Hey Houston readers shared some of their favorite taco spots around town. Do you have one that we missed? I personally want to try Verde Garden in Montrose because I hear their tacos are delicious and the margaritas are on point.

🌮 Candance says we need to check out Cedar St. Cafe:

“These are the best breakfast tacos in the city! The tortillas rival HEB's, but are handmade by the cafe. The hot sauce is exquisite! You can also grab a pastry or coffee there too! The location is excellent, right next to my favorite HEB. The family also owns a tamale shop around the corner.”

🌮 Rachel recommends Tacos Tierra Caliente, which is one of my favorites:

“My absolute favorite taco spot in Houston is the taco truck Tacos Tierra Caliente at the corner of McDuffie and West Alabama. You can't go wrong with their barbacoa or pastor tacos.”

🌮 Michele says we need to make a stop at Laredo Taqueria for their barbacoa.

🌮 Analicia also recommended Fusion Taco in The Heights area.

If you still have tacos on the brain, we have more recs from Marco A. Torres, the taco columnist at Houston Chronicle. [City Cast Houston 🎧]
