As a native (non-Mexican) NY'er, tex-mex is what I thought Mexican food was until i showed up in Mexico City. While there, I really caught a taste for pozole & sopes & tamales and various other hearty, grab-&-go-type foods you can buy from food carts & simple restaurants throughout Mexico. La Villita (or tacos neza) is an excellent spot for hearty, yummy Mexican food in NYC. Regardless the slow service (whatever you order is likely worth the wait), I would definitely recommend popping in when you're in the neighborhood.

Pros: super duper cheap,

Cons: it's not fast food, not nec. a con, but be aware

Since moving to NYC from LA, I found that most of the mexican food here tasted like it came from a chain restaurant. Also, most places are either tex-mex, or just generic. While the ambiance and the service arent all that spectacular, the food is great. Just like the food you would find in one of the hundreds of taco stands in LA. If you are looking for something fancy, don't check Neza. The food is simple, fresh, and tasty. I go for the Queso Asado or Carne Asada tacos, which are great. They have a variety of mexican sodas and beers, and if you make it there before they are all sold out, you can have a great home made tamale. They don't make guacamole at your table like the fancy mexican places here do, but if you want a taste of good california style tacos, this is it!
