From authentic to fusion, vegetarian to Tex-Mex, there's always a perfect taco waiting for you. Join us on this adventure. You’ll thank us later.

Brothers Taco House

1604 Emancipation Avenue, EaDo

Often rated as #1 in the hearts of Houstonian’s as the best taco place, this taco join in EaDo lives up to its reputation. There’s always a line out the door – but it moves quickly – so you know it’s worth the visit. Only offered on the weekends – we recommend their barbacoa tacos, and at a reasonable price you might as well order up a few while you’re there.

Cabo Baja Grill

4520 Washington Avenue, Houston, TX 77007

Cabo San Lucas is a city at the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula and it is from this region of Mexico that they bring their taco flavoring and stylings – but you don’t have to go all the way to Baja, Mexico for this food…just the Washington Heights neighborhood of Houston. When it comes to the menu you’ll see a lot more fish options than usual and that’s because fish is a popular item in the Baja peninsula of Mexico and because it is we recommend the Baja fish taco while you’re here.

Various Locations

You can find Tacomadre in a few different spots in Houston – which is good…because it’s delicious! With plenty of options on the menu obviously we recommend the 3 tacos de maiz (corn tortillas is the authentic way to eat a taco – so if you’ve never had a corn tortilla please try it ASAP). The meat options are up to you but the classicist in us makes us want to get some pastor tacos and then get some more!

Tacos La Bala

Various Locations

Located all throughout the Houston area Tacos La Bala has a lot to offer! Something we haven’t seen anywhere else however is the tacos con chicharron so you know what…why not try something new! Was that down with a nice Modelo Especial while you’re at it (if you’re 21 years or older that is).

Liberty Taco

4703 Richmond Avenue & 1333 Old Spanish Trail #100-A, Medical Center

Conveniently located in the Galleria Area & in the Med Center, Liberty Taco believes in the freedom to eat delicious tacos. Given the amazing amounts of mixing and matching with their breakfast options we recommend trying their breakfast tacos (and you can’t go wrong with some chorizo, egg & cheese).

Pappasitos Cantina

Various locations around Houston

An iconic Houston dining experience, Pappasitos Cantina is a must on your taco Tuesday stop. While you can get much more than just tacos (so so so much more) this is Taco Tuesday so it’s #sorude if you don’t get a taco. We recommend the Taco Dinner with chicken tinga and then finish off the meal with a homemade tres leches dessert!

El Tiempo Taqueria

5526 Washington Avenue, Rice Military 

This authentic neighborhood taco shop & meat market, located in the Rice Military neighborhood, is brought to you by the Laurenzo family – the same family that brought you El Tiempo! As both a taqueria and a market you can get your tacos & salsas at the same time as you can get your barbacoa & brisket. While the daily specials change – so you should check them out every day of the week – we recommend going on Friday and trying the breaded fish tacos!

La Chingada Tacos 

1402 Northwood Street, Houston, TX 77009, Heights

Located in the Heights, La Chingada Tacos & Garganchas is more than just a taco company. Serving up the most authentic in Mexican food, they offer home made recipes with quality products. Our delicious breakfast tacos are made to order and everything in our kitchen is homemade. Providing our customers with the best in quality and always serving fresh products is our mission. We recommend trying their fish tacos (on corn tortillas obviously!) during their lunch special pricing M-F between 11:30 & 2 PM.

Tacos A Go Go

Various locations around Houston

Tacos A Go Go opened in 2006 at their location on Main Street (next to the Continental Club). Ranked by Texas Monthly as “Tacos You Must Eat Before You Die” we’re not too hard pressed to agree. Having personally tasted MANY of these delicious tacos personally we can guarantee, without question, that the MUST TRY taco is the pollo guisado!

Bodegas Taco Shop

1200 Binz #160, Museum District

Located in the heart of the Museum District of Houston, Bodega’s is the perfect taco join to hit up while exploring the many top-notch museums Houston has to offer! They have something for the whole family to try – with their many fun combos – but you might as well order their Fish Tacos – after all, it’s what made them famous!

100% Taquito

3245 Southwest Freeway, Houston, TX 77027, Upper Kirby

In their own words, they are Making this world a better place...three small tacos at a time (and we believe them)! 100% Taquito began as a school project in University of Houston in the prestigious Entrepreneurship program and since 1996 has been selling taco to all of Houston and is now located in the West U neighborhood! We recommend trying the sampler tacos so that you can get a little bit of everything while you’re there!
