People come to the Lone Star state for our smokey barbecue, but what they stay for are the tasty over-the-top tacos. This bucket list comes straight from the deep heart of Texas and it has tortillas stuffed with everything from barbecue to pork belly. Don’t worry if you can’t make it to all of them – we have the recipes, too!
San Antonio chef Johnny Hernandez has been disrupting the culinary scene with his innovate takes on authentic Mexican cooking. His refreshing version of fish tacos are made with salmon instead of the usual white fish and topped with a crunchy cabbage slaw and fresh guacamole.
These Braised Lamb Tacos are an international mashup from the minds of MKT BAR in downtown Houston. Extremely tender and slow-cooked to perfection, these Middle Eastern-inspired tacos are topped with orange salsa and a cooling labneh-mint sauce.
This is the ultimate Tex-Mex taco that you never knew you needed! Smoke your own brisket recipe or stop by one of your favorite barbecue spots, then use Killen’s Pico De Gallo and Roasted Tomato Salsa for topping. Not in the mood to cook? Then head to Pearland and try the real thing.

Simple, but oh-so-good, these fish tacos from Rosario’s in San Antonio were on Texas Monthly’s list of “Tacos You Must Eat Before You Die”. Searing the fish keeps these tacos incredibly light and makes them perfect for an easy weeknight meal.
