Get off the 6 Train at Castle Hill Avenue in the Bronx and you’ll be just a few blocks away from one of the better burritos in the city. Taqueria Tlaxcalli serves great Mexican food in a casual space with an open kitchen and a TV in the corner. We especially like the fish tacos (the fish is grilled, not fried) and the steak burrito (it’s the size of a kitten, and comes with tons of cheesy rice inside, plus colorful stripes of sauce on top). The space isn’t huge and it can get crowded, but you can always order to-go if you don’t want to sit down.

Tacombi @ Fonda Nolita
Tacombi has an awesome Mexican courtyard, and gets serious points for creativity. All in all, we back the place, especially now that they have a liquor license.
This is not a taqueria. This is a temple to the holy Mission burrito. Pray before it, lest you be forsaken.
Bar San Miguel
A Carroll Gardens Mexican bar and restaurant, owned by Jim Cramer from CNBC. Surprisingly, it is entirely devoid of yelling. It’s pretty damn good, too.

When a Mexican restaurant you love tells you to eat at another Mexican restaurant, you listen. That’s how we discovered Acapulco Deli, and you should discover it too.
