Taqueria Tsunami, La Parrilla, Pappasito's Cantina, Los Reyes, Taco Loco, Viva Mexico Restaurant, Vaqueros Mexican Cantina, Las Nenas, Mi Rancho—the list of places serving up tacos is a long one, and I've only tried a few. Here are a few of the places I've checked out:
Taqueria Tsunami has a selection of Latin-Asian tacos, sides, salads, quesadillas, Tsunami bowls and more. It's not what most people think of when you say taco, but I love Taqueria Tsunami. The Asada Zing Taco is my favorite—perfect Bulgogi (Korean) marinated steak topped with shitake mushrooms, fresh lettuce and a subtle, yet very pleasing, soy-sesame vinaigrette. The one thing that must be said about this dish is juicy, juicy, juicy. My second favorite taco at Taqueria is the Pacific Rim Taco, which is grilled chili crusted Mahi topped with lettuce, pico de gallo and hoisin lime aioli.
With a Tsunami Trio Taco, you can order any two tacos and a side for $8. Learn more about Taqueria Tsunami here.
Hollie Guacamole! Gourmet Burrito: Chicken, steak, pork, tofu and veggie burritos and tacos; quesadillas, including cheese, chicken steak and veggies; nachos; salads; and breakfast items fill out the menu. The prices are average and the servings are fair.
The Grilled Chicken Burrito comes with fresh chicken breast with rice, pinto or black beans, and your choice of pico de gall, cheese, sour cream, sauteed mushrooms, corn or grilled onions and peppers. The burritos here are packed full of ingredients and tightly wrapped in a soft flour tortilla, preventing more of the burrito's insides from ending up on the floor than in your mouth. The creamy, fresh and somewhat thin guacamole is a very satisfying addition to any order. Learn more about the service, food, atmosphere and more here.
Los Reyes Mexican Restaurant: A more traditional Mexican restaurant. The prices are a little higher than some of the surrounding Mexican restaurants, and the food tastes about the same. I've heard great things about Los Reyes, but my experience here has always been average, good but not great. Tell us what you think of Los Reyes in the comments.
Taco Bell, the fast food chain of the taco world. When it comes to fast food, Taco Bell is high on my list of where to stop; but when it comes to looking for a good taco, Taco Bell is further down. The prices are great, but you get what you pay for here. Sometimes cold and often unmelted cheese, Taco Bell fulfills the general taste requirements for taco dishes.
Chepes Mexican Grill: Everything is freshly prepared–no bottled salsa here. The pico de gallo and guacamole are made hourly and are delicious, Jan Katz-Kellogg said in her review. The tacos are presented like a piece of art and are really good. All the sides come in double portions, and you are probably going to need a take-out box.
