Tacos, Tacos and more Tacos

I feel like so many taco/mexican places have opened up recently but which ones are worth it?

i happen to love taqueria on Orchard and I think that Empellon tacos are ok but overpriced...maybe i'm asking what are the best bang for your buck and which are worth the extra $$

    Los Tacos No 1 in Chelsea Market. The most authentic and delicious tacos I've found in the city thus far.

      Los Tacos line may get a little bit longer now that Hybird closed (2 days ago)

      I like Guelaguetza, a little bodega in Hells Kitchen. Great tacos and the best chicken Burrito in town

          thanks Kathryn! i saw that...i am a little apprehensive as Immaculate Infatuation gave it a 6.2, but I do like Hecho en Dumbo so I will definitely be giving it a try

            I like the IF guys but I often disagree with them regarding food (and sometimes they get things factually incorrect).
