    Best tacos I had!! And just for $2.50 makes its even better. Highly recommend the Spicy Pork taco. Tacos comes w/ complementary nachos. Clean & spacious inside. New favorite spot!

    Try the Birria de Res taco, the beef simmers with dried guajillo peppers & avocado leaf for three hours, until the meat is tender & infused with aromatics. It's one of NYC's 26 best tacos! Read more

    Tacos are still the heart of the enterprise, rolled into cones in tissue paper, presented with a wallop of thick guacamole. Spice-rubbed shrimp tacos are a little more expensive, but well worth it.

    The birria de res tacos might be my favourite in NY. Seriously hefty tacos, and the meat is incredibly juicy and tender. A bit brisket like, w/ a certain sweetness that works perfectly with the spice.

    The cemita is the more robust and complex cousin of the torta. The seeded buns are stuffed with meat, mozzarella-like Mexican cheese, avocado, lettuce and tomato, refried beans and smoky chipotle. Read more

    Eater: The cemitas are made on bread baked in the restaurant’s own panaderia. This is one of the city’s best and most reasonably priced Mexican restaurants in the city.

    Let the music blast while you chow down on some seriously tasty tacos. Al pastor are simmered in some kind of delicious sauce, topped off with guac. $5 beers. I'll be back!

    The more, the merrier. For $ 2.50 each, these tacos are an irresistible temptation. My favorite one is the fried pork, with plenty of avocado and salsa verde.

    Good authentic Mexican food. Large portions and great value. Tacos were really good with lots of meat. Tortas had lots of layers and were very filling. Oh, and they have a jukebox!

    If the enormous, rotating slab of meat sizzling in the window doesn't convince you to order the al pastor, opt for the tripe or just a simple vegetarian filling. Read more

    Try the cemita with milanesa ($6.75), "a sandwich that packs refried beans, lettuce, tomato, red onion, avocado, chipotles, fried cutlets and a pile of fresh Mexican cheese into a sesame-seeded bun." Read more

    Undoubtedly the best Mexican food in Queens. Order anything and you'll be content. The salsa verde is where it's at.

    The wallop of guac on the taco really take away from the texture and flavor of the meat.

    The breaded chicken cemita is a perfectly executed sandwich. Try the birria de res stewed beef and carne tacos too!

    Quick service and waitresses are nice. The decor feels like a random fast food place. Tacos are ok. Juicy meat but nothing amazing.

    For the vegetarians like me, skip the salad! But the veggie taco is okay. Oh and btw ask for the spicy salsa. They don't serve that unless they think you are Mexican.

    Not the best service, but some of the best down and dirty Mexican food you can get in NY. Haven't had a bad dish.
