First, why is this holiday not on a Tuesday? Nevertheless, we are always down for some tacos! So for #NationalTacoDay, we decided we should celebrate this most beloved, delicious and portable food item with a look at who our readers voted as having the Best Tacos in Waco.

Find out who readers voted the best in food and entertainment in our October Best of Waco issue that just hit stands yesterday!! If you haven’t picked up a copy yet, you can find the digital equivalent here. If you want to skip right to the 2017 Food & Entertainment winners, they are here.

Of course, Best Breakfast Tacos is its own category because let’s face it, they’re practically their own food group. Lolita’s took home the distinction for the third year in a row! In second and third place were George’s and Torchy’s Tacos respectively.

Another new winner for the Best Tacos in Waco (Local) – George’s! Torchy’s Tacos was voted Best Tacos in Waco (Chain). And in a tie for second place are Rosa’s Café and Taquiera Zacatecas Fuego.

And for a little fun, here are the Best Tacos and Best Breakfast Tacos winners from the last few years.
