expensive and bland
Underseasoned which is a relief from that horrid chiis and applebees crap but lacking any authenticity of flavor. It stands alone in upper montlcair so you have no choice, but its high priced small portions wont keep me coming back. Maybe i should order something different?

You can't beat $5 lunch specials!
Having never been to Mexico, I can't say how "authentic" the food is. All I can say is that it's delicious, and I eat lunch there several times a week.

Overpriced Taco Bell
Not sure why this place is always crowded, the service is bad, the food is far worse. A lot of better Mexican restaurants in the area. I would actually pick taco bell over Tinga (and I HATE Taco Bell).

Cheap. Health-conscious recipes. Sometimes tasty. But so inconsistent I've thrown out delivery as inedible.

The most BORING Mexican food we've ever tasted! Good portions, but no taste. Very crowded and loud.

overpriced, mediocre food. If it wasn't in such a high-traffic area, it would probably go out of business.
