This question has been asked many times.

The general concensus is:

  1. Tacos El Champu
  2. Tacos El Gordo
  3. Los Michiocanos
  4. Cesar’s

Doing a quick google search, does it still have two locations?

Which one?

Showing a location on north National and south Campbell

Tacos El Champu had a food truck on S Campbell in front of Ace Hardware. They also have a restaurant near fort and sunshine. Food truck is the OG.

El Gordo has a place on National - north of west chestnut.

Cesar’s is on sunshine, east of Glenstone.

Los Michiocanos has a restaurant at the corner of glenstone and sunshine, and another in the same plaza as El Champu near fort and sunshine.

Don't feel like I see this one get mentioned often, but Taqueria Cachanilla on S Glenstone has excellent tacos. Tamales are fantastic as well.

I think that some of these other suggestions are good options, but I believe the Don Toño taco truck on Glenstone is the best I've personally had. They're located in the parking lot next to the Neighborhood Market. Really low-key place but the guy who runs it is super nice and everything he makes is excellent.

Pinches Taco truck in front of Pep Boys on Battlefield. Taco Express truck near the brown derby/U-Haul on north Glenstone. Tacos El Gordo (I prefer the north side). Purple Burrito.

Love Pinches Tacos! Their barbacoa, Al pastor, fish, and shrimp tacos are all fantastic. Additionally, they have really good Birria tacos as well.

Tinga Tacos is really good

Cesar’s has really good tacos too

Tacos El Gordo, hands down

I tend to agree… that roja pork is to die for on a street taco. One of the best for sure

Have you guys tried Brothers Tacos? I really like them, especially their burria tacos.

I loved when their truck was on Sunshine in front of Pitbull Powersports. Then they vanished without warning… at least I didn’t see any.

New to town and was wondering where the best tacos were also. What about margaritas? I’ve tried Cesar’s, El Puente and Senor Julians so far.

Add to mix: Sabor de Mexico will likely be at Hold Fast Brewing this evening, and they are good. Good lengua.

If you like good fish tacos, The Wheel House (truck specifically) has really good ones!

Cesar's Old Mexico is worth a try. Wheel House has some interesting takes on a taco, but they are not like your traditional tacos. Both are on Sunshine.

I should add that La Hacienda on Glenstone, just north of Sunshine has a taco Tuesday price. I think like $1.75 or something like that for a beef taco. Which is usually where we go when we want a taco.
