Went for lunch and they had very generous portions. But not too much that we needed a doggie bag. Food was fresh and they had a great variety to choose from. All the chips and salsa you can eat. Yummy!!

The blockheads is a local Mexican style restaurant/pub with high quality food and slush puppies for frozen Margarita. Not many tourists find there way here, but you need to be here at 5 PM to avoid waiting in queue. I'd eat and drink here again - it is super!

I was staying just a couple of blocks away and, tbh, try to avoid the crush of restaurants and people in this strip of Murray Hill but there was an empty table outside so I could people watch. I had the $9 lunch special. Food was great, salad fresh, crunch and nicely displayed and service was decent. All in all,... More

I used to live in the neighborhood for 7 years but moved away last year. I returned with friends to Blockheads for a nostalgic brunch. Unfortunately, the brunch menu is really a lunch menu at this point. I had the two taco plate, which was as good as I remembered it was. My shaken margarita was above average.

Literally the best toasted tofu I've ever had! Great vegetarian option! I had a tofu quesadilla huge portion and very filling! But the greatest thing about this place is $4 margaritas and an extra $1 for a flavour in it! Two of those bad boys will have you singing your way back to the hotel!! I will be telling every... More

food is alright, but its definitely worth eating so you can have THOSE DRINKS! wow... the type of drinks where you question if the bartender put any alcohol in because they taste so good. In fact, you are certain they didnt put alcohol in the drinks so you order a second one to try to get any type of buzz.... More

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
