A bit noisy but the food is delicious. Tamales made with tender, shredded beef (cheeks!), strong margaritas, and Ping Pong rooms in the back!

Mmmmmm. Really good food. Cool spot. Nice and laid back.
We tried the roasted cauliflower (awesome) carne asada (the best of all we tried) Moroccan lamb ( a bit in the gamey side) and the chorizo hand pies (buttery goodness).
This is a place to grab a quick bite and drink or spend a good while with a bunch of friends. Would definitely come again. :o)

We went here for dinner and a drink. The margaritas were great. We ordered a couple of things to share, including tacos al pastor. The food was great in taste, but small in portion size, especially for the price. The bar decor makes it worth visiting, and you can take the elevator up to the roof top bar, which is a great spot for a second drink- great views of the city. .... overall- great spot for drinks, not worth it for dinner- there are better, cheaper mexican restaurants in nyc.

I love a restaurant that keeps a small, well defined menu. Here it is. Just a few things done very nicely. Had lunch with a business colleague. She ordered fish tacos; I ordered pork, and we traded one. All the food was wonderful. Our server was efficient, personable, and helpful. The atmosphere is lively. When we returned at 9 p.m., the bar was in full swing.
