    Customer service was okay. The waitress was very friendly, welcoming and nice. Unfortunately during dinner it seemed more of a party than actual dinner time. The food lacked seasoning and flavor on the very basic and common Mexican dish. The salsas had no hit of any spice and barely any flavor just tasted more like tomato. We had the red enchiladas, the salsa was cold, the cheese was not melted enough and the salsa tasted old. The only good thing there was the chips and salsa and that’s only because the salsa had a mild taste. The only reason it doesn’t get a one is because the customer service was good and the drinks were alright. Overall if I go back it would be only to have a couple drinks but would no longer have the food here. Hopes this helps and it’s more of a Tex Mex restaurant.

    Amazing and delicious food! The guacamole is the best one I’ve tasted on this island. The drinks were really good. The nachos and sauces were all really good. Anything you order, you will not be disappointed with.

    I had to write this for the love of food. The service, vibe, seating of this place was superb and if this review was solely based on that, it would be without question, 5 stars. Unfortunately, the food was severely lacking and this is my first and last time here. The horcatas were watered down and was translucent. The cup was 90% ice. I was super excited about the elote in a cup given I've never tried it despite being in the sunset park area of Brooklyn where it was widely popular. I don't like the mess of grazing corn with my teeth from a stick with mayo and cheese falling from it, I would give it a try if it were truly magical but I never did but this was different, innovative.... in a cup. How could I refuse? It was terrible, all the water from obviously a canned product collected in the bowl and it was not grilled in the least bit. There was no thought behind that process and was at the very best.... tasteless. The main course was one of the most disappointing of all things I've never had in food, ever in life. I ordered fried fish tacos and they were so bland....I had to actually add salt. My sister chimed in that she has never witnessed me add salt to food served in a restaurant. I am a big believer in simplistic approaches to food and I keep the salt to an absolute minimum. The breading was so ridiculously thick and inside was soggy with reminants of fish. It also tasted like sweet plantain which really threw me off. The best thing I've had here tonight is the tortilla chips with the sauces and should have ended there. For 3 years, I've walked by this place and wondered about the food but now I no longer have to wonder. That's the best thing that came out of this experience, plus the hospitality was unmatched, friendly and very neighborhood oriented. I enjoyed seeing happy people eating but the only time I would ever find myself here again is if I were obliterated out of my mind and even then, probably not. The steak tacos, although I didn't eat them I was told was in desperate need of seasoning.
