Being from Southern California, I like to consider myself a bit of an expert on Mexican food. Pretty good! Tacos great, burritos big, and hot salsa! I'll be back. Just leave the strollers at home.

burritos have waaaaay too much raw onion. no sour cream. or salsa. those are like $2 extra. not ok. also, the horchata used to be good when they first opened, now not so good. fix the horchata please!!

This place is great, the food is great, and the staff is nice. I always have trouble deciding what to get here - a big Al Pastor burrito is awesome and a good value, but sometimes I go for the fish tacos, which are absolutely bangin'. Caution - this place gets kinda crazy at lunch when half of Soho tries to go there at the same time, but the staff does a good job of getting people their food in a hurry. If you go around 2 or for dinner, it usually fine. PS. I almost didn't write this review, cause lord knows this place doesn't need to get anymore popular, but Pinche is always so good to me, I felt like I owed it to them...

If the name of a place has any meaning, Pinche Taqueria certainly lives up to theirs. A quaint, vibrant restaurant that always has local business. Good for eating in or out, although sometimes the lunch rush can make a small place like this crowded. While the staff will gladly recommend their Taco Pescado or Al Pastor as a popular choice, they also have a delicious assortment of meat, seafood, and vegetarian choices (the veggie burrito is one of the best I've ever had and consistently good every time). Delicious food, for a reasonable price, right in the center of a great neighborhood for walking around afterwards.

I agree that ordering delivery is not the best idea, but if its only a couple blocks from you, call ahead and when you get there it will be hot and waiting. They give a lot of food for not a lot of money and there salsas are tasty, the red one being spicy, sometimes too spicy. For the money and convenience this place is great considering that if you want a burrito that size for that price it won't happen pretty much anywhere in the city.

I really love what this place comes nearer to accomplishing than all but a select few in Manhattan: the truly affordable and authentic mexican where you can eat an entire meal that is completely satisfying. Let's focus on the food. The menu is great. Stick this place in San Diego and it would do some business, but there are some problems. I love that they give you Al Pastor off the spit. I love that the Carne Asada is a fatty and inexpensive cut. I love that they have hot hot sauce and give you ample onions and cilantro and you can get good mexican rice and refried beans. The components are right the balance is wrong. The problem is that it's in excess. A burrito with that many onions should have guac or sour cream, or more beans to counter the intense seasoning on the meats, and on and on. You eat an entire meal and come away feeling like your intestines are about to explode and the good things were overwhelmed by the intensity of the sauce, onions, seasonings etc. It's like the Batman sequel: great plot line, great cast of characters, and each individual scene is good, but taken as a whole the amount of action sequences is dizzying and you leave ever so slightly dissatisfied. But it's still among the most riveting movies I've seen recently. Pinche is a caricature of authenticity, each feature is authentic, but the best authentic Mexican restaurants don't overwhelm over an entire meal, you get a break here and there. I only come here for a snack because if I come hungry my stomach and esophagus wish they had enjoyed a modest pb&j instead. If I was only going to eat one taco, few options in NYC compare, but if I'm hungry there are a handful of other cheap mexican restaurants where an entire meal is more satisfying.
