Your Tastebuds Will Go Crazy For This Amazing Taco Trail In South Dakota

Tacos are quite possibly the perfect food. They’re portable, flavorful and filling. South Dakota has plenty of chain restaurants that serve some tasty tacos (hello, Taco John’s!), but we have a soft spot in our hearts for little local places. Take a look at our Taco Trail, which takes you from the southeast corner of the state all the way to Custer.

The Taco Trail goes all the way across the state. There are some big gaps along the way, and to be honest, in those towns you’ll often find a Taco John’s. This huge, national chain is often all a small South Dakota town can support, and the tacos are perfectly fine. If you just can’t make it between towns without stopping for a taco, we give you permission to get an order of street tacos and potato olés.

How many of these tasty taco restaurants have you already checked off your list? Which of your favorites would you add to the trail?
