Taco Choza offers a wide variety of delicious tacos, burritos, tacos, and house specialites. Visit once and you'll see why they are ranked at the top.

2. La Cocina De Mama
Address: 2809 N Hurstbourne Pkwy Louisville, KY 40223
Phone: (502) 822-3506
La Cocina De Mama has two locations: one in Louisville and one in nearby Shelbyville, Kentucky. It's a favorite in both communities! I personally love the tostones (smashed, fried plaintains topped with chicken, chihuahua cheese, pico de gallo), Mama's fajitas (a fajita combo featuring steak, chicken, shrimp, and chorizo), and the seafood enchiladas (enchiladas stuffed with shrimp, scallops, and imitation crab).

5. La Rosita
Address: 5059 Preston Hwy Louisville, KY 40213

La Rosita is an authentic Mexican restaurant that serves both tacos and tortas. The best part? It's located inside of a Mexican grocery store! Try a variety of their many tacos (al pastor, barbacoa, lengua, chorizo -- just to name a few) and one (or two, maybe three!) of their tortas!
