It's basic simple Mexican style food and very good. It's not glamorous and doesn't need it. Mix of people come here for great tacos.

For sure the price is right, portions generous and it's certainly authentic. However I found the chicken and pork tacos almost indistinguishable from one another. The meat is just too stringy and the spices/sauces not strong enough to cover up for the texture of the meat. Yes it hit the spot but it was not memorable in any way and... More

Walking past this gem, a blue light illuminated the sidewalk that caused me to backtrack. Took a brief glance at the menu, saw vegetarian options, walked in. The place was awesomeley lit. Friendly (although reserved) staff greeting me with a smile and nod. I wasn't sure how the ordering process went at first, you write down your order on available... More

Certainly 'no frills' basic experience, but you can't argue with the quality of the food. I had a taco and a tostado, both were fantastic. I have eaten a lot of tacos since in hope of recreating the experience but nowhere has had firstly the unique setting or the freshness of the great tasting food.

Good food, good prices, simply done. Mexican eatery style it's cheap and cheerful and will fill your belly. Take away style with seating.

I used to live down the street from this place, and I miss it so much. I'm currently in SEAsia, and I'm still thinking about it. I'd go there alone, I'd bring my friends here, I'd pick them up on my way home from work. Fresh, delicious and cheap, my stomach growls just thinking about this place. they even have... More

I found this on my way to a friend's show in Brooklyn. It was great, no fuss, just true genuine tacos. Bring your beer, the laid-back ambiance is oh-so-Brooks.

A friend took me here when I visited New York and it blew me away. A Taqueria attached to a soft taco factory. You eat in the factory so don't expect a quiet meal, you will almost certainly have the loud sounds of factory machinery going in your ear the whole time but this only adds to the great atmosphere....

Mexican food. You can find it on google maps or just google. I've been there many times. It's a hole in the wall type of place but it has the best mexican food. Definitely a Soho type of place.
