Touting an East Los Angeles theme, but reflecting the whole of California, Uncle Moe’s is one of the few authentic feeling taquerias  in the NYC area.  The menu is complicated, so take a minute to look it over and feel free to ask questions.  The Vegetarian comes with guacamole, or you can order one of the other burritos and choose a filling or two.  Offering black or pinto beans and a slew of veggie fillings (some of which change seasonally) Uncle Moe’s gives you the variety you need.

Also, one of the only places to offer a salsa bar (an L.A. staple) in the NYC area.  Some creative spicing choices that may or may not jibe with conventionalists.  The first Uncle Moe’s opened in 1991 in Park Slope, I visited their second (of 2) stores in Manhattan.  I’ve been to the Brooklyn store as well ,many, many moons ago…

    Ugh. I wanted to like this place — like you say, it looks the part — but ended up disappointed every time. The guacamole tasted of chemicals, and my burritos sometimes had two tortillas because they didn’t know how to wrap them properly. I’ve been to the Park Slope location and been disappointed by that one, as well.
