The guac was super fresh and tasty. I had steak and eggs which was delicious. The drinks are good but strong.

Food was mediocre at best, very crowded, loud. To expensive for the quality of food. Don't understand the rating it received from yelp (four stars), very misleading.

The best margaritas in the City. If you like super spicy, ask for strawberry habanero. I crave them.

Great guacamole, delicious margaritas. The hibiscus and tamarind margarita. Food was really good and tasty. We had the enchilada mole, the lamb dish and the camarones borrachos. All delicious.

This place is small and cozy but it's absolutely worth going to try the Mexican specialities. The guacamole is unreal and the enchiladas are exceptional Good Mexican beers too

Great place to eat, definitively overpriced considering the portion size and quality, even by NYC standards though. Would be 5 stars if the prices were 25% lower. Everything on the menu is great.

Was here around dinner time. Short wait for a table. Must've been tail end of happy hour. The place was packed. It's not very big to begin with. Friendly staff. Close quarters seating-wise (typical NYC.) We both went with the two taco plate for $8....More

Good food and cool ambiance for a more than decent price in NYC? Hit Barrio chino. The menu is very vast both meat and fish are served (recommended the steak and guacamole chips). Next time I would like to try the recommended drinks. Negative note:...More

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
