Got the brisket and it was the best thing I've ever had. Speechless.

We're so proud of our steak dishes, LJ, so it's really exciting that you enjoyed them enough to leave us this fantastic rating! Thank you so much for your support. -Roe

Get the two fruits! Chips and salsa are good. Food has been hit or miss. I liked the steak and my friend got the salmon which was also good. Enchiladas are meh. Carnitas are pretty good-good mix of fatty and seasoned well.

I can be a picky diner. Case in point, a few days ago I walked a couple miles and passed dozens of restaurants in Chelsea, Hell's Kitchen and Midtown looking for a dining spot. Folks, this is Manhattan. Anyone who can't find a place to eat within a few blocks of searching has be a picky eater. I am trying to maintain my successful 25lb weight loss this past year while still enjoying food. Rocking Horse Cafe is on my favorite list for this. My staple here is the Grilled Vegetable Burrito (that comes with black beans and rice,) along with a side of guacamole that complements the complementary chips and savory dip. Food is great. Service is fast. The staff is very friendly. But, most of the all, the other diners of this popular spot are the primary draw. Lots of eye candy for sure, but more importantly, the overheard conversations of this bustling establishment have probably inspired a few drama/comedy TV episodes via the many entertainment and celebrity diners in the area. I have seen my share of movie and TV actors here. Not to name any names, two actors I have seen were in Showtimes "Nurse Jackie" and the Facebook movie, "The Social Network," respectively.

Thank you for this amazing review you left us in January, Charles! I'm happy to hear our Grilled Vegetable Burrito is able to please a "picky" eater like you -- it let's me know we're doing something right in the kitchen. We look forward to welcoming you back for another great meal (and you'll have to let me know which celebs you've seen in our cafe sometime). Warm regards, Roe

Delicious margarita!! And super creative too. The food was really yummy, and it was exactly what we were hankering that day. My only complaint would be that when I asked to switch out chicken for steak in a chimichanga, I was told it couldn't be done since they were premade. The waiter seemed like he wasn't really into it either.
Response from the owner - 6 months ago
I'm happy to hear you enjoyed our margaritas, but I have to say I'm a little confused -- we don't serve chimichangas at our cafe. I'm wondering if you meant to leave this review for a different restaurant, or perhaps you had something that was similar to a chimichanga at our cafe. We'd love to have you by any time to try our Mexican food though. All the best, Roe
