Recommended to go. So glad we did. Place is a little run down but that doesn't matter. The food speaks for itself. The chipotle spicy shrimp tacos are out of this world. Had the special peppers which are grilled then sprinkled with salt. Leaving in a few days so will head back here for one more meal.

I have been going to La Superior for 4 years now. I am from Los Angeles, so my standards for Mexican are extremely and unreasonably high. Since the day I moved to Brooklyn I was blown away by this place. The food is unreal. The owner is from Mexico City so he designed the menu based off typical street/cantina fare you would see in his hometown. Tacos are perfectly sized so you can order 4 and be really full but have a fun time with the variety. Carnitas is my personal favorite along with Rojas (creamy sliced poblano peppers) and hongos (mushrooms). Their soup and guacamole and queso fundido are favorite starters. You just can't go wrong here. It is a small place and they are cash only but it is such a gem, if you are in Williamsburg and are looking for amazing Mexican food, then THIS IS THE PLACE. Also, killer margaritas. Sometimes the dishes comes out at different times, you just have to roll with the punches. If you get your taco and your friend's hasn't come yet, don't wait for them. Just be cruel and stuff your face in front of them...trust me, they would do the same to you. Respect the fact that it is a small place with a small kitchen, so dishes come out when they are ready and sometimes not all at once. Get over it and enjoy an amazing Mexican feast like no other.

Popped in here on a whim and were very happy with the tacos we ate. They sell for $2.50 each and were worth every bite.

In order of Awesomeness:
Camoron al Chipotle - Smoky, Spicy, Happy
Pescadodo Zarendido - Clean Fish and Salsa
Cochinita Pibil - Slow cooked pork
Chicken Tinga - Not that Awesome

Margaritas were big and strong - not too sweet. Loved the Tamarind.

The interior was beat in, dirty and not well kept - They get away with it because a cheap boozy tacoshop in Mexico is all of those things. Come for the Tacos and Drinks - go somewhere else when you have to use the Toilet.

We ate at the bar, bartender was chatty, knew his stuff and was slammed making drinks the entire 30 minutes we spent there. This place was great cheap eats... not sure how the more elaborate stuff on the menu plays out.

During my 8 days in Brooklyn this was my favorite eatery, bar and all round hangout, out of a great selection of places in the Williamsburg neighborhood, The atmosphere is very Mexican appreciation, with an efficient and friendly crew, great true Mexican tacos (all Mexican kitchen), awesome tequila and Mexican beer! Heaven.

Get there early.
