Today is a 24-hour fiesta packed with tiny tortillas filled with savory goodness. What day is it, you ask? National Taco Day. And we’re your host — deliverin’ tacos since 2004 — Grubhub.
A classic carne asada or maybe carnitas? Whatever tacos you prefer, here are some of our go-to spots. From hyper-local joints to tasty chains you can find across the country, let’s take a look at where you can order tacos from to celebrate.
If you’re looking for fish tacos, Rubio’s is your spot. The home of the original beer-battered fish taco — their recipe dates back to 1983. (Yeah, they even were voted the #1 Fish Tacos in California by USA Today’s Readers’ Poll Best of 2018.) Locations for this spot are sprinkled across the country in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Nevada and Utah.
This well-known Tex-Mex chain is an easy choice to celebrate the occasion. Thinking of inviting friends over tonight? Order the mini crispy taco platter with 18 tacos filled with chicken tinga or ground beef, accompanied by all the usual suspects (salsa, tomatillo sauce, cheese and lettuce). Tiny tacos for everyone!
Super fresh ingredients — with everything made from scratch — make these tacos (fried lobster, anyone?) worth a bite…or several. This chainlet boasts locations in Los Angeles, Chicago and Las Vegas (and locations in Boston & Miami are in the works). Burritos, enchiladas and fajitas are also on the menu, if you’re looking to really get the party started.
Sure, this is a local Chicago spot…but a revered one at that. BST has a location in Wrigley Field…could they get more legit? Taco mainstays like al pastor and carne asada make the menu, but have you ever heard of taco de zanahorias? Talk about fall: these tacos are piled up with mole spiced carrots, chipotle date yogurt and pumpkin seeds.
