I'm from San Diego, CA where we have great mexican food so I wasn't expecting to be completely satisfied, but the food was absolutely delicious. I wish I had one of these restaurants near me to help with my cravings!

I couldn't live without Taqueria y Fonda.

Best damn deal in Morningside Heights...the tacos (esp. carnitas y suadero) are a STEAL. Two and you're set. The staff are great, the digs are endearingly cramped, the negra modelo is cold and the price is right. Homemade corn tortillas and three real salsas are a plus. Don't be fooled by those who don't "get it"--Tacqueria is REAL southwestern-style Mexican food. As a result, the main dishes are unusual and delicious: rich mole, excellent enchilladas, and a brilliant pollo con chipotle--smoky, spicy and amazingly tender. And for the record, the cheese is queso blanco--no processed monterey jack in this joint.

I ordered take-out from this place with some friends, and although the food arrived within 30 minutes, it was NOT what we expected at all. The vegetarian quesadillas were thin, soggy tortillas with a few pieces of spinach and then the rest was just lettuce and a sprinkling of cheese....hardly what I would call a quality quesadilla. One of my friends had the giant chicken burrito and said the chicken wasn't cooked properly, and it did not taste good.

Really awesome food for a great price. I usually get the giant burrito - which is extremely big - or the stuffed pepper with banana, cream, and nuts. Delicious. The just-made warm tortilla chips are a plus too!

The carnitas tacos are the best. Authentic Mexican food at authentic Mexican prices. Friendly, family-owned and cheap. Me gusta. Si, me gusta mucho.

I've never bought anything except a la carte items here, because why pay even $8 for an entree when a big, fresh $2.50 taco (supplemented with those free tortilla chips and green salsa) is more than filling? Everything I've tried at Tacqueria is really fresh, cooked simply enough to let the quality of the ingredients shine. Highly recommended are the salmon tacos; I'm impressed that they pull them off given that I don't think fish tacos are an East Coast thing, but the salmon is fresh, mild, and perfectly cooked. All tacos are great, actually, thanks to their sauteed onions, tomatoes, fresh cilantro, and excellent corn tortillas. The pork tamales are a standby for me, and I recommend the veggie burrito to vegetarians. I'm less than thrilled with their rice, which can be sort of dry, but it's decent. The atmosphere of the tiny space is hectic and cramped but really fun, especially with the jukebox. The only downside is that the place has really caught on with Columbia kids, and there can be a wait for a table. Otherwise, this place is fantastic -- and it's open til 1am, too.
