    So I was wrong or my NYC Mexican expectations have tempered, but these are some of the best tacos downtown. Crispy fish, chorizo & egg stand out...plus the fun atmosphere and reasonable price.

    Love the casual vibe & the tacos! The guacamole con totopos is awesome - perfect homemade crunch, and the corn esquites is yummy w/out the mess of eating corn off the cob (& not as small as they say).

    I love the ambiance at this sit-down taco joint. Hip, colorful, tasty. If you're drinking, try the michelada - a spicy beer-based concoction they do well. I get the veg or fish tacos, never disappoint

    Loved the fish taco. Really only needed two, but they recommended everyone order three. Plus all the tacos have two shells so you can kind of redistribute all of the toppings, and there's 2x tacos lol

    So incredibly good. The corn is 2nd best on block but that's only bc cafe habana is down street. Corn is much easier to eat though as its off the cob. Don't leave here without a spicy fish baja style

    $3.50+ for a taco is kind of ridiculous especially since these are some tiny tacos BUT they are pretty damn good and the Michelada was one of the best ive had.. alambre, fish and roast pork combo BOOM

    Probably the best tacos I've had in NYC hands down. Get the pork belly and crispy fish tacos. Split the tortilla shell to make 2 into 4 tacos. The sauces are also delicious. Habanero is spicy!

    Don't come in two tortillas anymore :(. Expensive tacos but if you have to eat tacos in Manhattan/nolita, this (or el presidente) is where to go. Crispy fish tacos and a side of corn is the moves.

    A "combi" is a Volkswagen Type 2 bus: made in Puebla and ubiquitous in Mexico until the mid-90s. I rode the back of a combi to pre-school every day; now you can watch your tacos made inside one.

    Being from the west coast, my standards for legit Mexican food are pretty high. This place exceed them. Try the esquites, the pork taxis and of course the guacamole. Skip the tea, go for a marg.

    Every taco, tostada or tamal here is simply amazing! But if you're only in for a couple of them, go for the cochinita pibil taco and the chicken tamal. Incredibly delicious still doesn't capture it.

    The only move with these mini tacos is to separate each tortilla and split the contents - instantly double your order for free! 3 tacos is the perfect amount for lunch.

    Great place! Loved the corn esquites. Also good to know that each taco comes with two tortillas and a lot of meet so one taci can be turned onto two :) Best taco is the crispy ensenada fish

    At lunch time, take a comfortable seat at a high-top table and indulge in a delicious array of tacos. Fish are especially tasty. (note: 1 taco order can be 2 if you split the tortillas)

    Small Mexican joint in Nolita that serves up amazing tacos - we especially love tacos al pastor. The best part: tacos are served in corn tortillas, so your gluten-free friends can still enjoy!

    Totally weird only-in-NY spot. Pay for tickets at the counter, then have your delicious tacos made in a converted VW bus. The seating area is covered but it definitely feels like you're outside.

    It doesn't get any better than a food truck that's parked indoors, owned by Food Network star Aarón Sanchez, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner fare. Try the fish tacos; they'll blow you away.

    two tacos should be more than enough. make one of them the pescado (grouper fish). be prepared to eat them spicy. and you'll definitely want to stay and take in the lazy sunday afternoon feel

    corn esquites are the highlight: creamy, spicy, and citrusy with a subtle smoky flavor, one order is more than enough for two to share - if you're willing

    Have been eating here since they opened. Love the tacos. Sad to say that the quality of service has gone way downhill. The experience is not what it used to be. Took 10 minutes to be greeted at table.

    Each taco comes with two corn tortillas which you can easily make two tacos with! Great chips with guac, chips are thick and remind me of Juanita's chips from the west coast.

    I go out of my way to visit this place whenever I'm in town. Either of the fish tacos - veracruzean or crispy - will treat you right. Wash them down with a glass of horchata.

    The housemade chips and guac are great, but tacos aren't as good as they used to be. Still good, but it's started to go slightly downhill. Expect to wait about 45 min on a weeknight.

    One of the best crispy fish tacos we've ever tasted. At $5 each, they're admittedly a little steep, even for SoHo. But they're light, fried, and crunchy without being greasy. Read more

    Breakfast tacos...best thing there. The ordering system has improved, but I still don't understand the formal service. It's also not cool to prep your herbs over the trash can without washing them.

    Crispy Fish tacos FTW. Pork belly tacos also a safe bet. Corn is good, but overrated in reviews, split a cup. Skip the guac and the alcohol. Both are over priced for the taste.

    Tacos are solid but the workflow / service is a bitch. Your best bet -- go for table service and be prepared to wait. The quesadillas are cheesily delicious, but taco-sized so you need more than one.

    Food was ok. If you've done Wahaca in London - it's no where near on par with that. Guacamole needs more zing and the other dishes need a cleaner flavour. A tad disappointing

    The guacamole is unbelievably good and a huge portion. Throw a combo of their four hot sauces on top. The chips are unfortunately mediocre, though.
