    Some of the best margaritas and tacos in the city. We especially love coming here for the all you can eat tacos (only $23) and happy hour specials. Great food without breaking the bank!

    Head there in the late afternoon on a weekend. Pick a brunch beverage of your choice and the Estilo Baja tacos. With a group? Order a a variety of tacos so you can try them all!

    Second best mexican food in the hood (after Zaragoza Deli, fur realz), but more upscale and sit-down-y. Resist the all-you-can-eat tacos, not worth the price. Still great food though.

    Love this place -- Great service, food, and the margaritas are amazing. Try the cucumber and the habanero.

    Enchiladas are really tasty. If you go on Saturday or Sunday you can get a brunch item plus rice and beans and a cocktail for $18.

    East Village taco spot with solid tacos that go beyond standard rice and beans. A little pricey, but open late.

    A fine Maxican restaurant in East Village. Schrimp tacos & quesadillas are delicious.

    For a perfect experience, get the shrimp tacos (the best in nyc) a reposado margarita and guacomole. Ask for the habanero salsa crema!

    Taco Tuesdays: $5 for 2. Get the pescado and the mushroom. One of the best deals in the East Village.

    They were very accommodating as our party grew at the last minute and they found a way to squeeze us in to an already packed dining room.

    Stuffed pepper is a great dish on their menu. All tacos are really flavorful with fresh ingredients too.

    Besides being fun to say, this mini restaurant chain boasts a fabulously fun happy hour deal from 5-6:30pm. Read more

    This Choice Eats participant brought Tacos de Camaron: Shrimp, roasted garlic, chipotle mojo, and avocado. Tasty!

    I didn't see any mention of the Tortas on the tips, but after I had the Pastor I couldn't believe it was not up here. Long live the Pastor Tortas!

    I have tried almost every type of taco from Mercadito and in my opinion, tacos de camaron are by far the best!

    Nothing overly exemplary about this place but it's tasty Mexican-ish foodstuffs. Not many places in the City that you can get Victoria beer though, so that's nice.

    Try the mango guacamole-avocado, mango, jicama, and chile chipotle-big hit at Choice Eats!

    sunday and monday nights = all you can eat little tacos all night long for $23 (happens other nights, starts later). here's the challenge: can you eat 10?

    Did the all-you-can-eat tacos twice and I have to say, they really aren't that great. All the tacos were just a little too salty. They charge extra for salsa,Wth! Sunset park Brooklyn is taco heaven

    Tiny, disorganized, and average food. Big letdown. Major overabundance of rich white snobs that have problems figuring out what the minimum tip is. Thankfully, drinks were great and so was our server.

    Get the Huachinango (whole red snapper) and ask for soft taco shells to make tacos. Split as an entree w/ three people and although it's mkt price, it'll be cheap and delicious.

    Creative tacos. The carne asada is the best by far.

    GREAT food. Seriously. And the prices are high-ish, but better than others are claiming. BUT: the service was beyond awful. Seriously, BEYOND. And if you sit near the kitchen you'll smell the bleach.

    The homemade tortilla chips alone are worth going for. Order one of their guacs to accompany them. Yum!

    Can't get individual tacos here. Four of the same per order, that's a deal breaker.

    Food SUCKS! But drinks are good and a bit on $$ side. Staff just stand around getting paid for just standing.
