Matamoros Puebla on Bedford -- not so good?

Perhaps as an ex-Californian, I get a bit snooty about my tacos. But I've been to Matamoros several times now and find the tacos particularly bland -- the pollo, the el pastor and the carnitas and I get so sad and disappointed. However, I have scouted out a bodega similar to Matamoros in north Greenpoint on Manhattan called El Encanto Mexicano. They are almost everything I want in a taco -- juicy, flavorful and spicy. It's a hidden gem though, I have yet to really see anyone else in the shop.
