    Nolita Local

    I don't get it. Uninspired, sloppily prepared food, subpar coffee, slow service, pretentious crowds...the list goes on. I will concede: the corn is good, but I believe the hype has more to do with the trendite, hipster crowd than the chow. If you stand around long enough, you might see someone famous.

    Best Brunch!

    I love this place! I have traveled everywhere in the US and honestly, this is the only place with authentic tasting Micheladas! The molletes were great (as if you were in Mexico), the corn on the cob was delicious and what a great crowd of people. It's such a cozy and inviting place that I could have brunch there every single weekend. I read some of the negative reviews in this site and think that they just don't get the fact that is a truly Mexican Cuban place.

    Excellent Cusine

    I absolutely love this restaurant! You have to try the Shrimp with garlic sauce. Amazing! The service isn't so good but the food keeps me coming back!

    Not sure why it's so popular...

    This is my first review, but I had to write one because of my disappointment with the food. The adobo pork I had was too salty and, hence, difficult to eat. I am not picky with food. I am a bad reviewer because I'm not critical enough about places, and I think that most places are pretty good. I appreciate appropriate salting of food for flavor. I know that it enhances taste in sweet as well as savory dishes. The salt in the pork, however, overwhelmingly masked any other taste. I suppose that I expected the grilled corn to be hot or, at least, warm but it was cold. I'm not sure if that was intended or not, but I think that it would be best served freshly grilled. They must pre-grill them then place them back on to reheat briefly before serving. The atmosphere is like a dark, loud, tightly crowded diner.

    Yay! I love it

    Love the food and great atmosphere. The place is tiny and packed, there is usually about a 40 min wait for a table - so under the circumstances I think the waitresses did a great job. Food was cheap and tasty. I recommend the cafe con leches and the food dish names something like "tres marias". Corn was pretty good as well.
