    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.

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

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

    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.
