Mexican tacos with a to-go window in North Beach

From a first-time restaurateur and a former Volare kitchen-minder, Nico's is a badass-neon-signed Mex-slinger now open in North Beach, serving up traditional taqueria fare (tacos/burritos/'dillas/nachos) topped with only-at-Nico's flair like California Crakslaw and Guerilla sauce, plus there's a late-night street-facing to-go window that'll sling weekend eats 'til 2a like Mexican sausage sandos, skewered meat, and grilled cheese made on Texas toast, also a wedding tradition in which the best man fills up his boot with Lone Star beer, then punches an Oklahoma resident in the sternum.
