The moment I tried my first street taco, I set out on a mission to try and find the best ones in Wichita. I spent the last handful of years visiting every food truck and restaurant in town serving them. I would say I put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this, but there wasn’t any. Instead, I put a lot of mileage on my car, visits to the ATM for cash only establishments and extra pounds on my body to put together my list of Wichita’s best street tacos.
My criteria to make the list came out to taste and meat options. There are lots of people who love and judge places solely on their al pastor and carnitas which is totally fine. I’m a lover of offal which includes stuff like tripa, buche, lengua, cabeza, you name it. Variety is a must for me even if it’s just additions like birria or seafood.
So, after years of traveling around Wichita eating street tacos, here’s my list of the top twelve street tacos in town in no particular order.
Mi Lindo Michoacan Mexican Restaurant
2120 N. Broadway
Ricos Tacos El Torito
1935 N. Broadway
2433 S. Seneca St.
Taqueria El Fogon
1555 S. Bluffview Dr. & 2604 N. Arkansas
Tacos El Sol
3180 S. Meridian
2787 S. Roosevelt St.
3404 N. Arkansas
2815 S. Hydraulic
It was REALLY hard cutting down hundreds of options down to just twelve. There are some noticeable ones that missed the cut like Taqueria La Chona, Taqueria Altena, and even some new trucks like Taqueria El Vago. That just shows there are more than twelve awesome places for street tacos. BUT if I had to task myself with just twelve, those are the ones I would go with.
