    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.

    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.

    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!
    Michael Zucchi · July 4, 2013
    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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    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?

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

    We got a surprise free dessert after switching tables to fit another party. Also the mango guacamole is great!

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

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

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

    Must try cocktail ----> b.n.g.t.m. (Big nose goes to mexico) with Herradura Blanco & reposado, dark rum, guava, orgeat, and a touch of fire ... No really, FIRE. :)

    Grilled corn. Get it. Now. So good. Go across the street to Mercadito Ave B for the camarones tacos.
    Jen Lee · May 13, 2009
  • Jennifer K.
    Other than the mango guac, really nothing special. Overpriced margarita's and food is good but nothing special.

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

    free guacamole and some fish tacos, plus a rude duo we had to outsource, good times with a broad named after a beer
    RDW · February 20, 2010
  • Benjamin B.
    Can't get individual tacos here. Four of the same per order, that's a deal breaker.
    Benjamin Brimm · December 30, 2011

    Courtney Colette · October 18, 2010
