I've been down to Mexico twice, and my favorite part was the food. Castro's is quite authentic, and definitely the closest thing that I have had since being down there.

ive been to a lot of different places and had burritos and this is definately one of the best i had. its so good and its HUGE ! eevrything about it is delicious, especially the chicken. i have eaten here plenty of times and they only disappointed once when they put onions in it. this is the only downside. when ordering, be very specific and ask them again at the end of the order to make sure. since there so busy, they tend to overlook orders. besides that, its a great place. there quesidilla is pretty great as well. only thing i disagree with the rest of the reviewers is the price. its not that cheap so i wouldnt give it a single "$". i say two "$$" would be more accurate. but its worth the price.

I am from Texas, and there are only two places in the city that I've found that can satisfy my Mexican craving... Castro's and Lobo. Lobo is much more Tex-Mex, and Castro's is more authentic Mexican. If you like spicy, get the cheese (or beef, my boyfriend prefers) enchiladas with red sauce. WILL NOT disappoint!

This place is a nice casual spot to eat in, with great authentic mexican food. However, if you're looking for mexican food delivery, order from across the street, Taqueria Tepango. Very very similar to Castro's, since many of the same dishes are better but the value of TT exceeds Castro's. But don't eat IN Taqueria Tepango, ambiance is not so good. If you want to sit down, cross the street back to Castro's. We recommend the beef tongue (lengua). Don't get the pipian. It's like boiled chicken with a too spicy cilantro crazed pesto. Weird dry stuff. Fried Porgie is also delicious, if you don't mind a few fish bones ( cause it's a whole fish, as opposed to fillet).

We just went to lunch here yesterday for the first time but it certainly won't be the last. The food was delicious and the portions are huge! And there is a very big variety, it was hard to choose. It was the best Mexican food we've had in NYC, that's for sure. We didn't have any problem with the service, they were very attentive. We sat outside in the back patio and had a nice relaxing afternoon.

Good spot, good FRESH food at reasonable prices... a hang out for sure. Really good value for breakfast too far better than most of the local diners.

Don't believe the hype! This place does not live up to the "Super Burrito" claim. As someone who is always on the lookout for a burrito that can come close to SF's Mission District's reputation for flavor, etc, I hate to say, Castro's will dissapoint you. Don't get me wrong, they do have big burritos, but their salsa is not good, their guacamole lacked flavor, and don't expect cilantro, cuz you won't find any. The veggie burrito I had was 99% rice (and not even spanish rice), filled with bland veggies, and no refried beans. This place was a total snooooze.
