Absolutely loved our tacos and quesadillas - went for chicken for all and they were great! Busy but queue moved quickly. Best tacos ever!

This goes on my must-do list whenever I am in NYC. Excellent tacos/quesadillas and excellent operation. You may think you have tried tacos, but this is a place of taco mastery. I have had tacos in Mexico. Los Tacos is very similar to Mexican taco...stands but with fresher ingredients and NYC’s tougher standards. The staff inspired confidence with efficiency and authenticity. Try the cactus tacos but their standards are what people come for.More

I never thought I’d like a taco so much that didn’t have cheese on it, but this place knocked my socks off. This little hole in the wall was just around the corner from the Hard Rock Cafe Time Square and across the street from...the theater where Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is being performed. The menu is very simple, four types of tacos and four types of quesadillas, plus chips with salsa or gauc. You go up to the register and order, then take your ticket down the line to give to one of the kitchen staff. You tell them if you want corn or flour tortillas and which of the four toppings you want, onions, cilantro, salsa and gauc. I got one carne asada and one chicken both on corn tortillas without onions. The kitchen staff were experts at dishing out the right amount of each thing and the little tacos were overflowing with goodness. The salsa was a little spicy, but it was SO GOOD. These were the best tacos of my life. Go here if you are near time square.More

There was a bit of a line to enter, but it moved really fast. We ordered 1 carne asada and 1 pork, each with all the toppings and with corn tortillas. The carne asada was so good! I rarely order red meat tacos just because...they tend to be more tough pieces, but this one was tender and the flavor was really good. Not overly seasoned in any aspect. My boyfriend ordered the pork and it didn’t come with the guacamole, which he was pretty bummed about. Other than that he really enjoyed and they were nice and juicy! We also ordered the agua fresca de jamaica and horchata. The jamaica was very refreshing and not overly sweet which was nice. The horchata was the only think I wasn’t really into, mostly because I like my horchata a bit more creamy and when it tastes like regular cinnamon, not like cinnamon flavoring. I would 100% go back, just for everything but the horchata 10/10 would recommendMore

Went on a Tuesday evening around 6:30. Line was out the door but it moved pretty quickly. They are definitely efficient. We tried the steak, chicken and pork tacos, and the Adobada pork were definitely our favorites. Super fresh, lots of flavor, and they don't...skimp on the meat. I would 100% go back.More

I tried each of the tacos (chicken, pork, beef, and cactus). I watched as they made them and couldn't wait to taste them. The flavoring on the meat was just right and the flour tortillas were so good. My wife got the corn tortillas with...hers and loved them. I plan to go there whenever I go back to NY. Great food!! *I was not a big fan of the cactus tacos, but it was more a "texture" thing for me.More

Love this place! I come here almost every visit to the city. The line often looks long but moves quickly. There is no seating - that keeps customers moving out after they eat instead of hunkering down and taking up space. Don’t bother trying to...cram a stroller in here - there’s not room for it and you’re being rude, tbh. If you don’t have kids old/tall enough to stand & eat at a counter, get it to go. Everything I’ve ever had here is great! The carne asada is my favorite and con todo is the way to go with toppings - just the perfect amount of spice for me.More

There was a line when they opened but we waited a bit and the counter service was very quick & efficient. Customers have to stand at shared counters to eat but it honestly just added to the fun and authenticity. Great location across from the...Harry Potter playhouse!More

I get around a lot, and i love tacos, i think i just found taco Nirvana! A co-worker suggested i try it while i was here and I'll never come to NYC again without going back. The tacos adobada are without a doubt the most...flavorful thing i have eaten this week, I'm sad I leave tomorrow and didn't try Los Tacos No. 1 sooner. I was at the times square location, it was packed, and had a line out the door and up the block. Totally worth the wait to get in there.More

This is a busy restaurant in Broadway. The tacos were great - we had chicken, beef and pork. In each case, the meat was really tasty and the other items, including soft tacos, fresh. It is standing room only so it is a quick stop...for food. No alcoholic beverages are available.More

Small place focusing entirely on s handful of dishes they do great. My daughter‘s steak tacos were fantastic, my plate of grilled cactus, steak, beans and cheese was awesome. Lovely hibiscus tea.

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.
