Many argue that Veracruz All-Natural makes the best tacos in town. They don’t get our top spot, but we will say that they make what is hands-down the greatest migas taco we’ve ever tasted. Their non-taco stuff is great too (particularly the quesadillas). Do expect ridiculously long lines unless you catch one of their trailers in a rare slow moment, which is usually during weekdays.

ADP’s sandwiches, hush puppies, and tacos are great. But they’re even better over a beer at The Wheel next door.

El Alma Cafe y Cantina
El Alma is a Tex-Mex spot with an excellent patio and some of our favorite queso in town.
The tacos coming out of Tacos Guerreros, a tiny, orange, one-woman trailer on the East Side, are spectacular.

Tacodeli is home to the best breakfast tacos in town, and therefore the best breakfast tacos in the world.
