    Wow just as I'm heading out of NYC, I find a powerhouse! Los Tacos is authentic and their adobado taco comes with pineapples which is a really nice twist. Flavors are just fantastic. Def top 3 !!

    Legit the best taco spot in the 5 boroughs hands down (I've been to them all). Carne asada tacos are scrumptious and the corn tortillas are so fresh. Line a bit long but worth the wait.

    The tacos were so good! So much flavor for this street style taco spot. Even though they're extremely busy they keep everything moving pretty quickly. I'll definitely be back

    Unreal tacos, by far the best in the city. Carne asana was great, but pork (abobado) was even better. Fresh tortillas pressed right before you eat them.

    Best TACOS in NYC! Get a Carne Asada and Adobada on their homemade corn tortilla with everything on it. Tamarindo or Mexican Soda to wash it all down. The long line moves quickly. Well worth it.

    Incredible tacos, seriously, get one of each. Steak, chicken, pork, cactus... find out what the Especial is too! Fresh pressed tortillas, guac included, and lots of accompaniments on the bar.

    Amongst best outside of Cali: homemade corn tortillas (fluffier than most), tasty pollo asado, & balance spice w/ horchata! *Carne asada on chewier side & Quesadillas prepared differently from norm.

    Get the adobada taco, and that's all you'll be able to think about for at least the next day.... So delicious that it's worth it to power through every single spicy but amazing pork and pineapple bite

    Fantastic tacos that are *almost* as good as the tacos in LA :) No, seriously though, the tacos at Los Tacos No. 1 are one of the best I've had in the city! They also have a really cool topping bar.

    This is the best taco place in Manhattan, I should know I'm Mexican. Make yourself a favor and order corn tortillas, these are handmade, that's a big deal even in Mexico.

    One of my favourite food stops during my recent trip. Great atmosphere and tasty tacos. Make sure to use some of the free dressings on top of the bar.

    They live up to hype. It was very big queue but they serve very fast. We tried Pork and Chicken on corn tortila. Both were good. They have different kind of sauce. Dont forget to try them

    This has become my favorite Mexican place in the city. Get the adobada quesadillas on handmade flour tortillas w/everything. They're so delicious, I shamelessly asked for an extra tortilla to go.

    Hands down the best tacos in NYC and in this country. Carne asada is my favorite. Just as good as the legit TJ tacos I used to eat on the Mexican border. Fave spot in NYC

    Venture inside Chelsea Market for a taco experience. The only challenge--there’s no seating, so you’ll have to keep your balance when the pork adobado makes you weak in the knees. Read more

    2 tacos is enough if you're not too hungry. The adobada/ pork was so good! Make sure to try the sauces if you like spicy!

    Get the pork taco. The pineapple on topping is delicious! 🍍 No where to sit but you can eat (if you can avoid dribbling taco juice down your chin) and explore Chelsea Market. 🌮

    Favorite taco place in NYC! They have a storefront at W 43rd St if you’re looking sit down. I get the adobo corn taco - so good! Try the dried whole chiles 🌶 (it’s spicy) they have on the counter 😋

    The adobada tacos will change you as a person. Filled with marinated roasted pork and strips of pineapple, they're also sure to drag you right back in line for more.

    The "adobada" is a slow roasted rotisserie pork taco seasoned with achiote seeds and spices, freshly chopped cilantro and white onions. Read more

    The line is always bustling which is telling of great food. I always go for a taco and a special of fried quesadilla. It's greasy. It's indulgent. It's something you just need sometimes😉

    The adobada tacos are salty and flavorful. Get yours on corn tortillas, fully loaded. Eat them immediately and quickly - the counter gets packed during peak hours.

    Everything here is good, though I've never had the chicken since the steak and pork options are so amazing. Ask for corn tortillas ya filthy animal

    We sampled all 4 tacos fillings. Marinated pork on corn tortilla ($4.85) was the tastiest & most aromatic. Our next vote went to grilled steak/beef ($4.95) for the flavour & smokiness

    Step 1 - place your order. Step 2 - give your ticket to a taquero. Step 3 - watch your taquero make your order. Step 4 - load on the toppings. Step 5 - enjoy your scrumptious order!

    After paying, hand over the receipt to the kitchen for them to prep ur orders. For tacos, they offered a choice of tortilla (corn or flour), & topping options (onion, cilantro, salsa, guacamole)

    Los mejores asada y pollo tacos I've had in awhile. Cactus was asi-asi. Sensational agua horchata. Long line, but it moves briskly. Finally, don't forget to hand your receipt to the food prepper guys!

    What separates a good from a great taco? Perfectly made meat, whatever it is. Nopal was boring but can attest chicken and pork are amazing. Especial next time!

    I got each of the steak, pork and chicken taco on a flour tortilla. Pork and steak were really tasty. Chicken taco was a little watery. I'd get again as long as I have cash, they don't take Amex!

    Especial quesadilla, which is deep fried! Add pork. Carne asada and chicken tacos are good too. The grilled cactus (nopal) was okay, a little too slimy for my taste.

    Always scratches the taco itch. Adobada should be the go to, but the especial with carne asada is fantastic as well.

    Legit eats. Try the adobada (pork) and top w/grilled habeneros on the counter. Fresh corn or flour tortillas made right in front of you. Double points for habiscus agua fresca

    These are the best tacos in NYC! (maybe you can find better in a more Hispanic hood but for Chelsea these are bomb). Always a long line but they’re quick. And def try all their homemade salsas.

    Possibly best tacos and quesadillas I’ve ever had! Queue goes pretty quick and certainly worth the wait. They are quite small so order 3 different types: chicken, pork and steak and enjoy. 10/10.

    If you LOVE cheese...ask for the secret item on the menu...replace the tortilla on any taco for a CHEESE SHELL and prepare to have your mind blown! 🤯 🌮 🧀

    Some of the best tacos in NYC. Order 2 pork tacos, with corn tortillas, devour hungrily with some added salsa at the counter. Consider ordering another one, but #selfcontrol. Order another one anyway.

    Best taco place in NYC. It’s busy every day but the line moves quick, the service is friendly, and the food is so delicious. Get 3 tacos if you’re hungry & make sure one of them is the carne asada

    The slender menu, offering four choices on just-made tortillas, of which the best is adobada, which is very much like pork al pastor. Best deal are the mulas, which are like California quesadillas.

    Lived up to the hype. The fried queso tortilla was greasy, but really good. Pork quesadilla especial was the best thing we got, but all the tacos were good. One negative: there's truly nowhere to sit.

    The adobados are basically al pastor and super delish. Probably the most deliciously authentic tacos I've had outside of Mexico.

    I am Mexican. And these are by far the best tacos in this city. It's all about good tortillas and fresh ingredients. The ones of carne asada are delicious. We only need a super spicy sauce!

    Make sure to get your tacos on a corn tortilla with everything. The lime wedges, hot sauces & pico de gallo are along the counter.

    These tacos are piled high with grilled cactus and various salsas, and you can add other toppings on the bar for free...get horchata because some of their salsas are face-meltingly spicy.

    The adobada excels! Can't stop thinking about when I'll be going back. Whoever heard of Mexican pork on a spit like schwarma? Amazing complex flavors.

    The name of this joint alone should warrant a visit! Los Tacos, made my Los Guys, are the real deal. Big fan of all the grilled extras they add to the tacos. Wash it down with an agua fresca.
