    Try: Berkshire pork shoulder (leche condensada, huitlacoche puree with salsa roja)...Another item we are crazy about is the Platanos Machos Fritos(A mix of sweet plantains, salsa verde & queso fresco) Read more

    Great back yard, cool interior in the diner. Get el pepino Diablo , it's a tasty spicy cucumber margarita. The carnitas dish is solid and the tacos are decent

    Get the Huevos Chilango (two poached eggs, quinoa potato crisp, chorizo, tomatillo and avocado salsa). One of my favorite brunch dishes in the area.

    Get the fish tacos, they're delicious. A bit spicy but absolutely a must try. The house salad with steak is amazing! The food here is always tasty & fresh. This location has a very laid back vibe.

    There's a sliding scale of cuisine ranging from streetmunch like carnitas taquitos & grilled corn to a more sophisticated menu served in the back room, where one can expect to find a more daring menu. Read more

    Try favorites such as Queso Fundito, Carnitas Taquitos and Sopa de Tortilla while enjoying nightly DJs, but don’t forget the cocktails: Sip a Blood Orange Margarita or a Pepino Diablo.

    This guacamole is fantastic! Plus six bucks for a really delicious margarita in an old fashioned diner styled!

    Great place. The inside, the outside, the spicy margarita, the food, the Williamsburg-like overly-chilled staff (can be slow), all great for the vibe.

    Loved the fact that you have to get through the kitchen and get all underground to get to the action. We went for some drinks and had a blast!

    The Huevos Chilango is incredible. I almost wish I didn't fill up on chips, salsa, and beer beforehand!

    Get it all, meaning a huge platter of tacos. With lamb tacos in the mix. Chips and guacamole aren't worth it.

    Mexican food and a graveled outdoor dining area where you can usually find a spot, even on a busy night. Need we say more?

    The fish tacos and margarita are must have! When the weather is great, come and enjoy the outdoor seating.

    We drank all the margaritas and forgot to take a photo, here is the proof they are extremely good ;)

    Poscado ceviche, chorizo qeusadilla, squash blossom tacos are yummy. Prosecco with Mizcal is the perfect drink

    You have to be about 5'10'' to use the men's urinal. Try the sopa de tortilla, very good. Nice specials as well.

    My new favorite spot. Great food/drinks/ambiance. The corn on the cob is amazing. Brunch scene is going to be awesome. Well done La Esquina!

    Huevos Chilongos for brunch with Jerry Josephs favorite cocktail.. Akvinta with a splash of soda, and a splash of grapefruit. Great combo!!!

    Amazing place. Try their special Beer with hot sauce. Strangers and amazing.

    Trendy overprice Mexican. Good drinks, go for a Margarita. Better food options nearby but the retro diner experience is worth a visit for a drink.

    Beware, we had to wait to seat a party of nine despite a reservation and credit card deposit for price fixe. Food and service once seated were great.

    Must: try one of the Guarnitos, best thing on the menu. Bonus: sub a reposado mezcal for tequila in any spicy drink

    Decided to give it a second chance—it will be my last. Had the mushroom taco which was swimming in minty sauce, missing the hominy and gross!

    I enjoy the manhattan location & had a fairly decent opinion of the BK loc, until bad service & mediocre food ruined it. Oh, & a centipede ran out of my boyfriend's taco. So yeah, I'm gonna say pass.

    Stick with the guac & fish tacos, and everything will be okay. Cochinita pibil was tasty but SO greasy.

    Go eat at La Superior, Mole, or Mesa Coyoacan. This place is cutting corners on quality to make more profit. Boo.
