    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!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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. http://www.mecritic.com/places/place/6791/Mercadito-Cantina

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

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

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