    Everything is always good as usual but the whole place smells like a toilet. There must be something wrong with the plumbing. It makes it hard to seat in the place and eat.

    The chicken taco was greeeeeat! And so was the grapefruit soda....however, it's a bit pricey for a taco joint...more bang for your buck if you get a Burritto!! They huge!!!

    Tasty stuff, with excellent carne asada. But they rolled my burrito the wrong way, so I ended up with all meat when I started and all rice at the end.

    They no longer have beer on tap, thus no more $3 pints of Bengali. Such a bummer, I don't come here nearly as often anymore.

    High on the tasty scale. I love the house-made salsa. It ain't exactly California, but it reminds me of old haunts on Valencia in SF.

    The wait could be considerable for a taco because of the volume of delivery orders this place gets. But it is typically worth it, and probably the best Mexican in the area.

    Quesadillas + crack sauce (or any sauces from their sauce bar) is beyond win. One of the best Mexican joints period (coming from a girl who lived in So Cal). Worth the trek and don't forget cash.

    Date #16, Elizabeth: Tasty carne asada. Huge selection of salsas and hot sauces. Prepare for a decent wait, though—while they might be brick-and-mortar, their wait times are reminiscent of a cart.

    Supplying SoHo with South-of-the-Border delicacies every weekday. Swing by early, since many of the specialties – particularly the namesake skirt steak – sell out faster than you can say Ixtapaluca.

    Top billing goes to the carne asada. With flavor so intense, it‘s hard to justify ordering anything else. That said, the pulled pork and pollo asado (grilled chicken) are also excellent. Read more
