Foursquare Tips

  • If you choose to eat here, just half a block from a Chipotle, just know you're funding the opening salvo of a full scale burrito war that could have untold effects on NYC.
  • The brisket and pork are smoked for about 16 hours and both are very good. The chicken gets a quick turn in the smoker, too, making it sweet and juicy.
  • "There are THREE MEATS!" -Andrew W., translation expert
  • I tell dates to meet me here because even if I get stood up, there's still a burrito in it for me!
  • 1/2 brisket 1/2 chicken. You are welcome.
  • Get the squash and corn. $1 extra and worth every penny.
  • Get the brisket duh. But also get in a bowl. That way you can taste the meat individually. This place is light years better than chipotle and also better than dos toros. But the line moves way slow.
  • Brisket. Get the brisket. And the donut. Watch out, Chipotle.
  • Owner's Tip:1/2brisket,1/2 chicken burrito w/green rice,black beans, pico, guac, green & xxx hot sauce, lil' crema, lil' cheese,& squeeze a lime. Wash down w/dark & smoky michelada (spicy)
  • The specials are always worthwhile - recent items ranged from Antelope (!) to Lamb to Bison, which are a great answer to your coworker who wants to go to Chipotle.
  • Not a lot of space there, but the pitmaster from Salt Lick. nuff said.
  • The music in this place is guaranteed to make you smile.
  • Get the chicken, with some quac, the meat is smoked... So good!
  • If the redheaded guy is on meat it's not worth it. He gives weak portions.
  • "How do we convey 'Dos Torros' but better?" "I know, call it 'Tres Torros'." "Too obvious." "'Tres Carnes'?" "Perfect."
  • Never going to Chipotle again.
  • Absolute Dos Toros rip off. But they have brisket.
  • ~12$ lunch. Dine in possible but hard.
  • Come for the pork shoulder. Stay for the playlist.
  • These folks smoke their meats to perfection and add dynamite rice, beans & guac to create some of the best damn burritos on the Isle of Manhattan.
