This place is crowded during happy hour. There is a very busy bar scene, especially in the warm weather months when there is outdoor seating.
The food is good, too. I particularly like the shrimp taco (the main reason I keep going back).
The drinks are well-made. I wish they had more of a beer selection, though.
Overall, I recommend this place for: great shrimp tacos, great bar scene during happy hour, great place to meet a group of friends for a casual night out.
If you want a slight change in cuisine, the next door Belgian restaurant, Petite Abeille, is pretty good, too, along with Hane, the Japanese restaurant across the street.

Vamos has inventive Mexican cuisine and is a great addition to the restaurant starved Stuy Town area. Everything I've tried here has been very good. Cocktails are really good as well. Only criticism is the noise level can get so LOUD you can't have a conversation. So I prefer to either order in from here, or come for lunch when it's not so crowded and noisy. They really need to add some sort of accoustical feature to absorb the noise.

Great Margs, chips & salsa. Homemade Guac is delish too.
