Paco’s Tacos on East 51st Street makes perfectly good breakfast and lunch tacos, and perhaps most importantly, they do it quickly. The tacos, on half flour/half corn tortillas, can be on the pricier side, but the dirt cheap margaritas and draft beer more than make up for it. On weekends the Bloody Marys and mimosas clock in under $5, and you can even get pitchers. While there’s minimal indoor seating, there’s an expansive and funky patio, some of which is even covered. Stumble in, order some tacos, hit the salsa bar with feeling (there are five kinds), and take your bounty outside. Just avoid the hungry grackles.
