Mexican Radio coming to Schenectady

mexican radio hudsonSteve reported this weekend that Mexican Radio will be opening a location in Schenectady, address to be announced. The owner tells the Gazette's Jessica Harding that they were "seriously considering" Albany, but ended up liking "the vibe" in Schenectady.

Mexican Radio's first location opened in Manhattan in the 90s. Its second location, on Warren Street in Hudson, opened in 2003 (photos).

We've eaten at the Hudson location a few times -- it was pretty good. Jess is a big fan of the flan there. The Yelpers have been generally favorable (seemingly the most consistent complaint: price).

Oh, yeah: Sonic tells the Gazette's Ameerah Cetawayo that a Capital Region location is "only just a matter of time." Currently, the closest Sonic location is in Kingston.

This means the flan will be even closer: http://alloveralbany.com/archive/2009/06/02/flan-at-mexican-radio

Oooooh, now we just need a CHIK FIL A and the Capital Region will be fast food complete!

This is sweet!! Mexican Radio is so awesome.. more flan for me!

@ashallann: I ADORE Chick-Fil-A!! I also continue to lament the lack of White Castles in the capital region.

I am looking forward to checking out Mexican Radio. I've heard great things.

OMG OMG OMG Sonic. One of the few things I miss about living in the South/Midwest. Now we just need a QuikTrip.

Chick-Fil-A is run by religious bigots who give huge amounts of money to Focus on the Family, which is virulently anti-gay and, as I recently learned at school (!), hands out anti-choice pamphlets with completely false information. I will never, ever give them my money. (A little info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chik-Fil-A#Religious_connections)

Also, I like the idea that the *Schenectady Gazette* has a paywall. Dude, the New York Times couldn't get people to pay, and they have Pulitzers and stuff.

Mmmm. Sonic.

I'll just echo what I said over on Table Hopping.

Flan flan flan flan flan...

I'll go for the flan (still haven't tried it). But I'll be getting my burritos elsewhere. And it won't be from Bombers.

Unless they are considering lowering their prices for the Schenectady branch. How they can justify upwards of $20 for a burrito is beyond me. And don't tell me local ingredients, because other places buy from local farms and still charge much much less.

This is slightly surprising. If they go downtown, it will be a nice alternative to the Bombers experience. Although I find it hard to believe $20.00 burritos won't do well in Sch'dy.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
