TACO LOCO!!!! ME GUSTA!!!!!!!!!! – San loco has the best tacos!! The chicken taco loco is amazing. Geniusly has a hard shell AND a soft shell. DANG SON! THAT'S SMART!
Bad taste – We went there as a group but not a good choice...I had chicken taco,, It was half burning warm-hot and half cold...when I asked them..."oh. Microwave"..
For others also not too good
Hope they do something about it..They were clean and freindly
so good, so cheap – this place is DELICIOUS and very well priced. ive got food to go on monday night and it was fresh and perfect portions. ordered a chicken burrito and vege chili - they threw in a giant bag of tortilla chips with my order. made it in about 5 minutes too which was nice not to have to wait. a few people were eating there, though i have yet to eat there and take home instead. definitely a nice alternative to the giant benny burriots up the block and the chain chipotle around the corner - nothing beats an authentic burrito.
Aww...New Yorkers Try So Hard – NY is the greatest food city, just not for Mexican. Take it from a SoCal boy: Do not accept ground beef in your tacos; it should be shredded. Also, do not beg for salsa like it is pure gold (as in San Loco), it should be offered in large bowls for you to spoon on your food at will. Uh, also have some basic flavor to your meats. San Diego Carne Asada...I miss you.
Downtown mini-chain serves up inexpensive, made-from-scratch Mexican on the quick. – In Short
This Mexican joint's three red-roomed locations keep their kitchens cooking from lunch until the witching hours, churning out a homemade menu for Eastsiders on the go and tipsy revelers looking to nosh late-night. Staples are available every which way--tacos hard and soft, wrapped in tortillas stuffed with guacamole, cheese or black beans; burritos of beef, breaded catfish, pork pipian and chipotle chicken; plus a choice of four sauces from mild to just plain "stupid."
The food is good at this place – It's pretty small here, but the weekend crowds will attest to the tastiness of the food. If you can, try to go during off hours, but if you find yourself standing in line on a busy weekend, you can get your tacos to go, and eat across the street in Tompkin's Square Park. They also deliver late into the night, to your house or local bar...
Passing... barely – San Loco really is nothing more than a Taco Bell with a little class. The soft shell chicken taco is alright, but nobody would go here for serious Mexican food.
salivating thinking of fish tacos... – Used to live in NY and eat at San Loco often. Haven't lived there in over a decade but I always manage to pop in for a Burrito Loco (good for avoiding morning-after hangovers) or a fish taco whenever I am in town. Great food...super fast service....and most importantly....CHEAP!
You call that Mexican food? – The only thing San Loco has going for it is that it's open late. The food resembles Taco Bell, only with slightly fresher ingredients.
Reliably, consistenly good – The chipotle chicken guaco locos are heaven-sent. Anything else.... good too. Highly recommended, even at the ungodly hours when one is lucky to find a pizza place open.
