I have been eating tacos every day for the past five months. All to prepare for this moment.
Ladies, gentleman and germs: I am about to reveal to you the ten best tacos in Tucson. This is not your regular "best of" list. In the course of this project, I have technically eaten 100 Tacos, but in reality I have eaten more than twice that much. You can say, I've done my homework.
This collection represents the best Tucson has to offer, from street food to gourmet restaurants, the traditional and the fusion. Every single taco on this list was one that I previously wrote about during my 100 Days of Tacos project, no newbies. So if I missed your best taco, I'm sorry for that. I also tried to represent all of the varieties in town, but in the end I had to go with my gut.
I stand by every single one of these choices. I recommend them to locals, to visitors from Wisconsin, to food snobs and to people who eat Lean Cuisine in the dark. I encourage every single one of you to visit these establishments and to eat.
These tacos made me laugh, these tacos made my cry, these tacos made me full, and many of them even made me hungry!
... Yes, they are in order.
