  • A tortilla factory that makes masa from freshly Nixtamalized corn. Fresh tortillas, masa, and pozole available for takeout; good nachos and some decent tacos and tamales for dine-in.
  • Try Pepe's al pastor taco at this small caf, available Friday through Sunday only. It's one of NYC's 26 best tacos!
  • Definitely start off with the guacamole. The fish tacos are amazing. Check out the tortilla machine!
  • Try some tamales - apparently its the only place in NYC that makes fresh masa!
  • Try the chicken mole enchiladas, the fried skate tacos, or the never-dry tamales. Many Mexican food snobs say that this is the best taqueria in NYC. [Eater 38 Member]
  • dont get sucked in by the hype. food was OK...def not amazing as people claim. service was awful. dont believe everything food network tells you.
  • Nixtamal is not just a staff favorite, it's a staff essential! If you've ever had the pleasure of eating an amazing tamale at a Queens Museum opening, it is definitely from Nixtamal.
  • Worth the trip to Queens. Get the tamales while you're there, and bring back some tortillas so you can remember this place long after you've left.
  • Another great meal, skate tacos.
  • If you live in Manhattan or Brooklyn and take a cab/car service back from JFK, this is an easy stop along the way. Call ahead and it'll be ready when you get there.
  • Shrimp Tacos are phenomenal!!
  • One of the best moles in the city! The milanesa is excellent too.
  • Whatever you do, don't leave without trying their tacos al pastor: tender grilled rotisserie pork served alongside juicy pineapple & topped with cilantro and fresh onion. Match made in heave!
  • Great Tacos
  • The food was good, but not nearly as awesome as I was hoping. We each ordered three different tacos and were not wowed by any of them. Check out our review here:
  • Everything!
  • Guy liked the sweet and savory taco al pastor with pineapple, topped with white onion, cilantro and lime. The hearty pozole Guy found comforting and soothing.
  • Not really anything. Food is kind of bland/blah and lacking
  • This tortilleria makes its own soft-shell tacos, and ships them out around the city. Their tacos they deserve plenty of praise too. Of note: the juicy pastor taco, the bistek taco and cameron taco.
  • Tastiest shrimp tacos I've ever had, and the horchata was yummy, too!
