    If you stop by here for happy hour, which runs from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, you can score $7 flautas, empanadas, quesadillas and tacos. And obviously, there are some sweet booze deals. Read more

    Delicious tableside guacamole! Frozen pomegranate margaritas are a great way to kick off the night. Tacos are very good but come here for plated Mex. Mole, braised dishes and Ceviches +chef specials.

    was skeptical at first but the guacamole is 100% worth it. sizeable portions that justify the price. fajitas, enchiladas, shrimp tacos, and steak are all winner

    We stop by here often for a quick bite between shows during Fashion Week. Have the handmade Guacamole (they mix it at your table to your preference!) and the Pomegranate Margaritas!

    I never finish my meals and I finished their fish tacos and could have kept going! they were that delicious. By far the best I've ever had in the city. The atmosphere is awesome. Highly recommend

    Sure, the guacamole is delicious and a must have. Yet this chain restaurant shows its cookie-cutter kitchen with boring enchiladas. Do yourself a favor: stick to the guac and a drink, then leave.

    Guacamole is amazing but pricey. Salmon Poblano is perfectly crisp on the outside and perfectly delicate on the inside, seasoned beautifully!

    Elegant evocations of regional Mexican fare, from the legendary mole known as manchamanteles ("tablecloth stainer"), to mixiotes, lamb shanks braised with dried chiles and tequila in parchment.

    Excellent guacamole smashed table-side, though otherwise overpriced for what it is. To grab a post-work margarita, you're better heading a few blocks down 9th to the newer, more fun Tacuba instead.

    When including tortillas in your meal, choose corn or whole-wheat over flour tortillas, as they have less calories and fat and are higher in fiber.
