The cheap tacos at this brightly colored order-at-the-counter café make for a good snack after a night at the bars in Greenwich Village or a trip to the Strand. The Boston-based mini-chain specializes in Baja-style fish tacos, but it offers steak, chicken, shrimp, chorizo, and vegetarian varieties as well. Most of the options are adequate, though not particularly inventive or superbly executed. For a more filling meal, order one of the seven grilled flour quesadillas, like the nicely spiced chorizo and salsa. The Dorado Chopped salad, which mixes romaine with shredded green cabbage, scallions, tomatoes, cucumbers, and chunks of watermelon, offers a healthy crunch. Soda fans will be thankful for authentic Mexican Coke and several varieties of Jarritos. For something harder, there’s a selection of Mexican beers.
