Everyone loves a good taco!

Finding the best tacos in Las Vegas is like judging the best candy in a candy shop. There’s such a large selection that it’s hard to choose what’s best. But travelling around the city to distinguish the “good” from the “greats,” and it’s as much about savoring the journey as it was the destination. Deliciousness is a universal language that transcends borders and cultures. Whether you’re a local or just stopping by, the love for tacos binds us all.

Your Taco-natomy

Tacos are a very versatile dish. They offer a wide variety of tastes and textures that can cater to practically any palate. Your choice of tortilla, whether it’s hard or soft, protein, cheese, sauces, and vegetables (if any) give you almost limitless options. But not every ingredient is equal when it comes to flavor. Each eatery has their own unique preparation processes. Marinades, seasonings, dips, the use of an open flame or flat top grill are a few of the ways that your experience can drastically differ.

The Innovation Of The Taco Truck

It’s become a well-known luxury in Vegas that you can spot multiple taco trucks conveniently serving the people of our city on any given day. To some, they’ve become saviors of the lunch rush. But where did they originate? According to JSTOR Daily, the first taco truck was created in 1974 by Raul Martinez in Los Angeles. He’d converted an ice cream truck, parked it outside a bar, and, after six months, he was able to open a restaurant, which he later turned into a multimillion-dollar chain.
