    The entire menu is fabulous. While there is limited seating, it's well worth the wait and comes at a small price. The red sangria is nicely made and served well with almost any order.

    Decorated in deep reds, greens and oranges, this restaurant's interior replicates the owner's childhood living room in Mexico City. So does the menu, which includes an assortment of tortas at lunch. Read more

    Chavella's is the best Mexican option in prospect heights/park slope. Their tacos are tasty and perfect portion. The brunch huevos con rajas is scrumptious!

    Papas y chorizo quesadilla is spicy, moist, and crispy on the outside. Order sour cream to cool it down.

    I concur - this place is great. The huevos ahogados is delish and a great hangover cure...but they are stingy w the sweet bread!
