El Paisa is just across the street from Grito, and the tacos here are just a little bit better. That said, this place is also smaller, more casual, and feels like a cross between a diner and a deli grocery. It also doesn’t have a bar, so it isn’t the best for a fun night out - but if you just want to pick up a quick torta, quesadilla, or a couple of tacos, this place is ideal. Try the chorizo, it’s excellent.
