5 Great Tacos Spots in NYC to Celebrate Taco Tuesday


I can't think of a week that goes by that I don't have a taco or two. Check out my round up of 5 places to grab a taco in New York City so all your Taco Tuesdays can be on fab.

La Esquina

We have all seen our favorite bloggers/influencers take their photo in front of this cafe, but have you dined at La Esquina in SoHo? During the day it is a fast-casual spot to grab a quick taco and soda, but at night their hidden brassiere is open with a sexy vibe, a full menu, great cocktails, and sometimes a DJ. If you aren't near SoHo check out their other two locations on the Upper East Side or in Midtown.

My favorite tacos: Fish, Rib-eye, and Lamb



Some of the best Tex-Mex I have had in New York City and also has some of the largest sizes tacos I have seen as well. You won't leave Javelina hungry.

My favorite tacos: Grilled Shrimp, Brisket, and Chicken

Cantina Taqueria & Tequila Bar

No need to leave Harlem to get a good taco and Cantina has locations on two major avenues in Harlem. Taco Tuesday is a holiday here, and they celebrate with $3 tacos all day long from open to close.

Los Tacos No. 1

2,000 + plus reviews on Google can’t be wrong! If you have ever been to Chelsea Market then you know Los Taco No. 1 tacos is easily one of the most identifiable vendors by the long line of customer waiting to get their hands on one of their tacos. Check out their second location in Midtown for less of a wait.
