Your Tastebuds Will Go Crazy For This Amazing Taco Trail Through Kansas City
Is there anything more satisfying than a plate of tacos? Meat, cheese, and a tortilla marry each other to form what’s arguably the best food ever. Here in Kansas City, taco spots are a dime a dozen, but where should you spend your dime? It’s impossible to list
every great taco spot, but these eight eateries on this taco trail are some of the best in Kansas City. Who’s up for a mini road trip?
1. Kansas City Taco Company - 520 Walnut St., Kansas City, Missouri
First we're headed to Rivermarket, where you'll find odd tacos in a variety of flavors. Grab a taco with cod or mesquite pork, and let your tastebuds go on an adventure.
2. Mission Taco Joint - 409 E 18th St., Kansas City Missouri
Next up is Mission Taco Joint, which recently opened up shop here in Kansas City. They're served family-style on a platter, so be sure to remember what you ordered!
3. Tacos El Gallo - 806 SW Blvd., Kansas City, Missouri
Since we're all here for tacos, this shop makes them perfectly. Plus, they stay open late for your late night taco needs when you return. Because you will return, trust me.
4. Ricos Tacos Lupe - 802 SW Blvd., Kansas City Missouri
Rico's is a taco shop that values quality and price overall. Their taco Tuesdays bring the price of a taco to just $1 and food is served pretty quickly after you order.
5. Penn Valley Park - 2698 Main St., Kansas City, Missouri
Why is there a park listed in our Taco Trail? Well, because you need to walk off some of the food-baby you're probably growing by this point. After a bit of fresh air, we'll get right back on the taco trail!
6. El Fogon - 4037 Mill St., Kansas City, Missouri
My favorite tacos from El Fogon are the pork, because you'll never find any taco so tender. However, it's recommended you don't leave without trying the tres leches cake first.
7. Tikitacos - 1710 W 39th St., Kansas City, Missouri
Is that street corn? It sure is! It pairs perfectly with these Tikitacos, and is an amazing snack during their late night hours on Fridays and Saturdays.
8. El Camino Real - 903 N 7th St., Kansas City, Kansas
Next up is El Camino Real which makes an awesome taco el pastor, freshly made right in front of you.
9. Bonito Michoacan - 1150 Minnesota Ave., Kansas City, Kansas
Last but not least is Bonito Michoacan, which has some of the best carne asada tacos I've had in awhile. It helps that this taco spot is right inside a grocery, so you can pick up a Jarritos soda or Mexican Coke-a-Cola to round out your taco adventure.
