    Horrendous delivery

    I'm a huge fan of Blockheads normally (I left a good review for the midtown east location) but the one on the UES was beyond dissapointing. We ordered dinner from here last week and waited an hour and a half for our food. After three calls to the restaurant inquiring about our food, I realized they had 1st) written down my address wrong-- ie 2nd avenue instead of 3rd avenue and 2nd) the delivery guy had gotten completely lost trying to get from 2nd to 3rd avenue. I didn't even know that was possible but it happened and our food was cold by the time it was delivered. Such a dissapointing experience since the midtown location is so great. DO NOT order delivery from here unless you have an hour and a half to spare and you like your food cold (I don't prefer either).

    Awful Stuff

    This is not restaurant quality food. And the price is just crazy. $12 for a burrito? C'mon, get real. In this bad recession there are real dinners offered at real restaurants for less than this price. You can make burritos like these, but which taste better and have fresher ingredients, for $2.50 in your own kitchen. Skip these dumps and find yourself a better and cheaper burrito, It's easy.

    Bad Experience!

    Save your money! Don't eat at the 2nd Avenue/50th Street locaation. The service is terrible and the manager is rude. They don't care about their customers, just about making money. They won't get any of my business again.

    poor customer service

    Don't bother ordering takeout from this place. They deliver half of the food and when you call to inform them, they promise you the world and never deliver. This place has gone down hill SOOOO quickly. It's not what it used to be. The 2nd Ave location seems to be under new management and it's obvious that the new guy is inexeperienced and unprofessional. I've heard they have lost a lot of business. It is obvious why this is happening. Eating at the restaurant is not any better, actually it is worse. My friend waited an hour for a menu. No one even made an effort to apologize, so she gave up and walked out.

    A solid choice!

    For generous portions and quality ingredients, this Blockheads never fails to deliver. I order from here once every few weeks (sometimes a couple nights in a row, to be honest), and I've never had any of the negative experiences outlined below. They even delivered to us at a Starbucks once! The burritos are expensive but HUGE, the shredded beef is perfectly seasoned, and the shredded cheese is mouth-watering. Get any burrito or the shredded beef tacos.

    Quite Functional

    Since Burritoville closed we've been looking for a quick, reliable Mexican delivery and so far this place has delivered. Yes, there are places that have more variety, but when we're hungry and want good basic burritos quick, this is our call. We've ordered 5 or 6 times, and each has been quick and what we ordered. Of course, we ain't ever gonna eat there - walked by a few times and the volume was far beyond what I consider civil for dining.

    This place is dead to me.

    This used to be our go-to Mexican delivery place, but in the past couple of years, it has gotten so poor that we'll never order from them again. As others have mentioned, enchiladas (my bf's favorite) are no longer on the menu. What is left on the menu arrives late (usually longer than an hour), cold, and dried out. They've even managed to mess up my usual, the no-dairy burrito, either leaving off the soy cheese altogether and not letting me know that they're going to do so (beans and rice does not a burrito make!) and now they've replaced their old soy cheese brand with something that tastes like Kraft singles made out of plastic. Disgusting. I also can't tell you the number of times they've lost our order (ok, I can...3) and have promised us a "discount next time" (which never happens). We're over it. We've thrown away the menu.
