Hands-down, favorite Mexican restaurant in the city. The food is super affordable and filling. I thought I would need more than two tacos but as a big eater, the two tacos were stuffed with meat to oblivion! I also loved their nachos. Make sure to get in a little early to enjoy the happy hour specials but the food was super good.

This is a fun little Mexican spot not too far from Union Square in Manhattan that offers well executed, authentic dishes and a great, take-what-you-want chips, house made chips and salsa station.  I've been here about 2-3 times in the last year or so and have tried the tostada, chilaquiles and fajitas.  Everything was fresh and flavorful and there were tons of vegetarian options.  The service was good and the prices were extremely affordable.  This will likely remain on the rotation of favorite restaurants for quite some time!
