This is a dive on Spring Street that opens at 8am six days a week, and it’s been around for decades. At this point, it’s a classic, and you should have a drink there. The inside is pretty old-school (with wood floors and tiny wooden stools to crouch down on), and it’s all pretty charming. Maybe it’ll smell bad, but hey - it’s a dive. They’re supposed to smell bad.

Papatzul seems to be just more middle-of-the road Mexican that pairs acceptably with strong margaritas. It’s the kind of place where you have to yell at the person sitting across from you, and should probably order everything the moment you see your server because you might not see him again for a while.
