This place is terrific. Great staff, great authentic food (they actually make real tamales here!) and great price. It is a jewel of the EV/LES. I'm shocked at some of the bad reviewers - maybe they just don't know a good thing when they see it. For special rec, try some of their sandwiches ("tortas"), they aren't as simple as the menu describes them. Also, real chilaquiles for breakfast! Wow. And fantastic horchata. Can't say enough good things. The one occasional bad is delivery can be a problem on very busy nights, like when it's pouring or snowing or abominable weather. Sometimes they don't even answer the phone. That's cause they are real people, not a chain or a fancy faux eatery.

I think it is great food, and quite authentic!! guess you have to order things like the burritos and tamelis

The food is sloppy, cheap mexican. Not really worth it. Also, they serve Tortilla brand chips from the grocery store. The food is low end but still good if that's what you're looking for. The guys who work there are really friendly and fast, that's a big plus. Only come here if your looking for cheap fast food mexican.

the carne asada burrito is a home-run. Topped with some guacomole and green spicy salsa verde makes it a grand-slam...

This is my favorite Mexican spot in the city. I can't eat burritos anywhere else now.
