By Karen Talbot

Nov. 15, 2017:  Do you love Mexican food?  Well, we have some great local Mexican restaurants.  Here is information about five delicious local Mexican restaurants. Enjoy!


7 Pondfield Road, Bronxville


The Manager of Blue Moon Mexican Cafe, Dave Vazquez, describes the food as Tex-Mex fare, an example of which is the Blue Moon Fajitas, consisting of steak, chicken, shrimp or vegetables with sautéed peppers and onions with refried beans and rice, served with warm tortillas.

The menu is quite large with a variety of Appetizers, Dinner Entrees, Dinner Salads, Combination Platters and Burgers.  Of course, there is delicious home- made guacamole, sangria and margaritas.

Fiesta Hour (Happy Hour)! Fiesta Hour is served at the bar Mon. - Thurs 4 to 7pm and Fri. 3 to 7pm.  Fiesta Hour specials include:  Beer, Margaritas, Sangria and Mixed Drinks.  You can order Fiesta Hour Appetizers:  Nachos, Taquitos and Cheese Quesadillas.  

Ladies Night:  Every Thursday (7pm to close) is a special ladies night featuring specially priced:  skinny margaritas, house margaritas and sangria.  

Turn your next party into a Fiesta at Blue Moon Mexican Cafe.  Blue Moon is happy to host a party at their location or cater the party at your home or office.  Blue Moon also offers daily free local delivery for lunch and dinner.
