    The cabeza taco melts in your mouth. Wash it down with a frozen margarita, strong and cheap.

    I came to Sunset Park just for Mexican and picked this place because of the good tips. Maybe I came here on a bad day, but the tacos/margarita were blah. Many other places in the neighborhood to try!

    Make sure to tell them exactly what you want because apparently the most obvious directions aren't enough. Smdh. Ex. A chicken quesadilla means tortilla and chicken... no queso. Get it together.

    One of only a handful of decent Mexican food places in the city, nearly all of which are also in the Sunset Park neighborhood.

    Step into this large, spotless space and you’re in Mexico. But it’s the food that makes it so popular. Oven- roasted goat, at $13, is the most expensive entree.

    Delicious, cheap, authentic Mexican. Lengua tacos are the best. Guac is fresh and comes w thick cut fried tortillas. Get the horchata and try the Mexican chocolate on a cold day.

    Delicious and cheap taco place in Brooklyn! Get your tacos to go and eat them at Sunset Park. Sit at the top of the park so you can enjoy great views of Lower Manhattan.
