As a Midtown tortilla factory, Alicia's Tortilleria is tops. As a taqueria with some of the best burritos, chips and chile around—served up, of course, with its own tortillas—it's even better. This could be owners Alicia and Jorge Lovoya's commitment to authentic New Mexican and Mexican dishes, many of which they learned in their native Chihuahua, Mexico, or it could just be because it's harder than you'd think to find a straightforward taqueria in Santa Fe. Either way, our top recommendations go to the chile relleno burrito and the bean and cheese burrito with green chile. Both are good options for vegetarians. But with other choices such as the chile colorado con carne or the pork lover's barbacoa, carnivores can find a lot to love, too. Even better? All burritos are just $4.50. You'll also find Mexican standbys like flautas and tostadas as well as a diverse range of tortas with chicken, ham and beyond ($7). These are served with fried potatoes, natch, but we suggest picking up a half-pound of the fresh, thick and warm tortilla chips and going to town on the house-made guacamole. It's a little creamier than you're probably used to, but no less delicious. It's important to support corner burrito joints, both for the sake of our wallets and our stomachs.
