Your Tastebuds Will Go Crazy For This Amazing Taco Trail In Kansas
You’ve seen our love for fried chicken, our desire for ice cream, and many other great trails in Kansas, but this trail will have your tastebuds dancing and your hands reaching for a good Margarita. Let’s talk tacos! This Taco Trail right here in Kansas is sure to satisfy your need for something that isn’t a cookie-cutter chain restaurant. With a drive time a little more than 5 hours, you can do this all in one day, or spread it out over the weekend! Either way, there are no stops you can miss on this fun food trail.
If you're already as excited as I am,
here's the link to the map you'll need to make this trip happen. You can take it either direction, depending on your location.
1. Tacos Jalisco - Edit
412 E Wyatt Earp Blvd Dodge City, KS
As far as tacos go, this is my favorite spot in Dodge City. I'd recommend the Al Pastor tacos, as they're probably the best thing I've had from their menu! Make-your-own tacos are a fantastic invention, and this place is full of flavor, even when the plates are only styrofoam. It's a strong first spot for this taco trail, that's for sure!
2. El Dos de Oros - 421 West 14th Larned, KS
El Dos de Oros might not have any photos of their tacos, but don't let that turn you away. Their tacos are just as good as these burritos, no lie.
3. Maria's Mexican Grill - 3212 10th St Great Bend, KS
Yes, I know this doesn't look like a taco. It's a torta. I decided sometimes you need a little break from tacos, and so a sandwich is almost the same thing, minus tortillas. Why not give it a try? It's bound to be better than your local taco tico, that's for sure.
4. La Fiesta Mexican Restaurant - 2210 N Buckeye Ave Abilene, KS
The words "carne asada" will turn my ear no matter what, because I've got a devotion to these tacos for sure. Abilene's best taco spot, 100 percent!
5. El Tapatio Mexican Restaurant - 322 W 6th St
Junction City, KS
This isn't a taco either, but I was so distracted by this molcajete that I didn't even look for their carne asada. Crazy, right? I'd recommend getting one of these, for sure. Plus, there's always the option of getting both! ¿Porque no los dos?
6. Taco Lucha - 1130 Moro St Manhattan, KS
TAco Lucha is in my Hall of Taco Fame because, well, look at it. It tastes ten times better than it looks, and that's impressive in itself. There's really nothing on this menu I can't recommend to you.
7. Toto's Tacoz - 515 Lincoln St Wamego, KS
Fish tacos! Toto's Tacoz does great fish tacos, and if you can get by the Wizard of Oz themed everything in Wamego, then this is a great place to stop and smell the salsa. Tomatilla salsa, I hope!
8. El Centenario - 1306 S Kansas Ave Topeka, KS
Carne asada again! I love it to my heart, so I recommend this place based on the fact that this is the only thing I order here. I may have a small problem. (They're just so good!)
