    Such a fun restaurant!! Love the speakeasy feel of walking through the kitchen to get to the bar and restaurant. The food, service and drinks were all fantastic! Get your reservations in early!

    If you're pretty hungry and are getting tacos, be sure to order at least three of them as their portions are relatively smaller in size. And note: they'll charge extra for a mini cup of pico de gallo.

    The DJ spins great beats, lighting is dim & the décor is rustic & so sexy - making this underground lounge a perfect place for a fun gathering w/friends. The #TamarindoMargarita is fire. Must go back!

    This place is too delicious! The steak tacos are so addictive! I love the tortilla soup. The salad is great too. I love that they have quick take away options, a cozy restaurant to stay in, and a bar.

    Take your tacos to go to a bench in the pocket park across the street.Two excellent vegetarian taco options.Don't miss the popsicles in summer.My goto for fairly fast/cheap/healthy dinner in the hood.

    This is a hidden gem of Soho! I would consider it under a speakeasy, tucked below Corner Deli, this place has amazing tacos, corn and tequila. Make sure you have a reservation!

    Tacos are one of those foods that are a) hard to mess up and b) hard to get tired of. Akhtar Nawab is an excellent cook no matter what he’s cooking, but these tongue tacos are my favorite here. Read more

    This "takeout" place is anything but. Behind the employees only sign, the stairs lead to one of the best Mexican restaurants in town. It only seats 30 & you must make reservations months in advance.

    The restaurant has two faces. One works as Mexican buffet/bar and the showroom, the other one is downstairs; fancy, locally known, dark atmospehered, hidden, Mexican based semi fusion food serviced.

    This is my least favorite restaurant I have ever been to in New York. So loud you cant have a conversation. Rude wait staff. Not worth it. Got sick after eating here.

    Overrated, underwhelming, bad Mexican proxy. I'm Mexican and a) We aren't assholes like the guys there; b) Real Mexican food is way better than that; c) We are friendly. Skip this place, trust me
