We’ve got some news that will make you want to extend Taco Tuesday celebrations throughout the entire week–Yelp searched high and low to find the 100 most mouthwatering tacos, and three of the nation’s best taco spots in our very own city made the cut!
NYC’s top-rated taco spots include Los Tacos No.1 in the 14th spot, Cafe Nube in Brooklyn at number 33, and Brooklyn’s Birria-Landia Williamsburg at number 59 (they were also rated among NYC’s top 100 restaurants according to The New York Times!)
What are people looking for when they bite into a taco, you ask? Well, Yelp looked into that too. The top taco trends for 2023 include:
- Cheesy goodness
- Demanding and delicious (in other words, we’re looking for that homemade factor)
- Seafood to savor
To seek out the nation’s best taco spots, Yelp sorted out the businesses in the restaurants and tacos categories and then ranked those spots using a number of factors, including the total volume and ratings of reviews. If a chain appeared on the list more than once, they only included the highest-rated location.
Beyond NYC, El Cuñao Deli in Nyack, New York and Craft Taqueria in New City, New York also found themselves on the list at number 80 and number 87, respectively.
As for the top spot overall, that title went to Aroma Latin American Cocina, in Henderson, Nevada (their best-selling Pork Belly Taco takes more than 30 hours to perfect, which is pretty crazy!)
And though we didn’t take the top spot for being home to the best taco, we are home to the best pizzeria in the country, and we’re definitely cool with that.
