MINNEAPOLIS, MN - We searched the area and sifted through hundreds of recommendations to offer you the most incredible tacos in the Twin Cities. This list includes three excellent taco shops, ranging from taco trucks to sit-down restaurants.

1. Taco Taxi

Location: 1511 E Lake St Minneapolis, MN 55407

Every food served at Taco Taxi is authentic and traditional and passed down from generation to generation.

Taco Taxi was founded in 2005 by brothers Carlos and Hector Lopez. They are basically from Jalisco, Mexico. Carlos and Hector were getting inspired by their hometown's Mexican fast food and decided to create their small restaurant in the heart of Minneapolis' Latino neighborhood.

They serve a wide range of menu items inspired by the brothers' birthplace, including the famous burritos, tacos, and birria (a soup made with Jalisco style).

2. El Taco Riendo

Location: 2412 Central Ave NE Minneapolis, MN 55418

Miguel Cruz, a native of Mexico City, founded El Taco Riendo in 2009. He starts following a successful career in Minnesota; after he arrived in 1984, he works at fine dining such as Santorini's Taverna, Gianni's Steakhouse, and, most recently, Oceannaire Seafood Room.

Miguel aspired to be self-sufficient. He chose to create El Taco Riendo after drawing on his experience as a professional server. El Taco Riendo realizes many goals for Miguel, including having a place where he can create his food his way, at his price point, and share a bit of his birthplace with the local community.

This taco shop specializes in serving high-quality food prepared fresh with local ingredients that are always available for takeout or dining in.

3. Tavial Grill

Location: 1199 W 7th St Saint Paul, MN 55102

Tanis, the restaurant's proprietor, founded Tavial Grill in the fall of 2014. His family used to own a restaurant when he was a kid. Tanis frequently assisted in any manner he could, earning valuable expertise in the process. So the family wasn't surprised when he wanted to create his restaurant because it was practically in his blood.

Every day, Tavial Grill is delighted to deliver high-quality, genuine Mexican food that will satisfy any craving. They always have a diverse menu here, ranging from authentic Mexican cuisine to drinks and desserts.
