    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.

    Mercado & tres citricos are great tequila cocktails

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

    The worst service and meal of my life. The entire staff was texting while we had no utensils for 15 minutes.

    Jill Hornstein · June 29, 2014
  • Raja H.

    (As of May 2014) Sunday and Monday after 5pm, $23 for unlimited tacos

    They don't really honor reservations so be prepared to wait

    Adam Heller · March 30, 2014
  • Ajay K.

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

    Ajay Kulkarni · January 29, 2014
  • Mike H.

    This happy hour is the dopest. Dank ceviche. Gangsta guac. Mastapiece margs. Highly recommended.

    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!

    The Corcoran Group · August 30, 2013
  • Jessica H.

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

    Jessica H · July 16, 2013
  • Michael Z.

    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!

    Mahi mahi tacos.. so delicious.

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

    Serious Eats · April 2, 2013
  • Red F.

    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.

    Red Fabbri · March 12, 2013
  • Ana A.

    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.

    Ana Alanis · March 9, 2013
  • Elizabeth I.

    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!

    Elizabeth Iriz · March 9, 2013
  • Sarah G.

    The food was delicious but the service was slow and the entrees were brought out at different times.

    Sarah G · January 5, 2013
  • Eric J.

    Get the brussel sprouts. You shan't be disappointed.

    Eric J · January 2, 2013
  • Tony X.

    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.

    Tony Xerray · December 30, 2012

    horrible place. .came to support restaurants affected by sandy in food crawl. bartender was rude. basically said we had to get special or may as well leave. go to cafecita. you'll get treated better.

    sharmeen · November 18, 2012
  • Bryant B.

    Tacos in order: estilo baja, carne, carnitas de puerco, pollo, pastor & pescado. Didn't try the rest

    Bryant Bosland · October 23, 2012
  • William H.

    Dont get the cucumber margarita.

    William Hendershot · July 14, 2012
  • Jennifer K.

    Other than the mango guac, really nothing special. Overpriced margarita's and food is good but nothing special.

    Jennifer Kashdan · June 10, 2012
  • Yogie T.

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

    Taco Camaron !!

    🔘Juanmpe🔘 · April 26, 2012
  • Phil C.

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

    Phil Common · February 14, 2012

    Fantastic food and tacos

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

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

    Benjamin Brimm · December 30, 2011
  • @sloane

    Can't go wrong with their daily specials and guacamole sampler!

    @sloane · December 18, 2011

  • Laurent M.

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

    Laurent Magloire · December 2, 2011

    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. · November 26, 2011

    All you can eat tacos on Sundays and Mondays for just $23 - BEST DEAL.
