Time Out NY Cheap, fresh Mexican fare made with local ingredients keeps the Cobble Hillbillies coming at this Smith Street taqueria. The Oaxaca salad teems with pickled red onions, guacamole and cilantro-lime dressing. Overstuffed tacos--like the moist mahi-mahi or braised carnitas--come piled with more cilantro and peppy housemade salsas, while a flurry of cotija cheese tops slender enchiladas, filled with a choice of proteins (steak, shrimp, pork or chicken). Though seating is limited--pray for an open stool at the bar--the joint is as bright as its food, with sunny yellow walls and warm, welcoming employees.
