Where to find the best tacos in Houston? I’ve got 7 amazing restaurants to share with you to try them out!

I love Mexican food and tacos are my absolute favorite. I've written about tacos before but read this as an update and happy world taco day!

Houston is actually celebrating March 31st as world taco day. It's usually celebrated on October 4th in the United States but Houston decided to stand apart.

In celebration of World Taco Day, here are some of the best taco spots in and around the Greater Houston area. If you're in Houston these are some of the best taco places that you'll want to hit up.

1. Tacos Dona Lena - 8788 Hammerly Blvd Ste G Houston, TX

This is definitely a favorite among locals. I love that they serve fixings with your tacos like fresh lime wedge, variety of sauces, radish, onion and cilantro. Try their birria tacos.

2. Brothers Taco House - 1604 Emancipation Ave Houston, TX

This place is one of the best for breakfast tacos according to the locals. I haven't had a chance to check out this place myself and I'm dying to try it.

Coming from San Antonio, there were breakfast taco places located all throughout the city. One of my favorite places there was a barbecue joint called Bill Miller BBQ.

They have a bacon, egg and potato tacos. They made their hot sauce fresh and it was hot and so delicious. I'm excited to try Brothers Taco House and I hope that they truly deliver. They're located on Dowling Street in Houston.

3. La Calle Tacos - 909 Franklin St Houston, TX

This taco joint is on Franklin Street located in Downtown Houston.

This place is known for their delicious taco menu. If you're going on a food crawl for tacos or Mexican food you will want to keep this place on your list.

What to try:

  • Birria Consume
  • Tostados
  • Paloma

4. La Mexicana - 1018 Fairview St Houston, TX

I love the plates here. They are filling with just enough food and super delicious. Whatever you’re in the mood for and for whatever occasion, a small bite of food for yourself or a big gathering with friends, La Mexicana delivers!

Try their fajitas and tamales.

5. Little Cancun - 17950 W Lake Houston Pkwy Suite C Humble, TX

Little Cancun is in Humble, TX, a city just on the outskirts of Houston around a 30 minute drive out. This taco restaurant is worth the drive.

Their Facebook page is what you’ll want to check out before you venture out to Humble. They have a ton of photos and video showing the various menu items they create.

Street tacos are something that look really good. For a homemade, homestyle kind of feel, Little Cancun is where you want to be.

6. Liberty Taco - 4703 Richmond Avenue A Houston, TX

I haven't tried this place out but it's 5-star rated on Google and customers are calling it the best place for tacos in Houston with the best queso ever!

What looks good?

Their quesadillas, chicken tinga, caribbean chicken, and breakfast taco selection, among other items on the menu. Have you been here? What's your favorite item? Comment below.

7. Taco Cabana - Various locations across Houston, TX

This is a chain franchise but's it's still a favorite in my household. They have a new shrimp yucatan quesadilla that my husband is nuts over. It comes with a tropical fruity dipping sauce that's zingy and packs a punch.

I love that the tacos are fairly priced and they have a huge menu. Can't go wrong.
