Mexican Radio began its life twelve years ago as a "jaunty candlelit shoebox" on Mulberry Street in Little Italy, NYC.

The next four years were a proven testament to Mexican Radio's award-winning margaritas and delicious home-style cooking as Mexican Radio repeatedly took top honors as Best Mexican Restaurant in NYC. Two-and-a-half-hour waiting-list lines continually streamed around the block as loyal customers cried, "Time for expansion ... please!"

In June 2000, Mexican Radio moved around the corner to its current home at 19 Cleveland Place — happy to stay in the neighborhood which had so fervently embraced the business—and increasing seating capacity from a jam-packed 20 to over 100 people.

The front section of the Cleveland Place location is a tribute to the tiny Mulberry Street storefront where it all began. Upon opening the doors of their new location, a glowing review appeared in The New York Post saying "If there could be a shrine to Mexican food, Mexican Radio would be it!" And so it continues. Mexican Radio's fabulous comfort food and stellar margaritas continue win praises from around the world, including 2007 Best Flan in America from Latina Magazine.

In June 2003, Mexican Radio opened its second location in Hudson, NY, and the response has been warm and embracing. Mexican Radio has won Best Mexican Restaurant in the Capital Region 2007 (Capital Region Living Magazine), Best Margarita in the Hudson Valley 2007 (Hudson Valley Magazine) and is the 2007 Runner-Up for Best Restaurant in Columbia County (Capital Region Living Magazine).

Mexican Radio Hudson continues the company tradition of being a community-committed organization and, just like its sister restaurant down in NYC, the front section of the Hudson restaurant again gives tribute to the tiny storefront where it all began eleven years ago.

Mexican Radio wants to thank all of our staff and customers in both locations for so much loyal and continued support throughout the years!

Muchissimas Gracias!

As a founding member of the Columbia County Bounty, Mexican Radio is proud to use as much local product as we possibly can. We create authentic Mexican dishes using authentic Hudson Valley product. You can find the chef in the mornings picking through the produce at Holmquest Farms in Hudson and Elysian Farms in Stuyvesant. We love the milk we get from Ronny Brook Farms and our goat cheese from Coach Farm!
