    Coolest. Taqueria. Ever. Bringing the outside inside made for a unique and memorable meal. Like everyone says, get the fish tacos, but try a bit of everything!

    Mouthwatering Tacos.Horchata is a great drink to go with their spicy sauces. Their chips are on point. Really cool space, perfect for parties or large groups. Don't miss out on this dining experience.

    Don't fuck around, get the tacos – hot and greasy, much like the hour long que for a table. Where else you gonna go, some back-street taco truck? Please.

    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.

    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

    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

    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.

    The tacos were pretty delicious. I definitely want to go back to try the ceviche. I love the way the place was decorated. Good for dates and friends.

    You asked for it and I tried it :) Micheladas, fish tacos and corn esquites. Combined with hip atmosphere and cool vibes. This place is a winner.

    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

    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.

    Fresh pressed juices that will make your mouth water for literally days afterward and some of the best tacos in the city. I recommend the corn (omg, the corn), two tacos, and a juice!

    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.

    Mmm! Huevos con chorizo was served quickly and is quite delicious. Substantial amount of taco. Well worth the cost. Good service. Crispy fish was heavenly.

    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.

    Such an interesting and unique set up in this restaurant. The VW van where the tacos are made is a really cute addition. The food was good and reasonably priced.

    All the tacos are good. All the sauces are very spicy. I have no reason to believe the fire safety is anything less than excellent. What more could you ask for?

    Definitely get chips & guac to share with the table. Also, can't go wrong with the crispy fish taco & pork belly tacos. Lastly, try all the sauces on the table!

    Perf. Taco. Spot. Personal favs are the crispy fish taco and the pollo adobo. Complete the meal with fresh sandia (watermelon juice). Atmosphere is darling and authentic.

    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.

    If it's your first time, go with a crispy fish taco and a breakfast chorizo. If you've been before, just work your way down the list – everything's awesome.

    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).

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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

    Favorites: crispy fish, short rib, huevos con chorizo, maiz y poblano. Make two tacos by spreading the fillings into the two tortillas provided and try a bunch with a friend.

    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

    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.

    Split guac and corn esquites with a friend and then get the crispy fish and pastor tacos. I wanted to like their Michelada, but couldn't get past the Worcestershire sauce - get Carto Blancho.

    Love love this place!! My favs were crispy fish & pork. Mgmt is so lovely, gave us a free tostada just so we could taste it. Officially my fav taco place in NYC!

    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)
  • Jorge S.
    Jorge SierraAugust 23, 2012
    $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

    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.

    Everything about this place from the food, the drinks and the interior- it's so well designed. Get the two types of fish tacos and try all the sauces on the table. Some of the best tacos in NYC

    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

    You can climb into the van. Tables are framed with various gameboard tops, backgammon & chess, while eating a daily special w/ a beer. A good lunch break for backpackers in NoLita !

    Be sure you have enough food before walking out with takeaway. You'll probably finish eating and want to go back for seconds...the Maiz Y Poblano in particular was perfect.

    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.

    In the morning, there are eggy breakfast tacos on corn tortillas and coffee made to order on a Chemex. In the afternoon, tacos with braised beef, or seared chicken, or marinated fish. Read more

    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.

    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.

    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

    Parked in the former Seize sur Vingt boutique is a taco truck with a bit of style itself (well-appointed tacos stuffed with agave-glazed pork belly and roasted fish). Serving breakfast and beer too. Read more
