Hello my name is Snack Dragon. My Job is to make you the best damn tacos this side of the Mexican border! Our taco research laboratory is dedicated to bringing you made-fresh daily food – with late night hours! Everything is jam packed with flavor and freshness. In Mexico ‘Authentic’ means what’s available and that’s what we do: take advantage of the abundance of New York City. Our Carne asada, for example, is marinated in a citrus chipotle sauce before it is chopped to order for your taco which is served on a blue corn tortilla. We recently introduced our new Thai-inspired Umami Taco – pork slowly braised in tamarind sauce, 5 spice powder, coriander and garlic. if there is something on the menu you haven’t tried yet take a chance. Money back guarantee! Each item is designed to maximize on deliciousness.
With love,

Dear lord of many faces, Please send all of your angels,
