Hands down. But, it goes further. The guacamole is perfect, great acid balance and not tarted up, simple and perfect. For non-taco options, all the usual suspect proteins are well represented and delicious; the cooking is serious, but it doesn't take itself too seriously. The tacos themselves are far more interesting that 99% of the other options in the City, both in planning and execution. Wash all this down with one of the many tasty cocktails; I recommend the obvious, maragitas. Have some fun and go a bit off menu and ask for the basic margarita with a different tequila each round, they are well made and it will give you the chance to discover why we need so many tequilas! My only real complaint? The acoustics are a bit loud....
Cheap eats to fine dining and everything in between
Just when I thought I had tried all the best tacos in the city! This place sounds awesome, and love that its out in LIC where I've been venturing more recently. Thanks for the rec Scott!

I'd probably come out here for the guacamole alone if its really good.
Debbie, the guac is amazing. I should have mentioned that Casa Enrique has a Michelin star....

I had myself a little break up party with all the Mexican treats of my former home town of Venice, CA before moving to the city 5 months ago. In Dogtown, taco stands riddle the streets with their cheap deliciousness. At said fatty party (number in attendance, 1) I ate all the ceviche tostadas, the Buche (hard seared pig stomach, way better than it sounds) and the Fish Tacos, the Mexican Camarones Coqutailes with ketchup and Tapatio (Shrimp Cocktail for you "Gringos" out there). All of it. Just kissed them all goodbye.
...And then I met Chilo's in my neighborhood. Chilo's is not only a cool, dive-ish bar, but they have a TACO TRUCK (be still my beating heart) IN THE BACKYARD. They have a great avocado tostada for the vegetarians and a great smoked pork taco. They also have great specials so be sure to try those! My last venture down that rabbit hole was a Rajas (roasted poblano pepper) taco and a really cool mushroom (variety unknown to me) taco. Super yummy salsas and garnish bar too. And in good form-- cheap.

The only people I trust when it comes to tacos in NYC are the LA taco snobs :)
I spend a disproportionate amount of my income of food
Sweet find, might be worth the trip out to BK!
