“Amazing Tacos!”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Hidden in the Chelsea Market among artisan food, clothing, and gift vendors, Los Tacos is a great little find. When we visited there was almost no line. I tried a Pollo and Carne Taco, and both were mouth wateringly delicious.

These are big tacos, but you can tell they're made with quality products. Make sure you get the guacamole on top, and I prefer a corn tortilla, but any way you go, these tacos are excellent. They are what you'd expect at a much more expensive sit down Mexican restaurant.

There are also a variety of options on the side to spice up your meal. If you're in Chelsea Market, this is the place to go. My only complaint was, there was almost nowhere to sit, but that seemed to be a problem throughout the market, as people found any place they could to crouch with their food.

“Great Tacos”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

The Tacos are a real treat. Good value for money at $3 each for the chicken and $3.50 for the steak ones. I can't wait to go back to try the quesadilla's next time. The salsa's on the side were zesty without being over powering, I recommend this place for a snack on the go or something more substantial when you're next in the Meatpacking district.

“Great NYC Tacos”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Located on the first floor of the Chelsea Market, this place serves first rate tacos. I had the asada and the adobada and both were excellent. My companions had the pollo which were also good. Our vegetarian daughter had the nopal which she rated as fine, though I'm not sure the tortilla would be vegan. Seating is a challenge, but we were able to walk out to the High Line and find a table. However, they were definitely the best tacos that I've eaten east of the Mississippi.

“Excellent fast food!”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Tasty & worth the price. I had corn made quesadillas with chicken and grilled cactus. I think they remove the bones from the chicken, grill it and cut in to small pieces. That gives the special aroma. I have not eaten cactus before and will eat it again!
