    When you're with at least four people, get the platter which they serve on a huge wooden board to share that includes Asada Oaxaquena, Carne Enchilada, Green Chorizo, Cecina, and Grilled Queso Blanco.

    Delicious margs and only $8 for happy hour. Sat next to the staff reading through customer reviews to try and improve their service. Awesome ambiance. Would be a great place to take out of towners.

    Start w/the playful cheese chicharonnes and a lighter (but satisfying) order of chorizo verde eggs. Oh, and since its brunch and the sun is shining, get you and your amigos a michelada (or two).

    Chilaquiles at brunch are way bigger then you'll ever need, but so good you'll finish em anyways (or least take them home). And the Chipotle Maria has a real kick that wakes you right up!

    The fish tacos and original margaritas were awesome. Rosie was our waitress (which we found out the place is named after) and she was honestly the best server I've ever had. Love this place !

    Great brunch. Good spot for groups. Start with the Bourbon Spiked Mocha, guacamole + chips and the queso with sausage. For the main course I highly recommend the Chilaquiles with Cecina Beef.

    Not a hole in the wall! Massive space for LES; great for groups. The stools at the bar are innovative; they slope slightly downwards and are sooooooo comfortable to sit in.

    Great brunch - especially when the huge windows are open (which they close sporadically for no apparent reason). Nice vibe, and steak & eggs that are 👌🏼 great addition to 2nd Ave!

    Fish tacos were yummy and so was the diablo drink! Flan and peanut butter and chocolate chili ice cream for dessert was a perfect finish.

    Claim a spot on the patio and sip a Mango margarita with Serrano-infused tequila, mango, lime, OJ and cilantro with a chipotle salt rim. Hey, that’s like, three servings of fruit. Read more

    At dinner, "girls’-night posses descend for watermelon margaritas and guacamole. The waitresses wear short, calico-print dresses, and have the spirit of the unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt." Read more

    The tacos were out of this world. I went with the chicken and the pork. Get two orders if you're hungry cause 2 tacos just isn't enough! The guacamole was fantastic as well!

    Super fresh and simple! Love the Rosie's margarita! For food, I loved the beef tartar, pork tacos, and ribs. If you're into spicy try the scallop ceviche.

    Festive atmosphere and excellent drinks. Try the chia yogurt on the brunch menu if you're in the mood for something different and light. It's magic.

    Fish tacos were great. Skip the cactus salad, just so so. Beware watermelon margarita has a kick. This spot is always crowded but one of my fav Mexican locales.

    Spicy MARGS, creamy guacamole, and cool open format makes the whole restaurant feel outdoors. The cookshop family does it again!

    Comes alive at 8pm so don't show up late or you miss the beautiful art of tortilla making and the bustle of an authentic restaurant. Definitely try the queso!

    Draws a young professional crowd for a fun scene. Fish tacos are delish, but overpriced considering you get 2 bites out of it. I prefer tacombi tbh.
