    The Pollo Oaxaca was amazing and I told you the Mofongo Criollo was mouth watering and for your appetizer the Pinion Is Exceptionally good.

    In between rides, patrons indulge in delightfully strong margaritas, minty frozen mojitos and signature pineapple tequila shots, plus snacks like cactus salad and plantains with garlic shrimp.

    Let me paint you a picture. They THOROUGHLY pat you down for weapons. Inside, it's smoky and loud, with banging remixed salsa music. Bottle service is Johnnie Walker Black Label. You should leave.

    So far, this place is great. Great margarita special. Good to very good flautas. They just opened... Christ! I don't know about the "Guido" comment. Sounds like hipster noise.

    Nice place to go for an undercover date night, with your girls or just to chill. They have a mechanical bull so ladies lets go! Lol

    Sign your life away, take a shot of tequila and take a ride on the mechanical bull. It’s really something you should do at least once in your life.

    Flautas to die for. Tacos in my to 5 for NYC. Everyone should come and come often so they can lower the cost.

    First consider the cover charge of $10 girls & $20 guys, then add the mandatory $4 coat check

    They play horrible loud dance music during dinner and they inexplicably blow fire horns when people ride the mechanical bull. Does not make for good dinner atmosphere. Bummer because the food is good

    Love this place. Try the strawberry mojito. But the aggressive busser needs to stop trying to remove plates w/food. Ride the bull!!!!

    Looks appetizing but tastes like rubber. After eating this dish, I suffered from my first EVER allergic reaction to any food. ER Doc said it was a bad batch /uncleaned shrimp. Avoid it!

    Really spacious, friendly staff, far enough off Bedford to be enjoyable and... a mechanical bull to boot.

    avoid this place at night 20 dollar cover and It's small tacky no real dance floor just to have sub par drinks and security flashing lights in you eye. Oh and this is a very ghetto crowd.
  • Willie L.
    Willie LizMay 18, 2014
    Security is rude people are mostly ghetto plus it's overcrowded and it's a cockfest. But if your drunk and willing to pay a stupid 20 dollar cover plus 5 for the bull then fine. But I'll say avoid.

    Constant strobe lights even on a Sunday night. Salsa was a paste, chips were cold and stale. Do not go here, there are 100 other amazing restaurants within blocks
