El Taco Veloz | Ukrainian Village/East Village | Mexican/Southwestern | Restaurant
Rollicking late-night spot specializing in gorditas and carne en se jugo as well as more standard Mexican fare.

Our Review

This rollicking late-night spot has an extensive menu offering tacos, burritos, huaraches, and gorditas, but it's best known for the Jaliscan dish carne en su jugo, "meat in its own juices," a comforting bowl of stewed beef, bacon, beans, avocado, onion, and radishes. Posole and menudo are available only on weekends, but you'll find other specialties like cecina and barbacoa seven days a week. On Fridays there's Mexican karaoke, and on Saturdays a Mexican Elvis impersonator has been known to perform.
