SF Weekly's Description

Scenesters crowd into Nick's Crispy Tacos for the potent margaritas, the gaudy-bordello decor, the DJ-driven Polk Gulch zeitgeist, and the tasty, well-stuffed seafood, carnitas, and pollo asado tacos. The ecumenical Mexican menu also offers nachos, quesadillas, burritos, jalapeño poppers, tortilla soup, and skewered corn on the cob, but the pescado taco (grilled whitefish with salsa, cilantro, cabbage, onion, and lime mayo in a corn tortilla) is eternally popular. Adjacent to Rouge nightclub, the place shares Harry Denton's proclivity for blood-red walls, velvet drapes, and crystal-dripping chandeliers, but sombreros, piñatas, and patio furniture add a bit of verisimilitude.
