It's Here: 50 Best Tacos in America

Posted: Updated:
After surveying more than 200 of the country’s leading food writers and taco authorities, the results are in, and Southern California had an impressive showing with 10 spots on this year’s list – three of which made the top ten! Mexicali Taco & Co., Los Angeles: Carne Asada Taco finished #6 on the list and #1 in LA. Check out the VIDEO review above and the TACO Slideshow Courtesy. The Daily Meal:)

“Tacos are a food that inspires fierce loyalty. Ask someone in Texas (Austin, in particular) where the country’s best tacos are and they’ll tell you’ve found it. But head to Los Angeles and you’ll meet people convinced that there’s nothing better than a perfectly fried fish taco. And you know what? They’ll both be right.”Dan Myers, The Daily Meal

Methodology

In order to assemble our ranking of America’s best tacos, The Daily Meal asked more than 200 of the nation’s leading food writers and taco authorities to send over a list of their absolute favorite tacos in the country. Not taquerías, mind you, but individual tacos they believe to be the absolute finest offering from their favorite taco shops. We asked them to include only brick-and-mortar taquerías as opposed to trucks, carts, and the like (that’s a ranking for another day, and also rules out Los Angeles’ popular Ricky’s). We also didn’t include breakfast tacos, because most would agree that those are an entirely different food altogether. We rounded out their submissions with tacos mentioned in best-of lists, both in print and online, as well as our personal favorites, and then assembled a list of more than 150 tacos, which we divided by region: East Coast, Midwest, Texas, Southwest, and West Coast. We then invited our panel of experts to vote for their favorites. At the end of the day, we were left with the 50 best tacos in America.
