“Excellent street tacos”
Review of Tacos El Machin

Very inexpensive street tacos with a good variety of meats ordered at the register. The salsa bar has a good range of heats and flavors. Grilled onions and a selection of vegetable toppings are also on the salsa bar. It's not a fancy setting but they are simple street tacos so acceptable for what it is.
Tacos El Machin often has a food stand at the summer music in the park series and always is one of the more popular vendors.

I first had some of their tacos from their taco truck at a local event. I was starving so maybe that made them taste better? Went to the shop for dinner and the tacos were just average. The salsa bar is nice and the salsas are really good, but overall I would say "just okay". I love tacos and I wanted to love this place.

Maybe the best in Albany? Not the best I have had by far. Price was good and the food was decent but nothing to rave about. Will try other locations next time. Still looking.

This is a great place for authentic Mexican tacos and other yummy things like burritos and such. I love Mexican food and this is a great place for lunch. The salsa bar has delicious homemade salsas and the best pickled onions and peppers! Love this place for its food.
