Just absolutely delicious tacos. I ordered one of every type, 2 corn and 2 four. Also got a quesadilla which was delicious. Almost as good as Taqueria Ramirez in agree point. Great stuff !!!

Put simply: the perfect Taco place we’ve been too. Order the Especial, it’s amazing. We went back three times during our stay in NYC. Fast-paced and no frills.

Doing some research on the area, we came across Los Tacos No.1 from several recommendations by locals. It’s fair to say the place is pretty hidden in Chelsea Market and while there are some brilliant eateries around , some do noticeably come across as more...pricey than others. Los Tacos No.1 isn’t much to look at initially and comes across as very much cantina-style; you order and pay , hand over the ticket to the cook, they ask if you have any preferences and then you pick up and go. However, it was a good sign from the start that this place was absolutely heaving with locals and crowds alike . The options on the menu are selective but they are listed clearly on the board, from carne asada, nopal, abodaba, pollo and of course quesadillas and burritos. We ordered two carne asada ( beef), a chicken and nopal ( cactus) tacos on corn tortillas with all the sides ( onion, cilantro and guacamole) alongside two apple sodas. The service was amazing and attentive and friendly particularly with how busy it was. The total came to less than $35.00 which is hard to beat compared to a lot of places in NYC. As for the food, it was absolutely delicious— the cactus was an option which was a bit unusual but surprisingly, and the beef was proper chargrilled and lean. Hands down one of the best places we’ve been to in NYC for tacos. A small tip though, especially for those going on weekends, try and get there for a reasonable time as it can get very busy with the lunch rush.More

Being from Austin I didn't have high expectations for the tacos here. But, I was wrong, both the chicken and the steak tacos were delicious. Either would have been a hit even in Austin which considers itself the taco capital of the world.

Good place for a quick lunch. The chicken tacos we had were delicious. The staff was friendly, and the homemade tortillas added a nice touch. If you like tacos, this place is worth a visit!

Heard great reviews on YouTube. Busy place. Tables to stand at. Mexican sodas- my husband said the Squirt was the best soda he's ever had. We googled to see why. Mexican Squirt has cane sugar as the sweetener, while the US used high fructose corn...syrup. I had a Sangria soda. It did taste like Sangria. As far as the taco. I got the pork on a corn tortilla. I typically do not like corn tortillas, but the tortilla itself was REALLY good. I also asked for it Con Todos, but they didn't put the guacamole on it. It looked beautiful but was SO SPICY! My lips were on fire. We also ordered chips and salsa, the salsa was also SUPER SPICY! I wanted to like it all a lot more than I did. If I come back to NYC, I would not be back.More

Two friends and I just finished dinner nearby but we were still hungry. That's when one of them remembered there is Los Tacos in the area, so we headed over for another bite. It was after 8 PM on a Wednesday and the place was...still pretty filled at that time. We didn't have to wait long but shortly after we ordered, a line started forming. The last time I had Los Tacos was probably pre-Covid at the Tribeca location. I remembered liking the carne asada so I went with a carne asada quesadilla. It was just as good as I remembered it. But prices have gone up now. You are going to shell out almost $6 for a taco. For that reason, I probably wouldn't come back for a full meal (especially when I can get really good tacos in Jersey for half the price), but if I am ever in a situation where I needed a quick bite or snack, I would pay Los Tacos another visit.More

I have a rule to never eat tacos unless in Mexico or in a state that touches Mexico. However I came here based on the recommendation of a trusted friend and loved the tacos. There is a choice between homemade flour or corn tortillas. The...tacos are quite large compared to traditional street tacos and they have many levels of salsa to choose from. The line was long but moved quickly. There are only standing doubters inside so it is crowded. Eat quickly and enjoy the tacos. I was surprised by how much I liked them.More

Yes, they have corn or flour tacos and I believe the corn ones are gluten free.

I think you'd be safest asking the chefs in the taco shop. I have no allergy and don't remember seeing anything containing nuts but I don't think any customer knows 100% Sorry I couldn't help more.
