Anyone been to Mexican Radio (Schenectady) yet?

  • 1

I've been to the Mexican Radio in the city. Been a long time. I recall it was good, but not San Diego good. I have not been to the Hudson location.

I did a search of this Board and only found this older post about the Hudson location:

According to TU women@work, the owners invested $4 million. Great for downtown Schenectady. Who knew green and yellow paint cost so much? At least it's not in the Historic Stockade area. Also sounds like it will become a "chain":

  1. We were there for lunch this past Wednesday. I was very skeptical about what to expect after reading numerous poor reviews on Yelp. It's difficult to recall our experience at the Hudson location many years ago, other than the tables were crowded together and it was very busy. Neither was the case here.

    Our service was very good and the food was about average, nothing to wow you like the home cooking that a Mexican friend served us years ago. Yes, the prices may be a bit high for the Capital District, but we didn't leave hungry and the renovations to the old OTB are excellent. I felt like I had entered a large Mexican/western saloon. We'll probably return for dinner some day, but we're not in a rush. I'd rather support family run Mexican efforts like Mexican Market on Central in Albany, or La Mexicana on State Street in Schenectady.

    If I'm going to support a high-end Mexican restaurant chain, I've always enjoyed Rosa Mexicano at its various locations. http://www.rosamexicano.com/index.php... My Mexican Radio experience is available on Yelp.
