Like DVDs, tortillas are round, highly entertaining, and absolutely incomprehensible in their deliciousness. Savor the mysteries of the universe with today's Groupon: for $5, you get three tacos or three enchiladas at Oaxaca (up to a $12.75 value). Oaxaca's multiple locations, speedy service, and dedication to using organic and local ingredients whenever possible make it an example of a tacomongery par excellence. Furnish tortilla or taco interiors with a selection of carne asada, pollo guisado, carnitas, frijoles, shrimp, or fish, and grace the mouth's dance floor with garnishes such as pickled onion, cilantro, cheese, homemade salsa, and avocado, while enchiladas don a salsa, onion, sour cream, and guacamole ensemble.
- Overstuffed tacos—like the moist mahi-mahi or braised carnitas—come piled with more cilantro and peppy housemade salsas, while a flurry of cotija cheese tops slender enchiladas, filled with a choice of proteins (steak, shrimp, pork or chicken). – Time Out New York
- The tacos are to die for. You will not eat just one. Had the kimchee [sic] special, then went back for the potato special…Beautiful execution, presentation, and service! – B J., Yelp
Oaxaca Taqueria captures the essence of Mexico's street vendors with authentic Mexican food made fresh daily with local and environmentally sustainable ingredients. Their devotion to all-natural meats and crisp garden-grown veggies hasn't gone unnoticed. The New York Times, Time Out New York, and New York Magazine lavished praise upon the food at Oaxaca's four locations, causing the food to become as full of itself as the patrons who frequent the eatery. Known for their light tacos and enchiladas, Oaxaca's chefs stuff carne asada, stewed chicken, and frijoles onto or into corn tortillas for entrees. They grill their Mexican sandwiches, known as tortas, on talera bread, and they serve heaps of their three entrees with rice and beans when catering. Each location boasts a daily lunch special featuring one of their three mainstays, which guests can with one of their traditional beverages such as jarritos or horchata.
