    fun night out.

    This place is great tasting, decently priced Mexican. Wait staff are always super friendly and quick, which is impressive considering the place is usually packed. I'd suggest this more for young people. It has a very young feel. GREAT novelty drinks. I'd say this place is for the 21-35 crowd who are looking for some good food and a fun night out.

    save your $ go else where

    I heard many mix reviews about this place my Co worker n I headed there to have a drink n some food we called a head to get a reservation we asked if it was packed they said no we get there in 15 min just to see the line all the way outside o.o we went to the front n told the host we made reservations n she said it's a 30 min wait which turned in to 2 1/2 hrs wait in the cool... finally when they called our names we were seated we ordered our 2 drinks only got 1 we order chicken quesadia which was 3 tiny old chicken n no cheese we mentioned it to the waitress n she finally brought our 2nd drink n a new quesadia but we were charged for the one they messed up & for 4 drinks when we only had 2 smh very poor service the food tastes like microwave expired food the service is super slow and the waitresses are rude.

    Not recommended

    The hostess gave away our table twice so our hour wait was nearly 2 hours - we watched people being seated before us that were most definitely not there before us. When we finally got a table, we ordered margaritas, which didn't come out for over 10 mins, we got them after we got our food. Within 5 mins the margaritas were syrupy and lukewarm - frozen margaritas are supposed to be frozen! The food was average. The service was poor. Aside from the margaritas taking forever, we had to ask for a glass of water twice and napkins 3 times. The clientele was obnoxious and loud, we couldn't even hear one another speak. We finally just got the check and got out of there - although after our experience that "meal" really should have been free. This was my 5th time dining at a Blockheads, typically I can deal with average food and below average service but never again!

    Burrito es muy caro

    This burrito was big and okay, but it way too expensive. It was definitely not worth 17 dollars (soda included). I have to say the atmosphere was like being in a BBQ wings NFL Sunday Budweiser meathead fest. This would be an okay place to get wasted, but if that's not your thing and you just want a nice date, then you should probably go elsewhere.

    Best burritos and margaritas!

    This is definitely my favorite Mexican restaurant on the UES. I havent been to any other blockheads in the area but I'm sure they're all the same. The downside is there is usually a wait because its a small restaurant. Inside it's not at all glamorous or what I would call "nice" but it fits the meal. The burritos are amazing. I havent tried anything else ( other than the quesadilla which i would reccomend) because they are so good. The margaritas are on point and pretty cheap. Service is not the best but didnt ruin our time. Love this place!

    I'm sad to be disappointed

    Wanted to get some work done this afternoon / evening and had a craving for faux Mexican food delivery. UGH, and I'm not a complainer. The delivery took over 45 minutes. The container of the main portion was open (aka not closed properly) and thus the burrito was COLD. Inside of the burrito there were perhaps 5 tiny bits of salty grilled chicken, and so mainly it was an empty wrap with guac. The side of beans was also COLD. I was thinking this would be a good guilty pleasure, but wow, was I disappointed. Boo :(

    Made my day!

    Had the best time at block heads on the upper eastside. A co-worker and I went for lunch and our food that was recommened by the server was great and came pretty quickly. I decide to try a bulldog after the manager discribed it as the best thing ever and our server also agreed. He was so right on the mark. What started off as a not so good day turn into a better day after lunch. Your manager made us feel so special by checking up on us and telling us hope the rest of your day gets better. I guess he did listen when we said we had had a bad start to our day. Anyways, you've got me hooked on you now. Thanks a bunch and I'll be back with more friends.
