DT brings the SF taqueria experience to NYC! We use the finest ingredients, have a terrific team, and deliver uncompromising excellence, one burrito at a time.
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!
real taqueria with just 15 seats, cooks chopping meat and cilantro as you walk in, 2 tacos de carnitas for 7 dollars and a stinging cold can of tecate for 2 bucks and a quarter and a nickel
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!
The anti chipotle/qdoba - this West Coast import definitely makes its mark on the East Coast mexican food world. Juicy meats, fresh tortillas, greatt guacamole, and amazing spicy sauces! A favorite!
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 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
Craving simple and fresh Mexican food in Union Square? Check these guys out. Featured in New York Times recently, there's usually a line but it goes pretty quick. Best to order to go.
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
1st time here, I had the steak quesadilla & jarritos soda. Enjoyed it both for $12. The quesadilla's crust was crisp and the steak were juicy pieces. This place gets two thumbs up
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.
As a former San Diegan, I'm always looking for a kick of spice and Dos Toros' hot sauce does this and more. The Carne Asada Burrito is my top pick but this monster needs to be shared. —Dara
Really good, clean (ungreasy) food. Get the steak taco. One is enough for a small meal. It's not quite Pinche Taqueria, but it's probably not supposed to be...and the portions are much larger!
Don't buy into the hype... How can you call yourself a Mexican spot when the people working in the kitchen are not even Mexican, I've had a better burrito at a Greek Diner. Not really worth it.
the tortillas are bomb*, but if you're in a fork kind of mood, go for the plato—same innards as the burrito, but more! (*seriously, i seldom use such a term)
Always get as much guac as humanly possible. In the burrito, on the side, with chips, etc. You won't regret it!! (Oh yeah, and always order a burrito!)
Great fresh burritos that don't leave you with that 'why did I eat that whole burrito' feeling. When 'asked what kind of beans?' say BOTH, (it's called party style)
Cults love this taco joint because they say it's "the closest thing to California Mexican in NYC." Fun fact: Dos Toros was started by a previous member of The Morning Benders.
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.
It's like Qdoba or Chipotle, but with all homemade and fresh ingredients. Not much inside seating, but still a favorite for takeout. They sell Mexican Coke here.
Good but ... San Francisco people need to be warned that this place is based on Gordo's (a good but not great place) and not the places in the Mission.
Get the burrito, skip the reg plate (this is NOT Chipotle). the tortilla is fresh and has cheese. Get the super hot salsa if you like hot. It's no joke.
This San Francisco style mexican restaurant really hits the spot with their quesadillas and burritos, but don't get one without their guac, it's the best!
Carnitas quesadilla with guac is where it's at. Skip the rice& beans in the burrito, they're just filler anyway.
The bowl was good. Similar to chipotle except they have crunched up chips to put in the bowl too. Little small but the line moves quick
Easy order for noobs: Plato de carnitas, rice & black beans, cheese, salsa, guacamole, sour cream: Easy win !
Excellent burritos; I love how they melt the cheese when steaming the tortilla. Get one with guac and a Toronja Jarritos. You won't be disappointed!
Afraid you'll have to undo your belt when you're done here? Grab a quesadilla instead of a burrito. All the same tasty fillings yet less filling!
Carnitas carnitas carnitas. Get it in the bowl. Or if you're craving a burrito, go for the quesadilla. Cheaper and basically the same size.
Carnitas burrito. Spicy salsa is actually spicy. Better value than chipotle, slight edge in flavor department too, especially the hot sauce.
Real pros mix n match fillings - get a basic (rice and beans) taco, with pork! Get a quesadilla that's half chicken and half steak! GET CRAZY.
