This restaurant used to be inside of a bodega, and then it moved to its own space next door, complete with string lights, friendly service, and almost as many margarita pitchers as there are people eating. Come here with friends, and get a chimichanga and some fajitas piled so high you’ll need several napkins for your face and hands. For the money, this little spot beneath the BQE does some of the best Mexican food you can find.
