Seven Awesome Tacos in Dallas
The Best Street Tacos in Dallas
The king of all beef tacos, La Banqueta's suadero is likely the most well-known taco amongst connoisseurs in Dallas. Grab a Topo Chico from the reach-in and order as many as you can handle. You'll walk out with a belly full of fizz, happiness and your wallet intact. That's why La Banqueta is this year's Best Meal Under $15.
La Nueva Fresh and Hot
The corn tortillas here are amazing. The light fluffy rounds cradle delicious fillings and the salsas they make on site are good enough to take home. (Containers are in the reach in if you're inclined.) Many of the taco fillings are good here, but the guisado verde is the best. In fact, coupled with those tortillas it makes for the best taqueria in all of Dallas.
Restaurant Y Taquería CristinaThe tortillas here are so greasy it's frightening, but the barbacoa will set your worried mind at ease. The meat is rich and fatty but not egregiously so and is lifted with an almost lemony flavor. Watch out for the salsas here. They're all made fresh, put Tex-Mex versions to shame and pack a serious punch.
El Tizoncito (Multiple locations)
While some pastor is tinged the color of a cherry Popsicle, the pork at El Tizoncito looks refreshingly natural. Modestly spiced and packed into fresh tortillas, the meat is juicy and flavorful. The condiment tray packed with salsas, onions, cilantro and limes coupled with the clean, bright dining room will make you wish more taquerias in Dallas paid this much attention to the extras.
