Don't let the look of this place scare you. It does look like a hole in the wall but that is the best kind of place to get great mexican. This place is family owned, so support your neighbors and shop local. So this place has some excellent mexican food. I usually stick to the Bean and Cheese burrito with the queso blanco but I had the xoaco cheese as well. Trust me I am a native Southern Californian...try this place, you will not be let down. The two sons of the owner are super cool and totally respect their customers.

Quality Mexican food is hard to come by in the city. At Downtown Bakery, the food is delicious and authentic, granted I have only tried the chicken burrito. The burrito surprisingly is all white meat, with rotisserie chicken skin, which with the blend of rice and beans is quite tasty. Best burrito in New York. The service is alittle slow, but the food is well worth the wait.

I am extremely happy that I happened upon this place a couple of years ago. It has great food. It's a small restaurant with a family vibe to it. I've taken so many people there and all of them were amazed at how delicious the food was. I generally stick to the tacos and burritos. I'm not very adventurous, but one day I'll get there. The workers are quite nice and if you'd like to eat in you just take a seat and they will bring the food to you when it is ready. Patience is a virtue! The wait can sometimes be a bit long...especially if you are getting your food delivered, but the wait is well worth it when you get a taste of the food! It's really good. Occasionally, I've had my order mixed up but most of the time it is right on. If you'd like a taco with "real" beef and not mystery meat then this is the place to go! Also, the meat is very tasty and quite good on its own. Do yourself a favor and check this place out.

Owned by paisas, this place totally rules. Order off the menu or ask for special requests, I'm stoked every time I eat here. And the delivery guys are totally down. Breakfast is rad too, for $3.50 you can get bacon, eggs, 4 tortillas and pico de gallo.

Ordered delivery for pork burrito, steak tacos, side of rice and beans, guacamole side and sour cream. 20 minutes delivery time. Called back after 45 minutes to chase delivery. "Leaving in next 5 minutes." Waited another 25 minutes before calling back again. "Food is leaving now." Waited another 10 and food arrived. Guacamole was missing.Sour cream was missing. Pork burrito was steak and the tacos steak meat tasted like second hand meat.

So after living in LA for awhile, I'd basically given up hope of finding good mexican food here in NYC. Whenever a friend would suggest a place to me I was always let down. I walked in this place and asked the guy what kind of burrito he suggested, and went with the carne asada. I was not disappointed at all. Sure its a tad pricier then it would be in LA, but isn't everything here? I'll def go back now that I know its there.

I've lived in the EV for years but didn't work up the nerve to check this place out until last year. It looks a little, okay a lot divey, but the food is superb. I love the chicken mole and the shrimp tacos. They only deliver on weekends and even then it can be spotty. It's best to go in person.
