My coworkers and I went there for lunch and the food is AMAZING! Whats even better is the $2 Margaritas they have for lunch. These drinks are beyond amazing and far from being watered down. I had the "build your own burrito" and it was picture perfect. Hit the spot for Friday lunch and a great start to the weekend!

I went there and had a great meal. Small place but good fare. Had the chicken burrito with a heap of fillings and it was massive. Would easily go there again.

Love blockheads when I'm in the mood for Mexican fare and drinks! Had the jerk chicken burrito for the first time and I loved it and wanted more! Good drinks and good food, what else is there to ask for? The atmosphere is lively and usually crowded so don't go if you want peace or quiet! There are many locations... More

Living in a non-Mexican area, I look for good Mexican food wherever I travel. Not always easy to find! Blockhead's offers a wide range of the typical mexican fare (no enchiladas or chile rellenos unfortunately) served in a casual style. The food is plentiful and very tasty with interesting choices - brown rice is even available as a substitute. As... More

We were looking for a place where locals eat and we found it! The fare was surprisingly good! I would hit this place up again if I was in the area.

I've done take out here twice so far (definitely gotta eat THERE sometime as the margaritas are supposed to be a huge draw) and been pretty satisfied for the most part. A burrito is around $11 but they are freaking huge - didn't have a ton of flavor but it was just high quality food all around. Without a doubt... More

Had a lovely meal here and really enjoyed the frozen margarita's, great value, good atmosphere not very buggy friendly but found that to be the case generally in NYC.

I ordered take out. The delivery was fast but the food itself was poor. Not very fresh or tasty. Below average Mexican food. Bland, dull, not tasty. Perhaps eating at the restaurant is better than their take out.
