The old German restaurant has been nicely renovated into 3 rooms and a patio area. 2 rooms are smallish dining rooms and the main room is a bar with 2 separate tables. Good ambience and decor. The waiting staff are new and still learning. We really enjoyed 2 starters which are big enough to share - the Pork Belly and the Seafood Cocktail, both were very well executed. The 4 different tacos we ordered were pretty good, with the best ones being the lamb and the octopus. I'd suggest trying not just the tacos, but the other things on the menu too. Definitely going back!!

We went expecting the same great service and wonderful food. The service is still great. My husband liked his dish - a chicken and fresh vegetable concoction that was very generous in size and reasonably priced . My dish was a disappointment. I ordered the new 3 enchilada combo : cheese , beef, and chicken with various toppings. The server said it was very hot . The plate itself was , but my food quickly turned cold. Because the 3 enchiladas with their sauces were close together in the plate , the sauce for each was meager. The cheese enchilada , as I said quickly got cold and solidified . The chicken in the 2nd enchilada was tough. The black beans , also on the plate, were delicious . There was a fancy white squiggle of something atop the enchiladas , but that doesnât impress me as much as the quality and taste . It just wasnât the greatest like I remembered it used to be! Also , the menu is enormous : so much to choose from. Too much .

You don't have to travel down to Mexico to enjoy the Real Food everyone's howling about... everyone's howling about... El Coyote in Monroe. El Coyote is new Mexican Cuisineâ¦ Your way. Always using the fresh ingredients. El Coyote will add just the right
I believe that the chef has been changed because there are new specials being offered that are quite interesting and delicious.We shared two entrees between us:Chimi Poblanas were two chimi shangas of beef, covered with dark mole sauce, served with rice and beans. Delicious!Steal and Camarone Diabla was a very large portion of steak cooked to your liking, served with shrimp and a spicy adobe sauce, with a large green salad. Wonderful.

Highly impressed with this restaurant for their authentic food, excellent service, reasonable prices and traditional Mexican ambiance. Their Guacamole made at your table is as fresh and authentic as you can get, staff is very friendly and attentive, they read your mind and serve what you want before you ask. We loved their Chicken Fajitas and Veggie Enchiladas. Iâll definitely recommend this place.

I frequently visit the Burrito Shack when I find myself in a pinch for dinner and we're never disappointed. They serve good burritos that are amply proportioned, a good value for the money. My son is fond of The Stoner. I myself prefer the crab burrito with mango habanero salsa. They also serve french fries an offer free refills on fountain soda.

Authentic Mexican food with styling and flavors from Oaxaca and many generations of family recipes.
Note: There used to be two Mexicali Rose restaurants but they lost their Bethel lease so for now it is only in Newtown. Ultra casual Mexican food made with love. No pretension here just 7 tables, funky art on the walls, colorful checkerboard floors and lots of charm in its own way. I lived all over California and this reminded me of a place I might happen upon after a long day at the beach, and immediately make it my go-to Mexican place. No guacamole made table-side (couldn't get a cart between the tables!) like so many places so score one for them for not getting on that trend. What they did serve were great nachos, excellent thick chips, and one of the best salsas around. Chile Relleno was really good - tender hot, spiced well. Delicious. Shrimp fajitas was distinguished by the poblano sauce and the shrimp themselves were large and flavorful. Not a sizzling make them yourself dish, so be forewarned. Rice and beans were excellent. Drinks come out of a refrigerator unit and alcohol is served as well if you are so inclined. This is a family business and it has been around for 20 years. They care about the food and it shows. You don't come here looking for fancy but what you do get is some of the best home-made Mexican food in CT.
