    The service SUCKS. They had us wait for one more person to join our party even though we were willing and wanted to order for one person.

    Horrible seating service. We stood in heels for 20 min while FLO insisted we waited until one more person we were waiting for joined our party even though we were ready to order for 4 people.

    I hate to say it, but I don't quite get the hype. Don't get me wrong, it was delicious... but I don't think it's one of the absolute best. Great service and margaritas, though!

    The torta ahogada here touts itself as the first in New York, stuffing a sourdough with carnitas, and beans and topped with mild and hot sauces.

    Can't say it's the best tacos I've ever had (Places in LA and Austin come to mind), but a good option when you're feeling a casual Mexican bite. Their guava marg and tamarind margs are good!

    The tacos are modest, but they pack enough of a punch that two will suffice if supplemented with, say, a quesadilla. Start by ordering a basket of piping hot tortilla chips with salsa on the side. Read more

    Best Mexican in the hood. It's a small place, so expect to wait a bit for a table, but grab a Guava Margarita at the bar while you wait and dont miss the Tounge Taco! Seriously don't be scared.

    Best Mexican I've had in NYC. Cheap too. But their bathrooms look like the kinda place you'd wake up without your kidney after a fucked up night in Mexico.

    Delicious tacos and enchiladas. Paloma is a good drink to start the night with its high level of tequila. Highly recommended for those who want to eat something different.

    Favorite Mexican food spot ever. They make the best margaritas in all of Williamsburg. If it’s not for the margs, it’s for their $5 chips and guac. Delish! http://bit.ly/MJk450 -Running in Wedges
