    A very friendly neighborhood spot in East Harlem, serves as a date night spot also. Food here is delicious and the staff is very friendly and helpful in deciding as per your taste buds.

    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.

    Truly authentic Al pastor and carnitas tacos. Ceviche cozumel very fresh. Quesadilla, sopa azteca, enchiladas suizas. Everything on the menu is delish, cant wait to try the rest.

    Chile relleno with the seafood and chipotle cream was fresh and delicious!!! They have the nice think tortilla chips for salsa. Upgraded ingredients make this place stand out.

    Weekends 11-4: underwhelming brunch menu only (unlimited mimosas / bellinis with entrées like French toast just don't hit my Mexican spot). Not cheap ($6 Tecate). Go for tamales & tacos. Guac is bomb!

    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.

    Good margarita selection. For brunch it seemed like a large majority of the options were savory but large portions.

    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!

    Best Mexican in NYC. Worth the trip. Great friendly staff. Food is so authentic. Not heavy sauce laden like other 'Mexican' places.

    Place is so cute, food is great! Only thing is it took some while to get the plates and the place was kind of empty..

    The shrimp tacos are spicy. They make fresh juices. Got mine to go. Carrot, celery, orange. They put ice cubes in it.

    Fast food, amazing atmosphere, great service, but I could get separate checks. I know this isn't a big deal but it bugged me.

    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.

    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!

    Get the Mole Enchilada or the Sincronizadas con Chorizo with a Dos Equis amber Ale, you won't be disappointed. Also the outdoor patio in the back sets a great ambience....

    You can't eat here without starting with the guacamole. And if you've never had horchata, give it a try -- it's excellent here.

    The prices are fine, but the bartenders are so inept at handling large nighttime crowds
