“good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

This is a great fun place to grab lunch or dinner. We liked it enough that we went twice for lunch. The burrito bowls are fresh and yummy. Try the cornbread--you won't be sorry!!

“Mexican on Block Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Block Island has mostly American and Seafood cuisines, but it's nice to also have Mexican, since different people have different tastes.

“Really outstanding lunch at Los Gatitos (at Yellow Kittens)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

FAVORITE MEXICAN PLACE OUTSIDE OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

You decide that you're going to visit Block Island, RI--good choice. You take a very reasonable 10:30AM ferry over (your'e on vacation after all), and fight the crowds a little bit. Once you get off the main street, the crowds dissipate a little bit, and you realize it's lunch time, and you're hungry. Fortunately, you have some choices--some pretty decent nautical-type fare across the street or "Los Gatitos" which seems to be an after thought added by the owners of Yellow Kittens when they realized they had a porch with pretty nice beach views. CHOOSE LOS GATITOS!

Everything was delicious--unfortunately, you can't eat it all and your group size will determine what you'll be able to order without waste.
-Any group size: No matter what, you need to order cornbread. They grill the wedges like grilled-cheese (with butter)--it's absolutely delicious.
-The nachos are huge and fantastic. I can count on one hand the number of chips that were "unexposed." Came with two types of sour cream--cilantro and Sriracha. Lots of cheese, good beans, and tasty yellow salsa. 2-3 people could comfortably eat all the nachos and get a side of cornbread.
- If you're by yourself, go for the cornbread and one of their burritos. The carnitas (pork) was fantastic. The yellow tomato salsa looks and tastes great.
Very pleased with this restaurant--anyone who says there isn't good Mexican food in New England has not visited Block Island.

“Great afternoon snack to have”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Went here and ordered the BI special - Mudslides and got nachos with pulled pork. They were huge but very good! Guacamole on them was excellent and have lots of tomatoes and peppers very tasty.

“Nice place for lunch outside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Stopped in once on our trip. Has limited seating so be prepared to wait for table. Food was good- the nachos were excellent. Had the lobster quesadillas and they were decent. Overall good place and they make a good drink.
