Lost in a small shop on 43rd is a wonderful taco place with the feel of a street cart. Outstanding taco with some serious heat! The place is very busy and as with everything in NYC the line moves FAST so be ready with you get to the front of the line! After ordering you move down the prep line to people actually putting together your order on the line. They ask you again, chicken or steak, or what ever and corn or flour and if you want guac, onions, cilantro, and salsa. (I swear I thought I went over that when we ordered at the cashier but you have to tell the guy on the line that again).It was a bit overwhelming especially with the language barrier but the food could not be fresher or more tasty. On the smaller side so if your hungry better order 2.

Honestly, the best tacos I've ever eaten. I had the horchata, tacos, and especial - all delicious! I would probably stick to just tacos next time because they were the best. Especial was good too, but tacos were better.

These are indeed great tacos. For me, the carne asadas are best, and then the adobadas. The meat was super fresh, guac on top, onions cilantro and salsa. Simple and delicious. We had about 4 each. The line moves fast but it was huge, it took a while to get them, and hard to find a spot to sit (this was @ the Chelsea market location) but if you like tacos this is a must.

Perfection. Few items on menu. Ordered Especial-like a fried taco, rich, mouth watering. Food comparable to Costa Rican food. Fresh! No tables, order eat leave. Reasonably priced too!
