2. Red Pepper - Grand Forks
There's something very unique about this restaurant in Grand Forks, but that is where the Red Pepper brings in all of its charm. They're known for their amazing tacos, special sauce, and the fact that they never, EVER have any forks available. In a town called Grand Forks, why would you? They have been named the best place to get late-night food in the entire country by Esquire. There is no better place to satisfy those late-night taco cravings than here. The building of the main location may be a bit unusual, but their food is nothing but amazing. It is an experience everyone needs to have!

4. Vinyl Taco - Fargo
This place has character you won't find anywhere else, and great tacos to boot! Vinyl Taco is proud of its handcrafted taco creations as well as the ambience of their shop that plays, you guessed it, vinyl all day, every day. The tortillas you get the tacos in are always round - like a record - and topped with yummy goodness. It's a little different but well worth a try (or three, or four...).

5. Mi Mexico - Minot
One of this place's most notable and loved meals is their steak tacos. My mouth is watering just looking at them!

Authentic, delicious, and perfect, that's what makes Mi Mexico muy bueno!
