    "The fried avocado and bacon taco is life-changing. It’s crunchy and creamy and spicy and I could eat a million of them. All of their tacos are amazing, but that one is by far the best. So yum."

    "Unassuming, tiny space that serves as the front part of a tortilla factory. Cheap, simple, and insanely good! It even made Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations a few years ago. If it's good enough for Bourdain, it's good enough for me."

    –Lindsey Rich, Facebook

    "I had their veggie street tacos. So, so good. Marinated tofu, little bit of cotija cheese and lime. They have a food truck as well as a sit-down restaurant in Capitol Hill."

    "Best tacos ever! My favorites are the Deep Hole, made with crispy cauliflower, pico de gallo with capers, Parmesan cheese, garlic aioli, and crispy shallots; and the Eastside with fried catch of the day, fennel and grapefruit salad, and avocado cream."

    9. Papas N Tacos, Pacoima, California

    Eric F. / Via yelp.com

    "They have iconic potato tacos. They make the most of their tacos by spreading the meat (or potato) on a tortilla then DEEP-FRYING IT. It becomes a soft, crunchy hard shell and then they toss on lettuce and cheese. SO GOOD."

    "So Tucson is a veritable minefield of authentic Mexican food. But I have to say, the absolute greatest tacos in town are from a nondescript restaurant called Pico De Gallo. They make handmade tortillas that are to die for and have a huge variety of fillings. They are the tacos of your dreams, I promise!"

    "The sesame rib eye and pork belly tacos are religious experiences. Plus, they have awesome drinks and sides (grilled corn with lime, cayenne, and cojita cheese!) and about a million tacos to choose from."

    "The turkey club carnitas taco is INCREDIBLE. They slow-cook turkey in a myriad of delicious spices and then they pull it like barbecue pork. They top it off with jalapeño bacon, avocado, and some lettuce and tomato, along with a creamy sauce. The best taco I have ever encountered in my 26 years on Earth."

    Desiree L.

    14. Fuego Tortilla Grill, San Marcos, Texas

    Tina S. / Via yelp.com

    "It's open 24/7 (nothing is better than a taco at 3 a.m. during finals week), and my favorite is the Dr. Pepper Cowboy. It’s a soft flour taco with shredded beef, Dr. Pepper BBQ sauce, corn, grilled onions, cheese and queso. I go twice a week, minimum."

    "I get the black bean and mushroom taco (marinated mushrooms, black beans, queso fresco, tortilla strips, cilantro), but my mom loves the baja fish taco — and the avocado taco is also really good. Everything is really good. Black Sheep is love. Black Sheep is life."

    "The best street tacos you could possibly find this far from a beach. Def order the Pescado: chipotle- and beer-battered fish, slaw, avocado and pineapple guacamole, topped with pickled red onions and lime. I'm drooling already."

    "Tacos El Gordo have absolutely delicious and affordable tacos! They cut the meat right off the bone in front of you, and add a super-tasty semi-spicy guac sauce that is to die for."
