  • 1. Little Mexican Cafe

    NewRo residents know that LMC has been the place to go for Mexican food since 1990. Their salted beef taco in a baby-soft tortilla with chopped cilantro and onion is a must, especially on Taco Tuesdays (99 cents each!). You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how tender the meat is.
  • This is authentic Mexican food, not Tex Mex. No gobs of melted cheese in sight in this dish, which is light and delicious, the tortillas full of simply cooked, fresh-tasting shrimp, covered with a white wine and garlic tomato cream sauce and topped with salad (with a sprinkling of shredded cheese).
  • A staple for Iona students, the choices here are staggering, from the classic La Fresca burrito with battered fried chicken to a chicken fajita wrap to the California Burrito. The “Veggin’ Out” is pretty much exactly as it sounds and, for something completely different, try the “Cheeseburger ‘Rito.” (Just a thought: Pair your rolled-up fave Read more...

    4. Tomatillo

For meat lovers, there are options like pulled pork, chicken chorizo, or the Iron Man, consisting of steak, poblano rajas, jack cheese, rice and beans, and guajillo BBQ. Vegan eaters have a choice Read more...

  • 7. PopoJito

    Capitalizing on the casual-dining trend, this entirely gluten-free Mediterranean-Mexican restaurant opened in Scarsdale. The result: dishes like caramelized cauliflower tacos with tomato relish, octopus fajitas, chipotle-eggplant dip, and crisp-yet-custardy churros that make gluten-free taste great.

    8. Café La Fondita

    Open since early February, Café La Fondita is a counter-service takeout taqueria and Latin café with breakfast and lunch service (there is a patio with 30 seats for warmer temps). The tortas, or overstuffed, pressed Mexican sandwiches on crusty white bread, are a standout, as are the steak and cheese quesadillas, grilled shrimp tacos, and tortilla Read more...
  • 9. Vega Mexican

    The menu skews contemporary (as does the neon-lit interior), with riffs on Mexican dishes like avocado-corn fritters, chipotle-battered calamari, and a Cozumel salad with greens, mango, jicama, and raspberry vinaigrette. 189 E Hartsdale Ave;   Best of Westchester 2020 - Best Spicy Cocktail
  • Breakfast in a tube is also on the menu here, featuring scrambled eggs, tomato, onions, jalapenos, chorizo, home fries, and cheese, along with a more classic burrito stuffed with choice of meat, all the fixings, and served in a tortilla or deconstructed-style in a bowl. The crowd-pleaser is the Mojado Burrito, filled with meat, rice, Read more...

  • 12. Taco Shak

  • 13. Taco Shack

    Those familiar with Luis Aguilera’s Halstead Avenue Taqueria should visit his sit-down spot in Port Chester. It’s a mostly classic Mexican menu, but there’s a Peruvian-influenced taco that you shouldn’t miss. This handheld riff on lomo saltado is stuffed with tender steak, hand-cut fries, homemade ketchup, and fresh pico de gallo.  

    14. Falafel Taco

    This restaurant combines Mexican and Israeli flavors, resulting in original and flavorful hybrid offerings. The Ma Bett’s Old Clothes Taco is one of their unique staples, a slow-cooked brisket recipe taken from generations back with a cultural twist, adding mayo mixed with zhoug (a spicy, Middle Eastern chili sauce), plus roasted tomato salsa, cilantro, and Read more...
