Tacos are one of the great gifts that God gave us mere mortals here on earth. They’re pretty much perfect which is why we had to pull together a quick list of solid Tennessee spots if you’re looking to enjoy a bout of taco-rich goodness this summer.
1. Soccer Taco - Knoxville
It may be a chain, but Knoxvillians swear by Soccer Taco. The quality is great and the service is fast which means we'll be coming back again and again.
2. Taconooga - Chattanooga
Owned and operated by a husband and wife, Taconooga is well-loved by the locals and is served on fresh tortillas daily.
3. Senor Taco - Knoxville
They proffer fresh and authentic Mexican food, and that's definitely what you get at Senor Taco! Knoxville has hit one out of the park with their fun atmosphere and killer taco menu options.
4. Mas Tacos Por Favor - Nashville
This Nashville local spot has earned rave reviews across the board, with tortilla soup that edges on perfection and $3 tacos that hit the mark every time.
5. Elena's Taco Shop - Memphis
They may be known for their carne asada fries, but Elena's Taco Shop, located in Memphis, serves up their fare with a California twist.
6. Las Tortugas Deli Mexicana - Memphis
The fresh fish tacos here are to DIE for, but we're even more excited that Las Tortugas truly changed the edge on the taco quality level with their father-son team that values authenticity above all else.
7. Bajo Sexto - Nashville
This fun, new taco eatery is located both on the west side and downtown, which means you have twice the opportunity to enjoy.
8. Babalu Tacos & Tapas - Memphis
If the patio isn't enough to win you over, the tacos will push you over the edge. The blue corn tortillas are made on the daily, and a sweet southern night with a light breeze is just what we all need.
9. Poblano's - Chattanooga
Poblano's offers brunch from 11-3 on Sundays, which means that you can combine your love of taco pockets of goodness with your utter brunch obsession.
10. Local Taco - Nashville
One of our favorite spots in the city, Local Taco can be found both in Sylvan Park and in East Nashville, plus they have a Brentwood location now, too! You're never far from a Local Taco, no matter where you go.
