Foursquare Tips

  • A "palapa" is an open-air, thatched-roof structure; they're useful common spaces on hot, sunny days. Get the jicama with lime and chile, a popular and refreshing treat for just such days.
  • Huevos Rancheros are amazing with a side of sweet plantains
  • Best frozen margaritas! Food comes out quick & hot. Great Mexican food and great service. Guacamole isn't special but the 2 green sauces are amaze!
  • Recommend the Huevos Monteleos. Every flavor you could ever want in one dish. Bacon. Eggs. Cheese. Plantains. Crispy tortilla.
  • Michelada is magical. One of the best I've had. And I have had a milli
  • Please go on Sunday. Great specials, no wait and you can't beat the huevos choices and margaritas!
  • Best frozen margaritas in the city. Get the shrimp quesadillas and guac, you won't be disappointed. Still hungry? PLANTAINS.
  • One of the best brunch specials in NYC
  • Rainy day - time to eat some really spicy Guacamole with Cahr-grilled serranos!!
  • Fish Tacos!!
  • Choriqueso!!!
  • There's a guy that comes out of nowhere that keeps pouring water into your cup regardless of how much of it you drink... He scares me every time
  • The blood orange margaritas were amazing! As were the chicken enchiladas!
  • Get the tacos or quesadillas with al pastor de pork. With a side of plantains and the best frozen margaritas in the city, of course.
  • Vegan plate $19-grilled cactus, red beans, guacamole, salsa, sauted mushrooms and corn, served with warm tortillas. Ask for hot sauce & get 3 from mild to spicy.
  • Happy hour Tuesday's are the move! Plus birthdays in the back room are always fun.
  • Amazing Mexican food!
  • Very average
  • Taquitos de papa were awesome, but barbacoa is not real Mexican barbacoa, they pour a guajillo sauce on it that is good, but takes the flavor out of the lamb. For appetizers go with jicama.
  • Ambiance is what really makes this place. Go for a michelada or a margarita with guac
