    Oh man, I own a business around the corner from el luchador and I am obsessed. The grilled Mexican corn, their quesadillas, sitting in an RV with lively music. Such a unique spot in NYC. I love it.

    Tacos on point not to mention everything else. A little airstream trailer, friendly staff & outdoor seating complete the picture. Try the short rib, steak or carnitas. Then back to your desk for a nap

    The fish cod taco and the carne asada and it was pretty good. I love the crunchiness of the cod and the freshness of the tortilla. Double tortilla is free.

    Socal caliber fish tacos - lightly beer-battered with your choice of addicting hot sauces. Great burritos too. Enjoy from the cozy decorated airstream trailer out front 👌

    Really tasty and cheap tacos! I love their chicken tacos with guacamole. There is a cool old school bus that has seating in it parked just outside that is fun to eat in.

    If you order anything but tacos here, you're a fool. BEST TACOS EVER!! The short ribs and steak tacos are my faves. Be sure to request (free) double tortilla; otherwise, they can be sloppy to eat.

    Should have higher ratings as a decent FiDi lunch spot. Super friendly service and adore the cozy atmosphere. Hard to find crispy fish tacos in FiDi, this is one of your better options.

    Hidden little gem in south seaport, warm up on the coldest of days in the heated trailer with some chicken tortilla soup.

    Get the short rib tacos or the carnitas burrito. Pair either of those with a homemade horchata.

    Cute hole in the wall with good tacos and burritos. Get double tortillas on the tacos, they're sloppy (in a good way)

    All the tacos are great, short rib quesadilla very good, sopa good, 3 salsas, service and seating not good. Intercom didnt work so they did nothing... very slow. Horchata not good.

    Even with no line, if you see anyone waiting somehow you'll wait 15 minutes. If you see a line and people waiting, cut your losses. Also no beer yet 😢

    Disappointed with the quality of the meats. The steak, pork and short ribs were too dry. Their patio is a cool place to hang out during summer.

    Tacos here are decent but the service is abysmal. Much better food options nearby at smorgasburg.

    Slow service so not a good option for a quick bite during lunch rush. If you gave time, great to sit outside with a beer!
