Astoria Mexican

I know there have been a few posts recently about this, but thought an overall discussion was warranted.

What do people think the best Mexican places in Astoria are? Best values?

I've been to:
Las Margaritas (39th & Broadway?), a decent place with an interesting bar but the food wasn't anything to get excited about.

El Potro (43rd & Broadway?), kind of a hole in the wall place, waitress didn't speak much English and the decor was tacky but the food was a real bargain and quite good. I had chorizo tacos, greasy, spicy and very tasty.

I've also heard good things about El Mariachi (and Tierras Mexicanas, anything else I'm missing? What are your favorite places?
