El Paso, Texas – the Mexican Food Capital of America and home to more than 350 restaurants that have the name “Taco” in it.

That’s a lot of taco joints to try if you want to find your favorite. Luckily, we’ve gone through the list and found the top five highest rated Taco restaurants in the city thanks to Facebook and Google. And no, Chico’s Taco’s did not make the list.

Here are the best tacos in El Paso.

1. Taco’s Don Cuco

Where do I even begin with Taco’s Don Cuco. They proudly claim to specialize in tripitas.. and rightfully so. They are likely the best in town. The salad bar is loaded with your favorite taco toppings and salsas and you’re free to put as much as you’d like. Check out our story here.

Recommended location: 5901 Alameda Ave, El Paso, TX 79905

2. Taqueria El Cometa

If you’ve never been to El Cometa, you’ll probably have a hard time finding the place as its housed inside a shopping center parking lot and its building doesn’t really scream taco joint. But their Al Pastor Tacos make the search totally worth it.

Recommended location: 9529 Viscount Blvd, El Paso, TX 79925

3. Tacos Chinampa

Before you even pull into the parking lot of Tacos Chinampa you’ll be greeted by the amazing smells of the Mexican food cooking. And it will make you instantly 10x hungrier. And you’ll be happy about that when you take a bite out of the Asada Tacos, a house favorite. Fajitas de Pollo are also amazing, and a lunch deal is around $6.

Recommended location: 6110 Gateway Blvd E, El Paso, TX 79905

4. Tacoholics

Tacoholics has grown up – from their food truck to a full-fledged restaurant. Two things that I absolutely love from their menu are the Tofu and Korean Tacos, topped with their homemade Gringo Sauce. The sirloin Tacos are also amazing. Their extremely friendly staff makes for a great experience.

Address: 1613 N Zaragoza Rd #201, El Paso, TX 79936

5. The Little Shack

This place is the place to go if you love fish tacos. Their shrimp tacos are addicting as are the grilled fish tacos with avocado. While you’re there, order the ceviche plate!
