nice servers at both places. I haven't been back to Mexican Corner in several years as they don't have much fish on their menu, but many people seem to like it. Last, but not least, is El Tio across from New Roc City. Their food is good/homemade. Service is sloooow so don't go when you're in a hurry. Some of the best tres leche cake I've had. Please post when you've tried a few.

          1. The best Mexican I have had recently is La Cosinita. I ordered delivery and really liked my food. Homemade tortillas for the queasadillas, very good mole on the enchiladas, and decent but not spectacular tacos.

              Which quesadilla did you have? The squash blossom and huitlacoche looks good.

                That's the one I ordered but they delivered a chicken and cheese instead. It was delicious but looking forward to trying the squash blossom next time

                  Please report back if/when you try it! I love huitlacoche.

                Thanks for this recommendation! Just got some excellent mole enchiladas.
