    Guac is great (love the tortilla chips too)! Mole is delicious. I tried the habanero grapefruit marg, which was good but very hot! The plain grapefruit marg hit the spot.

    Get the enchiladas verde and skip the tacos.

    Amazing margaritas, the lime mixer is made in house. Makes all the difference!

    Actually only had margaritas here and they are freaking amazing. The habanero grapefruit one is my favorite but it's so spicy. Go for the jalapeño lime if you want something a little less intense.

    Get the grapefruit habanero margarita. It's very very spicy but delicious. Service was a bit slow, but not terrible.

    The cactus tacos are always welcome. You can bring in your own coffee. Beware the sautéed spinach comes with mushrooms.

    Best Mexican on the LES.Mole is super good. Tacos. Margaritas. Guacamole. All are top notch. The space can be a little cramped but worth it. Food is tip top. Never had a thing I wouldn't order again.

    Margaritas are incredible but beware of the jalapeño and habanero margs if you're sensitive to spice. They are delicious but VERY spicy. Taco plate is a little small but very good.

    Do not duscuss with me about the tacos, just go and order the sopesitos with a mix of the toppings, I promise you won't regret it. I'm seriously curious about the large selection of tequila.

    The spiciest, most delicious margarita award goes to this place. Don't sleep on their chips and salsa or full menu either. But the margs keep me coming back.

    Enchiladas verdes were pretty damn good, and I had a hefty elderflower margarita to go with my meal. Definitely VERY loud and crowded, but if you can ignore that it's worth the visit.
