Was looking for some mexican food and cheap margs with a friend. Everything was quite disappointing. To start, the tortilla chips are stale. The 5$ frozen margs are attractive, but note they add 1$ for each flavor you add. They are pure sugar syrup, and no tequila. The food was very plain - the only good thing was the guacamole.... More

I went here to buy takeout and the Burritos were really good if you are vegetarian I would recommend the butter nut squash one. The staff were friendly as well. Just be warned it is a bit pricey

Good for groups or celebrations. Not your best food or atmosphere. Gets bust and very noisy can be a bit sloppy

My friends and I had lunch at Blockheads the other day. I was surprised to discover it was a chain. We were seated promptly, and our server was great. Chips and salsa were put on the table right away, and we enjoyed snacking while waiting for our main meals. I had a grilled chicken burrito with pinto beans and brown... More

We stumbled across this little Mexican by accident on 26th of December while wandering around looking for somewhere to eat. We were a table of 6 and a couple sitting at a 4 seater table very kindly said they'd move to let us have a table rather than wait - that was a good first impression. The bar was atmospeheric,...

What says summer more than sitting outside Blockheads with a bowl of chips and salsa and a frozen margarita? This restaurant is a bustle go-to for everyone in midtown. The food is good and affordable, and the drinks just keep coming. Yes, there's usually a wait, but that goes to show how great it is.

Nice outdoor seating space, good atmosphere. Waiter was not attentive, and seemed quite overwhelmed with the number of customers. We arrived at 9pmish and had to wait 40minutes to be seated. There was 7 of us. The mojitos are great, but very strong- good if you like to drink, not so good if you are a light wait like me.... More

The food here was excellent. I had a beef burrito and my partner had chicken. Both were beautiful. We also both had a frozen margarita's to accompany the food which were very refreshing. This was one of the cheapest meals we had in NYC but also one of the nicest.

Visited for an after work dinner and a couple of drinks. The service was excellent, the food was served fast and was a very healthy portion and the bulldog cocktails were great. The price was reasonable too, we will definitely return.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
