Edit: Lowered the stars as they removed many of the authentic things from the menu and service is now worse.
Original:New business. Service was super friendly. We had a Cemita (Mexican sandwich), tortilla soup, and a Sincronizada for our kid. We had agua fresca to drink (try them, won't regret it). Everything seemed and tasted authentic (we're Mexicans). I particularly enjoyed the cemita. It's a bit spicy, as you would expect in Mexico. Order it without chipotle if you want it mild. Having it with french fries seemed a little odd, but they were good. The tortilla soups is served as a vegetarian option and it tasted great. Our kid also got a concha (Mexican sweetbread) which was good.
Good food, but for the real Mexican experience this may not be the place. Asked multiple times for spicy guacamole and salsas and nothing was spicy. Looks like they are afraid to make authentic Mexican spicy food. Even got “chiles toreados” and they were almost sweet, no flavor!!. Service was not great either, mixed orders, took forever to get a drink and the tables around us were left uncleaned for a long time after the guests left. Would recommend if you do not like spicy food or have kids, but not if you are looking for authentic Mexican flavor. I can get good spicy food at any Indian/ Thai restaurants if you ask for it, why not here?
A nice new addition to Hunters Point. Authentic Mexican. Not too pricey. High quality food and service. Bright, airy environment. All they need is a good Mariachi band on the weekends maybe, and a sign by the subway station pointing people a half a block up 50th ave, off Vernon. Good stuff!
