Village Voice's Description

Food beacon in a neighborhood with few good places to eat, Castro's is probably the oldest real Mexican restaurant in Brooklyn, unless you count the tequila bars of Bensonhurst and Bay Ridge. The menu combines Tex-Mex and Pueblan specialties, and it's one of the few places in town you can get the fiery stew known as tinga.

Tips from foursquare

  • Mister Anderson on 05/19/10

    Castros is one the best authentic Mexican restaurants in BK. Hands down!

  • Chris C. on 01/28/12

    Good place for take-out, or an affordable hour or two to hang out with friends. I was a big fan of their burritos and quesadillas here but everything is pretty good. Outdoor dining's great in Spring.

  • Ryan P. on 09/15/12

    The only place where I get hard shell tacos. They're incredible here.

  • Liam R. on 01/01/12

    Everyone says their burritos are the size of babies; even though I disagree on the visual size, order a burrito and you'll be carrying a glorious food baby the size of a toddler.
