Great Choice- Expect a wait – I'll start out by saying that my co-worker is from Argentina and she lives in Pittsford. I recommended she make the hike to the great north, Irondequoit, to try this place and she did. She and her family LOVE it. Feels it's home like for her. Plus it's a GREAT deal for a family of five. That said, I am a family of two and this is one of our very favorite restaurants. First, because it is important, the place is an amazing value. Okay, I take that back. That's not first. I wouldn't eat there a second time if it wasn't really good food. Starting again, First - it's great food. I love the fajita chicken quesadilla. And the quacamole is very good. I am amazed when people ruin quac but it happens, too often. They start you out with chips and red salsa. But ask for the salsa verde or the really hot salsa and they will bring that out for you. I will say, no one can beat a Maria's margarita and this place is no challenge to that institution, but only in the realm of the margarita. The Pancho Special is chicken and shrimp sauteed up with beans and rice and salad, another of my favorites. By the by, they are huge portions and I know I already mentioned it, but it's very REASONABLY priced. (As I write this, I am realizing that this means you all might go and then I might have to wait even longer . . . . and I will cause it's worth the wait but know that I will not be happy about it.) We like it so much that we've driven there through two separate snow storms for dinner there.
My dining companion also loves the food, from the salsas to the fresh tortilla chips to the chile rellenos to the beans, but he loves the service as well. We both highly recommend this place. Not amazing mexican food, but really good for a great price.
