Now that El Coyote is closed I am seeking a few new Mexican restaurants in Queens to try, preferably located somewhere relatively close to my commute home from Long Island City to Bayside (so a place like Calexico or Florenica 13 would be out).
I am aware of and enjoy De Mole, Taqueria Coatzingo, and Tortilleria Nixtamal. Cinco de Mayo and El Patron near Bayside are solid but not spectacular. I hear good things about Chip's Mexican Grill in Sunnyside and I know there are a ton of places in Astoria and along Roosevelt. For someone who loves California style Mexican food, where else (in Queens only) would you recommend?
