This place has fresh, authentic Mexican food. The chicken chipolte dinner is phenomenal, and plentiful! I could do without the constant running of the Spanish TV channel running in the background though. Otherwise, I'd given it 5 stars.

We had a wonderful dinner here. Great wine list. Able to handle larger groups. The food was very good, good choice of entrées, good salads, good service.

We chose to eat at this restaurant because the review said it served authentic Mexican food. That part seems correct, but the marguerita wasn't great, there was a Latin show blaring on a TV across the room and the nice server (possibly an owner?) could not speak great English. So the experience in general was not one that I would... More

We have lived in Poughkeepsie awhile and just found this place. Authentic tasting Mexican food, and the freshly made guacamole was excellent. Our favorites were the Mexican sausage enchilada and the steak burrito. The Pico de gallo was also very tasty and fresh. Definitely give this a try if you like Mexican food

Also, my husband thought the steak in the taco tasted old. So, if it weren't for the guacamole, this would be... More

Best Sopes we have had. Small soft tortilla spread with black beans, fresh lettuce, tomato, avacado , mexican cheese and your choice of meat. We had the pork. Freshly made guacamole was the best. Loads of flavor. Clean room with nice big windows. Server was pleasant and helpful. Can't wait to go back. Very cheap!
