“The restaurant is cozy and quaint: decorated with authentically Mexican ornaments (brightly colored walls and with posters of hot chilies).”
“The margaritas are excellent (on the rocks, with or without salt - $8) and they serve them in wine glasses with a straw.”
“The taco meat is amazing!”
“Their food actually taste mexican and not tex-mex, salsa is spicy and they have a great real mexican dishes menu.”
“Come on people, its not that difficult to chop up tomatoes or tomatillos, onion, cilantro and jalapenos, & its not that time consuming to fry up a new batch of chips once an hour (No-one needs a huge box with more than a days worth of chips.”
“the person will come right to your table and you watch him peel avacado and mash it , and squeeze fresh lime juice, with all the other ingredients, its something worth checking out.”
“bit more upscale Mexican, slow service, fun atmosphere”
Best Fish Tacos in the city. The food is outstanding. While this place is a hole in the wall, the ambiance isn't terrible. It is decidedly Mexican. The fish tacos are highly recommended if you like California style. The brunch is also very good. I would avoid the bathrooms as they aren't the cleanest.
Avoid at all costs !!!. I went to Taco Taco for lunch today--whatta rip-off ! The meal cost over $20.00 including tip on a weekday, which would be fine if you were at a fancy place, but it is a little "hole in the wall". I had enchiladas and a margarita, both were awful. The enchiladas had no flavor at all, were certainly PACKED with calories (cost: $9). It was a big plate, I'll say that. The margarita ($8) was the worst I have ever had. It was watery and strange. The food did not sit well either. Avoid this place at all costs.
Delish and Reliable. What a reliable neighborhood Mexican restaurant! If you're dining in, the tiny lit room is endearingly cheesy but festive. The freshly made guacamole is fabulous. Portions are big (the sandwiches are super yummy) and the sangria is above average. Recently, my roomies and I began ordering take-out from Taco Taco and were VERY pleased with our delivery. Note: they only take cash!
SOME OF THE BEST TASTING TACOS EVER!!. I had been to TACO TACO before but didnt' get the Tacos. But this past sunday I did. I felt sorta silly ordering the "Tacos de Americano", but if you truly crave the taste of the best taco you've had get em. I mean most people have never had a really tasty taco other than (taco bell or a cafeteria). The taco meat is amazing!!! OH and they will always ask if you would like to start with some fresh table made guacamole. GET IT. the person will come right to your table and you watch him peel avacado and mash it , and squeeze fresh lime juice, with all the other ingredients, its something worth checking out. They got good Sangria and they do an assortment of frozen magaritas (different flavors)
Finally mexican that is actually spicy..
As a 10 year NYer who grew up in Mexico City I was elated to have found Taco Taco.
Their food actually taste mexican and not tex-mex, salsa is spicy and they have a great real mexican dishes menu.
For dinner I recommend Carne Tampiqueña (steak)
And for brunch the Huaraches with meat and a couple eggs on top, a typical mexican hangover plate! With a Negra Modelo (hold the lime! mexicans don't drink every beer with lime, only Tecate, not even Corona)
I can't imagine getting some drinks there cause the bathroom is down a very steep stairway!!!
And for families they have high chairs and waiters were really nice to my kid.
Overall nice experience.
Cheap & Cheerful Authentic Mexican. Taco Taco is the place to bring a friend or two for margaritas and cheap, fresh mexican ... it would be so easy to walk by this hole-in-the-wall, but you'd be missing out on some truly authentic, fresh Mex. It's called Taco Taco for a reason - try them! Also recommend the sopes, empanadas, black bean soup (very filling, watch out) and the tortas (perfect greasy hangover food). Brunch is fantastic, as well ... you're not coming here for atmosphere or great service - just delicious Mex on the cheap!
Festive. Having recently moved to NYC from Texas, I am always on the hunt for good tex mex. Although this place looks as if they are in constant celebration of Cinqo de Mayo, the food is surprisingly good and fresh. Unfortunately they do not have chile con queso and their salsa bowls are teeny tiny but overall this is a decent place in the upper east.
