“Good Mexican food”
Reviewed June 5, 2012 via mobile

Visited mid afternoon on a Friday in early June

Very friendly and fast service. Yet not rushed

I had a pork sandwich which was very good. My wife had chicken dish with a great sauce

Reasonably priced: a beer and a drink, guacamole appetizer (great guacamole), and two entrees around $50 with tip

“Fabulous Mexican”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

A great place to eat if you love Mexican food - very genuine, very busy and great food. The Plata Don was fabulous but bring a big appetite as it is huge

“Fantastic Service”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

Unbelievably fast service and friendly staff even when the place was packed. Went back a second time and not just for another mid-afternoon margarita. The food was delicious and plentiful.

“Delicious Mexican in Brooklyn!”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

My favorite mexican in Brooklyn. Super cheap, fresh ingredients, and killer tequila bar. Go for a few tacos, quesadillas, and a cocktail for under $20. They also deliver which is great on a lazy night! Brunch and dinner times are tough to get seats so go early and sip on a few mexican beers or tequila/mezcal cocktails while you wait!

“What a find in the middle of Crown Heights”
Reviewed December 17, 2011

I'd seen this place while driving one Sunday with a bit of crowd outside and promised I would stop in to see if it was worth the wait. Wow. for a non-planned lunch the portion size was great, the food excellent and the service was on point. Definitely a must do for Brunch, Lunch or just because! And the scenery is also very old Mexico, the only thing missing was the trolleys offering shots of tequila (maybe they do that at dinner)???
