When it comes to New York City, you're almost literally inundated with choices for where to get your Mexican food. It's no wonder, either: it's fast, it's cheap, it's delicious, and best of all: it's filling. And while we think that the stuff at Chipotle is totally delicious, albeit a little pricey, we highly recommend you make the trip to try out these bad boys. You'll be glad you did.

1. Dos Toros Taqueria - Best Veggies

With locations in the Upper East Side, Union Square, and West Village, you're hard-pressed to find yourself too far from this really incredible Mission-style burrito joint. The portions here are enormous, which is exactly what you want, so don't plan on eating this while you're walking.

Though the meat in the burrito is good enough, it's completely eclipsed by the deliciousness of the beans and the freshness of the salsa pico. You can get away with getting the Basic here and not miss out on much. Also, always get guacamole.

2. Don Pancho - Best Meat

East Williamsburg has some real gems when it comes to Latin American eats. Don Pancho is one of our absolute favorites. Unlike Dos Toros, which won us over with their salsa, they win us over with their meat. Their Magic Burrito couldn't be more aptly named: there's no way some chaotic kind of pagan rite didn't have a hand in how flavorful that steak is, or how sinfully good their spicy green sauce is. If you're in the mood for something lighter, their Shrimp Burrito is also fantastic.

3. La Troca del Sabor - Best Value

Maybe not the most absolutely delicious burrito in the city, but a little bit of money goes a really long way at La Troca del Sabor, a food cart parked nigh-permanently on North 4th, just off of the Bedford Avenue strip. It's run by the most friendly woman in the world, and her graciousness extends to her prices. The huge burritos here start at $4, and, depending on the meat you get, only scale up by a buck or two. It's the perfect place to stumble to when you're drunk in the area and need something for the train ride home.
