I am from Austin, TX and have been in NYC about 7 years now searching for decent Tex-Mex, but haven't found any, much less good Tex-Mex. Sure there are places to get your fix, or have fun, but the food is nowhere close to the realm of the genuine or delicious food I grew up with. When I heard about Lobo, I was excited, but doubtful, I had heard rave reviews about Rosa Mexicana and others afterall and we know how that turns out, but figured I'd try. I ordered an iced tea, of course, and it came in a BIG glass with a lime and free refills. No nestea, no tiny glass. Now we're on the right track, i thought. Then we ordered Queso. I've made this mistake in NY before, but figured I'd try it. To my shock, it was made the right way! Delish! 2 for 2! Then kept going! I ordered the Sassy Mama Enchiladas which come with a side of rice and beans. Get this, the rice was spiced correctly and did not contain peas! 3 for 3! FANTASTIC! The beans were good without adding salt too! More tea coming. I can't believe i found it! The margaritas were great, the service was good, there is an outside space with a bar, it must be too good to be true! I've been back 3 times now in 10 days. I agree with all of the great reviews. The writers of the bad reviews either like something that is not true tex-mex, work at a competitor, or just plain have no taste. GO THERE TODAY AND SAVE ME A SEAT.
Pros: THE BEST
Cons: its not closer to me
