“Straight-up delicioso” describes both the food and the scene at this ever- “trendy” SoHo Mexican comprising a “dive” -like taqueria, casual indoor/outdoor cafe and “ultracool” , hard-to-access underground grotto; the Williamsburg spin-off set in a “futuristic retro diner” comes equipped with a moody back room and “huge outdoor patio.”

I had heard great things about this place from friends who live in Brooklyn, but it was honestly a bit of a let down. For starters, the waitress took at least 10 minutes to greet us at our table and offer us some water or something to drink. We ordered beers to start and they took another 10 minutes, which is way too long for a drink in a glass. The food took about 15 minutes to come, but thankfully it was hot and quite good. I got the Chimichangas dish with rice on the side and my fiancee got Fajitas (steak). We were both happy with the food itself, I just wish the service had been better. The girl was nice, but just very slow which leads me to believe they have a staffing problem and likely need more waiters and waitresses.

Great place good atmosphere. Really good authentic Mexican dishes and drinks. Love the decoration. One of those places that one really needs to try.

I went there for a drink on a weekday night. It was easy to get in but I wouldn't expect the same luck on a weekend. The speakeasy has a hip/trendy vibe with a live deejay spinning music. Drinks were on point. Curious about trying the dinner menu on another day!
