Take a Trip to Discover Delicious Mexican Cuisine Around New York

Mexican Food in Long Island

Are you tired of visiting the same old restaurants? Do you want something more exciting than a burger and fries? Check out these awesome restaurants that offer delicious Mexican cuisine across New York!


This unique gem is Marc LaMaina’s brain child. LaMaina had always dreamed of having his own restaurant and began his adventure after Hurricane Sandy devastated his Butta’ Cakes Cafe in 2012. So, he and his team transitioned their choice space into a modern and funky baja style taqueria & bar. “Lucharito” can be loosely translated to mean “little fighter.” And, using that as an inspiration, images of authentic Mexican wrestlers can be seen throughout the bar. This custom built bar will no doubt be the coolest thing you have ever rested your beer on.

Visit Lucharito’s for lunch or dinner every day of the week for a unique, and authentic Mexican cuisine experience.
