“Fun for a pit stop” when you're in the East Village, this “lively” counter-service Mexican specializes in tacos al pastor featuring spit-roasted pork shoulder and housemade tortillas; there are other “creative” options and “seriously good” drinks too, plus graffiti art lends a “trendy” feel to the “no-nonsense” digs.

Love this place! Inside is totally divey but that’s what makes the atmosphere so great. Amazing food - tacos and nachos are awesome. Good selection of tequila including smaller batch tequilas. Shots are all $5 for good tequila...hell of a deal for NYC!

Absolutely delicious! Some of the best tacos I have had in the city. They offer you a variety of salsas to add to your dish. The guacamole is pretty darn good too.

Catherine and the staff were friendly and gracious on a late Friday dinner. I keep coming back to this awesome restaurant/bar for a reason: stellar tacos, service, and drinks.
