    This Eataly-esque Mexican market offers coffee, pastries, and juice in the morning, and a taqueria menu. Cafe El Presidente also features a tortilla-making operation and a bar. Read more

    "Taco Tuesday, all day, all for under $5 a pop. The Al Pastor taco is my favorite, but their special tacos are always great too." - Alexa Mehraban, @EatingNYC Read more

    Unmissable! The atmosphere is great, service is good, food is delicious! Everything is made in-house, even the tortillas, and right in front of you. Go, now!

    Love Tacombi Nolita but heard iffy things. Honestly & surprisingly loved my Al Pastor & Crispy Fish tacos + the deliciously cheesy corn quesadilla. Cute spot and great for a quickie -- meal that is ;)

    You know the food is authentic because the owner grew up slinging tacos on the Yucatan Peninsula. Too many wonderful things to say about here besides you'll see me here at least 3x/week.

    The Gringa Madison taco is really outstanding and the Sonoran Shrimp taco is so damn spicy, you'll want to take a cold shower when you finish it.

    Tastiest fancy tacos in the city. Get the crispy fish and some others. Don't you dare forgot that Black Gold spicy oil. Also: guacamole for the table.

    Atmosphere and vibe A+, tacos B+. Go for cheap tacos. Definitely get the famous taco, as well as the guac. Really fun spot to go with a fun group.

    Great for after-work drinks and dins with friends. My go-to: michelada, chips & guac for the table, esquites, and a crispy fish taco. If I'm still hungry, then the carnitas taco too.

    Omg. Very hard to find authentic Mexican in NYC. Huge space, didn't have to wait on a Friday night. Incredibly attentive wait staff too. Can't wait to go back. Btw, get the corn!!

    Great tasty tacos -- get three for a full meal. I'm a sucker for all things al pastor and it doesn't disappoint. Service is generally really quick but the wait times can be brutal.

    The chorizo verde toluca and the baja crispy fish tacos are really good. Tacos are small so get 3-4 different ones to try.

    Possibly the best Palomas I've had. Fantastic tacos, lively atmosphere that transport you to Mexico City. Service could be better though.

    Guac with homemade sauces $12 and corn esquites with cheese and lime $7. Shrimp taco was dry $7. Fresh juices $7. Good service and atmosphere

    My favorite taco place in the city. These tacos are incredibly delicious. Try the crispy fish,quesadilla with corn and the black bean and sweet potato.

    Beautiful open space, and everything here is great. The fresh made corn tortillas are excellent and I can't come here without getting the Baja Crispy Fish taco

    Ben SiekmeierApril 16, 2016
    The margaritas are good, the spiked horchata, and the 'rubia' (watermelon juice, tequila, and lime). Tacos are awesome and the atmosphere is swanky in the most lighthearted way.
  • Chez O.
    Chez OngJuly 17, 2015
    Puerco Toluca is amazing. Crispy fish is the better fish taco. The al pastor was underwhelming. The guac is crazy good too.

    The crispy fish tacos are the bomb. Also get the guacamole. Haven't had much luck with the cocktails though.

    The lobster and fish tacos were delicious. Lobster was a little overpriced though - $17.50 and it has less lobster than a lobster roll. Also got the rice and beans, which were surprisingly dry.

    The decorations and little bar are adorable. The tacos aren't as good as at tacombi, and there's less of a selection, but fun place to go with friends for a drink and a snack.

    The food comes out fast so be ready. Any Fresca is delicious and the tacos are 1 per order so mix and match! The chips and guac are fresh and on point.

    Same owners as Tacombi (Nolita) Lobster tacos - pricey (market price $15 each) but totally delicious! Ceviche was also yummy. Horchata was a little too sweet.
  • Raphael L.

    The vibe, music, decorations all work. The food leaves a bit of room for improvement. Still - this place does make you forget you're in NYC, which is a huge compliment.

    Pricey Mexican food in a loud environment? Check. Try the Al Pastor Taco, and be sure to share the Salt Cod Tostones and Guacamole to start.

    The best agua frescas around... I love the sandia (watermelon) and piña (pineapple). Might be better than some of their tacos.

    Generous portions of guacamole, and the al Pastor is a favorite. Good atmosphere, if a little loud. The juices are delicious, too!

    This place is a great example of nyc irony. Decorations and $4-$6 for one taco. redeeming factor is their hot sauces.

    The Al Pastor taco is what you should be ordering. Perfectly grilled pineapple flavor compliments the pork.

    Make sure you ask the server about portion sizes. Some things are literally twice the size as the item right above it on the menu.

    How much could one order of guacamole possibly cost? 11 dollars? Otherwise though this place is A+, love the space and the esquites!
