This Jalisco-style joint does fantastic birria. Try it with lamb meat, which is the house specialty. Their tortilla de maiz street tacos are also a great option.

Copy Link

El Vecino is a neighborhood favorite for good old-fashioned Tex Mex. Their classic crispy taco plate is the way to go to fix your taco craving.

E Bar Tex-Mex

Hit up this Dallas establishment for a plate of tacos de carnitas, in which slow-cooked pulled pork is smothered with onions, chipotle aioli sauce, queso fresco, and cilantro. It’s also a heck of a place to find a good time. 

Revolver Taco Lounge

Revolver is a great spot to push the boundaries of what you order in your taco. These tacos are a work of art, from duck breast to scallops to wagyu. 

Salsa Limón

Copy Link

Asada, pastor, and legua — oh my! The menu of taco fillings at Salsa Limón is extensive enough that it will take multiple trips to try them all. And it’s always a good idea to add a side of pickled cabbage.

El Palote Panaderia

Copy Link

Not surprisingly, Dallas’s premiere vegan Tex Mex spot is a delicious destination for tacos. They’re made with soy-based chicharrones. Pro-tip: don’t skimp on the dipping sauce.

Coco’s Fire & Ice

Copy Link

Jalisco and Guanajuato cuisine inspires the food here, so they go heavy on the fish and mole sauce — both are remarkable. Fish tacos are the way to go, or splurge and order lobster tacos. 

El Chingon Fort Worth

El Chingon will be right up your alley if you’re looking for badass Mexican food. The whitefish tacos are a home run, as is el pastor done badass style — with the ingredients wrapped with fried cheese.

Del Sur Tacos

Copy Link

This one is for the Lucha libre fans or folks who like a success story. Del Sur went from a gas station operation to a storefront with an extensive Tex Mex menu. The tacos are a la carte, and the cochinita pibil is a must-order.
