While there’s nothing crazy or culinarily complex about tacos, there is something special about those small, savory, stuffed bundles. To make at the very least some decent tacos, all you need are good quality tortillas, well-seasoned meat (and/or veggies), and fresh toppings. But to make the very best tacos, you go the extra mile. Below are ten Dallas taco hot-spots that have gone the extra mile to perfect the art of the taco. Check them out, and let us know which you think is best – and you could score a $250 gift card from the winner!

Revolver Taco Lounge

Revolver Taco Lounge

Though Revolver Taco Lounge has only been open sine 2017, we can safely say that they set the bar high. Really high. What really drives this small 49-seater eatery home is the tortillas, made fresh by Tia Tere and Adelita. When you have a good base, you just can’t go wrong.

Taco Heads

Taco Heads

After starting out as a humble trailer selling straightforward and fresh tacos to Fort Worth, Taco Heads opened up its Dallas brick-and-mortar location last summer. So much could be said about what makes this place great, but let’s just start with the fact that their savory bites begin at just $3.25.

Tacos Mariachi

Tacos Mariachi

Tacos Mariachi, made famous on Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, is unafraid to mix in some funky fresh tacos among its obvious standard staples. Order yours with an agua fresca (or two), and bring it home with one of their sweet desserts!

Resident Taqueria

Resident Taqueria

Resident Taqueria is true to its name. Proudly nestled in the heart of Lake Highlands, the restaurant strives to be a casual place for residents to simply hang out and enjoy fresh tacos complete with made-to-order tortillas. What more do you need?

Tacodeli

Tacodeli

We tip our hats to Mexico City-native Roberto Espinosa for starting this tried-and-true taco staple. Just a glance at Tacodeli’s menu, and you might think that he brought almost all the tacos from Mexico to Dallas – but who’s complaining?

Taqueria La Ventana

Taqueria La Ventana

You want relaxed and casual, and Taqueria La Ventana delivers (both literally and figuratively). The traditional street-style bites are consistently delicious, and with a Mexican craft beer to wash it all down, you might just think you’re in CDMX.

El Come Taco

El Come Taco

You could take a trip to Mexico City, or you could just dine in at El Come Taco. This 2013 established taco joint offers a crazy number of options for all you loud and proud taco-fiends of Dallas. While their traditional tacos are killer, their specialty tacos are worth at least a gander.

Velvet Taco

Velvet Taco

Velvet Taco takes you for a globe-trotting trek with all of their worldly flavor combinations. And with all their bites organized by meat (or veg for the vegetarians out there), figuring out your taco preference just got a whole lot easier. Also, they’re open “really late” if that means anything to anyone.

TacoLingo

TacoLingo

TacoLingo is making a big splash in Uptown’s newly opened space, The Union. The fresh and flavorful combinations presented in the warmth and comfort of the casual taco eatery will keep you coming back for more. Maybe for their Saturday brunch…

Chilangos Tacos

Chilangos Tacos

Sometimes the best things come from small (and simpl…y delicious) packages. That’s Chilangos Tacos. The flavor-packed tacos served as this intimate new tacqueria are basic – not boasting anything too crazy, just satisfying your never-ending taco cravings.
