The is 2017's ranking of America's best tacos. For the most recent ranking, please click here.

The humble taco inspires fierce passion and loyalty throughout the United States. Ask a resident of Texas (Austin and Houston in particular) where the country’s best tacos are, and they’ll say you’re certain to find them in their city, full of pulled and smoked meat. Head to San Diego and you’re sure to meet some people who are absolutely convinced that there’s nothing better than the fried fish tacos that are ubiquitous there. Elsewhere, purists say there's nothing like a carnitas taco, or a taco al pastor.

America’s 75 Best Tacos for 2017 (Slideshow)

And you know what? They're all right. New Yorkers have complained for years that it’s tough to find a great taco in their city, but in recent times, several have been introduced that rival the best you’ll find in Mexico. And up in Chicago, Maxwell Street Market has arguably become a world-class taco destination.

What makes a great taco, exactly? The best ones tend to be simple, with clean, vibrant, and varied flavors, each component good enough to stand on its own. A perfect taco is balanced in flavor, and isn’t loaded down by superfluous add-ons. The tortilla (traditionally corn-based in Mexico, but often made of flour around the U.S. today) should be super fresh and, ideally, handmade where it will be served. The filling should be made with an eye for balance. The toppings, be they traditional onions and cilantro or new-wave chipotle harissa, should brighten, heighten, and tie the whole taco together into a cohesive, delicious dish.

We’ve tackled the task of ranking the country’s best four times before, and two years ago we started looking to our readers to help us identify more of the best. We also asked our knowledgeable Daily Meal staff and City Editors to weigh in with their picks. We gathered these nominees together and added them to all the tacos that were considered in previous years, ending up with a list of about 350 tacos from brick-and-mortar restaurants (trucks are a ranking for another day), which we then compiled into a survey and sent to our distinguished panel of taco experts — food and restaurant personalities who know a superior taco when they taste one. They voted, we tallied the results. Here are America’s 75 best tacos.


What Is A French Taco?

We thought we knew everything there was to know about tacos. Until we heard about the French taco.

This is the signature creation of French chain O’Tacos, which opened its first location in American in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood.

Less like a taco and more like a pressed San Diego-style burrito, the French taco is stuffed with fries, a white creamy cheese sauce, a protein (choices include grilled chicken breast, nuggets, tenders, ground beef or sausage), an additional sauce (mustard, Tabasco, ketchup, mayonnaise, barbecue) and other ingredients (cheese, mushrooms, grilled veggies, an egg, bacon, ham and more) all wrapped up in a flour tortilla.

The tacos come in four sizes: medium, large, extra large and extra, extra large with the biggest taco measuring the length of a child’s arm. The bigger the taco, the more proteins and tortillas come into play.

What makes this a French taco, or even a taco for that matter? At O’Tacos, it helps to have a laissez-faire attitude about taxonomy. But lest you think this is the latest effort to create a fad, know this: O’Tacos is such a hit in France, there are over 100 locations in that country alone.
