Looking for great Mexican at De Guerreros and El Paso Taqueria...what to order?

I'm making some roundups of great cheap Mexican places in the city. What are your favorite dishes at these places? Vegetarian options? Spiciest?

  1. I have never been to De Guerreros, but I have been to both branches of El Paso many times. The Lexington Avenue branch is the best Mexican I have had on the east coast. Enjoy.

    I personally love the tacos for the combination of deliciousness and value; at $3.50 or so, the Carne Enchilada, Al Pastor, and Chorizo tacos are phenomenal. I also highly recommend the guacamole, although the quality fluctuates depending on avocado season. I also have had excellend mole poblano there, but it seems to be more variable in quality from day to day. The tamales are consistently excellent.

    At the Lexington Avenue place, there is a longer selection of Sopes (not soups, little pupusas). Tasty stuff.
