Taqueria La Placita 

This dish is a winner, thanks to the chorizo, fatty pork head, and Mexican spices. The best place to get unique tacos in Hyattsville is this hot spot renowned for its authenticity and great flavors. This is the place to head if you want fresh food. You can get to La Placita by taking a slight detour off Kenilworth Avenue to Edmonston Road. A mariachi figurine hangs from the roof, evoking the frenetic energy of Mexico City. When you walk in, you will see an elite and horchata station to your right and a counter where you can order tacos. About a dozen varieties are available.

Tortilleria Sinaloa

Mexican food in Fells Point is authentic and affordable. These freshly made tortillas are a local favorite, as they are delicious and unlike anything else. You can hardly call a taco authentic without fresh tortillas, so if you haven't tried them yet, you must. Also, the food is affordable, as you can buy tacos for as low as $2.99, and that's for steak. Taco joints like Tortilleria Sinaloa aren't like most of them. Locally sourced foods are instead served. This means that you can find things in season and specialty tacos not always on the menu. Trying the guacamole would be the best option. It is a pure delight to eat avocados that are so fresh.
