I love this blockheads so much, I have it delivered more than I am able to go there. The last time I was there was during the Jalepeno recall. I get allergic reactions to anything pickled. Strange, I know. but they were using canned pickled jalepenos, and they left it off for me. The alcoholic drinks are potent and during happy hour, cheap. I love the Zippy lunches bc you get a soda, chips and salsa, and a burrito for less than $10. I love this place, and so do a lot of locals bc it stayed open even after the collapse of the neighboring building last year.

FOOD Nachos Supreme are awesome an explosion of flavors. I am guilty to say that I ate the entire platter, including the extra chips they give you. SERVICE The staff at the midtown location is a bit odd, awkward even. I left a tip for one of the servers after buying a drink, and she snatched it like a hawk so that nobody else could lay claim. When ordering for takeout, I was put on hold indefinitely, which was odd, because when I arrived at the restaurant (where I ordered directly), there were only a few patrons there. JUDGMENT I ordered nachos with grilled tofu (and cheese), just for the heck of it, not for any special dietary reasons. They give me tofu-based sour cream instead of real sour cream. Makes sense, right? Not really, if you consider that my nachos were oozing with real cheese...

The food is medicore at best- every time I order from there I am missing part of my meal. I ordered from them for the last time tonight and will definately try different mexican restaurants in the future. Also, there customer service has a lot to be desired. Trust me New Yorkers you can do better!!!

We've been going to this Blockheads for almost ten years. Food and service were always consistantly excelent. In March of 2008 they renovated and seem to have changed the entire staff. Since that time they have are cramming too many people into the place and the service is not good. The staff may THINK they are just being delightful but they are for the most part diffident and immature. We will continue to go since we really like the food but hope the owner reads this and speaks to the staff.

I used to order delivery from Blockheads for years, it was my "go-to" Mexican place in the area. However, something has changed, the last five times I ordered, the people on the phoe are rude, delivery times take forever and the food is a mess by the time it arrives. Something foul is afoot,, avoid this place. What happened?

We've eaten at Blockheads for years, but the last two times, which will be the last two times ever, that we ordered for delivery, they forgot numerous items such as sour cream, guac, etc...hopefully they can get their delivery act together and perhaps we'll try again in another year or two...then again, the food, while still decent, has gone downhill recently in both quality and quantity...

Food choices are good, but did they change owners? My food took to long to be delivered, they forgot the cheese, sour cream, and guacamole. Also forgot to deliver a coke.
