Over the years, I’ve frequented Carlos & Gabby's in the Riverdale neighborhood of the Bronx, a Glatt Kosher Mexican restaurant that's become a staple in New York City's dining scene. Riverdale is their fourth location, following the original in Lawrence, Long Island, a spot in Brooklyn on Coney Island Ave, and another in Queens on Main Street.

 

Founded in 2006, Carlos & Gabby's has set itself apart in the Kosher Mexican niche. Their menu blends Mexican favorites with American classics, complemented by a variety of sauces like Tangy BBQ, Avocado Ranch, and Creamy Caesar. This mix of culinary excellence at reasonable prices has made them a landmark in Kosher dining.

The Riverdale branch, under the strict supervision of the Vaad of Riverdale, continues this tradition, offering a kid-friendly environment and a menu catering to both adults and children. They're also open late for those late-night burrito cravings. Their menu is known for its variety and quality, consistent with their reputation across their other locations.
