1. EL COME
This place was one of the first restaurants we tried when we moved to Dallas. Four years later, El Come is still serving our favorite tacos. Words that make us crave a taco: authentic, hole-in-the-wall, cheap, and, most importantly, family-owned. El Come is all of that, and more. And you MUST order the Pollo a la Mexicana!
3. LA VENTANA
You’ll want to experience La Ventana for yourself if you enjoy eating your tacos on a patio. It is one of Dallas’s gems with a Miami-type vibe including hanging lights, colorful decor and lively music. But the real reason to come beyond the atmosphere and food? The $3.75 margaritas!
A native-Fort Worth institution, it finally made its way to Dallas’ Deep Ellum neighborhood. You might think the Al Pastor would be the most basic taco (since every taco places in Dallas has an Al Pastor), Revolver’s is to die for! Hands down the best al pastor taco we’ve had in Dallas!
5. SALSA LIMON
Also by way of Fort Worth, Salsa Limon is downtown Dallas’ hottest new restaurant. Delight in the Capitan taco in which they actually melt the cheese between two tortillas, and you just pick your meat. Salsa Limon also serves breakfast tacos all day and is open late night —until 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturdays.
8. TACOS Y MAS
With six convenient locations across DFW, this small but mighty taco stand makes some of the best tacos in town and are known for their breakfast tacos. If you have the late-night munchies, Tacos Y Mas has you covered. the Cedar Springs location is open until 5 a.m. and the one on Greenville, until 3!
Although Trompo has been around for a couple of years, it recently became one of the most trendy taco spots to try because it was named One of America’s Best New Restaurants by Bon Appetit Magazine. Trompo‘s pink-colored pork (pastor) taco and the open-faced quesadilla are the must-orders.
10. URBAN TACO
Urban Taco has two amazing things we want to shout out on their menu: the Al Pastor a la Tuma and Avocado Ceviche Tower. The tower is a beautiful combo of fresh, raw fish, cilantro, and spice layered with avocado. And the Al Pastor a la Tuma, which has melted manchego cheese on the tortilla, has been listed in Texas Monthly’s top ten tacos list!
