Small, scruffy, restaurant but great welcome, enthusiastic waiter and really enjoyed the food. Let them recommend what you eat - and don't worry about price, it really isn't expensive - and so tasty. This is authentic Mexican food, we tried 7/8 different items form menu, enjoyed everything but especially guacamole and two different chicken dishes.

I can't remember a finer taco experience. The restaurant is small, but if you can grab a seat at the bar do not pass up the opportunity. This stuff isn't just good by taco standards, it's one of the finest tastes in NYC. The deep-fried pork brain quesadillas are simply astounding.

We went here for a light dinner and had guacamole as well as two quesadillas. Also, we had a couple of drinks. We enjoyed the place basically, even though it was really crowded and we had to wait for a place at the bar. The bar keeper really didn't seem to like us (or people, generally) - he didn't talk...

For a couple from Texas, going out for Mexican anywhere but home can be iffy. La Superior was a HUGE surprise! We got the guacamole for a starter and my husband said it might be the best he's ever had. Very fresh - full of great onion and cilantro! I think the chips were freshly made, too. We both got...

My boyfriend and I had a amazing week visiting New York and for our last night before we flew home to Dublin, we decided to give La Superior a go. We saw it had some great reviews and it was close to where we were staying in Williamsburg so we thought it would be a perfect place to spend our... More

Visited this place yesterday as a recommendation from a website and it was spot on. Try the shrimp chipotle tacos and the beef tongue tacos, they are simply to die for (and i dont use this expression lightly). Also its a great place for an afternoon drink on a nice sunny day :)

One of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Brooklyn. Always fun and lively, the tacos are delicious and the margaritas dangerously good. The waitstaff is very attentive and fun , definitely worth the visit hen craving authentic street style tacos.

I live down the block from la superior and always have been interested this restaurant due to the fact that it always seems to be crowded with cool looking people. So I ventured in and had some tacos & guacamole. I have to say the talkers were OK I've had many tacos in my life and these were average but... More

The food is decent, but the tacos are the smallest ones I ever had (less than 5 in. diameter) for the price of $3.50 and up each.The margaritas are horrible. You will basically get a large mediocre pre-mix for about $15. The important thing to know is that the place is Cash-only, but you will not see that posted anywhere... More
