Brooklyn's favorite authentic Mexican.
I usually say, see for yourself. Screw that! you need to go, be impregnated by the most delicious food baby you can dream of, and let the night (or afternoon) slip away with a pitcher of margarita
Come for the brunch. Stay for the sangria. Keep coming back because it's one of the best brunches in all of Brooklyn.
Happy hour is a good deal. Most tacos are $2 and drinks are $3 to $5. Cactus tacos are awesome. Be sure to get the salsa trio. The tomatillo salsa is great.
Chavela's does Mexican classics well and inexpensively—not reinventing the wheel, perhaps not worth traveling for, but reliable and tasty while you're there.
Best. Food. Ever. And the drinks are great too! It's almost always packed so make sure you aren't starving when you get there.
Even better than the old location! Guac, Mexican corn on the cob, and chorizo-potato tacos are all AMAZING.
The black bean soup is amazingly good. Quesadillas come with a yummy smoky sauce. And the Isla Bonita is a great cocktail.
Campechana - it's a Sangria + 1/2 Margarita...nice!
Best brunch on Franklin!
Food is always great but boy do they have a killer brunch. Try the Chavela's Omelette (avocado, bacon and cheese) w/ a side of chorizo hash. Bonus: they put cinnamon in their coffee so it's mad cozy.
What you want: Pitcher of 1/2 Sangria & 1/2 Margarita and order of the fresh made guacamole & chips. If you do tacos, plan on getting some crazy hot habenero sauce on the side.
Chevelas you tasty tasty bitch, why are you so good
The Don Pepino (cucumber, cilantro, tajin) is pretty great. Like a spicy cucumber green apple jolly rancher--I know that sounds fucking weird, but it works).
Huevos verdes lunch special!
A place of magical margaritas and speedy service.
This place has great drinks (mescal) and the coolest bano.
Looking for Tacos? This tiny restauran is great, and they prepare an excellent sangria! Be prepared to stay in line, though....
Everything about this place is absolutely awesome.
Please open already!!
If you're a meat-lover get the bistec off the brunch menu. Forget about the egg dishes!
Try the Don Pepin cocktail...very refreshing!!
Tamarind mezcal drinks w/ chili-salt are the new margaritas.
Oh, the michaelada tastes like rock, roll and bad decision-making skills. So delicious.
When it's crowded, leave your name and go grab a drink somewhere else. They really pack it in!
As mayor, I know all the tips: come at lunch, sit at the bar, eat mole. The special is only $6. Come back early on for happy hour and again, sit at the bar for $2 chicken mole tacos and $3 beer.
This is one of my favorite restaurants ever! Everything on the menu is amazing. Get the taquitos and black bean soup
Brunch is a great deal, $11 a plate plus $3 drink specials. The jalapeno hollandaise on my eggs was worth the meal alone! Good guac too.
Must add, the food was done very well (excellent guacamole, good tacos, many vegetarian friendly options and friends LOVED the Plato Don), but, unfortunately, worst margarita I've ever had.
Get the Camenchana for a drink! Sangria and Margarita mixed together! Delicious!
Great vegan options! I highly recommend the verduras tacos!
The sangrias are strong! Yummy!
Happy hour 4-7
Great food and ambiance, but the service is aloof at best. More interested in hanging out with each other than taking care of the guest...
Happy Hour: $2 tacos $3 beers $4 sangrias $5 margaritas. Need I say more...?
Pescado Californian style tacos are awesome. Great service and ambiance too.
The food was great
I tend to stick to beer, but whenever I come here I order the white sangria.
When they say 45 min wait they actually mean an hour and a half.
The happy hour is now Mon-Thu. No more Fri. :(
Get the white sangria- it's super refreshing!
Happy hour at Chavela's is amazing $2 tacos/$3 beers! And the Guac is perfection.
Get here early for brunch: place fills up quickly, even though it seats about 50.
Plato Don for the win!
Avocado tostada. Might sound light, plain, bland even--it's not. Filling and boasting a very generous serving of avocado, it's engineered for maximum deliciousness. Do it.
