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.

Papatzul seems to be just more middle-of-the road Mexican that pairs acceptably with strong margaritas. It’s the kind of place where you have to yell at the person sitting across from you, and should probably order everything the moment you see your server because you might not see him again for a while.
