    Lamb and lengua (beef tongue) tacos are incredibly tender with just a touch of a spicy kick. Great brunch portions and a strong margarita. The perfect dive taco joint.

    The waitress was rude!! She ran after me for her tip and was nasty when I told her why she didn't get one. She took our order and never served us. We had to ask for our water, food and silverware :(

    Chips and guacamole are standard. Also a fan of the beef quesadilla.

    Carnitas taco, absolute must. The $7 guacamole though, not worth the high cost IMHO, but maybe I just like my guac differently.

    Check out the enchiladas. Chips and salsa are addicting too. Good veggie options

    Brunch is amazing and enchiladas are to die for. Flan is great too. All of the tacos are great and well priced.

    I can't get enough of this place. When the weather is nice... The courtyard in the back is awesome! Margaritas = strong. Great prices. Best authentic Mexican around!

    Pozole soup cures all ills. Decor is kitschy fun but sitting outside is best

    Clare Lynch · March 18
  • Dina R.

    The lamb tacos, fish tacos, and on the weekends ask for the pazole

    The tacos are phenomenal. The pork are my favorite especially when paired with a Dos Equis. The people and atmosphere are very fun and will keep you coming back for more

    Absurdly delicious Mexican food. Whether you dine in or order you won't be disappointed. Cactus tacos are on point and the guac is awesome

    Insanely delicious food. Very friendly staff that make you feel very welcomed. As soon as you walk in it's a mash between 80's memorabilia, and of course, Mexican themed decorations.

  • Sean B.

    Carnitas tacos are the best. Flautas aren't bad either. The chips they give you when you first sit down are great.

    Ask for their hot sauce and pour it on everything. It's really good!

    Cozy and authentic. Pork tacos were the best I've had in a long time. Don't forget a side of guac!

    The patio in the back = one of the best spots to dine al fresco in Jersey City

    The food is amazing. The carnitas tostada is probably my favorite dish in JC. I do wish they had a different salsa to go with their chips.

    Micheladas are fantastic

    The bistec taco is the best, but they're all good. Brunch bloody marys are $3 and delicious.

    Some of the best Mexican in the New York metro area. Everything is good. Big fan of the fish taco, flauntas and tortas.

    I always have the chorizo tacos, I usually try something new, it's always good and in a dozen or so times I have never encountered rudeness.

  • Aniruddha M.

    One of the best margaritas I have ever had. And the steak is exceptional. Perfect for any day of the week. Expect waiting time on weekends.

    Tacos have the kick that I'm looking for. Chorizo, fish, and carnitas - all so good. Use the hot sauce too!

    Excellent tacos, Tortas, and flautas are served in a casual environment. Sit outside when the weather's nice.

    If you're vegetarian, just order all the vegetarian dishes. There aren't that many and they're all delish.

    The tongue taco was downright bland. My barbacoa and fish tacos were both excellent, however!

    Justin Jonsson · August 6, 2014
  • Vineet S.

    So glad to have this place in the neighborhood. Just $3 for one of the best fish tacos I've ever had. Cool divey vibe, and a patio in the back.

    The Pork Tamale was amazing. And I love how the portions of the food aren't overwhelming, which allows you to try different things. I also had the fish and carnitas (pork) tacos, which were excellent.

    Food is good, but the service not. The servers are cold and not very attentive

    Not family friendly: They don't allow strollers inside.
