A low-key but bustling little restaurant. The food is inexpensive and tasty. The service and the atmosphere are great. The tacos are the thing to get.

Went here a few years ago and loved it. Corn in a cup is a must. Laid back atmosphere with great service. Cant wait to go back.

Can recommend the pork and the lamb tacos. Best ive ever tasted. Cafe type place, food served in plastic baskets but the most delicious, authentic Mexican food ive ever had. Spent 9 days in NY last year and ate here twice! Really cheap too.

Same people that own the Jersey City outpost. Same excellent food. No chipotle style burritos here. Great tacos. Everything on the menu is excellent. A little cramped (but that's pretty typical for NYC.) Good staff. Worth a go.

This place is really small so prepare yourself to wait. Best option to wait? Go to the bar next door and have a beer! And what about the food? Well, the food is just delicious! I tried the Tacos and in the end I had...More

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
