El Aguila

Mexican in Upper East Side

Dig into cheap and cheerful chicken, tongue and bistec (grilled steak) tacos at this no-frills, tile-clad taqueria. Tasty alternatives include tamales, tostadas, tortas and veggie burritos, all served with a side of blaring Mexican tunes. If you’re heading in for breakfast, dig into the pan dulce (a sweet Mexican bun).
