    I left with my tummy still hungry and about $7 less in my pocket. I'd rather buy a deli sandwich

    Why be a jerk?

    The tacos are too expensive but they are very tasty. Not authentic Mexican by any stretch of the imagination, and not nearly as good, dollar-for-dollar, than Pueblal or Downtown Bakery on 1st Ave. I'm used to rude service, having lived in NYC for years as well as notoriously rude Beijing, but it's just weird to eat or even take out here.

    exactly what it claims to be

    Delicious, fresh, healthy, reasonable, convenient, unpretentious, friendly and fun. Is exactly what it purports to be. Not for snobs; hence the few unfavorable reviews.

    Amazing drunk food, amazing sober food!

    After leaving no malice palace ironically annoyed, the snack dragon was a great pit stop while waiting for an open cab siting. So good, we went back this evening for seconds (and to determine if our drunken tastebuds were accurate). AMAZING - I would highly recommend ordering one of everything... You could literally order the whole menu for under $50. Only thing that could make this whole in the wall taco Mecca better is some cold brews...although not necessary if this is your late night post bar stop...open till 4am or later weekends!

    Big fan of the pork and carne asada tacos, plus the cool rock & roll vibe. I used to live right by and went all the time. Stopped in last night and it's just as good as I remember...

    I wonder who thought up this place

    The only way this could be considered "good Mexican food" is if you've never had good Mexican. Seriously. The "chorizo" is a spicy italian sausage that they slice on order. The asada is unremarkable. Then they top the whole thing with shredded white cheese and put it in a blue corn tortilla that instantly breaks apart. Maybe this is the good taco in Finland...

    nom nom

    Must have walked past here everyday with the dog who made me stop because of the lovely street-grill aroma before i actually sat down. Intimidating if you haven't tried it because it's literally a counter on the side of the street...like a taco shack at the beach. This is actually really refreshing though. It's almost impossible to come here and not at least smile and share small talk with the person sitting next to you and the whoever's making tacos behind the counter-but if you're not in the mood you can always take your taco elsewhere (ahem..reviewer below, don't be expecting someone breaking themselves to wait on you, its causal and real and some ppl have bad nights). And they are so good (the tacos), actually healthy (compared to what else is out there). And CHEAP! Amazing. So glad i live down the block. Watch out for the spiced coffee though, it's not for everyone.
