“terrific Mexican place that looks like a hole-in-the-wall but is actually a clean, healthy and wonderfully cheap place for non-greasy, yummy Tex Mex.”
“Although the service was quite slow for the simple meatless dishes we ordered, the food was worth it.”
Worst Service Ever. Person who answers the phone there and takes delivery orders is horrible - very rude. They screwed up our delivery yet again (food arrived stone cold) and continued to be rude. Do not order from this place or go there. Plenty of other better Mexican restaurants in Hell's Kitchen.
Great place with good mexican food..
The food is good,not the greasy kind which ,makes you feel guilty after eating it.The Sauces are fresh and tasty.
I would recommend this place.
Service is a disaster!! i went yesterday and there was not a lot of people and i order the guacamole and chips (horrible!!) and a quesadilla (can't get more simple than that) which by the way never arrived, we waited 40 minutes and after complaining several times to each an every staff member, (who seem to be under medication since we didn't got a reaction at all, very weird and uncomfortable) they told me it was going to be 2 minutes more, but not a single apology or explanation for the delay. After that i decided to cancel my order and left and i have no intention of going back.
Believe me there are a lot of Mexican restaurants in NYC, this is one you can skip, not worth at all.
the taste of home. I stumbled upon this place, looking to have a casual dinner with my boyfriend. Although the service was quite slow for the simple meatless dishes we ordered, the food was worth it. The fajita crust was crunchy and the filling tasted nice and fresh, as well as the burrito. Totally affordable for a nice night out but know that you'll be waiting for your food to come out so fill your time with an appetizer.
Excellent healthy Mexican food. This is one of my favorite places to eat in my neighborhood. The food is fresh, consistently good and healthy (at least relative to most Mexican fare). The restaurant is small and can be a little noisy, but it's still a good atmosphere. I've done take-out, delivery and eat-in, and all are consistent, quick and painless. I recommend the slim and mole burritos. Good home-made salsa, too.
Great, healthy Mexican food. A terrific Mexican place that looks like a hole-in-the-wall but is actually a clean, healthy and wonderfully cheap place for non-greasy, yummy Tex Mex. The service can be a little spotty, but the prices are crazy cheap and the food is great, especially with all the different salsa in the back that you're free to grab whenever (a fact they don't always advertise, weirdly). Easy to walk right by, this place is an excellent alternative if El Centro across the street is full, which it often is at peak times.
Fabulous neighborhood burrito spot. Lime Jungle consistently has good inexpensive food. The service can be a little fraught but thats because they usually only have 2 people at a maximum serving the entire restaurant....this is why its so affordable so I can live with this small sacrifice! If you expect this and are realistic, you'll be fine - don't go expecting fine dining service but do expect to have great, cheap food and some really good wines actually (only $6 for a huge glass of really great wine). Fab spot for a chilled dinner spot if you don't want all the frills of white table cloth dining and fancy something quick and scrumptious.
pretty good. the food is consistently good. its healthy mexican which is hard to find in NYC. i use to live in SF and i could never find a good burrito, but LJ isnt bad. They forget to put the salsa in the takeout bag and can be late sometimes. the service is friendly and the place is very clean. worth a visit.
Tropical kitsch and an adventurous menu spice up this Mexican grill in Hell's Kitchen..
Jungle-print wallpaper and leopard-spotted ceiling fans are the first sign that this Mexican grill in Hell's Kitchen is taking a slightly different tack than Chipotle. Sure, it offers tacos and burritos like the ubiquitous chain, but the kitchen also throws in some intriguing extras, like crispy-skinned Yucatan chicken, lime-marinated ceviche and seafood empanadas. Eight varieties of salsa stand ready at an ice bin near the ordering counter, where a machine dispenses slushy pomegranate margaritas.
Skip the Jungle for Takeout!.
Walked by a few times, and this place looked good from the outside. Being a foodie, I grabbed a menu. Tonight I decided to order.....
First, they must have a bad phone, or its really loud in there, because I had to repeat my order like 3 times. Simple order, nacho's and a burrito. I only live a few blocks away, and most places average 30-35 min for a delivery. 45 min later I called back, repeated 2 times that my order was not here, then was put on hold for a few minuetes. When they came back, they said it was on the way.
Now were pushing OVER a hour when my food gets here. As expected, its ICE COLD. Unexpectedly, my "nachos" were NOT NACHOs, but actualy an 8 inch tortilla, with a thin layer of beans, cheese, lettuce tomato. More like a mexican pizza. The pico and sour cream were in tiny plastic caps on the side.
The burrito was a little better but.... it was BLAH, no taste. How can you make mexican food with no zing, no taste? Somehow, they did it.
Overall, my takeout experience was BAD. The food is below average. I won't even go in there to eat now. There are a lot of mexican places in Hells Kitchen, and I have tried most of them. They were all MUCH better then Lime Jungle.
