  • Review by Laura Leslie on October 27, 2009:

  • This was one of the more disgusting eating experiences of my life.

    First I ordered a mojito, after asking to make sure it was made from real mint and lime and not from a mix. The server lied; no actual lime or mint ever touched this monstrosity. It was a nauseating combination of sugar, artificial flavor, and bad alcohol. I got a headache after two sips and couldn't finish it.

    When it came time to order, I asked for tacos. Their menu mentions tofu sour cream, which was the only request my waiter understood. Their online menu mentions vegan cheese, but the waiter had no idea what "vegan" meant, so I gave up and said no to cheese. Then I asked whether the rice and beans were vegetarian--chicken stock in the rice? Pork in the beans? The waiter didn't know and didn't care to check. I was going to ask about dairy in the soft taco shell but didn't even bother.

    So the "tofu tacos" arrived--a stale corn shell, a soggy soft shell, a few pathetic slivers of iceberg lettuce and cardboard tomato, and a few pieces of hardened tofu brushed with something like barbecue sauce. At least the rice and beans were sort of edible? I had about two bites and couldn't bring myself to continue. Yes, the prices were cheap, but what's the point if the food isn't even edible?

    The inside is loud, dirty, and small, though the outdoor seating is large and off the street. If you're forced into it, go here for the location on a nice night and have a beer outside, but for the love of god, don't order their food or drink.

  • This is where I eat if I'm out and about in the theater district. Fun people watching if you're seated outside in warm weather, solid burritos, margs, chips, salsa, etc. A good choice for the neighborhood which tends to be wrought with overpriced pre-theater prix-fixe nonsense.

  • Review by AmyArgh on August 1, 2008:

  • I love Blockheads. Any time I can get drunk and eat a huge plate of rice&beans for less than $15, I'm a happy girl.

    Delicious margaritas, and the tofu sour cream is delicious. Get it with fried plantains!

    The outside seating here, though, makes it pretty much the greatest place for a summer-night outing with a big group. I've been here with 7 people, all having a few drinks and dinner, and our bill was under $150. Amazing!
