The taco is one of the most popular dishes in the country, and with National Taco Day coming up on October 4th, many spots across America will be celebrating in full force. But true taco aficionados know that McAllen has the best, authentic tacos! With so many taco spots to choose from in the city, we’ve made a list so you can celebrate!
Ms. G’s Tacos N’ More
2263 Pecan Blvd.
Ms. G’s Tacos N’ More is addicting. While all of their food is undoubtedly worthwhile, their breakfast tacos are their staple. And to start off Taco Day the right way, stop on by! We suggest going early because their wait lines get long. Greatness takes time and we promise it’s worth the wait!
