    The food was delicious but the service was not so good. Not sure if the waitress was new but there were a number of issues including long waits, misinformation about prices, and charging a card wrong.

    Really good service and food! I don't know why rating is normal. Should be higher. I ordered: elote, chicken soup (yum!) and baja fish tacos. Will be back! Keep it going 😊

    The fish and shrimp tacos are great. The drinks pack a punch and set the mood for the awesome atmosphere that plays latin music. We enjoyed the margarita pitcher.

    Mexican pasta is one of the best things I've ever eaten. PS - black light surprises await you in the bathroom (in a good way).

    Not real Mexican BUT super fresh ingredients that leave you appreciating the nuances prepared here. Chicken mole was fab. Decor one of the best and unique in brooklyn.

    The girl that works the bar brought me the wrong check twice and start arguing with no point and with bad manners about it. I used to like this place and now there's no way I'm coming back.

    The salsa sampler is so spicy and incredible and the owner/ chef Julio is an artist! The chocolate mole enchiladas are to die for. This place is wonderful.

    great drinks and food at super reasonable prices. Apparently the same owners as la superior, but not only tacos here, much more traditional tapas and entrees. Super unique salsa which is amazing!

    $6 normal sized flavored margaritas all the time and open until 2am Fri and Sat! I love the pineapple! Ask for hibiscus salt rim!

    The salsa was great. The service sucks tremendously. He could barely speak English and couldn't explain the dish at all. The margarita was weak! I believe the bartender was the chef!! Won't be back.

    Bad service, plus we saw someone literally passed out at his table, which made us want to leave the moment we walked in.. But the staff made up for it with complimentary tequila shots!

    The prawns come wrapped in raw bacon. Still figuring out if that's intentional. Rethink this menu item if ordering it.

    Cash only. Food was too expensive for the lack of flavor complexity. Salsa too spicy to taste the flavors.

    Salsa sampler: you get a random 4 from a selection of 23! Chef comes table side to explain them. Do it.
