Village Voice's Description

This small joint is a brick-and-mortar outpost of a popular, Vendy-award-winning taco/burrito truck in Soho and is mainly populated with hipsters chugging Jarritos. There are a few tables, and a window to order from whether you're eating in or taking away. Basically, you‚ve got five filling options: pulled pork, carne asada, pollo asado, tofu, or beans, which you can choose to have in a taco, burrito, torta, or quesadilla. Then there's a salad, grits with tofu or pork, and sides of guacamole and salsa. As California-style Mexican, Calexico gets a lot right. The pulled pork with pickled red onions, salsa, and crema makes for an appetizing combination of rich and piquant. Carne asada is smoky and bovine.

Tips from foursquare

    Top billing goes to the carne asada. With flavor so intense, it‘s hard to justify ordering anything else. That said, the pulled pork and pollo asado (grilled chicken) are also excellent.

  • Bloomingdale's on 08/12/10

    Supplying SoHo with South-of-the-Border delicacies every weekday. Swing by early, since many of the specialties – particularly the namesake skirt steak – sell out faster than you can say Ixtapaluca.

    bring cash!

    one of the best mexican restaurants in the city. The taco are phenomenal and the watermelon juice is really refresing.
