Have you been to Nixtamal lately?

I thought I'd start this because it doesn't get mentioned much lately and the last few things I read here were about how it wasn't as good.
Well, I went a couple of weeks ago and it was great!

They've really expanded the menu in addition to a change in decor. There are a lot more taco options now.

They had tiny crab tostadas as a special that were sweet, spicy, and refreshing. Really tasty!
The fish tacos are now made with skate, which I love. The fish was crisp, moist, and flavorful. The carnitas were fatty and crisp, and the skirt steak taco had nicely charred tender steak.
The only thing that wasn't quite as great, but still very tasty, was a chicken tostada, which needed a bit more salt and I thought could use a little less cheese.
