The Best Restaurants to Get Tacos in Toronto

Tacos are delicious all year round, but there’s something about eating them during the summer that just feels right. You could even go so far as to say that patios and tacos are a match made in heaven! In fact, Torontonians’ love for tacos may even rival that of Mexicans.

Talk to anyone in the city and they’ll jump on the opportunity to chow down on the little circular wonders. I’m actually drooling right now, just thinking about it. If you are too, #sorrynotsorry, you’re just going to have to get out and grab yourself a few.

Check out the best restaurants to get tacos in Toronto below…


La Carnita

The uber-trendy La Carnita has four locations in Toronto now, where feasting on delicious tacos is 100% guaranteed. The Pollo Frito and Mexican Chorizo tacos are definitely must trys. Who else feels blessed knowing La Carnita feels inclined to spread the joy of tacos all over the city?!

Happy sinko de mayo ??? #Repost @thecuriouscreature As if I needed more excuses to stuff my face with tacos and tamarind margaritas. Happy #cincodemayo to all those taking part in the festivities today! Fun fact: it’s mostly celebrated by people in the US and Canada and is often mistaken as a celebration of Mexican independence (that’s on Sept 16). Regardless, I love Mexico & Mexicans and am happy to spend a weekend embracing their beaut culture and FOOD ? . . . . . . #may5th #mexican #mexicanfood #taco #guacamole #guac #toronto #tacosforlife #margarita #margaritas #toronto #blogto #the6 #thesix #the6ix #foodblogger #torontofood #mexican #torontofoodblogger #seetorontonow #saturdayvibes #weekendvibes #canadian #fiesta

When a restaurant is named after the beloved grandmother of a Mexican expat, Lola, then you know it’s legit. Step inside the casual Queen St. joint and you’ll feel like you’re at a beachfront cantina. If you’re sticking to the ocean theme, you’ll def want to try the Baja Fish taco.

Hendriks Restaurant & Bar

If you’re looking for a place to try Greek tacos, look no further! Hendriks restaurant and bar located in the heart of the city at the CF Toronto Eaton Centre serves the most delicious Greek tacos in Toronto.

People who live in Parkdale must feel #blessed, knowing they’re so close to one of the best taco spots in Toronto. Grand Electric is like a zap to your tastes buds, coming in hot with a number of vegetarian and meat tacos. Finally, veggies and carnivores can eat together peacefully!

One look at Campechano’s Instagram and you will be drooling in taco heaven. The classic style taqueria believes in no fuss, just flavour exploding tacos. Along with traditional tacos, they’re also serving up blue corn tacos if you feel like being a little adventurous.

El Catrin

Located in the historic Distillery District of Toronto, El Catrin may have one of the best patios to enjoy your Mexican eats. Sit back, relax, bite into a yummy taco, and wash it down with an ice-cold beverage – they also have an extensive drink menu you’re in the mood for a fiesta.

Seven Lives

Seven Lives may be small, but it is mighty! A day in Kensington Market isn’t complete without stopping by for a bite at the little grab-and-go eatery. You’re going to want to try the Gobernador Shrimp Taco; it literally makes me weak in the knees.

El Rey

The Mezcal bar wouldn’t be complete without the option of eating some fresh tacos along with your drinks. It’s the perfect spot if you’re looking to get a little boozy but also grab a bite. Attention squid lovers: The crispy squid taco with coconut will make your mouth drool.

Tacos 101

Don’t you just love it when a restaurant’s name is self-explanatory? Tacos 101 has gone back to basics with the simple approach of offering authentic tacos that won’t break the bank – they’re all under $5.00! With that price, I could maybe even eat 10.

El Caballito

The only thing better than tacos and patios is tacos and tequila. It just makes sense! If this sounds like your vibe, then you’re going to want to make more than a few pit stops at El Caballito this summer. If there’s one thing they’ve perfected, it’s TACOS AND TEQUILA.

King’s Tacos

Hey, North Yorker’s ! Ya, I’m talking to you. Do you feel so far away from all your taco fantasies? Don’t fret, because King Tacos is right in your hood located at Dufferin and St. Clair., and let me tell you, their menu isn’t shy on tacos. So much variety and so many flavours!
