    "cozy" with animated/inviting staff and great bar service. Nacho texture is perfectly balanced with poblano cheese sauce, torta ahogada is drowned in flavorful sauce (good thing.) soundtrack: mariachi

    Good classic margaritas. It’s easy to underestimate the importance of this. Well balanced and good to go.
  • Alex R.
    just look at those carne asada tacos!
  • Chris P.
    Got some great tacos. Place is miniscule. Put your name in and go wait at Nurse Bettie. Unless you're on a first date. You might wander in on burlesque night. Awkward.

    Amazing cocktails!

    The very definition of “tiny hidden gem”. Probably no bigger than your average Lower East Side apartment, serving fresh and tasty Mexican. The queso is out of control— order it.

    Ask for the spicy tomatillo salsa. Some of the staff doesn't know it exists but it does and it's great.

    For brunch, get the torta with an egg on it. It's better than sex.

    Cozy spot in LES. Get all the tacos (hanger steak, chicken, fish), guacamole with pomegranate, and ask the bartender to make you a custom drink.

    VERY good Mexican restaurant favored by many foodie Mexicans living in NYC. Tiny space so get here early or be prepared to wait.

    Sit at the bar and talk to the bartender about tequila. If you're lucky he'll do some blind tastes tests to help you find tequila that you enjoy sipping on.

    Queso fundido and spicy but light aguachile best. Generous guac portion for $10. Well made cocktails too but small so reserve ahead

    Literally everything is delicious. But since you're asking, have the blackberry Michelada, extra salt

    This place is all around great! Can't go wrong with any of the apps. My second time there I had the chicken mole dinner which was superb. Alex does an amazing job w/the variety of cocktails. 😍🇲🇽
