    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!

    Slow service but worth the wait.

    Amazing chicken soup!

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

  • Barkima L.

    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.

    holy shit. took everyone's advice on the salsa sampler. proceed with caution and make sure you have plenty of water before digging in! having said that, it was delicious.

    Chicken soup hits the spot.

  • Whitney M.

    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!

    Whitney Meers · April 15, 2013
  • Grace C.

    Great food. Especially liked the octopus pulpo and the churros for dessert.

    Grace Cheung · April 14, 2013
  • Ms H.

    Very strong cocktails available in 2 sizes. Performance space out the back too!

    Ms Helen · March 4, 2013
  • Ajay D.

    Get the salsa sampler (not the salsa trio) . It's delicious!

    Ajay Divakaran · December 9, 2012
  • Karla M.

    Margarita is prob 99% tequila, 1% who knows!!! Try the salsa sampler, creamy one is the best and spiciest! 

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

    Jason Kapler · June 24, 2012
  • Alan M.

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

    Alan Mooiman · May 12, 2012

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

    I walked in at 1:30 pm on a Thursday and there were still chairs stacked in the windows and no one working inside. No lunch here.

    Julio's salsas are where it's at.

    nita panchal · November 26, 2011
  • Ben Z.

    Great salsa. Get the salsa sampler, but NOT the salsa trio (which is not actually salsa) (I know, right?)

    Ben Zhuk · October 23, 2011
