    Skip it. The food is generic and boring.

    The food here is OK but generally its kind of expensive. Probably wouldn't eat here again.

    If you're looking to avoid the long lines at Vanessa's across the way on a late night, this is a great alternative option. Great service and reasonable prices as well.

    Burritos, good. Charging that much for chips and just-ok guac, bad.

    Overpriced, undersized and IMO not very special Mexican. Go to Cerveceria just a couple blocks away, it rocks.

    The food is fresh but has no soul, no umph, no kick, no corazón! We had the jalapeño con queso to start, chicken quesadilla, and pork burrito....all meh. Drinks lack liquor concentration.

    DO get the Sopa de Lima- it really is that good. Jalapeños con queso, with that so, so soft tortilla? ¡Delicioso! Top it off with a puerco burrito, and you can call it a good night.

    Don't get the fried fish taco, it taste like soap...don't get the diabolita...after completing it, I still can't tell you what it tastes like.

    tortas overpriced. Carne asada was lost on roll & was $13. Far better tortas in Brooklyn @ 1/2 the price. Stick with a quesadilla. It's $10, but flavorful, right balance of cheese & meat.

    Carino is AMAZING! The Crispy Fish Tacos are THE best ever! The tacos are SO much better than La Superior's. From the margaritas, guacamole, tacos, rice and beans, to the Carmelized Plantains, Yum.
