Terrific skirt steak – We just tried this place the other night and were pleasantly surprised. The guacamole was very tasty.
The skirt steak was fantastic, cooked just the way I like it. Rice & beans were good overall.
Definitely recommend this place. Nice bar area as well.
Surprisingly good Mexican – $3 Mexican beers during happy hour, and they give you free chips and salsa. You can make it a cheap outing, but I recommend getting some food, as they have pretty bomb Mexican food, which is rare in NYC. The Carne Asada Tacos are legit..
Memorable Mexican – Vamos is a great neighborhood, Mexican spot. I meet friends here on occassion after work for happy hour margaritas. They allow you to indulge on chips and dip that aren't stale or an afterthought. Love the tacos and quesadillas. The frozen, fruit flavored margaritas are not only delicious, but strong! And the DJ on Friday and Saturday nights plays a great mix of music. Definitely a place to check out on Cinco de Mayo.
Friendly Service – I was there for lunch during the week, so it wasnt so crowded - but something tells me this spacious restaurant gets quite lively on weekend nights.
The chips were warm and crisp, and the accompanying salsa was tasty - though not very spicy (a good thing for many). I enjoyed my enchiladas suizas, though they could have been slightly more seasoned. Still, overall, a good effort.
Service was friendly, Their Margaritas are HUGE and delicious.
Its a great place to sit and grab a bite, check it out.
AMAZING FOOD – The food is great here and the staff is very friendly. I come here every time i get a chance. I recommend it to anyone looking for a nice atmosphere & great food. The drinks are very well made too. Don't get me started on the desserts they are to die for. ...YUMMM!
Great restaurant, great food, great experience!!!! – This has become one of my regular spots. The food, the drinks the whole experience is wonderful. If you're not into loud music though, this place might not be for you, and New York City might not be either. I've never had a bad experience there. The waitstaff is always so wonderful and always makes my experience a good one.
It is always busy and they are always running around so give the guys a break! They work hard, they work all night, so don't be a snob and try to complain that they have bad service because I have seen first hand how hard they work. The bad reviews below seem to be from close minded people who can never be satisfied.
Thank you Vamos for always being so accommodating and for the best happy hour! See you again soon!!!
Too loud, at all hours of the day and night! – Ok, so I haven't ever been to the restaurant, but I live across the street and down the block, and Vamos has been blaring the same salsa music seemingly 24/7 for the past few days. I guess it's their Cinco de Mayo marathon, but I don't care! It's 4am on a Tuesday night and they only just stopped, after the police came on a noise complaint. Ugh. I need sleep! Vamos needs to invest in some sound proofing, please!
excellent and diverse mexican food – I've been to Vamos a few times and the food has been consistently fresh and delicious, great margaritas as well.
I recommend shrimp salad, quesadillas and lamb burritos. There is a nice selection of desserts as well, tres leches cake is my favorite.
The atmosphere is festive and casual, they play great selection of music.
I'd recommend this place for a group of friends or even a date and will definitely go back.
NYC's best Mexican Joint – I ate here with my fiance and he always finds cool placest. This isnt the coolest, but it is inexpensive and darn good food. I will return with friends im sure. He said he found them on Citysearch.
Good Food Good Margaratas Good Location – It's just around the corner from my apartment and I am hooked on it. It is a great spot to get drunk and also to eat wonderful food. I had some taco thing last time and it was awesome. Me and friends come here at least once a week.
