“The margaritas are great and you can't go wrong with the music and ambience!”
“The drinks ARE fantastic and I became a Bloody Mary fan thanks to their creative bartender but for 78.00 (two entree's, an app and 2 drinks) I can think of a dozen better deals in NY.”
“Unfortunetly we didn't get a chance to eat there (we'd already eaten) but the chips & salsa were good!”
“Pretty much everything on the menu is great.”
“The owners of this great little restaurant make the words "Mi casa, Su casa" really ring true.”
“The staff was super friendly and took a moment to chat with us since they too were from LA.”
“The food/drink was delicious at very reasonable prices (we shared guacamole, had three entrees and two drinks each, and the check was $100), but the best part was the staff.”
“know they will as long as they keep dishing out their delicious home-cooked recipes.”
True West Coast Mexican Food in NYC. great, great place. ambience is great, the owners were there asking how we liked our meal....which we really did & liked the price too. we got the hard-shelled tacos, which were really really good....the kind of true hard-shell taco that doesn't crack in your hand on the first bite, we'd recommend the steak over the chicken tho. great beans & rice sides. great part of town. totally cheap. it's very good, very authentic. but the service was very poor, sadly. we sat there for 10mins before someone approached us. but do go, youll like it
Best Mexican Restaurant in the Big Apple.. I found this place accidently while was walking back to my apartment in the SOHO/Greenwich Village district. The food here was so good i ate their twice before heading back to Los Angeles. The food is truely authentic, and not greasy or sloppy like a lot of "mexican" restaurants in New York. The owner Ralph is a real great guy who will occasionally will greet you himself to the restaurant.If your a big Mexican food fanatic like I am, be sure to take a stroll down sullivan street in Greenwich Village and pay a visit to this one of a kind Mexican restaurant in NYC.
Good Times!. Excellent authentic LA mexican food (we Angelenos had to travel to NYC to find food this good); food you can enjoy, savor; rice was perfect; real beans, not mushy stuff; flan was heavenly (and I don't typically like flan); parfait was great; flaming margaritas unique and delicious. I can't say enough except if you want good food, good company, good atmosphere, good times--then this is the place!
South of the border in the big city.. Being from Arizona, I know my Mexican food. The owners of this great little restaurant make the words "Mi casa, Su casa" really ring true. Not only were the Chili rellenos better than any I've had in the southwest, they were made from fresh Anaheim chilis (Real southwest style) and generous in size. The rice and beans were homestyle and delicious. I would highly recommend this place to any other visitors from the southwest who may be a little homesick for good mexican food and dont forget to try the Flaming Margerita made by Leonard. I will be sure to include Florencia 13 in any future plans to visit NYC. Thank you Ralph and Rina! For the warm welcome and wonderful food.
Ahuaa! Chicanos in NYC!.
This is the real thing! Finally, Chicano cuisine and atmosphere in the big apple. The food is excellent, the space is smooth, the people become your family... the whole experience rides a little lower, slower, and deeper. As a South Califas native, I suggest you dump those fake NYC buritto spots and head on over to Florencia 13 for the real thing.
Do you know what Chicano is?
A gem in the city!!. Someone finally understands that there is a difference between Cali Mexican and what we have been led to believe is Mexican cuisine in NYC. As a transplant from Los Angeles, I no longer feel I have to go back to Cali to get my Mexican food fix. As much as I would like to keep this place a secret, I also would like for this restaurant to stay around for the long haul. I know they will as long as they keep dishing out their delicious home-cooked recipes.
Authentic S. Cali Mex Cousine. What a previledge to live only 2 blks away from this great S.Cali Mex restaurant! The service was great---the owners and the staff made us feel comfortable and part of their family. They go the extra mile to introduce themselves and provide you with the most pleasant experience possible. The food was delicious---Tacos al pastor where very tasty and their beans/rice was just like my grandma's cooking!
Closest to SoCal Mexican in the City!!!. I was born and raised in a mexican family in Los Angeles. Florencia 13 is about as close as you are going to get in NYC for that SoCal Mexican food I grew up cooking and eating. Rice is probably as close to my family recipe as I've ever had (including LA joints). I will definately be here at least once a month.
Great New Mexican. The most authentic Mexican I've had in NYC. The tacos al pastor were the best I've had outside of Mexico City. Friendly, family run.
