    Be there before 6PM to get happy hour margaritas and chicken quesadillas - so delicious. Tacos with beef are melting in your mouth but the portion is tiny, more of an appetizer.

    Really cute rooftop if you can get up. Limited veg options, but super delicious.

    Really nice rooftop and restaurant! The view from the rooftop is amazing

    The braised beef chili is rich with tender meat and heady with cumin, and the tacos are pretty good too, but the right move is a single dish: the shawarma, which is slow cooked and griddle crisped. Read more

    Awesome rooftop and great food at the street level restaurant but when it comes to service is surprisingly bad and inexperienced treating customers. Bit unbalanced. Hope gets better because is a pity!

    The Chilean rosé sangria was perfect! So delicious. It comes with little chunks of strawberries, I highly recommend!
  • Radairis D.
    Very nice decor and a nice rooftop. Only flaw is that the price is high for a low quantity. $14 for the smallest guac in the world. Don't come with an empty stomach unless you're willing to spend $.

    The fish tacos and cauliflower tacos are so yummy and they make one mean margarita!
  • Amy A.
    30 minutes trying to be served. Told the wait for the roof was "20 table so it's good odds", elevator bouncer a d!ck - you'll enjoy if you want to be 'scene' not respected (intertwined with Pod39)
  • Kristy V.
    The hostess was terrible, the service was great, everything is overpriced and they were out of literally everything at 9pm on a Friday night. I don't have a lot of nice things to say about this place.
  • Jenn C.
    The tacos were ok, but all aspects of the service - host, bar, food service - were really subpar. Too much attitude.
  • Ben W.
    Never thought a taco place could be pretentious. But alas.

    The rooftop!!!

    Good for late night drinks.

    Awful service. Also the manager- Brianna- is extremely unprofessional - from just her cheap choker to her lack of customer service. Sad that anyone hired her in this industry
  • Caitlin C.
    A daily happy hour offers margarita for $7, a selection of beer on draft for $5, and glasses of wine are $7. There are also snacks like empanadas ($5) filled with chihuahua cheese and serrano.

    Literally all their tacos are amazing. It's pricey, and portions are small, but the flavors they incorporate are incredible.

    The chili is great, but more of a soup, so not really ideal for sharing

    We had the lamb shoulder for two ($41). The meat was tender and delicious but not enough vegetables. The portions of other taco plates feel more like tapas to me. Marg was great ($14). A bit pricey!

    Ride the elevator to the restaurant’s Murray Hill rooftop (a/k/a Pod 39 Rooftop), where a limited menu, strong mixed drinks & views of the surrounding pre-war apartments with terraces are the lures. Read more

    Very lively (and loud) taco place. The taco parties brings you a giant braised lamb shoulder for DIY tacos, fun to share. Not the most authentic but definitely good for the crowd

    To visit the rooftop bar, check in at the host stand inside this joint. While you wait try the chips and guac. If you don't care about the rooftop thing, go round 8p to find a spot 2 chill.

    It's the Scene you've been looking for (or not). No hipsters here, not even many Bros in their boat shoes, just medium-scale surbanites who are in on the train (?). That said, tons of good energy.

    CHURROS: paired with semi-sweet chocolate. churro outside is a little hard and chewy - should be hard & crispy or soft & chewy. overall, subpar churros.

    BEER BATTERED FISH TACOS: magic of the silver bullet? the beer-battered fillet is fresh and crisp enough to satisfy an englishman on the east side of the atlantic. only complaint not enough sauce.

    CHIPS & GUAC: guac is topped with cilantro (for those non-cilantro eaters) - a little too much lime making the guac not as creamy as it could be. chips are super salty.

    Awesome hangover brunch. Get the chorizo fried rice w/ poached eggs or Moroccan lamb naan taco. Top it off with a bloody mary. After your meal check out the 17th floor rooftop for killer views

    During brunch, they serve two of the best dishes from the lunch and dinner menus: the chicken thigh torta and the stellar lamb naan tacos. Also get chilaquiles, and a steak and egg burrito.
