Tacos & Burritos in Gramarcy area?

hotel Oct 7, 2008 08:48 AM

I am looking for a taco joint in the area of 3rd and 21st. It doesn't need to be classy or anything, just some place with decent tacos... walkable from above address would be ideal.

    22nd and 1st

    Mexico Lindo
    459 2nd Ave | At 26th St

    Rodeo Bar
    375 3rd Ave | At 27th St

    There's also a new taco joint, i believe, across from Vamos...1st avenue between 22nd and 21st....Used to be Burger King....cant remember the name though.

      If it's for takeout, you could also try the new weekday lunch truck at 25th and Park Avenue. The Calexico truck. They also have a Soho truck. Burritos only, though.

        kathryn- do you have any sort of idea about the reliability of the Calexico cart? I tried to find them a couple of times in the past week but they weren't there (around noon).

          " Our cart at 25th and Park is temporarily out of commission due to an equipment failure. It's in the shop right now - we hope to have it back on the street by the end of the week. Sorry for any inconvenience!

          CALEXICO on October 1, 2008"

            D'oh! I should've checked the website first. Good for them- keeping it up to date, that's good to know. And thanks for the quick reply.

              Just saw them -- they're back. Gosh, they really need a webcam!

          24th & 3rd, ziggyz makes a mean burrito. sometimes you need to make sure the inside is hot ( i used to throw it in my microwave for a few seconds) but they are amazing.

            Okay, so search has now been refined, hole in the wall is good, but we need a few tables for boozing purposes.

            Dos Caminos is on 27th and Park. Good tacos, burritos, tableside guac and margaritas. Mi Cocina is close by as well.

              I highly recommend los dos molinos on 18th between park ave south and irving. They do excellent mexican & southwestern food - and have excellent margaritas.
