Not one from AZ? Fail.

The best taco is a NAVAJO Taco

from a place like this.

Just like a regular taco, except big as the plate, and instead of taco shell, it's FRY BREAD.
you grab the sides and eat it like a taco... if you can. Some of them are so filled, you have to eat em with a fork.

Go to a local meximegamart. They have a food counter...point and grunt (which isn't needed as they always speak english in America).

Get tacos. some rice and beans. Enjoy.

At the places here...the tacos are served with just the meat bit and the taco---you get to decorate it yourself from a 'salad bar' arrangement...with lettuce, green onions, tomato, cilantro, lime wedges, sour cream (very optional in squeeze bottles) and mexican cheese.

It's rather expensive about 3.00 dollars a taco--but a cut above most resturants. (tho you don't get endless chips and salsa with the meal).

drp: Mid_mo_mad_man: Invest in large scale agribusiness. You build it and the mexican food will show.

Nah, it can't be that.  Plenty of agriculture in Virginia.  Maybe wonder if Mexican people lose their ability to make good food the further they get from Mexico?  Either that or they modify the cooking for local markets full of pasty easterners who want bland food.

Once upon a time I was visiting South Carolina and went to a "Mexican" restaurant that was lauded by several people as great.  There was a line to get in.  I ordered a combo plate with a taco, enchilada, and burrito.  The taco was a folded flour tortilla with unseasoned ground beef in it.  The burrito was a rolled flour tortilla with unseasoned ground beef in it.  The enchilida was a differently rolled flour tortilla with unseasoned ground beef in it, with what appeared to be Pace picante sauce splashed on top.  One of the people with me got a "tostada" which was a flat flour tortilla with unseasoned ground beef on it.

I thought they were farking with us but the locals thought it was great.

A good rule of thumb on Mexican food is this if the place looks like it would pass a health inspection walk on by. It won't be good.

I live in San Antonio. I've been to Milwaukee. The world is bigger than Wisconsin.

You people think jalapeños are painfully spicy, fer Christ's sake.

Next time you come, open your eyes and your mind and you will see the real Milwaukee, one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the country, also one of the most segregated but at least that way you know what part of the city to go to for different types of food (and no, most do not see jalapeno's as the epitome' of heat). Do you have Nepali restaurants in SA? Indonesian? Afghani? Laotian? Jamaican? Ethiopian? Moroccan? Brazilian? Puerto Rican? Just a few I've been to in the last year.

// Bet I've seen more of the world than you
/// been to all 7 continents and 44 states

This is not a dick measuring thread, and because you have all those foods does not make them "good" or "authentic".

I saw a burrito place in Paris and tried it out of sheer curiosity. It was an abomination and I got what I deserved. You can't blame people for being skeptical about ethnic food in one of the most non-ethnic parts of the country.

...or Colorado, a lot of great tacos there.

They had one vegetarian taco from Washington, looks good . Other than that my pursuit of any decent tacos/burittos in this state have been futile.  ALL the Mexican food here is just like any that you would get in the mid-west dating from the 1960's  beans /rice and red sauce poured over whatever they want to call an enchilada.

Cantina del Centro in Nelson BC is amazing!!! Yes there is good Mexican food in Canada, even in the rurals of BC.

Shout out to Rancho Chico in Colville Washington as well.

The beautiful thing about Austin/most of southern Texas is you can drive down some crappy road in the middle of nowhere and encounter a food truck with Mexican food that blows your f'ing mind. Granted if you don't know Español you have to point at the menu, but it's good shiat.

FloridaFarkTag: This list had too many "whiny foodie" entries...but good that Chico's Tacos in El Paso made list.

But, for sure, most Whiny Foodies would never step foot in a Chicos Tacos. Great food, but the La Raza anti-gringo attitude of some of the staff would shatter all the diversity myths held by a White Guilt Whiny Foodie....

However, folks used to it are rewarded with the best Mexican food...and its not that insuferable wussy vegan foodie crap

/I love that we can't even talk about tacos without you getting all bent out of shape about liberals

Going back and forth between San Francisco and Chicago (and having grown up in Texas), I was about to lose my shiat over how many east-coast and Chicago taco places were making the list.

But then La Taqueria makes the top, and maybe these guys know a thing or two.

I still feel like some awesome taco joints and epic street tacos from socal are missing, as well as a few treats in SF, but it's not a bad list.  Having been to a number of those places, the sparse relative ranking is pretty good.

That was a surprisingly good list. The "gourmet" NY one needs to be delisted, though.
