  • Do yourself a favor and eat one of each taco. You'll be fat, but you'll be very, very happy. Shrimp and bee tripe is one of the eat thugs now ever put in my mouth. I'm in love
  • A unique take on Mexican cuisine here, with a menu that includes ceviches, tacos, and large plates to share. Diners have praised the eggs with urchin, the wings, the scallop and beef heart ceviche.
  • Get. The. Chicken. Wings.
  • Best thing about this place: friendly Australian hostess
  • Lamb taco. More lamb, less taco, crazy juicy.
  • The micheladas are very spicy - the spiciest I've had anywhere.
  • Danny Bowien's first foray into Mexican isn't as successful as his Chinese restaurants, but it's affordable and solid by New York standards.
  • Get the wings. And a michelada. Nom.
  • Dat alambres taco
  • Here for breakfast? Get the duck porridge with a Vietnamese coffee. Say what's up to the long haired moustachioed dude in the kitchen, he dreamed up what you're eating.
  • Hipster bait trend hole
  • I'm a huge lengua fan and I got to say this place doesn't dissappoint. Word to the wise though, bring money. Lots. Especially if you want to experience a variety of tacos they have to offer.
  • Tried 6 different kinds of tacos (yes we were hungry)-loved the pastor and brisket tacos. Also good were the skate wing and pork cheek. Great waitress = Se Young
  • Cannot get enough of the amazing and unique tacos served here - our favorites being the lamb, carnitas, and pumpkin. Don't pass on the whole rotisserie chicken though!
  • The Green Chile Cheeseburger is a must
  • The Chinese burrito hype is real. Get it, no regrets.
  • Creamed spinach taco, jalapeo taco - excellent choices
  • Burritos stuffed with guac and french fries? Yes, your 2am dreams can come true.
  • The fish tacos were delicious, but the service was hideous. 4 tables left during our 45-min dinner, due to neglectful staff.
  • Quite frankly the closest burritos to SF I've had out here. Hooked.
