Finally a place which serves tacos that are great quality, lots of meat, and not overly greasy! I just happened to be visiting someone who lived nearby and saw the great reviews so I stopped in. We moved from the Midwest where Mexican food is aplenty, and this really hit the spot. And, for $3 a taco, about what you... More

Very good food and value. I had he most expensive thing on the menu; enchiladas for $12. They were superb and came w/ a few slices of avocado. Where can you get food this good in New York for such a price? Not a restaurant experience. Counter seating. Good if you're on the go and don't want to spend much

Decent Mexican food. Good sandwiches. Tacos are average, but the meat is a little dry. Portions are great. Delivery and order online options available.

Great food and atmosphere. Salsa nice and zingy. Would recommend it definitely. Cheap too, in all came to about 20 dollars with two beers, and we didn't feel hungry afterwards.

This tiny place has delicious guacamole, mouth watering mole, and kind and welcoming service. They also have tasty chicken tacos and great prices.

Tried this place hoping for a great new place to frequent and to start they got my order wrong... Tortillas were stale and meat was unseasoned and inedible. Salsas had to have been from a jar. Must have gone on a BAD day!

I have been frequenting Tehuitzingo for more than a decade, since it was still a modest bodega with a tiny kitchen in the back. I used to live around the corner and I would stop by for take out at least a couple of times a month. They've done away with most of the bodega in the front, expanded the... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
