The town that I grew up in on Long Island is relatively small.
As a result, my parents and I are repeat offenders at the same four restaurants, one of them being Mexican.
I'm not sure if it's out of habit but I love Amigos.
(They have since closed but that's a whole other story).
Since moving to Manhattan 7 years ago I've been on the hunt for a Mexican restaurant of similar quality.
The hunt was not a success.
However, the other day, the BF and I came across Caliente Cab Co.
While they are not nearly as good as Amigos, the food was quite tasty.
If your in the West Village it's worth a try.
