Loading Dock taco place in downtown Brooklyn

Anyone looking for lunch spots in downtown Brooklyn (lambretta?) may want to check out the Loading Dock. It's a glorified taco truck/stand in a funky loading dock-turned-art-gallery place. The food is very fresh, authentic and flavorful. The prices are definitely too high for this kind of food: $4-5 per taco (as opposed to $2.00 -$2.50 at Fast & Fresh!), $5 per tamale, rice and beans $4. BUT if you're willing to pay more to have space and tables, plus artsy hipness, it may be worthwhile. I go there sometimes for a change of pace, or when it's too cold to sit in Fast & Fresh's yard, or when I don't have time to walk down to Oaxaca on Smith St....
The Loading Dock is at 170 Tillary Street, near the fire station and the 278 on-ramp. 5 - 10 minutes walk from MetroTech/downtown.

  1. They get their tortillas from Nixtamal, one of the few places that has their menus on the table when walk in there.
