Time Out New York says:

Taco fiends listen up: We just got word that the three brothers behind the Eat Out-award-winning Cal-Mex street cart are set to open their second brick-and-mortar location tomorrow—this time, in Greenpoint tomorrow. The new 65-seat spot, featuring a diamond-cut steel facade reminiscint of its mobile outposts, will expand on the Calexico Carne Asada menu with new items like Baha-style fish tacos, elote (grilled corn with queso cotija and cilantro) and a 645 burger (a blend of brisket, chuck and short rib on a ciabatta bun with their signature chipotle “crack” sauce). For the first time, you will be able throw back a brew alongside your carne asada burrito. The joint will have a full bar serving both south-of-the-border and local beers, including house label El Barrio (a dark Mexican-style ale made by Six Points), and cocktails such as a Jalapeño-Mint Margarita and the Manhattan Ave, a riff on the manhattan blending Partida Anejo tequila, Carpano Antica, and rhubarb bitters. Come summer, the eatery—outfitted with formica tables, a 25-foot white oak bar and antique mirrors—will open a 50-seat garden, but for now, you can get your taco on indoors Tue–Sun from 11:30am–4am.

L Magazine says:

Calexico, the quickly expanding chain of local cart and brick-and-mortar outlets for the best Mexican food in NYC that has grown from its humble beginnings as a pair of Soho food carts to include a delicious spot in Red Hook/Columbia Waterfront District and a mobile unit at Brooklyn Bridge Park, has just opened its latest restaurant at 645 Manhattan Avenue in Greenpoint. Looks like it’s going to be an all-burritos-n-tacos holiday menu for North Brooklyn this year.

  1. DISGUSTING! NOT authentic and NOT the best in NYC!

  2. Don’t know what Raoul’s problem is but I liked it.

    It’s a rarity that I slam places anonymously in comments sections, but I was very much excited for this place. Delivery guy laid on the doorbell. Burritos were mislabeled. Caesar salad looked like an autopsy. Burritos were ultra-bland, and the tortillas were like waxed paper. We’ll try again in a few months.

  4. One thing that REALLY gets me about this place is that they claim that they are in “Greenpoint” but they don’t deliver north of Greenpoint Ave. There are people up here that want to eat their food that apparently aren’t allowed to. They should just call it Calexico Williamsburg, or *crazy thought* deliver to the 6 blocks that they’re not covering.
