Shorter name for this type of restaurant?

My question is about these Mexican places that appear to be managed by Asians, given that at least one of the staff is Asian, the place has large pictures of selected menu items not unlike at a Chinese place, and the printed menu bears noticeable similarities to those of Chinese places.

I used to encounter a bunch of these in NY/NJ, and just in the last week or so one opened near my folks' hometown in PA.

Is there a shorter, hopefully-not-derogatory name for a place like this?
