Tiny, incomplete kitchens and astronomical grocery prices have made take-out a New York institution. In every borough, city-dwellers strive to find those delicious, reliable delivery spots in every cuisine. The delivery options in Brooklyn are ever-expanding, and Park Slope is now populated with fantastic to-go options, particularly in Mexican cuisine. Before you browse through dozens of burrito reviews on Seamless, try ordering in from one of these mouthwatering Mexican spots in Park Slope.
1. Fatty Daddy Taco
There probably aren’t more than six stools in this hole-in-the-wall taco joint, so it’s perfectly poised for take-out and delivery. Come to Fatty Daddy Taco for great takes on the classics. The burritos are enormous, the tacos are packed with flavor and the guacamole is to-die-for. While you won’t find gourmet entrees at Fatty Daddy, you will find everything you need for a night of quality binge eating.
2. La Boulangerie Lopez
This South Slope bakery and cafe is fairly bare-bones on the inside, but it serves an astonishingly thorough range of good food. In addition to Mexican snacks and entrees, La Boulangerie Lopez makes a killer burger and could give Starbucks a run for its money with the selection of specialty coffee drinks. The breads are freshly made in-house every day, and there is quite literally something for everyone on the menu.
3. Aroma a Mexico
Aroma a Mexico is new to the Brooklyn restaurant scene, and despite the slowness of early business, the food is promising. Prices are reasonable for the Mexican entrees at this low-key family-friendly restaurant. They are still cash-only, so Aroma a Mexico may be more convenient for pick-up for the time being. The dishes are flavorful, portions are generous and the authenticity is above and beyond so many of the horrifying Tex-Mex disasters in New York. Make sure to try the ultra-spicy Enchiladas Suizas, and treat yourself to Aroma a Mexico’s warm, crunchy churros for dessert.
4. Rachel’s Taqueria
Rachel’s Taqueria is all about California-style Mexican food, and for the most part the menu lives up to Californian standards. It isn’t the cheapest of take-out options, but the food always arrives hot, fresh and is ultimately satisfying. The nachos are a particular standout. Unlike the stale, cold plate of decayed tortillas that delivery nachos can be at their worst, Rachel’s nachos are crisp, warm and unapologetic cheesy. This take-out hotspot excels at making the standard ingredients in Mexican food as delicious as they can and should be.
The availability of these four tasty Mexican options means that there’s no reason to settle for mediocre take-out in Park Slope. Enjoy the incredible options, and don’t forget to add the tip!
