It's average, what can I say? Some places murder the taco. Greasy, bland, Americanized. Cinco de Mayo gets a B/B-. It's decent enough. And their burritos are stuffed to the gills, but it's a crap shoot every time you order. Sometimes you'll get pockets of...More

The food is some of the best in the neighborhood, but they can keep you waiting! The price is right. Some of the best mole sauce I've found in Brooklyn.

Good food experience here, however be prepared to wait in line to order from an individual behind a plastic window (like a teller at a bank), who is often to busy taking phone orders to pay you much mind, equate to a DMV experience. Also...More
