This pleasant little place has been open since about February but we just found out about it. A disclaimer: I neither know nor care about whether it's "authentic" Mexican, Tex-Mex, Cal-Mex, or Chex Mix. All I know is I enjoyed the colorful, cozy setting (well, when crowded, it might seem cramped), the location, the pleasant service, and the food, which could be described as some type of nouveau yuppie Mexican fusion thing. Or whatever. Menu runs to burritos and tacos generally, priced about 6.95-11.95. A sign in the window proudly proclaims that they use organic produce from Stone Barns. (Three cheers-if only they could make it 100% organic, i.e. meat too, I'd go there every day.) Anyway, I had a BBQ pork burrito which consisted of the pork, the sauce, pinto beans and rice and was quite tasty. The sauce was sweet but not overly so, not cloying or gummy. I thought it complimented the pork very well. My dining companion had a steak burrito with a chipotle sauce that was good but more hot than flavorful. We will most certainly be back for more, probably soon! Oh, and it's on Cedar Street in Dobbs Ferry just west of Broadway, just south of the Broadway/Ashford Avenue intersection. In my opinion this place fills a culinary hole in the Rivertowns.
