    Smokey cashew salsa with the guac is amazing. So are the Brussels Sprouts Tacos!

    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

    Definitely order the guacamole with all the salsa options. Then get the short rib pastrami and carne asada tacos.

    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

    Nice place for a Mexican brunch but very limited menu options

    The best gourmet tacos in NY. Look out for the steak and lobster.

    Romantic, intimate, and a ton of tequila. I think you see where this is heading.

    If you want to freshen up with a delicious cocktail at Empellón Taqueria, try a Paloma mixed with Pueblo Viejo Blanco.

    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.

    Ok, this is admittedly unrelated to food.... their music selection is fantastic.

    Great tacos, get the short rib and pastrami taco. Expensive for what you get but food is certainly great

    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

    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

    The margaritas and tacos were amazing! The passion fruit marg, spicy cucumber marg, or the classic were all amazing. Fish tacos & Brussels sprout tacos were my favorite!

    Great guacamole and salsa variety along with an excellent taco lineup. Trendy spot so it is a bit expensive, but a worthy treat.

    Brussel sprout tacos are incredible. A must, even for meat eaters.Chicken tacos have great flavor. Get the salsa verde, it's creamy.The chocolate flan is so different-- save room for it. Great margs!

    Food is good, but there is no reason to pay $8 for a taco.

    Do a taco tasting: 5 awesome and unusual tacos with surprising ingredients, and complimentary Margarita for $55. Sign up fast, these sell out quickly!

    Food was really good but won't be back anytime soon. Waitstaff was inattentive, and inconvenienced. People at the end of our table were constantly bumped sitting at the table by people moving about.

    Appalled at the service - I waited an hour and then they tried to give me the crappiest seat in the place (right next to the hostess stand). Unfortunate bc the food is pretty good.
