Best Tacos In Texas 2017

Good Day,

Wild Salsa Shrimp Tacos!

Some say the “Taco,” a staple of traditional Mexican cuisine, dates back to the 18th or 19th century and in the silver mines in Mexico. While tacos do not have a very long history, I don’t think anyone truly knows their origins. If I were a betting man, I most definitely would say the taco has Hispanic roots, lol.

If you say, “Hey Trey, describe a taco to me in your words.” I would say without hesitation, “A taco is an unbelievable treat of tasty, creative goodness wrapped up in a corn or flour tortilla!”

I really can’t explain the flavor of a taco, but each of you know that when you see the word “taco” anywhere, the mind goes into what I call the “Full Tilt Boggy!” The word “taco” sends our thoughts running amuck with visions of delicious toppings, meats, and cheeses. Truth be told I never get sick of tacos, and I can never get enough of them ever. They are addicting! One is not sufficient, three for sure isn’t, and ten might be just right. I am in LOVE with tacos. I have spent the better part of the year eating tacos with Celebrity Chef David Hollister and watching David cook a bunch of tacos. David’s love for tacos unquestionably matches mine.

There are all kinds of taco variations in today’s times, but here are some of the most popular names;

Adobada = Marinated pork,   Barbacoa = Shredded Beef,   Buche = Pig Stomach,   Cabeza = Cow Head,   Carne Asada = Roasted Beef,   Carnitas = Roasted Pork,   Cecina = Beef JerkyChicarrón = Fried Pork Rinds

What you will find on the list below is some of the best tacos in Texas, and I urge you to try them all and post the photos on Trey’s Chow Down!

Have fun and enjoy eating some of the best tacos in Texas!
