The Most Authentic Tacos Can Be Found At This Hidden Gem In Cincinnati

Tacos are so popular and delicious that we’ve dedicated an entire day of the week to them. Taco Tuesday isn’t the only day to enjoy these flavorful, handheld favorites, however, and we have more and more amazing places to get a true taste of authentic Mexican cuisine. One such place is Taqueria San Marcos in Norwood, which appears from the outside and inside more like a classic ’50s diner than a Mexican restaurant. But once you have a seat, order, and try some of their authentic tacos and other dishes, you’ll quickly realize you’ve stumbled upon a true hidden gem in Cincinnati.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
