Food is ok, service is kind of slow, or maybe more like confused... I mean SO MANY waiters and yet they can't get it right and are SO SLOW... The place is packed on weekends, so I'm guessing it does the trick. Maybe if they got their act together, it will be busier during the week too...

We have been here before and it always delivers. The service is excellent and the food is too. The salads are fresh and they comply with special requests. What more can you ask for?

We've been here many times over the past 5-10 years; never disappointed. Went 10/8/16 before a show at BergenPAC. Got there at 6pm and were able to get a table right away (other times i've seen long wait times of 45+). There is a large bar area with bar seats as well as high top tables. A few big screen...

Was seeing a show at Bergen PAC and stopped in with a party of 2, was seated immediately on a Saturday, was waited upon promptly, we both selected from the specials menu, fresh salsa and chips were served, and needless to say not long after our meals arrived the plates were empty upon completion. Great portions and an enjoyable meals... More

A step above the El Toritos and Chi-Chis of my youth, the Blue Moon is a great place to go with a group of friends, especially if you all like good sangria. I could make a meal out of the nachos, but also like the fajitas, quesadillas and combo plates.

The first day we went, we ordered their Queso...had to have 2 bowls for our group...it was delicious! The 2nd time we ate there it wasn't as good...different chef...? Anyway, we had this huge burrito that had steak and rice in it...it was good...better with more queso on it. Had a chimichanga...it was excellent...especially after we added queso. Seriously, if...

The place is very nice and has a great social scene. The service was excellent and the management were very accommodating, they made me feel very welcome. I would have rated them 5 stars but I am used to authentic Mexican food, while the food was good it was missing some components I am accustomed to in authentic Mexican restaurants,... More

Guacamole wasn't that great - tasted mass produced rather than homemade. Veggies in the dishes were fresh and well prepared. t couple members of our group had cocktails, including a "skinny... More

The pulled chicken is great, as well as the quesadilla, don't skip the chicken tortilla soup. Great food, fair prices and good atmosphere. Although my waiter made a few small errors the food makes it worth it.
