This was one of the best Mexican places I have ever been to! The food was so fresh and huge. Make sure you share their main courses, because nobody can finish that Burrito! I ordered the fresh guacamole and it was absolutely fantastic! The atmosphere was nice, place was quite small. I thought it was worth the money, it wasn't too expensive for the quality you get! 


This is not your average Upper East Side Mexican restaurant. Mole is a step way above the others in the area. There is a lively atmosphere pretty much any night you go in, and the wait staff are super helpful, and friendly. Start with some amazing made to order guacamole and chips. The chiles rellenos are a delicious vegetarian main course option that come served with creamy refried beans and rice. The shredded chicken enchiladas topped with green sauce are fantastic as well. Be sure to try some potent cocktails like the Smoky Margarita or the uniquely named, Sex in a Mexican Prison.

Love their margaritas - they use a slightly spicy salt that makes them irresistible.  The foods top notch as well.
