Mexican Connection claims it was the first to bring Mexican food to the Capital Region, in 1979. Whether or not this is true, I can’t say. But I can say that I had a pleasant dinner there. Kiyo and I ventured there one night to try something different; it’s not on the main “strip” of Saratoga, Broadway, so it peaked our interest. If you’re a visitor to the area, you definitely need to drive or take a taxi if you’re going at night, it would simply be too confusing to find, even if you were up for the mile-plus walk. They have ample parking (since it’s nestled amongst houses), which is refreshing after trying to park at other, more frequented restaurants on crowded Broadway.
I believe I had a pulled chicken or pork burrito and Kiyo had his favorite, enchiladas. I remember loving the sauce generously heaped onto my plate; it was some iteration of sour cream. While their food isn’t incredible or avant-garde, it was very good. It’s a place I haven’t been to in a few years but would definitely revisit for a fun, unpretentious night out.
