    Getting a seat can be hard, but well worth your time. Tacos, esquites, queso, and enchiladas are all delicious. The service is well-paced and great.

    Fantastic tacos & guac close to L.E.S. Be sure to check out Okuda San Miguel's gorgeous mural across the way ❤️

    The tacos are cheaper around the corner at the Taqueria.

    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!

    The tacos de pescado a las brasas (fish tacos) feature light, grilled fish with shredded cabbage, onions, salsa verde, and chipotle mayo– and they deservedly rank amongst the best in the city. Read more

    Steak taco, lamb taco and both fish tacos (breaded and grilled) are all killer. Default spot to grab a bite and people watch outside before chillandoing at Cafe Select across the street (same owner).

    This place is overrated. Get the tacos - lamb shoulder and the market fish. Yes, you need the flan.

    speakeasy esque environment - the restaurant is hidden away downstairs. make a reservation if you can! and try the mahi mahi tacos & the ahi tuna tostada

  • Patricia L.

    Yummy place for a drink and a bite. Do not go to the BK location as there is a very obvious quality difference.

    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.

    The 'Queso Fundido' appetizer is out of this world, the pumpkin beans that brings on the top mix really well with the cheese.

  • Nisha @honeywhatscooking

    The most delicious Pescado a Las Brasas (grilled fish taco) and Grilled Corn. Love this place.

  • Michael M.

    Don't let him ground level confuse you. The real thing is underground....make your way through the kitchen to the Bar & Restaurant. Awesome concept

  • Kyle P.

    It's good for a small portion of food. I recommend the tacos

  • Marcie Q.

    My fav restaurant in NYC. The counter for a quick bite, the cafe for a fun lunch, and the secret basement for a swanky dinner.

    Marcie Quintana · June 21
  • Sandra B.

    Many don't know, but you need reservations to pass the "bouncer" to go downstairs. Once you get in- blood orange margaritas and fish tacos are musts!

    Sandra Baez · June 14
  • Sydney W.

    I was underwhelmed. I didn't eat my corn, it had no flavor and tons of mayo. The chicken that you can add to salads is really good.

    Sydney Wollman · June 4
  • Jenny R.

    Ordered the tortilla soup and stake tacos. Soup was greasy and barely had avocado, cheese or tortilla strips but did have giant chunks of chicken, very unappetizing, took 20 mins for all premade food.

    This place has tacos, tacos, tacos! And that's exactly what you should get 3 tacos so you feel full.

  • Cordell L.

    This place is a true gem. Fantastic cocktails. A hidden away speakeasy-feel that serves authentic Mexican cuisine.

  • Nicolette R.

    Cool brasserie with a speakeasy vibe. The adobo de puerco is amazing. The worst waiter award goes to the guy with the umbrella tattoo. Totally brought down the experience.

  • ZZubin

    The prices (for sometimes identical food) increase as you move from the bar to the sidewalk to the back room to the basement. rotisserie chicken tacos off the chain

    Tacos tasty enough but not life-changing. Service is slow - waited 20 min for two tacos for takeout.
