Down in the Rio Grande Valley, the southernmost tip of Texas, tacos reign supreme. It’s where tacos are made with heart and soul and lard, wrapped in steaming tortillas and doused in homemade salsa. The area’s gas stations wrap up better tacos than the finest restaurants elsewhere in the country.
In an attempt to put the record straight, here are the best taco spots in the Rio Grande Valley. This means top-notch picks from McAllen, Port Isabel, Laredo, South Padre Island, Edinburgh, Brownsville, and Weslaco. There are breakfast tacos from Ms. G’s, late night ones from Dejarvis, fish tacos at Chillito Pikin, Taco Palenque’s piratas, and others.
