Who says the only good place for Mexican food in the U.S. is California? That’s just not true anymore. You can find some killer Mexican dishes on the East Coast, too, especially in Brooklyn. Whether you’re looking for a fun atmosphere where you can sit down with friends and enjoy a few drinks or just looking to grab a delicious and cheap meal on the quick, here are some of the best places to stop for tacos in Brooklyn.
If you’re in the mood for breakfast tacos, Gueros is the place to go. Breakfast tacos are served anytime before 4 pm on the weekend so you can take your morning slow. The Migas taco with hot sauce is a local favorite and people also love the fried avocado and jalapeno taco if you’re looking for a vegetarian option. Plus they have outdoor seating and a great beer selection. You can find it in Crown Heights on Prospect Place at Franklin Avenue.
Los Hermanos is arguably the most authentic Mexican place in the city. It’s an actual tortilla factory and they make the most delicious homemade tortillas right there on site – you can even buy a stack to take home. It’s BYOB so grab a six pack and order one of the amazing tacos, such as the carnitas or chorizo, for only $2.50 each. Located in 271 Starr Street.
La Superior has been around for awhile and just continues to get more and more popular. It’s a tight space, sure, but if you don’t mind a crowd, duck in here for a cheap and delicious Mexican treat. The guava margaritas are a must as is the cochinita pibil taco with spicy shredded pork marinated in banana leaf. People also love to chips and guacamole and the chorizo taco. Located in Williamsburg on Berry between S. 2nd and S. 3rd Streets.
Located in Crown Heights at Franklin Ave and Sterling Place, CHavela’s is a great little haunt for a date or cozy night out with friends. It’s not that expensive and it has a very warm and chill ambience with a full bar and great selection of wines and beers. The fish taco and carnitas taco are two crowd-pleasers but people rave about everything on the menu. Sit up at the bar or grab a comfy table in the dining room and settle in for a great night.
