Description

Village Voice's Description

Formerly located in Williamsburg, this modest Mexican restaurant on the Lower East Side kept its clientele and then some with its affordably priced food and fun-loving atmosphere. The kitchen focuses on the cuisine of Puebla, although the menu has been Americanized enough to attract a diverse crowd of longtime locals and newly imported 20-somethings. Casual, filling fare like burritos, enchiladas and sizzling fajitas are served along with entrees like jumbo shrimp in garlic sauce and grilled carne asada. Diners looking for something a little more authentic might want to take a peek at the specialties of the house, which include mole dishes like mole poblano and adobo (pork in a smoky red mole sauce). Stop by when it's somebody's birthday or a holiday and you just might get a round of tequila shots brought to your table otherwise there are plenty of Mexican beers like Negra Modelo and Bohemia. The space itself is small and festive, a few tables with checked tablecloths and an explosion of colorful Mexico-themed decorations.—Keith Wagstaff

    Get the Chorizo or Veggie Nachos here. They are delicious. And if you're up for pain, try the Jalapeno Margarita, it hurts so good.

    Chicken burrito is the best! Not on the menu, but you can still order it.

  • Melody H. on 06/17/10

    The burritos here are the size of your head. Come with your appetite intact. Strongly recommend the black bean soup!
