Service
 
Taking a cue from the shabby-chic SoHo original, this Williamsburg Mexican matches “memorable” tacos and more with “on-point” drinks in a refurbished diner car with a clutch back room; a sprawling patio for “hanging out with friends” rounds out a scene that’s “truly Billyburg.”

Good place for an outdoor bite with friends. They have decent margaritas and lots of taco options. The service is just okay I think they get very busy and loose track of things. I love the space and they have an outdoor pool table too.

By far the worst place I have had the displeasure of having a meal. The food was at best just ok but one can overlook that knowing that its a relatively inexpensive place to eat. What one cannot overlook is the lack of attention from the staff to service and cleanliness. We sat in the garden area which was filthy and probably had not been cleaned since last year. The waiter brought our food and we had no cutlery or napkins at our table. We were trying to flag down a waiter to no avail so my son had to go in the restaurant to get the utensils and napkins. The manager is unprofessional and rude. Will never go to this place again!!!

Nice outside seating, dog friendly and fantastic food. Slow service but if you are chilling who cares.
