Zona Rosa is a Williamsburg standout - and that's not just because of the giant trailer that sticks out of the restaurant's exterior.  For cheap, delicious, authentic mexican eats - go here. The happy hour deals on drinks and chips and guac are excellent (the pineapple margarita is perfectly sweet and strong), and it's also a great spot for a sit-down meal. Whether you get them with or without meat, the enchiladas are excellent and are perfect for everyone.


We originally chose to check out this Williamsburg mexican joint purely because of the proximity to home, but were pleasantly surprised. Although the interiors and design are pretty kitsch, and the service was a little bit awkward, the food and drinks definitely made the experience here worthwhile, and definitely worth coming back to. Upon arrival we were greeted immediately with chips and guac, which were devoured immediately. We then started with drinks - I had my first michelada, which was game-changing. And then the tacos and food arrived. The tacos in particular were delicious, as were the enchiladas. If you can ignore the interiors and service, definitely come here for a good meal!
