The original Los Tacos No. is in Chelsea Market, and they do some of the best tacos in the city. This second location is, unfortunately, in Times Square. Although, the good new is: they make the same tacos. So the next time the R train breaks down, and you find yourself stranded in a land of German tourists and Mickey Mouse impersonators, get some food here. It isn’t as busy as the one downtown, and it would be worth a trip if Times Square weren’t technically the worst. Just know that they don’t have seats and that the corn tortillas are maybe the best we’ve had.
