Going to add to the chorus of praise. I've gone twice already. Yesterday and today. Both times for breakfast. I've had the chilaquiles and the Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon. I'm a convert. Both my wife and I agree that the chilaquiles may be the best we've ever had, and I loved loved loved the Benedict. Could have been cooked through just a touch less, but it was still deliciously gooey. And the cayenne (?) sprinkled on top was a nice touch. What's even better is that the price is the same whether you get the Canadian bacon or salmon. I love it! The home fries were also super flavorful.

I've got to say, Queensboro has some competition for this household. But they're definitely going to appeal to different people. I wish Laly's all the luck in the world. They deserve your business. If you're sitting on the sidelines, just go.

Wife and I went to Laly's this AM and the breakfast was great.  The Huevos Rancheros are out of this world.  I would highly recommend this place to anyone in the neighborhood. We plan to try them for dinner next.

My husband and I ate there for lunch yesterday. We had a quesadilla and the steak tacos--all ingredients were fresh, the food was perfectly prepared, the steak in the tacos was cooked medium--you could tell the meat was not sitting for hours, it was made to order. The sauces and salsas were fresh tasting and delicious and the guacamole was perfection. They don't have a liquor license yet, but there's a bar area set up in the back and the manager said it's coming soon. There were fresh flowers on all the tables with CLEAN water in the vases: a sure sign that someone actually cares. It's a great addition to the neighborhood and I hope many people will support them. Can't wait to try them for dinner. They deliver, too!

Will weigh in here as well...had a great breakfast yesterday trying the Eggs Benedict with Salmon and the Chilaquiles.  The poached eggs were perfectly cooked--definitely a sign that the cook knows what he is doing. Even the side of home fried potatoes were tasty.  The Chilaquiles also very good, included chicken as well as fried eggs.  The salsa verde had the right spiciness (unlike Juquila where it is so spicy).  This ranks up there with some of the memorable huevos I have had in Mexico.  The menu seems made for me, can't wait to try Fish Tacos and some of the other dishes for dinner.  This seems to be run by a family that cares--good service and small touches like the cold bottle of water is nice. They may work on decor a bit as they succeed.  This will definitely be my go to place for Breakfast and Mexican food.

Hello Jackson Heights Life !

I’m Rigo, manager of Laly’s Restaurant. My apologies for taking a while to introduce ourselves here on Jackson Heights Life. I’ve been hearing from our guests that I should come here and read what the community has to say about us. First, I would like to thank everyone who has already given us the chance to visit & try us out! I’ve probably met some of you whether it’s been here at the restaurant or while I’ve delivered your food at your homes.

I can understand our concept might be a bit confusing as to who we are or what we’re trying to achieve. Here’s our story: Dionisio & Baltazar, brother in-laws, always had a dream of opening up a restaurant together with the concept of serving their community. They both have over 15 years experience working in well known restaurants in NYC as cooks, sous chefs, executive chefs, they’ve done it all. They both reside 10 minutes away from Laly’s Restaurant and were just waiting for the perfect opportunity to open a restaurant. McDonald’s on the corner of 76th & Roosevelt closed down and they saw the perfect opportunity. Their mission was to serve their community & they came up with the “American & Mexican”concept . Ive known Dionisio & Baltazar for years & they reached out to me & offered me the chance to be part of the team and run the front of house. I’ve been also working front of house positions since I was 15 years old. Our main focus is being part of the community & serving the freshest food. We get some of our meat & dairy products from Sullivan farms from upstate NY. & I’m Tuesday’s we’ll even make a run to our farmers market on Tuesdays & get local vegetables from Gageski Produce from Riverhead Long Island. We offer a mixture of both American & Mexican platters for breakfast, lunch & dinner. From homemade blueberry pancakes , eggs Benedict to chilaquiles & huevos rancheros. For burgers & sandwiches we offer our already popular cemita burger (8oz of fresh beef cooked to your liking topped with queso Oaxaca, avocado papalo)  & our bacon, egg, lettuce, tomato sandwich (B.E.L.T) served on a ciabatta.

    We are still waiting on our liquor permit. Once we get the OK, we plan on offering local craft bottled beers as well as Mexican beers. We are currently working on getting a draft beer system put together. Our cocktail menu will consist of , fresh margaritas with choices of fresh flavors available to add. Not only margaritas but we will also add some signature cocktails that will include fresh ingredients as well.

  Service for us is very important. Dionisio, Baltazar & I are here every single day & this our new home. And we want everyone who steps in through our doors feel the same way. Please give us a try & feel free to ask for me. & to those who have already tried us out I thank you again & thanks for the feedback as well.

Sounds amazing! Can't wait to try it. Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself here and tell us a bit about the story behind the restaurant.

Sounds great--I stopped by just today and picked up a menu. I was thinking about ordering delivery last night, as a matter of fact, but could not find your menu online yet. I hope your drink offerings will also include at least some wines. I look forward to coming in (or ordering) soon--I live just a block and a half away. I like the fact that you offer both Mexican options and American ones, by the way. My husband and I need to eat lighter and less spicy fare much of the time, and it looks like you do offer dishes that fit our needs. I hope things go well for Laly's!

Chiming in to add my praise. I've ordered online (through seamless) and visited in person now. The food was excellent in both instances. Dining-in, I found the service to be fantastic and the space spotless. Also, they have great coffee and a chill vibe. Welcome to the neighborhood, all! We'll be back soon!

After a tasty breakfast at Laly's, went back for dinner this week.  Both the fish tacos and chicken quesadilla were really good.  Service was very good both times--i like that they provide a cold bottle of water, and replace it.  It wasn't that crowded on Friday evening--but once they offer beer and alcohol, it probably will pick up.  Wishing them success...

 One more accolade. We both had fish entrees and they were super fresh and tasty.The little bits of fresh mango in the fish tacos
along with onions and pepper. Fish cooked perfectly. Fries are just the way I like them with skins on, done but not burnt. They
hit a spot in the neighborhood that was open for this kind of healthy, tasty Mexican food. Yes, the street carts are good but if you
want to sit and have a bit higher quality ingredients, this is the place.

We had dinner there last night--and we agree the food was delicious. We had the chicken quesadilla and the house salad with grilled salmon. At around 7 PM when we left, the place was literally empty. I hope business picks up for them -- it's a great option and I hope they make it! The liquor license should make a difference. But spread the word--they deserve to succeed.

Had breakfast at Laly's this AM (based on recommendations here). Excellent chilaquiles and really, really, good pancakes. Highly recommend.

There for dinner and it was outstanding - had the "Roosevelt Ave" street corn and also the Cemita Burger. The burger itself was cooked perfectly and the quality and the portions were great. Service was really nice too.
