  • bring cash!
  • Top billing goes to the carne asada. With flavor so intense, its hard to justify ordering anything else. That said, the pulled pork and pollo asado (grilled chicken) are also excellent.
  • straight up taco pig-out
  • I'm a Californian and I approve these burritos.
  • The green salsa is like crack!
  • Crack sauce? Yes please. Tip the short brunette well.
  • Try the Barrio Brown Ale, brewed especially for them by Red Hook neighbor, Sixpoint.
  • Their crack sauce is a winner.
  • It's called Calexico Carne Asada for a reason -- the meat is cooked perfectly. Get the tacos!
  • You know that kickass Mexican food cart in Soho? Well... they have a restaurant en route to IKEA with the best burritos in NYC. Ask for the 'crack sauce'.
  • If you like the restaurant, try the band! The poster in their bathroom is from indie darlings Calexico.
  • Steak or Chicken burritos with crack sauce! You're welcome.
  • Crack sauce!
  • Only open till 11:00 PM, NOT 2 AM as the foursquare listing states. Many a disappointed, hungry soul has discovered this the hard way on Columbia St.
  • Most of the menu quite good, but beware can sometimes take a while to get your food. Also, pumpkin seed arbol salsa FTW.
  • one of the best mexican restaurants in the city. The taco are phenomenal and the watermelon juice is really refresing.
  • The veggie burrito with black beans & jalepenos all day!
  • Carne asada grilled quesadilla. The only four words you need to know; they will treat you right.
  • Carne Asada Tacos!
  • I can't eat tacos from anywhere else anymore.
