Needed: good Mexican delivery in Greenwich Village

BLover33 Feb 2, 2012 04:04 PM

Anyone have any rec's for good Mexican food that delivers in the village? Open to other types of food (other than Chinese) too just looking to update my delivery options. I'm have to give Westville and Dirty Bird a break.

    We like the Mexican food at La Camelia on Downing Street a lot. We eat it there, haven't tried delivery but I assume that they do.

      Chiles and Chocolate in Chelsea deliver to GV and do some things very well (i.e. mole negro).

      Coppelia is more Cuban / pan-Latin American than Mexican, but they do a great, greasy arepa, good lomo saltado and a very unhealthy, very delicious yuca rellena.

        I should update this. Chiles and Chocolate in Chelsea has closed, sadly.

        I've also tried Oaxaca Taqueria by delivery and think it's not bad, though some portions seem to be small (i.e. the burritos, which are Mission style with rice, but much smaller than any you'd find in the Mission). Tacos are nicely stuffed with flavorful fillings. Delivery in my experience has been super speedy and friendly.

        Anyone know how the tacos are at Dos Toros?

          Love Dos Toros. It's the best Mexican (tacos and burritos, anyway—still hoping for some good enchiladas somewhere) that this former Texan has had in lower Manhattan. They do deliver, $15 min.

              Thanks, Lora! I'm getting these next time we order delivery.

              Re: Good enchiladas, what do you look for? I am no enchilada expert, but Burrito Loco's have been enjoyable to me in the past. I believe they soften their corn tortillas in oil prior to baking and then have a short baking period, so the tortillas still have some texture. The ones I've tried have not been all gunked up with cheese, which I like.

          how bout mole on jane street?

          also just tried the new branch of oaxaca taqueria that opened on greenwich ave. pretty good! i had take-out but they deliver too.

          rocking horse cafe in chelsea is not bad, but more expensive and kind of "fancier" style food.

          dorado tacos on 12th street? the tacos are pretty ok. not sure if they deliver though.

          dos toros for burritos? just ok but i think they deliver too.

            Mexicana Mama on Hudson St delivers.
            I also just tried the new Oaxaca Taqueria that opened on Greenwich Ave. - I liked it. They deliver.
