    Get the taste out of my mouth! wait what taste?

    The only thing that tasted like anything was the mounds and mounds of vegan cheese they stuffed in my burrito. no flavor in the beans or rice, blaw. nothing special, no spices! totally over priced for what it is. and the chips! not even fresh?? thats the best part of mexican food, even tex-mex. least they could have done was have fresh chips. uurgggg oh and the salsa!!! don't get me started. just skip it!

    I love blockheads

    I love Mexican bulldogs! The super shredded beef burrito is so good as well. I don't know about you, but I love blockheads. Only complaint is that once I was in a group with 6 people and we waited like 2 hours and they didn't even offer compensation and even cut off drinking time. Boooo!

    Underrated.

    Delivery isn't super consistent but that's my only complaint. Everything I've had there's always super yummy and the staff is always great. BBQ chicken tacos... Bangin.

    Best tacos & margaritas

    I live blockheads..me & my friends go all the time & absolutely love the tacos! I haven't had taco bell ever since I tried b.heads... Prices are very reasonable, and they put a good amount of alcohol in the margaritas as well.. Excellent place to go!!

    Downhill fast

    This used to be my favorite cheap mexican joint. I'm not even sure they are using real cheese anymore. The food isn't as tasty as it used to be and the drinks not as big. Worst of all, it's always loud, no matter when you go. Perhaps soundproofing is needed? But it sounds like a crowded bar more than a restaurant. Many of the staff seems to be sitting around while people are waiting and the manager is clueless. We won't be back.

    Blockheads instead of cooking

    Sometimes you just don't feel like cooking and in searching for a place that would cater to my wife's omnivore cravings and my vegan desires we ended up at Blockheads on 2nd Ave between 81/82 Sts. I was captivated by the 100% vegan cheese, tofu sour cream and grilled tofu substitutions blatantly advertised on the menu. How dare you tease me, allow me to put my restaurant inquisition aside for a meal. Dare accepted, you're on! We had about a 20 minute wait according to the hostess and that was at 7PM on Thursday night. Man the place was packed...and after wandering around looking for a bar, (hey, for her ... I was still on call), we gave up and decided better to not miss our names being called and going back to the bottom of the list. So, about 20 minutes later we got our table. Now Blockheads isn't your quiet Mexican place with moments of Mariachi Band, it's your typical NYC loud, boisterous, don't come here for intimate conversation kind of place. I know, the kind of place I loved when I was in my 20s. But really, we sat next to each other, (awww, I know), and conversation was easy. Starting out with a Quesadilla I changed it to Whole Wheat and ordered the soy (vegan) cheese with roasted corn salsa and sauteed spinach. It was hugh!! It literally was spilling over the sides of the plate and you can see the tofu sour cream in the little ramekin. The sour cream didn't really taste like sour cream but had more of a hummouy consistency with a slight lemon tinge. It served its purpose nicely though and cooled down some of the heat from the hot sauces I tend to pour over everything every other bite or so. Sometimes. The first thing was how nice and crispy the tortilla was, not soggy at all, and my first sensation, to be repeated later, was how creamy the cheese was. It was followed by the rich flavor combination of the corn and spinach. First dish of the night, a big hit. Next, for some reason in my mind, Mexican turned into Caribbean and we both ordered the Jerk Burrito. She, the real thing, and I the tofu after being assured the jerk flavor would come through very well even though the tofu wasn't marinated in it. Our waitress was right. Even though it wasn't as hugh as the Quesadilla it was still a big burrito. Here you can see the 3 sauces: extra jerk sauce, tofu sour cream, and s ...

    yuck

    Yes, there are cheap margaritas here. That was one of the reasons why I was coming here as often as I had been. The food was always very so so and so was the service. But it was okay. Average. But the last time I went, I ordered the nachos, and it was not good. How can they mess up on the nachos? It's a Mexican spot for heaven's sake! I can even make better nachos than that. The chips were stale, the cheese was cold, and the beans were hard. It was so gross. I was so very disappointed. After that, I haven't been back since.
