At this point, you’re probably annoyed with bad reviews, but I promise an amazing one is coming up next. Wait up for “Exelencia Mexicana” in Mahopac, NY.
So this place has been in my town for over a year now. When I first heard of it, I didn’t hear good things. Someone I knew told me they went there and the fries were burnt, the customer service was a mess, and more. I decided not to go and to give it time.
Another thing that kept me from going was just the feel of the restaurant. Somers restaurants, 85% of the time, don’t have a comfortable feel. Even if you’re a Somers resident, you might not feel like you belong.
Customer Service: Not a huge fan of the customer service here aside from the hostess, who was extremely sweet. You could tell no one wanted to help you out. Our waitress came at the beginning and maybe at the end? I can’t remember but I do remember we went really long without her coming over, even though I could see her standing against the wall for a really long time.
Some info: They apparently make all of their sauces themselves. I’ve had two or three of them and while one was amazing, the other was no good.
Atmosphere: I kind of felt like I walked into some cheap cafeteria. The place used to be really high-end so I was surprised to see people wearing t-shirts and writing the server’s names on the paper tablecloths. It’s like they were trying to be family friendly and failed. Whoops.
Menu: Click here for the menu I’m about to discuss. I looked at the menu ahead of time but didn’t look for long. I knew I’d just end up getting a burger… it’s a burger place… Also the friend I was with had been there before so I looked forward to getting some of her suggestions.
Drinks: Okay so this isn’t really a big deal but their ginger ale was disgusting. WHAT THE HELL. I did not want to be one of those people who complained about everything when I obviously was picking it all apart but like it wasn’t even a seltzer or syrup problem, it just tasted bad and cheap.
$$$: Pretty good prices. What you would expect from a burger place. I’m glad they didn’t try to overprice us, which I was worried about because of the town it was located in.
Food: As you can see, they definitely know how to plate their food in a fun way.
Overall, My food was just okay. I would probably go back and order something completely different but I definitely would not I would go back to get the same stuff. At some point I asked for honey mustard and it was like just honey. The chipotle sauce had no flavour to it, it was just spicy. There is nothing to rave about here. It’s a restaurant that can’t even live up to it’s title.

Let me know what you think below! Have you tried it? Do you COMPLETELY DISAGREE about the burgers?
