This is a fun, new place. Got seated right away and our server was lovely. Food is OK, not amazing. Many of the dishes were rather bland. That said , the street corn was really great. Fajitas were nice and hot, but not very spicy/savory. Guac was really good, but the chips seemed like they were out of a bag. We’ll definitely go back to give it another try. Gracias!

This is great Mexican food, fresh, perfectly-prepared, and gluten free! The place is not to be missed. It is a welcome change from Tex-Mex fare, the variety is great, and the atmosphere is quiet and friendly. It has gone right onto our short list of regular stops!

Food and service were excellent! Dishes were all a nice size, a range of types of food, both healthy and less healthy options. Dessert was delicious, the churro sundae especially!

Cute little place with great food & service. Everything was delicous. Wednesdays half price drinks all day - Sangria was fab & only $4.50 for a huge glass on Wednesday. Can't wait for margarita Monday with half price delicious margarita. Really worth a try.

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

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.
