Los Mariachis Coney Island Ave.

805 Coney Island Avenue

This is interesting in the least. I entered this establishment due to seeing the chairs and the interior design from the sidewalk.

I did not really need to eat, but ordered nachos, for the sake of sitting in this venue and having a beer, delighted in an ambiance quite authentically Mexican.

Catholic Mexican items adorn with a very interesting interior that includes these painted chairs and tables that match.

The services was excellent. The ambiance beats any hipster and or gentrified venues, that serve dishes that are far from what Mexicans eat (those venues that catering to white middle class and those who assimilate to that from other colors).

They have tongue for whatever one likes, such as nachos, or other items that are meat oriented.

They have live music on the weekends.

My admiration for this venue comes from my appreciation for unique qualities that are not overly contrived, such as one finds in the gentrified venues.

The food was good. It would be a recommend for anyone wanting Mexican. I only disappointed in the fact that the homemade hot sauces was not as hot as other venues like this.

It is just south of Cortelyou Road, before the gentrification and tapas cookie cutter venues begin to pepper the streets, drowning out the more rich and authentic neighborly places.
