Curious about where to find the best tacos in Ohio? Consider the following your Buckeye State Taco Bucket List:
- Mazunte. What sets this Mexican restaurant apart from the pack is its commitment to authentic ingredients and flavors. The owners of Mazunte actually lived in Mexico for a year and learned classic cooking techniques and old family recipes, which they later moved back to Cincinnati. Mazunte’s tacos and empanadas are cult favorites, as is the grilled street corn. Mazunte isn’t only the best Mexican restaurant in the state—it’s also one of the best restaurants Ohio!
- The Funky Truckeria. The Funky Truckeria is a Mexican restaurant in Ohio that specializes in all things tacos, and that includes this dish's oft-forgotten sibling, the nacho.

Pro tip: order the fully loaded nachos with extra guacamole... followed by a plate of fully loaded dessert nachos. Mmm.
- Condado. Create your own tacos and pair them with a Prickly Pear Margarita for a truly epic taco experience at Condado, which has several locations scattered across the Buckeye State, guaranteeing a taco fix is never far away!
