    What happen to this place??

    We have gone to Blockheads for years and have just recently stopped for good. The past few times the food has been terrible. The quality has really taken a turn and is no longer fresh. The dishes and sauces seem to be made with poor quality ingredients like a fast food chain. I don't recommend this place anymore, there must be a better mex option on the UES. Its not worth it, even after a few margaritas!!

    Never again!

    What poor delivery! After being told that I should expect my food to be delivered in a half an hour, I am still waiting for my food (an hour later). I called and the woman on the other end of the line said it was "on its way" and that I should have been told it could take up to an hour. When I said that that was not what I was told, and I expect some sort of discount, she basically said too bad. So I am following through with what I told her I would do on the phone, which is let everyone know that they should choose another option for Mexican delivery. This place is a no-go!

    i just picked up food here after a little sabbatical, and it's still as delicious as the last time. the portions were hearty, the vegetables were fresh and it was altogether yummy. the girls at the counter, however, could use some training in etiquette.

    I don't care- I think Blockheads is good

    I don't know what Blockheads is like now, but I would imagine it would still be delicious. I used to go practically every weekend for brunch with my boyfriend at the time, and we loved it. The food always tasted really fresh and filling, and they were always generous with the mimosas. The waitstaff was really nice and quick, but then again, we came in there so often that they knew us. It was a nice relaxing and low-key place to hang out and have brunch. I would really like to go again and see if it's still as good.

    Great place for vegetarians!

    This place is a great pick for vegetarians! The grilled tofu was a little overdone but the beans, slasa, salads, and chips were delicious! There are plenty of options for all eaters here from rice to wraps! Get there early. though. as it gets crowded quick and stays busy.

    Great Mexican on the UES

    Make sure you eat-in when you decide to finally check out Blockheads - amazingly fresh chips and salsa at the table. Be sure to get the guacamole, a great addition! The burritos are huge - for 4 of us, the bill was $50 - a great value! A little crowded, but well worth the visit!

    Going downhill

    For a few years, Blockheads was our favorite delivery place. In the past 6 months, the food has gotten pretty subpar, and the portions have gotten much smaller. I really think they have a revolving door in the kitchen and are using cheaper ingredients. Sometimes it has bordered on inedible. We still try it every 3 or 4 weeks, just in case it has gone back to the good old Blockheads we used to know. And as of this minute, it hasn't.
