5000 Belt Line Rd #850
Dallas, TX 75254
(972) 866-8900

For a somewhat oddball taco, head to El Tizoncito for the Texas Monthly-endorsed chuleta con queso. Served two corn tortillas, bits of pork are smothered with a thick coat of jack cheese, this taco is perfect for curing a hangover or inducing a nap.

Chef-driven tacos can be a little overly fussy, but at Resident Taqueria, simple preparations and killer flavors shine. Vegetarian options, like roasted cauliflower with kale or slow-braised mushrooms, are abundant and satisfying for even the most ardent of carnivores. If veggies aren’t your bag, go for the glazed pork belly or short rib taco.

5. Revolver Taco Lounge

Copy Link
2822 W 7th St
Fort Worth, TX 76107
Revolver Taco Lounge has long been one of DFW’s best taquerias, which means that most of us in Dallas are waiting impatiently for its second outpost to open in Deep Ellum. In the meantime, you’ll have to be satisfied with heading to Fort Worth for a taste of what’s to come, like the weekend breakfast taco bar and always-excellent pastor.

6. Taco Heads

1812 Montgomery St
Fort Worth, TX 76107
The humble taco get a refined, upscale take at Fort Worth’s Taco Heads, which serves up both breakfast and lunch tacos. Fill corn or flour tortillas with garlic-cilantro shrimp, Nuevo Leon-style pastor, or charred avocado and roasted corn. Wash it all down with a mimosa or paloma mixed with freshly-pressed juice.

Dallas, TX 75208
(214) 760-1930

This Austin-based taco spot has been in Dallas for a few months now, but perhaps you’re lazy and still haven’t made your way to Sylvan Thirty to check it out. The breakfast tacos at Tacodeli are most excellent, especially if you’re nursing a brutal hangover. Also notable are the meat-free options, perfect for vegetarians and vegans.

8. Tacos Mariachi

602 Singleton Blvd
Dallas, TX 75212
This recently-opened Trinity Groves taqueria serves up Tijuana-style street tacos. The most popular taco, The Campechano, is always a solid choice. Stuffed with carne asada, grilled octopus, sauteed shrimp, avocado, and pico, it’s basically like having five delicious tacos at once. Minus all the carbs.

9. The Rustic

3656 Howell St
Dallas, TX 75204
Chef Daniel Menchaca puts his own twist on the traditional tortilla with a healthy dose of bacon fat, and the result is delicious. Stuff yours with smoked brisket or sweet potato picadillo, and pair with a side of jalapeno spoonbread to perfectly soak up all those patio beers you’re going to drink.

11. TNT (Tacos and Tequila)

Copy Link
2800 Routh St #155
Dallas, TX 75201
469) 518-7888
This uptown taqueria's name is pretty self explanatory: you order up a few tacos, and chase 'em with a few shots of good tequila. The options here are a bit unconventional (think fried artichoke hearts and breakfast tacos topped with onion rings) which means that you'll need to be prepared to get out of your usual taco routine. Add a side of black bean adobe pie or a skewer of grilled veg to round out your meal. Margaritas are not optional.

12. Trompo

839 Singleton Blvd
Dallas, TX 75212
This Singleton Boulevard taqueria keeps things really, really simple. Your taco options are limited to beef, pork, and vegetarian, but that’s really all that you need. Go for the pork, cooked on Trompo’s namesake vertical rotisserie, and top it with plenty of salsa verde. Wash it all down with a Topo Chico.

13. Velvet Taco

Copy Link
3012 N Henderson Ave
Dallas, TX 75206
(214) 823-8358
Visit Website
Outside of all the standards at Velvet Taco, your best bet is generally to try this Henderson Ave late night favorite’s “WTF,” or weekly taco feature. The inventive tacos are filled with everything from fried calamari and kimchi to fried green tomatoes and bacon, so it’s definitely a good way to expand your horizons.
