We like Mexican food and forgot about this neighborhood place. We were seated promptly and pleasantly, received a great margarita. We ordered the house salad which has a different taste than what I thought, full of nuts and seeds and a good dressing. One dish was a giant serving of Chile Rellenos which was served piping hot with plenty of rice and beans as the side. The other dish was Chicken Enchiladas which was served the same way, piping hot and plentiful. The only problem for older diners is the location on Stone Street, which is quite narrow and crowded at times, but has a great vibe. This place is a winner!

I absolutely love eating at Mad Dog & Beans Mexican Cantina! I only go down to stone street during the week, as we all know the financial district is dead on the weekends. However, this is definitely my number one pick. They have some of the best mexican in manhattan! The guacamole is a must and so is their sangria. It is also a great place for groups!
