The Best Taco Restaurants in Montgomery County MD

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Capital Properties DC AB15253

Ixtapalapa Taqueria: Gaithersburg
This authentic eatery serves $2 tacos, making it a great price point that allows diners to try any combination of the menu (or all, we don’t judge!). The Al pastor, cachet, and chorizo all come highly recommended, as do pairing these tacos with Ixtapalapa Taqueria’s delicious margaritas.

Tortacos: Germantown
Tortacos offers a straightforward, LA-style taco menu including pollo, carnitas, asada, and vegetarian. Known for friendly staff and speedy service, this restaurant will greet you with a smile and have your order ready in a flash.

Tacos Tortas & Tequila: Silver Spring
Alluring flavors and beautiful décor reign supreme at this neighborhood taco establishment. Whether you’re feeding a hungry soccer team or traveling with friends or family, Tacos, Tortas, & Tequila (located on the lower level of the building, below their sister restaurant Buena Vida) has fresh tacos that satisfy everyone’s cravings.

Gringos & Mariachis: Bethesda
With its dark corners and chill vibes, Gringos & Mariachis is great for an intimate date night or catching up over $6 tacos and sangria at happy hour. Follow your birria, duck, and honey glazed shrimp tacos with a delicious dessert order of tres leches cake or churros with a chocolate dipping sauce.

Al Carbon: Rockville
An order of Al Carbon’s Tacos Tres Amigas brings three separately-filled tacos with ceviche, shredded beef, and chicken that come in double-wrapped tortillas and with pico de piña. Convenience is key when it comes to this Mexican restaurant, which is located just a short walk from the Rockville Metro station.

Nada: North Bethesda
For a more upscale experience with an authentic Mexican ambiance, check out Nada in Pike & Rose. Street tacos worth a taste include carne asada, baja, and the creatively flavorful vegetarian options featuring mushrooms, cauliflower, and tofu.

Taco Bar El Guero Gaithersburg

I love this place.  It is tucked inside a convenience store near Rio on Field Road.  Try the Al Pastor tacos or the chorizo.  The sides are a treat too.  Such good food in such a surprising location.

Tacos are extremely popular these days and those pictured look delicious!  I love tacos, but I am still more of a burrito fan, haha.

Those tacos look really good.  We recently had great quesadillas in Ojai which is a little town not too far from us. A
