Fodor's Review

Offshoots of a popular Tijuana taco shop established in 1973 and still going strong, these slim taquerías (the word "pinche" can be translated as "tiny") do fish tacos the West Coast way, with lightly battered fish, crunchy cabbage, and a dollop of cilantro crema. The tacos al pastor—filled with succulent pork slow-roasted on a rotating spit, are of a similarly superior caliber, stuffed into warm, house-made corn tortillas and generously anointed with fresh guacamole. There's another location just around the corner at 227 Mott Street (near Prince) and at 103 West 14th Street; all these spots get busy at prime meal times.
