Not really Mexican, and not traditional BBQ, Mexicue takes flavors from both cooking styles to create its own thing, and after trying a couple sliders at Madison Square Eats, I can say it really works. I personally love both Mexican food and BBQ, and although I had heard good things about Mexicue, sometimes these fusion concepts end up being a lesser version of both types of food. But both the Mexicue Alabama BBQ Chicken Slider (with lettuce, cotija cheese, and their “chipotle mayo-ish” bama sauce) and the Pulled Pork slider (with guacamole spread, pickled red onions, and BBQ sauce) were flavorful, savory, and satisfying. They sort of taste like what you would expect given the ingredients, so if it sounds at all good, definitely try them.
