One of my favorite Mexican food restaurant. Good food, great prices in a casual and friendly atmosphere. I always have tacos, and yummy guacamole and margaritas.

I first tried Blockheads several years ago and I loved it. Now every time I visit the city I have to stop there at least once...sometimes more! We are always greeted promptly and love sitting in the outside section. The atmosphere is wonderful and relaxed....More

Meh- the usual, sugary margaritas and basic american mexican. If you want a ground beef taco, this is your spot. I'd recommend Rosa Mexicana a few blocks up instead if you're looking for true mexican.

My friend and I met here for brunch and they have great drink prices. I think the mimosas are $2 with the brunch menu. The bathroom is in an odd location behind the bar and the place is small but cheap.

Another visit, this time with my family at the 50th st. Branch. Food is very good and on decent prices and the Buldog drink makes you happy.

Good food, similar to other location but more expensive than the downtown location (frozen margaritas $5 here) service was sort of slow but they have options for vegans. A great spot to get together with friends but I would 100% recommend the downtown location over...More

This review pertains only to the brunch, well, what was supposed to be brunch anyway. We showed up here at 2:45pm on a sunday afternoon, largely because it was a nice day and they had outdoor seating. Around 5 minutes later a server shows up...More
