Popojito never disappoints! I love the medmex bowl with grilled octopus, salmon or shrimp. Delicious!
And we don't have to worry about any gluten cross contamination because they are totally gluten free!

Very good, helpful servers. The food was a bit uneven. The beef brisket burrito and the bowl were great. The tacos were OK. Not special. The low point were the side condiments: eg the very salty chipotle mayo that came with the fried yuka should not be served. Not a bad value and child friendly. With a little attention to detail this place could be on our regular visit list.

Loved the food, salad and tacos were fabulous, as were the drinks. The noise level was the only thing that might keep us going back. The place was practically empty, but the voices of a party on the other side of the room bounced off the cement walls and back at the two of us, making it difficult to hold back ur own conversation. Will definitely consider take-out!

Great food! So nice to not have to worry about food being gluten free. Dairy free can easily be accommodated. Nice variety of food. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meals...even those without dietary restrictions. And the gluten free churros are heavenly

My wife loves traditional Mexican food and we wanted to find a new place. I saw PopoJito’s listed in Open Table and thought I would give it a try. The space is open and modern. The sangria was tasty. I was surprised that there was a charge for salsa and chips but this was downtown Scarsdale so the rents must be high. As it turned out she didn’t care for the spicy thick salsa they served. She ordered chicken tacos and thought they were excellent (high praise) and I had chicken and steak fajitas also very good. The waitstaff were nice and they came to check to make sure everything’s was to our liking. The portions were generous and we took some leftovers home. We will be back again

Excellent gluten free option / celiac safe choice. They have updated the menu and are grateful for feedback related to items & service. We have noticed improvements since our last visit and food options were good

Wanted to try a new Mexican restaurant as we couldn’t find one worth frequenting in the area. This restaurant is gluten free but wasn’t the reason why we chose to dine here as we’re not gluten free diners. This was our second time here in less than a week. The food is fresh and tasty. Service and staff are great and very accommodating. Prices are average for the area and won’t break the bank. The one complaint is the $6 up charge for premium tequila in a standard margarita bringing the price to $16. But that won’t stop us from returning. We’ll be back!

It was great to find a strictly gluten-free restaurant with innovative food. The gf churros were a fun treat—but not for sharing (they come 3 to a plate and are small, so get your own). The Greek-inspired rice balls were a hit although the truffle fries with cotija didn’t really taste of truffles or cotija. The pulpo a la plancha was not as delicious as it sounded... the octopus was a bit over cooked and the sauce didn’t match it that well. Still, it was fun to try new things.

I can’t say enough about our experience. The food was wonderful; tacos, quesadillas and bowls are fresh and delicious. Our server, I can’t remember her name, and one of the owners, Ronnie, frequently stopped by our table to ensure all was to our liking. The margaritas at PopoJito are excellent. They offer several different flavors but I like the classic best of all. It gets crowded and they do a big take out service so get a reservation. This is our favorite restaurant in Scarsdale.

The kitchen was ridiculously slow. Waited the better part of an hour to get 6 tacos and kid’s sliders. Food was good

I’d like tor go back at a slower time.

The food was delicious - each time we come it gets better! It was prime time weekend hours and the restaurant was full of families with kids (ourselves included) but the service was still great despite how busy! I had the rancher bowl and it was absolutely delicious and I love that you can get the tacos in lettuce instead of tortilla!! It does get crowded and it’s tight quarters but the food is good enough and the atmosphere casual enough to ignore the crowd!

Can't wait to return asap to this new go to spot for healthy and delicious food in the area. Delicious flavors make healthy eating so much more exciting. The staff and owner especially made sure we had a phenomenal experience. I am still thinking about the soup! To indulge, I tried the spicy margarita with chipotle rim and it was extraordinary. Sweet and spicy and just the right amount of tequila. Thank you for the wonderful dinner.

Fun, lively place. Has only about 40 seats so I was glad I made a reservation. Had the El Diablo margarita which was really good. I shared tacos with my date. Our favorites were the short rib and the Brussels sprouts and mushrooms. I would definitely go back. Server also told me they're starting a brunch menu in a couple of weeks.

Mixed opinion amongst our group. While I thought most of the items weren't very good (we tried 8 different appetizers and tacos), my cohorts liked it, so I'm rating PopoJito 3 stars. To me, most of the dishes lacked much in the way of taste, even with the addition of the "hot" sauces, none of which are particularly hot. For example, the salmon taco is overwhelmed by the mango, and this is even though I like mango very much. The quesadillas are very cheesy, so there isn't any subtle flavors coming through. I'd recommend only two items, the chili, which is meat in a sauce and not a typical Tex-Mex version, and the chicken taco. Otherwise, unless you need a gluten-free restaurant, this isn't the place to go. BTW, because it is small and reasonable, reservations are necessary on weekends.
