The 4 Amigo Enchiladas was good! There is a good mix of spicy meats and less spicy meats as well as spinach cheese and patatoes in the 4 different enchiladas. The sauce was a normal cheese sauce, not a sour cream sauce. It was quite good. I will have this dish again. The Verde Soup, on the other hand, was a bit too spicy for me. Now, I habitually take about half of the jalapeño out of my food, so ymmv. The true problem with the soup was I ordered a cup and was brought a bowl. When I pointed this out to my server she was apologetic but did not replace the bowl with a cup and I was changed a bowl. This, I think, is a first day shake out problem. The decor is normal Americanized Spanish, scenes painted on the walls. The lighting needs a little work - I used the flashlight on my phone to read all of the descriptions in the menu. Again I think this will be worked out soon, first day (or week) shake out problem. The food is brought out on carts so there is none of the watching servers carry large trays with 5 dishes, waiting for the server to drop it. The carts didn't cause problem for patrons walking around the floor.All in all this was a good lunch. I ordered the soup knowing that it would be a new dish to me - so I was not too upset that it was too spicy for me. The enchiladas were very very good, and I plan to have them again. When I go back later, after they've been open for a bit, I plan to go for dinner and try some of the intriguing looking tequilas.

Miguelitos Taqueria Y Tequilas
So how were the tacos? They were ok. Just "ok". I don't remember too many specifics as my tacos were overcast by a mediocre tequila drink and a silly 1990's nightclub vibe and a bunch of stressed out staff at 2 in the afternoon. Where to begin. The staff was all trying way too hard and made me feel like I was there to buy a used car. But that used car was tequila. One waiter that wasn't even ours stopped by after our food was delivered to not ask about the food as much as to rhetorically drive home the point their tacos are bigger than another local taco place down the road. I had three people working there push the tequila -drink-cocktail-shots etc. It was pretty early in the day which I thought was funny, until the third person repeated the spiel about the tequila selection. No longer funny, but fine, I give ... I finally asked my waitress about any higher end mescal. I'd like a mescal margarita. They had none at that time. Then the manager stopped by to explain that mescal isn't on the level of their tequilas ... and not the sort of high end tequila they carry (which given the national trend of high end mescal going on everywhere I just smiled and nodded). Perhaps things have changed in the weeks since then and they've caught stride, but the place is way too 1990's for me. I won't be back. I'll be down the street where the tacos are smaller and the drinks all have fresh squeezed lime juice.

Bungalow Restaurant and Bar
Visited on a Saturday night. Typical SoHo crowd. Noise level inside of restaurant was high but to be expected given the crowd.Choice of non alcoholic beverages limited. Service was modest. Waiter was pressed to keep up and appetizer was served late with main course.Quality of food was fair. Had several items.Palomillo steak sandwich, served dry with no condiments or seasoning. ( Could only eat half left the rest). Yucca fries .Fish dip.Key West House Salad .With the exception of the fish dip, (Cod I was told) Quality was modest at best and lack sufficient creativity in relation to price.It is this writer's opinion this is a neighborhood bar that serves food as a sideline business and a choice when there is no where else to go.

I visited the recently opened senior ts. The service was wonderful and yes the food took a while to come out. However this place just opened this past weekend on a holiday weekend. You can't expect a place this massive to have all the kinks worked out in a 72hr period. So to all the people that sadly took the time out of their day to write a nasty review, have some patience. Thr food was amazing. You could tell that it was made from scratch. This place has a lot of potential and i think everyone should give it another try in a few weeks. Keep it up senior ts! Had a blast! Also the mariachi band was awesome!!

Rubio's Coastal Grill
Rubios is a casual restaurant that has really great, fresh Mexican food with a coastal twist. I love fish tacos that are either grilled or blackened, and theirs are delicious.I especially like their mahi mahi tacos which come topped with a light crema sauce and grilled corn. They were plated with refried into beans and tortilla chips. They have a taco bar with fresh, homemade salsa, chopped onion with cilantro and other good toppings.You order your food at the counter and then someone brings it to your table after it has been prepared. I enjoy eating lunch at Rubios!

Miguel's Mexican Restaurant
We ate there today for the first time and we were surprised how full it was at 1 in the afternoon. In spite of the large crowd we were seated rather quickly. I hadn't eaten breakfast so I was pretty hungry when I arrived, so knowing the wait time I asked for some chips and salsa and they gladly accommodated me. Everyone was pleasant especially our server Mary. The food was very delish. I live in Riverview but I can see myself intentionally returning to dine.

Went for early dinner at 5:30 and were seated immediately. We both ordered chicken fajitas. Were told chips and salsa would be an extra $3.50. The chips were store bought and served with about 1/2 cup of bland salsa. The fajitas were a pile of onions, some peppers, and 5 small 1/2 inch thick strips of unseasoned chicken. (Could have had a better meal at a fast food restaurant). We won't go back.

My wife and hat I just had lunch at singing Ortiz today. We first ordered the chips and salsa. The salsa was very good the chips were drenched in oil. Our entrées consisted of steak over salad and shrimp over salad. The salad was only iceberg lettuce and a few tomatoes. And will not order that again. We will give it one more try.

I was disappointed about this restaurant. I truly enjoy authentic Mexican food but this is not. The refried beans did not taste homemade and the rice was bland. However, the green sauce that comes with the tacos is very good. I won't be ordering from here again since I was looking for authentic food and this was not.

We've eaten here several times. Service is consistently attentive. Management is present and circulating. The food is always flavorful. I love the enchiladas and the guacamole is fresh!! Music on the patio is fun and the mariachis inside are great!! We just keep coming back!

Just a moment...
