The question is not where can you find a taco in Dallas - it’s where can’t you? And with so many choices, we wanted to spotlight 20+ of the best taco destinations in the Big D. Each place serves up a unique taco experience, and we, of course, recommend that you try them all because you cannot go wrong when tacos are involved!

Ayahuasca is not your typical taco spot, it's actually one of our favorite speakeasies! This spot is family owned and inspired by meals the family grew up eating in Mexico. You can order the taco of the day, or you can get one chicken taco and one rib-eye taco. They also have sopes and lots of other diverse items, so come ready to try something new.

Chilangos opened 2019 on Harry Hines and just recently in Legacy Food Hall! It’s a hole-in-the-wall dive meets contemporary taco spot, and they're serving up fantastic street tacos and other fare. While you can’t beat any of the tacos they offer, the al pastor is unbeatable, as is the mushroom quesadilla! And they have fresh made aqua frescos and horchata to wash it all down!

Del Sur is bringing the best Mexican flavors straight to your table! Try their carnitas tacos, birria tacos or their chile relleno taco for a little something extra! Specials are available every Tuesday 3-9 PM in honor of Taco Tuesday, and they have live music on Thursdays and Saturdays. It's a fun atmosphere with delicious eats and drinks!

El Come Taco

This place was one of the first places we ever went to in Dallas, and it was like discovering heaven. And four years late, El Come is still serving our favorite taco spots. Words that make us crave a taco: authentic, hole-in-the-wall, cheap, and, most importantly, family-owned. El Come is all that, and more. Order the Pollo a la Mexican and the el pastor with pineapple!

Off of 35 in Oak Cliff, sits a former gas station-turned-taqueria that serves some of the best homemade recipes! We fell in love with the al pastor tacos, which are to die for. This off-the-beaten-path place has a lot of charm, and we love how dedicated the family is to the quality. They even came out and chatted with us when there and offered us some homemade, caramel-filling churros to end our meal!

Fuel City is a car wash that, yes, is also one of the top taco spots in Dallas. Some Dallasites have long claimed that Fuel City is THE top spot. While waiting for your tacos, you can drive through the $5 car wash and take advantage of the free vacuuming service. After you pick up your tacos, you can hang out with the cattle out back while you eat.

Mami Coco Tacos

At Mami Coco, you can get the street tacos for $1.99 or the tripa dorada for $2.50. Those prices cannot be beaten! They have lots of different meats to choose from including pork, beef tongue, chicken, and more. You can also get a burrito, flautas, and other classics if that's more up your alley!

Enjoy a taco feast at Milagro with authentic Tijuana street tacos! Expand your palate and try their Ensenda fish taco, molé fries, birria tacos and the ceviche tostada, which was featured in D-Magazine! For those looking for vegetable dishes, try the delicious veggie bowl! Brunch is served on the weekends until 3 PM, so you can sleep in without having to miss out on the best meal of the day!

Resident Taqueria takes a more modern approach to a taqueria with a menu that reflects a more vegetable-friendly crowd. Expect to find a fantastic cauliflower taco with kale, pepita, and aioli, and an out-of-this-world slow-cooked mushroom taco with queso, poblano, and almond salsa. They also have meat-heavy tacos that are great too! 

Lake Highlands | Directions



Revolver Tacos

Another native-Fort Worthian institution, Revolver Taco Lounge finally made its way to Deep Ellum across from Pecan Lodge. It has expanded its menu from what used to be just 6 tacos to a super extensive list of tacos, sides, and unique beverages. Our choice taco to get while there? The Al Pastor!

Another spot with a taco that melts the cheese on the tortilla first - Salsa Limon’s El Capitan taco is divine with its Oaxaca-Jack cheese, pickled cabbage, onion, cilantro, and your choice of meat. This Fort Worth favorite also serves breakfast tacos ALL day and the horchata is the best we’ve had in Dallas!

Downtown | Directions



Two words describe why we love this Austin-based taco “deli:” breakfast tacos. And you can find them all over town as they sell to many coffee shops including, including Houndstooth and Fiction, so if you can’t make it to Taco Deli in the morning, you can probably find their tacos at a coffee shop nearby!

Ask any Dallas foodie who has been around long enough, and they will name Tacos La Banqueta as one of the best taco institutions in this city. It might not be the first place that catches your eye, but the tacos are phenomenal. Get the Cabeza, aka cow head meat, lengua, aka beef tongue, and suadero, aka a braised cut of meat with charred edges.

La Ventana Tacos

One of Dallas’s gems set behind the historic El Fenix restaurant, La Ventana has a Miami-type vibe with hanging lights, colorful decor, and lively music. And a reason to come beyond the atmosphere and food? The $3.50 margaritas during happy hour! There are several more locations now too, scattered around DFW - we love the one on Cedar Springs for its vibrant patio and murals!

Taco Stand

Founded in 2013 in La Jolla, California in a quaint space near the ocean, The Taco Stand is reminiscent of taquerias in Tijuana, and immediately grabbed attention. They have since expanded to 7 locations across the US, including Dallas! Find authentic tacos with tortillas made in house, burritos, traditional loaded fries, quesadillas, and sides like corn on the cob, chips and guacamole, and fresh churros! Every dish is filled with authentic flavors and fresh ingredients.

Bishop Arts' staple taco and wine bar... it's Taco Y Vino! We couldn't name a better duo if we tried! It's a crowd favorite offering a few seafood starters and create-your-own tacos and quesadillas. We love their 6 tacos and a bottle of wine deal, which is only $40. You can even mix and match their different meat offerings to experience different flavors. If you're looking for a delicious brunch, visit for their breakfast tacos on the weekend!

Trompo began as just a little window inside an empty room of white walls and has since been named One of America’s Best New Restaurants by Bon Appetit Magazine! So what made it land on the national list? It’s pink-colored pork (pastor) thanks to the trompo, or spit, it rotates on.

Taco Enamorado

This recently opened spot is also known as "Taco in Love", and we totally see why! The menu features seven traditional Mexican street tacos such as chicharron and chori-queso, all for just over $2 each. Wash them down with one of their flavored agua frescas and fall in love!
