    While the lines at this stand in Chelsea Market can be pretty loco, the food is worth the wait. Everything is made from family recipes. The salsa packs a wallop.

    This Queens factory supplies 100% corn tortillas to some of the city's best Mexican restaurants, so you know the tacos here will be top-notch. The chicken gets marinated with carrots, while the shrimp gets sautéed with mango. Yes and yes.

    This bodega taqueria lets you fill your belly while stocking up on paper towels and dish soap. We love the lamb and pork skin tacos, both garnished with crunchy fresh radishes.

    Hongo (mushroom) tacos, nopales (cactus) tacos, al pastor (roast pork) tacos, oh my. To drink, try the house-made horchata or one of the many fruit shakes.

    A temple to tacos in the West Village helmed by Alex Stupak, a well-regarded pastry chef turned award-winning Mexican chef. A high-end take riff on Mexico's best street food.

    This vibrant wedge of a restaurant gets our vote for best tacos in the Bronx. Also excellent are the service, the atmosphere, the guacamole, and the coconut flan.

    How's this for freshness? This taqueria is located inside a tortilleria. Alas, the secret's out thanks to a New York Times review, so expect a wait during prime times.

    Nothing says summer in New York quite like plopping down on the beach with a couple of fish tacos from Rockaway Taco.

    This Bushwick chainlet offers an extensive menu of Mexican standards, including double-wrapped tacos stuffed with carnitas (pork), lengua (tongue), or huevos y rajas (eggs and peppers), among other proteins.

    Everything here is made fresh each day and evokes the bright colors and bold tastes of southern Mexico. Terrific rice and beans, too.

    Perhaps the most family-friendly Mexican restaurant in New York, this Sunset Park stalwart packs in the crowds. The al pastor taco is stuffed with roast pork from a spit turning in the back.
