La Lupe is an excellent counter-service lunch and dinner option in Bushwick by the Myrtle Ave JMZ. Not only does La Lupe make some of the best tacos in Bushwick, it has one of the better spaces to sit down and enjoy them. You can also get non-taco things here like elote, burritos, and tostadas, and they have a Happy Hour from 3-7pm every weekday with $3 shots and $5 margaritas, and enough table space to fit a few medium-sized groups.
