Tips

  • Like your drink sweet and spicy? Then the Blackberry Michelada is definitely for you! Negra Modelo + blackberries + grapefruit juice + tajin + salt!
  • Brunch is reasonably priced and they let pups sit outside!
  • Guac presentation is beautiful!
  • Rigo, the bartender, makes some mean mezcal cocktails. The matador norteno was delicious.
  • El Chamuco; A mix of tequila blanco, mezcal, creme de cassis, homemade ginger beer, and lime juice. The combination is light, refreshing, complex, and smoky, all at the same time.
  • They have dog-friendly food for pups!
  • Awesome margaritas!
  • Go for happy hour. $8 for 2 awesome fish tacos.
  • Great cocktails, attentive and friendly service, and a good location that is the perfect combination of relaxed but upbeat, intimate, and welcoming. Super authentic. Can't wait to come back.
  • Hidden gem of a restaurant in the LES. Hangar steak was delicious and the potatoes were next level. Cheesy amazingness. Short rib was good too and guac is a great starter. Solid cocktails.
  • Solid mezcal and pulque based drinks and solid Mexican fare make this tiny bar a worthwhile visit. Guac with pomegranate seeds and crab tostada were both solid. I liked the spicy Oaxaca Express.
  • Amazing food, amazing service! Be sure to get enchiladas, guacamole and fish tacos!! The oaxaca mescal drink!!
  • Great guacamole - highly recommend the one with pomegranate seeds. Do be warned that the restaurant is small and the service is quite slow.
  • Alex is a great bartender
  • Excellent mezcal and pulque drinks from Rigo and Alex
  • El Chamuco is a mix of tequila blanco, mezcal, creme de cassis, homemade ginger beer, and lime juice.
  • Order the Pisco Sour from Alex, with the tostada con cangrejo. YUM.
  • Small cozy place with super-friendly staff.
  • Great food, good prices, try the Cocktails and the avocado dip
  • My meal was pleasing!
