    The Tenant King team started to hang out on the streets of LIC to get to know the users better. We usually end our days here. We recommend the amazing guac, the mexican burger and Skinny's Margarita!

    I order from here because they deliver really quickly. They have an awesome Roasted Corn Salad with Chicken. The Jalapeno Vinaigrette is so tasty with the right amount of spicy kick.

    The steak quesadillas are so good! The meat was so tender and yummy. Tacos and other entrees are just okay. Generally a bit over-priced for what it is and how much they give you, but cute atmosphere.

    Try the Chicharones ! The pork is tender and juicy. The grilled Calamari App is cooked to perfection, their Guac is addictive and their refried red beans are Heaven. They had me at "Cantina"

    Get the elote or guac with either fish tacos (broiled), steak, or beef barbacoa. Skip the dry burrito.

    An upside down mini bottle of Corona in a frozen margarita? Yes! The Coronita is a legit good beer cocktail, aka a Mexican Bulldog.

    Great service great beer and good appetizers however some good portions were really small and the tacos are soft so fall apart really easily just a heads up.

    Pork belly al pastor tacos are really good. The skinny margarita is really strong. Skip the fundido (it's okay) and save room for the tres leches.

    Tres leches (pic) is beautiful but really bland and soggy. The Mexican Burger is ok. After several meals here, everything is just ok. Service is friendly though.

    2nd review, new cook? Better food, however 12 for 3 tacos? Not bad but to be server in a plastic basket? With 13 drinks? Miss Match! Don't go to an Asian for Mexican! And vice versa! Go to Shi!!
