Chef April Bloomfield's take on upscale Mexican street food in a vibrant, colorful setting.- Google
"The space is cool, the food is good, and the rooftop bar is great."
"Board games and ping pong tables for entertainment definitely helps."

Let's be honest: Us Yelpers look down (or should look down) on any restaurant with a three star rating or less so I didn't have high hopes for Salvation Taco. However, my colleagues wanted to go on a recent work trip to NYC and I'm glad they did! We sat at the bar and ordered chips, salsa, guac, carnitas tacos, and a few drinks. I had the bartender make me a drink twice and he was spot on every time (Shout out to bartender Frank). The guac and salsas were great and I really enjoyed the carnitas taco. They used quality carnitas. The restaurant is also huge and perfect for groups if you're in this part of Manhattan.

The carnitas and lamb roti taco were delicious. The place has a relaxed atmosphere. The menu is anything but standard for a taco place, but everything is executed well that it works.

A few distinctions: 1. The hotel (Pod 39) staff are great, as is the hotel in general. 2. The rooftop bar staff are complete a-holes, but it's a really nice spot. 3. The food and drinks are really good, but everything is wayyy overpriced.

The space is cool, the food is good, and the rooftop bar is great. However, I was shocked to see the $70 charge for a pitcher of Sangria on my bill. My fault for not looking at the menu closer, but quite frankly, I couldn't read the tiny font. I was not too happy about paying $9 for a small serving of chips and salsa either. The tamarind glazed pork shank taco "dinner" was delicious, but turned out to be less than I expected. I would like to go back, but really can't think of a reason why all things considered.

Good service, terrible food and terrible music. Definitely not coming back.

The tacos here are so moist and soft, and can't beat their fresh tortillas made in front of your eyes at the bar. Downsides - tortillas are super small and tacos come with literally meat and tortillas. Need a bit more (and not the $3/$4 surcharge for crema after tacos being pricey to begin with).

The best part about drinking and dining at Salvation Taco is the rooftop bar on the 17th floor. The elevator doors open to a nice indoor seating area but the real magic happens once you step down the small stairway underneath the twinkly lights. Through the columns and the archways you can view Manhattan skyscrapers (including the Chrysler Building). They only serve small bites served up here, so it's best to meet for drinks and a couple bowls of chips and guac. I've visited twice - once for a birthday party and once for drinks with friends and always found a place to sit.
