    The menu is simple and straightforward: burritos, tacos and quesadillas stuffed with either carnitas, grilled chicken, steak or rice and beans, plus a healthy serving of cheese, salsa and sour cream. Read more

    Just think Chipotle and then think fresher and tastier. If Chipotle and Dos Toros were side-by-side, I'd go to Dos Toros 11 times out of 10. Food is fresh, quick, and great. Adding guac is only $0.92!

    Big, hearty burritos with satisfying meat fillings and fresh toppings. The tortillas are cooked with corn oil for a more authentic taste. Dos Toros is the indie Chipotle; definitely worth a visit!

    The rice is made with chicken stock, so vegetarians might be tempted to steer clear. Mistake! For $5 you can get a quesadilla stuffed with salsa, guacamole, beans and cheese, and you won't regret it.

    The Carne Asado taco will knock you over the head with the smoky taste of the meat. Though the guacamole is optional, make sure to pay up because without it your taco will be severely diminished.

    This place is amazing!!! Best veggie burrito around! As a vegetarian, I am annoyed about the rice having chicken stock in it, but I am willing to break my strict vegetarianism for that! 5 stars!

    Two friends from Berkeley, CA came to NY to bring a true California burrito to a burrito wasteland. Modeled after Gordo’s burritos, it’s impossible to tell the difference. Get the Pollo Asado! Jeremy

    Dont get - any tacos, quesadillas, chicken, or the super hot sauce. Do get - burritos, platos (burrito bowls), guac, green hot sauce, w/ steak or pork. Some of the best guac in NYC.

    One thing that's often overlooked but crucial is the way a burrito is constructed. The ratio of its ingredients, how they're laid out, and how the burrito is rolled. This place gets it right.

    Killer order: basic quesadilla with vegetables and guacamole. Because the basic comes with rice and beans, it's like a burrito—but the tortilla is grillllled. And even with guac, it costs less.

    The carnitas (pork) are seared and slow cooked, leaving them juicy and flavorful, with the right amount of salty kick before being wrapped in corn tortilla along with toppings of your choice. Read more

    The trick is to ask what's best (or, what staff is having) that day. Every burrito is fantastic-but the gems are what new innovation hit today. All salsas/sauces made in house daily.

    If your not feeling up for a big burrito, skip the rice and beans and get a quesadilla. It's wrapped up in a tortilla so it looks like a small burrito, but cheaper and less filling. Yummy

    I know you want to get that chicken burrito with everything on it. Resist the urge. Get the carnitas tacos with only a dash of pico de gallo and cheese. They're pure, essential, and extraordinary.

    This is the only place that I have found in the city that compares to the California Mexican taste. Go with the carne asada - tacos or burrito...you can't go wrong either way.

    A less flavorful version of Chipotle with a couple of less toppings, costing about the same. Not bad, but just don't come here unless you want to take business away from the McDonald's of Mexican food

    Cal Mex has never been better here than at this San Francisco-style burrito joint. The carne asada tacos are one of our faves, bulging with tender marinated steak. Don't forget to spring for the guac

    Un poquito pricey for the typical taqueria but pretty awesome. Kind of NorCal style...they had a brisket taco at NYF&WF, so hope that's available as a special. If not, carne asada.

    It's certainly good, but it's far from a legit California street tacos or a SF Burrito. For Manhattan, it's better than a LOT of places I've eaten, and I'll probably return for more.

    Burrito was so so...meat was cold and difficult to chew. Service was mediocre. If you want to try a really good burrito and are close to Lincoln center, drop by Burrito box - much better.

    The food is ok but is far from being a true Mexican restaurant. No self-respecting cook in Mexico would ever add cheese to a taco de carnitas. Much better taco places in the nearby neighbourhoods.

    Their food tastes like lukewarm paper with hot sauce. That is if you GET the hot sauce, which is RED. The green - medium - is tasteless. I had high hopes for this place, but alas, no good.

    Hierarchy of meats: steak > chicken > pork. Bonus tip: the super hot sauce is best used on the side. They'll apply too liberally if you ask them to add it.
