The food is ok: the pork taco was flavorful, the chicken was bland and unremarkable. The Yucca fries are unique and worth trying once for sure. But the restaurant (if you can even call it that) is not great to eat in! It's a very tiny hole in the wall with wooden benches and tables barely big enough for your food. They pump the music up so loud that the person at the counter can't even hear what you are ordering. There is no AC at all, so unless you like to sweat profusely (while straining to hear your dining companion over the blasting music) get take out or better yet, eat someplace else!

I loved both shrimp and fish tacos. However, the shrimp had an edge and won out. The crispyness of the shrimp just added more to the taco. Great flavor, fresh ingredients, great prices. I love it!

Mexican restaurants pretty much suck in Manhattan, but this place is about as close as you're going to get to real home cooking. Not to say that this place is great, but compared to the expensive faux Mexican places out there, this is more authentic.

Today I ordered lunch, two chicken taco's and one beef taco, and they took over one hour to deliver to a location just two blocks away. When the food arrived, it was cold and soggy. Had I not been so hungry, I would have rejected it. In the end, I ate a few bites and threw it away. I've never been inspired to write a negative comment until now because hey, it's New York, "stuff" happens. But this was not good at all, and I felt the need to warn those who crave a good taco.

Only in Mexico and in Southern California have I experienced authentic tacos until now. Pinche is the real deal. By far the most authentic and tasty tacos I have ever had on the East Coast. The owner Jeff is friendly and obsessive with his love for Pinche and its healthy (and Cheap) eats. I have observed a cult like following from both those who have experienced real Tacos south of the border and those who have experienced it here at Pinche. In my view the only challenge that Pinche faces is it's small dining room. As word begins to spread it will only be a matter of time before there are lines outside the block.

If you've been to one of those amazing taquerias in Mexico or Baja, then you know how amazing real tacos can be. New Yorkers have not seen the likes of tacos like this before. This place is the real deal. And yes, tacos are small and on soft steamy corn tortillas. The fish tacos here are almost always made from fresh line caught mahi mahi - lightly fried with finely shredded cabbage, a little white sauce, dab of intensely flavorful guacamole and a touch of chopped onion. Also tried the grilled pork tacos. It's a small place, but the tacos are eaten fast. The Tortas sandwiches here are also amazing - maybe big enough to share. But the tacos are the real star. You won't find a more authentic taco anywhere except south of our border.

For some reason there are a lack of take out tex-mex style places in SoHo. Which is why I was glad to find this place recently. The food is pretty decent and I'd put it in the same class as Paquito's or San Loco for takeout.
