    Great place for takeout. The papas y rajas tacos are heavenly. I regretted only getting three. The rice and beans were just okay. Again, I wish I had gotten an extra taco instead.

    Get the barbacoa and shredded chicken tacos. The chorizo is served with mashed potatoes! Unique and fun. Hit up the new spot on Hoyt to get more open and bright dining space!

    Tasty carnitas and they are playing 90s rock. Great place for a quick burrito/taco. Guacamole is tasty but has a lot of black pepper. Not a bad thing, just FYI.

    Carnitas are the most superior taco option here by far. Get some to go then take them across the street to Mission Dolores and enjoy with a cold beer in better atmosphere.

    I had three tacos: Camerones, chicken guisado, and potato poblano- - all super good ! Which, as a Texan, I never say about tacos in nyc. Will definitely return.

    Korean taco was delicious. Best part though, my wife left her phone and they were awesome about getting it to us. Pumped about that customer service.

    No reason not to keep going back as often as you can to try all the different flavours, but if you see Korean beef as an option, don’t think twice. It´s incredible! Read more

    To move from sunset park to park slope is to leave taco paradise. This place handles business. Byob! I never knew about micheladas until the awesome guys mixed one up for me. Nicest staff So great.

    You can never go wrong with Tacos and Horchata. Unless you're not at a taco spot. But this IS a taco spot, so eat up. TACOS.

    I'd go as far as saying this place is good and not just good-for-new-york. Start with the burritos that won't send you into a coma.

    This place only plays instrumentals to hip hop songs over the speakers. If you can tap the entire song, they will buy your meal.

    Carne asada and carnitas better than stewed chicken. Try the enchiladas as well.

    Shrimp burritos are loaded with way more shrimp than your usual fare. Add guacamole and tip for $10 total.

    Get it as a plato, not as a torta. Their rice and beans are so much more satisfying than any white bread bun.

    Soggy tortillas that fall apart, overly sour pickled onions, and mushy chorizo. The only saving grace was decent carnitas, even if they were really greasy.

    They were out of chicken AND all seafood. Plus the guy at the counter was rude and didn't acknowledge us for over 5 mins. The food isn't good enough for me to warrant going back.
