Good bar.. – Unfortunately I didn't try the food here but they sure do know how to throw good parties. I had a wonderful time here. Had lots of good drinks. The bartenders were entretaining and very generous with the drinks. The crowd, a bunch of roudy young party goers which made it all the better. Be advised that this place gets incredibly crowded and they will charge an admissions fee.

Don't buy the "free party" – I was contacted because I "won" a "free party" having entered the one other time I'd been there. The organizer gave me a date, a Saturday, so I thought it would be a good idea to turn it into a dinner too. So I made a 10 person dinner rez, but then got there to find only one waitress, that we were sitting under a very annoying and unflattering hot spotlight that "couldn't be turned off", and that the drink specials we were promised (nothing about the party was actually free) were only available if we ordered from the bar and not from the waitress. I had explicitly asked about this so when we saw the bar 8 people deep, we just left because $2 margaritas can't be that good anyway. In sum, don't think that getting a free party there means anything, and the people that worked there didn't know much about what was going on.

Fun Happy Hour – Went to dinner with some girlfriends on Wednesday at Calico Jacks and had a fun time. The space is pretty large and accomodates both Happy Hour and Dinner patrons. We only had appetizers which were pretty average. The guacamole could have been a little better but that is only my preference. Everyone there seems to enjoy the happy hour. For $7 you can drink unlimited until 7 pm and they have other fun specials. The crowd was mixed which is great and the DJ played great music. The sangria was awesome and the super large margarita looked great. I would recommend going for happy hour since it seems like the most popular time.

Impressed--for only a few dolares – I'm originally from Southern CA, so i would like to think I'm very familiar of how Mexican cuisine should taste like. After being increasingly disappointed by so many Mexican restaurants in NYC, I decided that great Mexican food the way I like it simply doesn't exist here on the East Coast. Went to a gathering here and I was skeptical, but kept an open mind. The margaritas were FANTASTIC, the staff SUPER friendly, and the guacamole AMAZING, and my entree was very tasty!! It's not pricey, just about right. The atmosphere is very cute, the crowd is laid-back, which is amazing for being in an uptight part of town. It's a fun place to kick back with friends. It's now my fave Mexican place in the city...

Mexican Food? Where? – No, no, no, and finally, no. This place is hardly worth the effort as a restaurant or a bar. Avoid at all costs before it becomes into Coyote Ugly Part II. Actually on second thought, a name change from Calico Jack's to Coyote Ugly isn't a bad idea. Sadly, this place is too "ugly" for that. Crowded, the deafening music, and subpar service don't make for a good night out.

Much Better than Expected – A good time for lunch or happy hour. Great drink prices during lunch and the margaritas definitely have a kick. After work draws a good crowd - mostly 20s & 30s woth the occasional scummy local. Good to go with a group or alone.

Margarita Madness – In sum.the freshest guacamole, the best margaritas (try the prickly pear margarita) great food, for lunch, happy hour or dinner, and a great fun, festive place to be! I love going in the winter, check your coat at the door, because you'll feel like you are miles away from cold NYC! The salsa is very good also. Most places it tastes watered down, but here it is great!
