I've been to two locations of Lobo now, and the second time was by accident. When I saw the menu and realized I was about to be subjected to broken taco shells served up as "nachos" again, I almost left. The food is awful, especially in a neighborhood where Los Pollitos in a couple blocks away, delicious and cheaper. And it's worse when Mexican food is completely bland, I've had better at ChiChi's. The only good thing is the Blood Orange Margarita, I have never had a better margarita. So maybe they should just give up on the food altogether and be a bar.

Not that bad, but not that good, either...

Previous reviews were right to mention Lobo's margaritas: all homemade sour mixes are not created equal, but the bartenders here do a great job of balancing the sweet and sour, and the result is a truly delicious margarita. They also usually have a selection of infused tequilas (they had strawberry, passionfruit, and chili last time I was there), which are also worth a try. Unfortunately, their food doesn't stand up to the great bar. Considering that they're offering Tex-Mex grub, the few dishes I've tried have been bland and uninspired. Even their chicken wings, which seemed like a good idea during a Yankees-Sox game, didn't have much of a kick. My suggestion? Go for the drinks, get dinner somewhere else.

Best Margaritas in Park Slope

Lobo is a great standby here in Park Slope. My girlfriend and I go here whenever were feeling indecisive, or when we want really good margaritas...never any sour mix bullshit, just real fresh squeezed lime juice and good tequila. The food is Tex-Mex with a few southern dishes (chicken fried steak and the like) thrown in for good measure. While it's not Great Tex-Mex, it's not bad either and pretty affordable. Service is always super friendly and the music a great mix of indie and classic rock. Unless you're gung ho on karaoke avoid the night they do it; it can get pretty loud very fast.
