I decided to check out this place for dinner since my coworkers were always raving about how great their burritos were. PLEASE, for the love of gawd, DO NOT go here if you're looking to find burritos. I'll cut to the chase and list what was wrong with my dining experience. The meal started off with a sealed bag of doritos-type, store-bought nasty tortilla chips with a side of Pace bottled salsa. I ordered the grilled tofu burrito, ready to wolf it down at all costs due to how hungry I was but I wound up eating a few bites and leaving the rest of the food on my plate due to how deplorable it was. The grilled tofu had zero marinade. The addition of salsa and guac cost an extra 2 dollars. The entire burrito just had no flavor at all! And to top that, the burrito was wrapped like a giant TACO such that you had to eat the entire thing with a knife and fork! I'm originally from CA so I already know that New Yorkers just don't understand how to make a killer burrito but there are still quite a few places that can make passable ones (Dos Caminos, Calexico, to name a few). This burrito was just so abominable that I will not be returning to Blockheads to try anything else on their menu.

I am aghast to read that someone thinks $9.95 - a $2 increase over a record breaking $7.95 for brunch, is unreasonable. Especially when they were throwing in unlimited drinks! Go with the times! You cannot drink anywhere in an unliminited fashion for $7.95! AND with food! So, for $9.95 plus a modest refill charge, you still have a bargain in a fun atmosphere with good food. This place rocks.

The quesadilla grande, nacho grande, mexcian salad, and tacos are items I often crave. Warning that the portions are large. I love that they deliver quickly, and have vegan options such as soy cheese. Their restaurant itself is like a bar- staurant full of young folks. I love their food, lots of fresh vegetables, the only vegan mexican food I know of that delivers.

I don't usually write reviews, but felt compelled to write this. I tried blockheads for the first time this summer, and as a CA transplant was ecstatic that I finally found a decent burrito place in nyc. since that first time though, I have had two disappointing experiences. The second time I ordered pick-up. I had the chicken burrito with guac and sour cream; it was not good. My bf wanted burritos tonight, and after my warning about my last experience, he still convinced me to give blockheads one last chance. We ordered for delivery - an hour and a half later - no food. I called to check, and they said their computer froze and they couldnt get a hold of me. fine. so I re-ordered and again 45 mins later, had to call to ask where my food was. it finally came 10 mins later. the chips in my nachos were incredibly stale, there was hardly any chicken in the burrito and my order was wrong in terms of toppings. they didnt apologize for being late, and they couldnt even get the order right, or give me fresh chips. Sorry to say, that I will never order from here again.

For many years, Blockheads has, or I should say, had the one of the best free-drinks brunch on week ends. But they've just jacked up the price of brunch to $9.95 plus $2 per refill for a glass of champagne, sangria or margarita. Prior to this, people had been quite willing to pay $7.95 for a so-so brunch as long as the drinks were free. But let's face it, it's the free drinks that attracted people, not the mediocre food that, taken on its own, has been overpriced all along. I think they've gone overboard now that they are in fact charging $2 per drink and I for one will be meeting friends for brunch elsewhere. Someone ought to explain to the folks at Block Heads the concept and the use of loss leaders! If they needed to raise their price for brunch, they could have done so without ending their unlimited drinks offer. And they would still have made a bundle of money from the vast majority of people who drink only two or three drinks during brunch - that amounts to less than a bottle of champagne of the kind that costs Block Heads no more than $2 0r $3 per bottle!

Blockheads is my favorite standby when I can't decide where to eat, and I prefer the Murray Hill location to that of Midtown (too small and cramped). It's always good, always cheap, and even though they don't take reservations, I've never waited more than half an hour for a table. (Even on New Year's Eve!) Sometimes the music can be too loud, but the servers are pretty accommodating if you ask them to turn it down. Besides, usually after a few $3 margaritas, I don't mind the noise! I've never tried delivery, but I plan on doing so soon.

I used to order from here all the time. They have completely messed up my last 3 orders... wrong food, 1 hr late...etc.
