    Chips and guacamole are a must! Plus it’s served with two delicious salsas...one smoky and the other spicy. Loved the classic margarita and fish tacos.

    Second room in back so don't get scared if the front is packed. Our server was incredibly friendly and helpful with food allergies. Drinks were good, and food was even better. Tacos are small go for 3

    Guac is best I've had. Make sure you splurge for the extra sauces for your chips. For dessert, go around the corner and get a Salty Pimp at the Big Gay Ice Cream shop!

    Try the BLT tacos. Chicken tacos are also nice.

    They have hands down one of the best tacos. Order the guacamole, the 7 salsas, red snapper ceviche, sea bass taco, chili pork taco and skirt stake taco. They have some great vegetarian options also!

    Might be my favorite Mexican restaurant in the city. Pastrami, Lamb, and fried oysters tacos are amazing. That cashew sauce with the guac is incredible.

    Get one of the melted cheeses, the chorizo one is especially good, but they're all good. The guac is delicious too! And great tacos!! Delicious food, a tad pricey, but worth it!

    The food was excellent. Unfortunately, our service was lacking. The place was packed and the staff seemed overwhelmed with monitoring tables scattered across the place. Will give another try again.

    Great margaritas - Highly recommend the shishito peppers, sea bass taco and broccoli tacos. Friendly staff who rang to keep us updated on our table wait.

    For vegetarians, the brussels sprouts tacos are can't miss. Everything else is average.

    Their margaritas are fresh- no sour mix! Get the fried egg taco- the salsa is fantastic.

    Stellar tacos and guacamole and margaritas and, well, everything. Not cheap though. Good for a date, first or otherwise.

    Sure, chef Alex Stupak hasn’t had decades of taco-making experience, but we think he’s doing a pretty amazing job with the skirt steak tacos. Read more

    Chef Alex Stupak is a genius with pastries, and now he is a genius with Mexican food. It is my go-to restaurant when I am in the West Village. Get the tongue taco with potatoes and arbol chile salsa. Read more

    Cool things down with a fresh and not-too-sweet pineapple cilantro margarita. (Unless you’re one of those people who thinks cilantro tastes like soap. And if you are, we’re so, so sorry.) Read more

    The fish taco is the way to go. Also, def get some salsa borracha on the side - it has a smoky mezcal kick. 💃🏻🌮

    Awesome low key bar that sells fantastic tacos. It's hard to say if it is a bar or restaurant from the setup. There are no reservations and no waiters so just grab a table and order at the bar.

    In the mood for tacos? Then this is your spot. Start with the guacamole - the jalapeños give it some kick! Go for the carne asada or fish tacos. Be sure to add verde!

    spicy cucumber marg is the underdog of the drink menu. Make sure to eat fish tacos + shishito pepper queso. The best ceviche is the hamachi with shaved fennel and avocado. Sat night duck tacos=100

    Everything is good here. Love the chips + guac and the 7 or so salsas. Make sure to get extra chips bc they are so good they will go quick. Margaritas are well executed - I prefer the classic.

    Masa waffle (center), baked egg whites, sopes, tacoa
  • Kavita B.
    Kavita BabaMay 28, 2015
    For brunch: avoid the baked egg whites with chickpeas or the deviled egg tacos. Go for the Brussels sprouts tacos and about 20000 orders of the masa waffle
