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.
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
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
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.
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

The red hot sauce has more kick to it than you might think.
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.
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.
Fantastic burritos and tacos.
Try the Tacos and spot it on Foodspotting!
Get the guacamole, better than chipotle. Do NOT get the hot sauce - unless you like your mouth ruined. For real, I like spicy but this is ridiculous.
when asked what type of beans, say "fiesta" to get both
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.
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!
Probably my favorite taqueria in NYC.
Better than chipotle! Whoa.
The hot sauce is delicious. Wonderfully spicy and full of flavor.
We like it with double meat, or extra beans, in a tortilla or as a plato--this food is delicious no matter how you order it! Just make sure you guac it out!
Their burritos are top notch. Nice and fresh. Add guac and a beer.
have a steak taco, but hold the cheese and guac. the steak shines on its own with some hot salsa.
Best burrito hands down
Winner of Best Burrito in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! Spring for the guac topping - it's the perfect addition to the perfect burrito.
Fiesta double chicken plato to go - no rice, green sauce and pico.
Great alternative to Chipotle/Q'doba, but veggies beware: rice contains chicken stock. Hot sauce is ROCKING kinda spicy.
the red salsa is dam spicy...so good!
What they call "crunchy" taco is actually a soft corn tortilla grilled on the skillet with cheese melted right onto it. It's delicious!
Come to NYC to eat SF style burrito!
Top 2 burrito in the city (other than chipotle)
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
Try the Rice and Bean burrito - Excellent (via @Foodspotting)
The grilled chicken taco's GREAT!
Warning: There are no grilled veggies at this location. Still good though.
Best burrito in the city
fresh, but a bit bland for tacos.. i prefer la esquina for comparably priced tacos..
If you like their delicious superspicy hot sauce, ask if they sell it by the bottle every time you're here - hopefully they'll notice the demand :)
Its overrated. Its like a mexican version of Pop Burger. Sure, its tasty but shouldn't be in any serious culinary conversations.
Quesadilla instead of burritos, and definitely try the crunchy tacos they're great, to drink get a Tamarind Jarritos, real mexican soda
Best burrito I've had in NYC
looks like chipotle, but is infinitely better.
Go LIGHT on the hot sauce if you want to live.
Super-nom and appropriately popular San-Fran style burritos and tacos. Get it extra hot unless you're a wimp.
hungry? get double (or triple) meat.
Like Chipotle, except better.
From the clientele and the food I feel like this is a secret portal to San Francisco.
