    Unmissable! The atmosphere is great, service is good, food is delicious! Everything is made in-house, even the tortillas, and right in front of you. Go, now!

    Excellent place to take a group. Call in advance to reserve, and make sure to get the tuna tostada and al pastor.

    The new space evokes the traditional taquerias of Mexico City and adds authentic breakfast dishes to the menu, including eggs tinga ($14) and huevos rancheros ($11). Read more

    The Gringa Madison taco is really outstanding and the Sonoran Shrimp taco is so damn spicy, you'll want to take a cold shower when you finish it.

    They make their own corn tortillas in house- and from freshly ground corn, not just corn flour! You can smell it when you walk in. Cool environment. Fresh juices are great, so are the homemade salsas

    Love Tacombi Nolita but heard iffy things. Honestly & surprisingly loved my Al Pastor & Crispy Fish tacos + the deliciously cheesy corn quesadilla. Cute spot and great for a quickie -- meal that is ;)

    You know the food is authentic because the owner grew up slinging tacos on the Yucatan Peninsula. Too many wonderful things to say about here besides you'll see me here at least 3x/week.

    Cant go wrong with the crunchy fish taco. And the chilli relleno was insane as well because I had no idea it comes in taco form. Well done sir. Well done...

    Order the chile relleno taco, the baja crispy fish taco & the al pastor taco. They have some online only specials like their burritas (not burritos) & tortas.

    Tastiest fancy tacos in the city. Get the crispy fish and some others. Don't you dare forgot that Black Gold spicy oil. Also: guacamole for the table.

    Great for after-work drinks and dins with friends. My go-to: michelada, chips & guac for the table, esquites, and a crispy fish taco. If I'm still hungry, then the carnitas taco too.

    Great tasty tacos -- get three for a full meal. I'm a sucker for all things al pastor and it doesn't disappoint. Service is generally really quick but the wait times can be brutal.

    Atmosphere and vibe A+, tacos B+. Go for cheap tacos. Definitely get the famous taco, as well as the guac. Really fun spot to go with a fun group.

    I usually go with the Baja crispy fish. The breakfast carne (steak and eggs) is a good one! It’s more of a breakfast burrito.

    Omg. Very hard to find authentic Mexican in NYC. Huge space, didn't have to wait on a Friday night. Incredibly attentive wait staff too. Can't wait to go back. Btw, get the corn!!

    The chorizo verde toluca and the baja crispy fish tacos are really good. Tacos are small so get 3-4 different ones to try.

    Beautiful open space, and everything here is great. The fresh made corn tortillas are excellent and I can't come here without getting the Baja Crispy Fish taco

    The margaritas are good, the spiked horchata, and the 'rubia' (watermelon juice, tequila, and lime). Tacos are awesome and the atmosphere is swanky in the most lighthearted way.

    Guac with homemade sauces $12 and corn esquites with cheese and lime $7. Shrimp taco was dry $7. Fresh juices $7. Good service and atmosphere

    Grab a monopolio negra beer and enjoy tacos al pastor, Berkshire pork carnitas, Acapulco shrimp and the gringa quesadilla. You just can’t go wrong here.

    Puerco Toluca is amazing. Crispy fish is the better fish taco. The al pastor was underwhelming. The guac is crazy good too.

    The crispy fish tacos are the bomb. Also get the guacamole. Haven't had much luck with the cocktails though.

    Possibly the best Palomas I've had. Fantastic tacos, lively atmosphere that transport you to Mexico City. Service could be better though.

    The lobster and fish tacos were delicious. Lobster was a little overpriced though - $17.50 and it has less lobster than a lobster roll. Also got the rice and beans, which were surprisingly dry.

    The vibe, music, decorations all work. The food leaves a bit of room for improvement. Still - this place does make you forget you're in NYC, which is a huge compliment.

    The food comes out fast so be ready. Any Fresca is delicious and the tacos are 1 per order so mix and match! The chips and guac are fresh and on point.

    The decorations and little bar are adorable. The tacos aren't as good as at tacombi, and there's less of a selection, but fun place to go with friends for a drink and a snack.

    They always ask if you want to to start with guacamole and chips - it's over $11, say no if you don't want it!

    Pricey Mexican food in a loud environment? Check. Try the Al Pastor Taco, and be sure to share the Salt Cod Tostones and Guacamole to start.

    Same owners as Tacombi (Nolita) Lobster tacos - pricey (market price $15 each) but totally delicious! Ceviche was also yummy. Horchata was a little too sweet.

    Generous portions of guacamole, and the al Pastor is a favorite. Good atmosphere, if a little loud. The juices are delicious, too!

    The best agua frescas around... I love the sandia (watermelon) and piña (pineapple). Might be better than some of their tacos.

    This place is a great example of nyc irony. Decorations and $4-$6 for one taco. redeeming factor is their hot sauces.

    Get the baja fish tacos (two are plenty- trust me) and don't miss out on the fresh pressed juices.
