Since 1993, husband-and-wife duo Fernando and Yolanda Martinez have fed soccer players and fans with their Vendy Award–winning Mexican fare at the Red Hook Ball Fields. Their first brick-and-mortar location, which opened in South Slope in winter 2013, is delightfully unfussy: same affordable food, diner-esque décor. Tortillas are stuffed with your choice of spicy meat (spinach, mushroom, and zucchini subs are available), lettuce, pico de gallo, guacamole, queso blanco, and crema. There’s also a trio of housemade salsas that vary in heat and texture: The deep-crimson spicy brings a dark, scorching heat; medium has a chunky, tomatillo crunch; and the blended emerald-green mild is thick with crisp cilantro. The famed hurrache, which resembles a supersize taco clothed in a refried-bean-and-corn tortilla, is based on no-frills farmer food, and it can quell a rumbling stomach for hours. You can also get an a.m. fix here in the form of Mexican-style scrambled eggs, huevos rancheros, red or green chilaquiles, or a full selection of standard American breakfast plates.Recommended Dishes
