tasty neighborhood spot 7/13/2010

I was looking for a casual place to eat alone and have some good food.Had a very nice meal here ...mole poblano and flan for dessert. The ladies who waited on me and work behind the counter were extremely nice. I had only the one dish...and felt well fed and relaxed when I left. Took a flan home which was delicious... I will definitely return and explore the menu further with friends. Pros: casual good food relaxed atmosphere Cons: none so far more

you for the food, not the decor 3/6/2009

I went with my boyfriend last night, and we both loved our meals. We tend to be picky about our Mexican food since we grew up in southern California and Texas, but we had the most delicious cheap meal: a strawberry ""milkshake"" (not like a diner milkshake, more like strawberry blended with cream, sugar, and some ice- mmm mmm good!), spicy pork soft tacos for me, and al pastor burrito for him. The only thing that disappointed was the guacamole- low on flavor. It was good on the taco, but not good enough to just be eaten with chips. If you get the guacamole and chips, definitely add some salt to help it along. The people we went with had a shrimp dish they really enjoyed. But if you're looking for a romantic setting, the decor is bare bones. Pros: great food, inexpensive, cozy (small) Cons: they close at 10pm more

Best Chile Relleno.....Giants! 6/3/2007

Have been a visitor to many states in Mexico....This place is comprable and even better than some places I have been to in Puebla.... Pros: excellent pleasant service together with delicious cannot go wrong more

It's all about the food - just as it should be 3/7/2007

Perfect soft tacos - at least 12 to choose from - I usually get the carnitas (fried pork) and carne asada (grilled steak) but the other ones are flavorful, too. They come with lots of guac, limes and radishes. Wash it down with a tamarind Jarritos. The bodega next door operates the take out contingent and is stocked with Mexican snacks. The burritos are also good (not heavy on the beans, a plus in my book) and huge. The mole is good. The fajitas are authentic, so don't be expecting a sizzling plate and a mariatchi band. Flan wraps up any meal nicely. Good neighborhood find more

There is no comparison 1/3/2007

I have lived around the corner from Tulcingo for going on four years now, and I get takeout from them at least twice a week. Every single time I have taken the first bite of whatever I've ordered, be it a standard chicken taco, a homemade tamale or my all-time favorite dish, carnitas with cactus in salsa verde, I've exclaimed aloud ""that is SO good."" I challenge anyone to get through a meal from this place without saying that. more

Best Mexican in NYC 12/6/2006

A best kept secret. This is the best Mexican food I've had anywhere, and the price is right. Pasole, tamales, and burritos couldn't be better. The sauces are second to none. Eat in or order out--they are fast with delivery. Pros: Great cheap Mexican food. Cons: Not a lot of atmosphere, and you may need to speak Spanish in order to order. more

Can't miss meals 11/28/2006

We eat here at least 3x a week! From tacos on the go to classic Mexican entrees - the house specials never fail to delight. The food is always fresh and full of flavor - I highly recommend the tacos and burritos, chicken pipian and mixed fajitas, chicken mole and tamales. It's impossible to go home hungry, the service is prompt and pleasant, and your money goes a long way - it's no surprise this restaurant is one of NY magazine's ""cheap eats"" highlights. more

Horrible 10/4/2006

It has overpriced mediocre food and rude service. I love Mexican food and live close by so I went here a few times before i discovered a much better and less expensive Mexican dive up the avenue at 695 10th btwn 47-48th called Tehuitzingo. That has much better food (fresh ingredients, flavorful spices), is cheaper and the people are nicer. Its a total cool find in the back of a bodega Cons: rude, overpriced, slow service more

Yummy - Best Authentic Mexican In New York City 7/27/2006

I am surprised that no one has reviewed Tulcingo Del Valle. It is really the best mexican here in new york. I spent a lot of time in Mexico on business and had a hard time eating Mexican food here in NYC because its all terrible. Until I was introduced to this place. Its Most authentic. Best tasting. Cheap. Very quick delivery. I found out about the place from a friend from Mexico City who loves this place - says when he's homesick he goes here for the pozole. Try the Cecina (salty beef) its a little like the sun dried beef in Monterrey, delicious. Great tortillas, pozole, tacos, etc. Pros: Great food, quick delivery, huge portions more

    The dining options this far west in Hell's Kitchen are so slim, it would be churlish to complain about the bare-bones look of this tiny taqueria. Fluorescent lighting, a...
