It’s a tiny neighborhood place with few tables. The service is good but the food (for a Mexican restaurant) was bland. Even after the hot peppers I asked for (there is a charge for that) the food still needed some seasoning.

My wife and I were there to celebrate my sons birthday with his friends on 03/04 (sunday). Even though we had a reservation for 7:30 PM and we arrived at the restaurant at 7:15 we were unable to secure a 6 person table till 8:40PM. Our group had to split into two and we kept hearing 5 minute more and on on & on.. It was pointless making the reservation and the restaurant should do more to give preference to people who make a reservation. Or if people come before the reservation time they should be politely told that there is a reservation for the big table for 7:30PM. The people before us (teens) although had paid their bill but had no urgency to leave and were just hanging out and the hostess was requested 6 times before he finally ( I am not too sure) showed the people just hanging there some urgency. I have been going to Nixtamal for over 7 years now but solely based on my last experience I will not go there again.

Food was yummy. Service was fantastic. It was a freezing cold day & the staff made sure the space heaters were focused towards the patrons. Shrimp tacos were delicious!

I've eaten at Tortilleria Nixtamal a dozen times and I've never been disappointed. There were 6 of us this past Saturday and everyone loved the service, ambiance, drinks and food. They make their own masa (the process is called "nixtamal") daily, a few blocks away. The fresh masa is used to create their remarkable Pozole and Tortilla Soups, Tamales, Tostadas, Chips and of course warm Tortillas for their delicious (many varieties) Tacos. The recipes and much of the waitstaff come directly from Mexico. Corona is a goldmine of fabulous ethnic restaurants, history and warm, welcoming residents. I travel 150 miles from Upstate NY to eat here!

Pros: Happy to find my table was reserved and waiting for us.
Food tasted great, especially the tacos al pastor.

Cons: Tacos and soup portions were a bit small.
There is not a kids menu available.
Only one bathroom for everyone.
Spicy levels are not labeled on the menu.
Not many non-spicy options.

We arrived at the time our reservation had been scheduled for and they informed our group that they didn't and never have taken reservations. Luckily, we were able to sit down right away but we got the last table. It was extremely overcrowded and uncomfortable so we ended up going to the take out window outside. It took about 10 minutes just to get to the front of the line, and there were only 2 groups of people ahead of us. They seemed very flustered and inefficient; as if they had never had to deal with crowds before. It was a Sunday afternoon around bunch time. This is going to be a crowded time for all NYC restaurants and this specific place had been featured on TV (which is why our group went there in the first place). I think if they knew their place would become popular due to the thousands of people watching the show they were featured on, they should accommodate appropriately. Needless to say, we got the food to go and ate about 30 minutes after we got it. We ordered the Carnitas stone pot thing since it was a brunch menu, but since we took it to go it was just in a foil circular container. We also got a couple of pork tamales, a tortilla soup, and a pound of corn tortillas to take home. The tortillas are made in house and are just made of white corn and water. You can't get any fresher and it was amazing. The taste of everything else was incredibly delicious and I can see why they were featured, but they might not stay as popular as they are if they continue to run around like chickens without heads.
