Because on this day of celebration, we’ve gathered information from the experts: SeamlessWeb staff. As professional online food orderers we have scoured far and wide for the best Mexican food in NYC. Here’s what we found:
Clinton Hill: “I really love the Pulled Pork Tacos from Alcatraz Mexican. They are flavorful, moist and just overall delicious. You can’t go wrong with those and a side of guac and chips!” – Elliott B.
Upper East Side: “Cascabel Taqueria was an extremely welcome addition to the Upper East Side Mexican food scene. I love to order tacos when I visit my parents uptown, and I usually try to make someone in the family split with me so I can sample a couple. My faves are the Carne Asada for a classic flavor and the Lengua for some spice.” – Rich B.
Midtown East: “Lo Carb Burrito from Oaxaca Mexican Grill. Boom. I leave out the tortilla, sour cream, and cheese to save calories. Great tasting Mexican food with no guilt. It’s fulfilling and has a delicious combination of flavor. Ingredients are very fresh, no delivery min (++) and quick delivery time. Can’t beat that.” – Katelyn B.
NoLita: “I love the quesadillas at Cafe El Portal. They have some pretty inventive (to me at least) ingredients like cactus and pumpkin flower! But when I’m craving some delicious Mexican, especially on a night like Cinco de Mayo, I’ve got to have the Cecina Quesadilla with steak and cheese! Yumm-o to say the least.” – Jessie G.
East Village: “Shrimp tacos from El Camion Cantina. They’re extremely fresh and yummy and taste just as good delivered as they do sitting in the restaurant with a margarita to accompany them.” – Sam L.
