I've never eaten here but have always got takeout. The tacos and guacamole are amazing, staff is friendly and it's quick.

Stopped here for lunch with low expectations and was pleasantly surprised. The menu covers all of the basic options, the service was good, the food was tasty, the décor was basic but the place was clean. This would be a great place to bring friends for a casual lunch.

Had the best chicken tacos ever! The guacamole was very good too. All the food was fresh and flavorful! Not bad for my first trip to Brooklyn!

The portions are generous and the food tasty. My favorite taco (ok, pretty much the only taco I've had there) is the chicken mole. It's not always on the menu, but you can ask and hope they'll have it. The chorizo is nice and spicy, too.

finding good authentic mexican food is always difficult in NYC. yola, though, delivers on both taste and price. while it's not as authentic as actual mexican, it gets the job done. the fare is pretty basic: tortas, burritos, flatulas. price is a big draw since you get much for your money. a beef burrito at $9 will last you at...
