    Really cool authentic taco place- I loved the fun decor and the taco truck cash register! It's $6 per taco and they are really small. You end up spending a lot for a little & they don't come w chips

    Get the tortillas with guacamole as an appetizer. A bit pricy, but the Tacos are amazingly good.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    When you see a taco shop slinging tacos out of a retro VW van with a pineapple bienvenidos sign, you stop and get a taco. No questions asked.

    Everything about this place is great...crispy fish tacos or bust. Also fantastic jams. 10/10 would eat here again 👌

    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).

    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!

    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

    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.

    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

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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

    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.

    $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

    One of my fave places for mexican food in the city. Solid guac, with nice portion size. All tacos are great, esp the breakfast tacos, try chorizo and egg on soft flour tortilla.

    Fantastic atmosphere and delicious tacos! The corn esquites were to die for! The corn chips and guacamole starts/sides are generous. Great place!

    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)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Horchata was very refreshing on a hot steamy day. Watch the red sauce... it was REALLY spicy. Fish tacos were yummy with avocado crema. Corn with Chipotle mayo was addicting.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!

    Two types of taco are *more* than enough for a hungry customer (tip: use both tortillas to get two tacos out of one)--but be sure to get the esquites, if even to share!

    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?

    Avoid the table under the skylight when it's raining! Also, eat as many tacos as you can. Crispy fish and shrimp are the best.

    The aguas fresas are good here. They are the real deal coming from a girl who lived in El Paso, TX. Good food and great fun atmosphere by little Italy.

    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.

    Tacos are of the off-the-hook variety. Favs are the puerco de pasilla tacos and the chips/guacamole. They do a great mezcal mule as well.

    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 !

    Breakfast tacos are served until 4PM. If you usually get 3 lunch tacos, scale back to 2 - these suckers are huge
