Best Tacos in Park Slope

Does anyone know of a great place to get authentic tacos in the slope? I usually head to Sunset Park to get my fix, but I'm wondering if anyone knows anywhere closer to my apartment for when I don't feel like making the trek.
Of the authentic spots, my favorite is Nuevo Mexico on 5th Ave (near 12th St.). The clientele is mostly Spanish-speaking, and it's one of the busier authentic Mexican joints in the South Slope. Most of what I've tried there has been very tasty. If I'm not mistaken, I think they may have a branch in Sunset Park, as well.
Although it's Cal-Mex, I also like Clemens on PPW (near Prospect Ave--technically more Windsor Terrace, but close enough). Their pork tacos (the home-style braised one, not the grilled version) is quite tasty. Further west in Park Slope South, there's an old-school Tex-Mex place called El Rincon Familiar on 5th Ave (between 18th & 19th Sts.) that's very good.
for the slope I like La Taqueria and used to go to Nuevo Mexico when I lived in South Slope. As for Sunset Park, if you don't have a car and don't feel like taking multiple subways it is a bit out of the way. Chavella's isn't bad either in Prospect Heights.
