Go here for happy hour, not lunch. I'd much rather go to Chipotle! Taste sacrificed for health.

I don't like going here in the winter time, it's small, camped, the music is too loud for any kind of conversation and it smells. In the summer, this place is fun. Don't go after 5p on any day, you will have to wait a long time to find a table. If you can get a table, the drinks are cheap and it's a nice way to spend a summer afternoon outside.

Pros: Cheap drinks, Friendly workers

Cons: Place is just to small.

I got sick from Blockheads twice. You think I would have learned my lesson after the first time! The service is absolutely AWFUL. I waiting 45 minutes for my order, and when it came it was completely wrong.
Too bad too, they have great margaritas!

Pros: Margaritas

Cons: Terrible food, even worse service.

This is the only Blockhead's I've been to so far, and I really enjoy it! The service may not be the fastest, but it is friendly, and for such cheap, huge margaritas, who cares!! I recently found out that you can "supersize" your already dirt cheap marg for a few bucks more! Awesome! The food is healthy mexican, with tons of vegetarian options! Very sad there is no shrimp on the menu anymore though... Also, disappointed that my drink came in a plastic cup instead of a real glass--maybe it's a Summer time thing, but not environmentally friendly!

I love the outdoor seating! And I'm sure they don't recommend it, but I love sneaking chips to the birds!;)

PS: Love the margs, the mojitos are too sweet for my taste, but try the Black Lotus: 1/2 sangria & 1/2 margarita, it's to die for!

The food looked good, but I didn't even get a chance to try it. I agree with the poster below the wait staff leaves much to be desired. After an hour of patiently waiting to be seated, our table was snaked by another pair. Our host didn't have the guts to ask the other patrons to give up their seats and tried to just ignore us after asking why he wouldn't rectify the situation. The rest of the crew seem to be more concerned with socializing with friends visiting than taking care of their customers, evident by seeing many checks on tables waiting to be picked up and customers obviously ready to leave. Very frustrating experience..........

Cons: SERVICE, ATTITUDE

The waiter got my friends food order wrong and took awhile to fix it, took over 20 minutes to get us our drinks. This was on a day that it wasn't busy at all. Paid the bill in full, left a few dollars as a tip. The waiter flagged us down when we were leaving and DEMANDED a larger tip (wanting at least 13+ dollars for a 70 dollar bill of drinks and appetizers) and made a huge public scene, continually commending how phenomenal he thought his service was and when we said we had a few singles and bigger bills, told us that he had change if we wanted to give him a proper tip. Apparently, at Blockheads...gratuity is more "your service was terrible but PLEASE give our terrible wait staff that can't move a drink in under 20 minutes enough money to buy a house" instead of "thanks for great service.:"

Pros: The food is phenomenal

Cons: The wait staff made a 45 minute meal into a 2 hr+ ordeal and publically embarassed a small party of 3.

my bf and i went here after work for 5 de Mayo.. and although it was super packed (took almost an hour to seat us) we had an awesome time. They are known for their cheap margaritas ($3 for plain and about 4.50 for flavored ones) We got a few drnks while we were wating to get seated and when we sat down the plates were big and we shared a big drink so the bill only came out to $27!!! and we were ful!! Its very noisy so dont go there for a romantic dinner. And its not authentic mexican food (they serve nachos in a chinese takeout box?but who cares..it def. was fun and we felt like we got our moneys worth! so we will def go back! :)

Pros: cheap food, cheap drinks!

Cons: packed in there

I've only eaten outdoors at this location and would only return if I can get a table outside. The ambience is beautiful and festive, and best for having a fun, casual time with friends. Though I'm not a vegetarian, I find myself ordering their tofu burrito again and again! Their drinks are pretty good and definitely worth the price. If you're looking to get a table right after work, good luck. This place fills up fast.

Pros: burritos, drinks

Cons: service can be slow

Food was pretty good. The waitress was funny and nice. It was a little overpriced for burritos and appetizers. Frozen margarita was super. The only thing I advise is to try to eat outside. I went with my best friend we decided to go inside to avoid the 40 minute wait for a table outside, but the inside has a wierd smell to it.

Pros: Good food, funny waitress

So I had my first Blockheads experience after a long day of work, and boy, were those margaritas soothing. A combonation of great food and fast service really turned a somewhat horrible day into a great experience. While the styrophome plate and plastic forks are a bit canny, it was overall a great meal. My waitress was funny and really accomodating. She reccommended the beef burrito and the nachos...GREAT CHOICE. I've gone back several times since then, and definitely reccomend it to anyone who wants great mexican. enjoy a good meal at an even better price.

Pros: everything

Food is great, if not a bit overpriced ($9.75 for a spinach burrito? Hello!). We went in shortly after noon and it took the waitress over ten minutes to put six sodas on a tray and schlepp it from the counter to our table and the one next to ours, a distance of about four feet. It's very loud: the combination of music and people talking made conversation extremely difficult. The biggest atrocity for me was the use of disposable plastic and styrofoam for every single food and drink item delivered: totally unnecessary. It's a sit-down restaurant for chrissake, pull out some cheap china and aluminum silverware that can be washed and reused. This lack of concern for the environment will keep me from eating here again, despite the close location to my worksite and decent food.
