Your Taste Buds Will Go Crazy For This Amazing Taco Trail In Texas
The best kinds of road trips are the ones that involve food, am I right? Follow this greasy, meaty, juicy taco trail and try out nine of the absolute best taco joints in the entire state.
Per usual, the exact addresses for all of the restaurants as well as directions can be found
here. Happy trails, everyone!
1. Revolver Taco Lounge (Dallas)
You won't find traditional tacos at Revolver, but they've mastered their unique concoctions to a level that'll have you begging for more. Goat and octopus are just two of the interesting protein options offered here - and before you turn your nose up, trust me that the chefs are absolute experts and know exactly how to cook and flavor the meat to ensure its perfection.
2. Tacodeli (Dallas)
Tacodeli serves more than 40 different kinds of tacos (including breakfast). Oh, and it's BYOB. Need I say more?
3. Mi Lindo Oaxaca (Dallas)
This little gem is one of Dallas's best kept secrets. Everything is homemade, even the tortillas, and 100% authentic. One of their most popular items is the mole because the cacao beans are peeled by hand and make the flavors pop like nothing you've ever tasted.
4. Salsa Limon (Fort Worth)
Street tacos are the name of the game at Salsa Limon. The best part about that? They're small enough for you to order several and sample different combos! The pastor, carne asada, and barbacoa tacos seem to be the obvious winners, and all the sauces have been praised in the absolute highest regard.
5. Tamale House East (Austin)
Locals recommend the fish tacos at Tamale House, partially because they're so big that even our Texas-sized appetites might have trouble finishing them. A huge tilapia filet is marinated and grilled to perfection, plated on two corn tortillas, and topped with pickled onions, guac, and a to-die-for chipotle dressing.
6. Veracruz All-Natural (Austin)
The Migas tacos are where it's at at this iconic Austin food truck. Fluffy eggs, crispy tortilla chips, pico, shredded cheese, and avocado all piled in a homemade corn tortilla. It doesn't get much better than that.
7. Los Tacos Gueros (San Antonio)
From breakfast to carne asada tacos, crunchy to soft shells, mild green salsa to fiery habenero and everything in between, this hole-in-the-wall joint is definitely a hidden gem in San Antonio. Your only regret will be not ordering enough food!
8. Brothers Taco House (Houston)
This long-standing joint in Houston draws foodies from all corners of town to chow down on some of their famous breakfast tacos. Potato, chorizo, and egg is probably their most popular (and arguably most flavorful) menu item. Oh, and did I mention they make their own tortillas?
9. Gerardo's (Houston)
Everyone who's anyone knows that Houston's very best barbacoa can be found here at Gerardo's. It's the perfect marriage of fatty, juicy steak and seasonings that bring out the natural flavor of the meat. You'd better get here early if you want some, because it sells out faster than you can snap your fingers!
