E.19th and Cortelyou Road - Mex Deli - Decent tacos

I had the Al Pastor, Bistec, and Barbacoa. Less than 10 bucks (prolly less than 8)

I wouldn't have mentioned this neighborhood spot, but the Al Pastor had slivers of pineapple in it, which to me is a pretty interesting twist. Back in Austin/Houston, you might see the pineapple on top of the spit/vertical rotisserie, but the pina taste was always faint. The other two were good. All were served with a salsa verde, 2 lime quarters and a helping of sliced radih.

They also had Santa Muerte and Virgen de Guadalupe statues, Mexican Coke, fresh nopales, fresh serranos, fresh tomatillos, dried chiles and lots of the Mexican Standards.

If you're in the area, definitely check them out.
