Delicious tacos at 23rd and 6th

Hi all,
Some time ago, I read a mention on this site about a pizza/taco place on 23rd St. three doors west of 6th avenue. I just finished my third taco from them, and feel compelled to post praise.

It's an odd little place, with the dubious combo of pizza and mexican food, but the smell on entering promises good eats. The mexican part of the menu has tacos, enchilada plates, and a small selection of tortas. I've only made it as far as the tacos. Carne asada and pollo asada both tender and smoky, with very fresh pico de gallo, and fresh cilantro, in corn tortillas. Simple and good. And -- this is what totally charmed me -- each $2 taco to go comes with a little quarter of lime wedged into the top, just under the tin foil.

Not a destination by any means, but a delicious pit-stop featuring food made with care in the otherwise barren neighborhood.
