  • Great guacamole.
  • Mexican owned and operated. This stalwart has survived every El Barrios transformation in tact. If Los Angelenos are dining inside, you know that it has to be good! That back room needs live music.
  • Everything in this place is authentic, the grilled tacos are amazing and I always order my guacamole super spicy , then wash it down with a michilada, heaven!!!!
  • Great guac and margaritas. Lovely ambiance since their reno a while back. Easy place to meet being literally steps to the subway and downtown bus on Lex !
  • Super cute restaurant with a nice ambiance. Great place for a date night or just even out with a friend. I also really like their frozen margarita.
  • Best Mexican in NYC. Worth the trip. Great friendly staff. Food is so authentic. Not heavy sauce laden like other 'Mexican' places.
  • Great place in the neighborhood to go for a nice lunch or dinner.
  • Amazing food, and the staff here are like family to us. Totally takes the edge off an otherwise rough and unbearably macho neighborhood. Worth the trip from any borough!
  • The pomegranate sangria is amazing!
  • Great guacamole -- amazing margaritas and wonderful atmosphere
  • Carnitas Michoacanas
  • Sidle up to tequila flights, mezcal cocktails, and a fresh seafood-filled menu at the southwest and Day of the Dead-inspired restaurant.
  • Try the tortilla soup! It's heart & belly warming, light, delicate and perfectly seasoned. The soft, salty cheese and avocado pull the whole thing together. Awesome meal for the price!
  • Delicious margaritas.
  • The shrimp tacos are spicy. They make fresh juices. Got mine to go. Carrot, celery, orange. They put ice cubes in it.
  • Nice Mexican spot in the heart of Spanish Harlem. The food is ok, but don't order crazy stuff: stick to the basics. Try the guava margarita if you have a sweet tooth.
  • Viva Mexico
  • Guac is delicious. Ask for it spicy.
  • Try the pork tacos w pineapple..very tasty!
  • Horrible. Portions were small, food wasn't seasoned. Def not a place for people who are seeking REAL and AUTHENTIC Mexican food.
