Foursquare Tips

  • This lively eatery pulls in Brooklynites looking for both homey abuela standbys (rich, cilantro-nipped guac; fragrant pozole verde) and palate-expanding fare (tongue tacos, duck-leg tamales).
  • Try Margarita de toronja picante. The best.
  • Great! Guacamole, fish tacos, carnitas tacos all terrific. The salsas that come with the tacos are delicious, especially the spicy one.
  • "Make sure other Foursquare users know not to come here," my friends said, and I complied.
  • Drink the Margarita de toronja picante. It will burn your lips off
  • Awful food. Try some other spot
  • Margarita de Toronja Picante. Jalapeo syrup, habanero-infused tequila. Spice up your life, or something.
  • Be sure to check out the cool DUMBO-themed day of the dead wallpaper.
  • The food here is damn good. And I'm not saying so because I drank a 32oz Corona Familiar because they also messed up my credit card charge & I was mistaken for a blind-date hipster. Still, great food.
  • Try the tongue tacos so they can taste you while you taste them.
  • The tortillas are pressed in-house and the cocktails change with the season at this Mexican restaurant owned by the folks behind Colonie.
  • Service is slow! !!!!!
  • Get the horchata for dessert.
  • Visiting our #People exhibition at Brooklyn Bridge Park? Stop here for dinner and order the fish tacos! They're a #StaffPick fave of our Communications team.
  • The fish tacos are sublime, as is the guacamole, but we liked everything. Good, helpful wait staff as well. A keeper!
  • Carnitas tacos are sublime! Portions are pretty small so you'll definitely want to order a few. Chiles rellenos and scallop dish (ceviche style) were also fantastic and incredibly flavorful.
  • La Gran Margarita FTW!
  • Don't even try to get in if you look Hispanic.They'll tell you "there's a 20 minute wait" but they'll end up letting anyone else in, even with no reservations. It is ironic that it is a Mexican place.
  • Backyard is not open in March (even when it's 70 degrees)
  • Drinks were good. Guacamole is surprisingly weak.
