Lupe’s serves California-style Mexican food, which means burritos, enchiladas, and taquitos. It isn’t the fanciest place, and it isn’t really the best Mexican food in the city - but it’s affordable, and you definitely like taquitos. This place is on the southwest end of Soho, and it feels sort of like a fun diner. Have a weeknight dinner here, or bring a few friends on a weekend when all you want is margaritas and things wrapped in tortillas.

Empellon Al Pastor
New York City will never be LA, Austin, San Diego, or Mexico, but we suddenly have some quality taco options to choose form. Add Empellón Al Pastor to that list.
As we’re all well aware, Mexican food in Manhattan generally blows. Empellon hasn’t come to save the day, but it isn’t adding to the problem either. While nothing blew us away, the food was solid with the good outweighing the bad.
