Christian V.Christian Van Brimmer: Al Pastor Tacos are the best! The pescado almost as good. Get the guacamole and the Big Star Margarita made with mescal... A smoky, less sweet alternative. Come at lunch for a minimal wait.

Serious EatsSerious Eats: Tacos al pastor, which is spit-roasted pork cooked with pineapple and onion; a crunchy fried fish taco; and best of all, pork belly with tomato guajillo sauce, queso fresco, onion, and cilantro. Read more.
