The Little Taco House is tiny counter-service spot on a quiet stretch of West 4th Street filled with mostly expensive townhouses and Golden Globe nominees walking their dogs. There isn’t much room to sit, but it’s a great option for some quick takeout. We like the tacos just fine - just know that the burritos and tortas are the best things here. Get either with chorizo or carnitas, and you have yourself a very good hand-held meal.

As we’re all well aware, Mexican food in Manhattan generally blows. Empellon hasn’t come to save the day, but it isn’t adding to the problem either. While nothing blew us away, the food was solid with the good outweighing the bad.
