If you’re like most people in Miami, you can’t get through a week without some authentic Mexican cuisine. Luckily, street tacos have become a top food trend of 2017, meaning tons of restaurants dedicated to the Mexican mainstay are popping up everywhere. We’ve gathered a list of the best taco spots in Miami to stop in if you’re looking to not shell out a ton of cash.Top Taco Spots in Miami FL

Cantina La Veinte

The first thing you’ll notice at Cantina La Veinte is the ornate, art-deco design. With an upscale take on many Mexican classics, Cantina targets customers who are seeking a more luxurious take on tacos. Like many Miami restaurants, outdoor seating is offered, but Cantina takes it up a notch with views of the Biscayne Bay. Special events are also part of their regular schedule, with offerings like Ladies Night every Wednesday and 2-for-1 beer specials for soccer games.

What to Order

Among the extensive list of menu items, the pork tacos and lobster tacos are standouts. The King Crab Tostadas feature some of Miami’s best seafood. For a sweet ending, order the Dark Chocolate Chili Truffles.

Coyo Taco

Highlighting their focus on the freshest ingredients in their selection of tacos, burritos, and quesadillas, Coyo Taco aspires to satisfy customers. Their taco menu includes traditional options like grilled chicken, marinated pork, and charred steak, along with a few more adventurous choices like octopus and grilled cactus. Coyo Taco’s menu also suggests that you “convert your taco” into a burrito with the same picks of fillings. Head through the secret doors at the back of the restaurant to grab a drink or two from the bar.

What to Order

A fan favorite choice from the menu are the Quinoa Y Nopales Tacos with cilantro yogurt and cucumber pico. The Al Pastor Tacos with pork, roasted pineapple, and onion have been hailed as some of the best in Miami.

Huahua’s Taqueria

With their doors staying open until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, Huahua’s Taqueria remains a popular option for South Beach partygoers. While their tacos draw most of the attention, the sides offered here are just as interesting. Jalapeño Cornbread and Mac n Queso remind visitors that they’re still in the southern states. In addition, Huahua offers catering with a collection of different packages to choose from.

What to Order

Huahua’s Fried Chicken Tacos are rave-worthy. Served with jalapeño cornbread croutons, cabbage, ancho ranch, and cilantro, these tacos are the perfect way to soak up some of that excess alcohol. To see a picture of this mouth-watering dish, take a look at their Instagram! For patrons with something a little healthier in mind, the Grilled Mahi Tacos are a no-brainer, with onion, radish, cilantro, and a chili-lime vinaigrette.

Oh! Mexico

Since 1997, Oh! Mexico has been a top Miami Beach fixture for authentic Mexican cuisine. Their kid’s menu cultivates a family-friendly atmosphere for those of us with little ones tagging along. Their everyday menu supplies both soft-shell and hard-shell tacos for anyone looking for a little variety. Oh! Mexico also participates in Taco Tuesday for a beginning-of-the-week taco and margarita celebration.Top Taco Spots in Miami FL

What to Order

If you’re having trouble choosing just one taco type from the menu, opt for the Los Tres Compadres. This entrée comes with three different kinds of hard-shell tacos: grilled chicken, skirt steak, and pork loin. Pineapple, kiwi, and jalapeño margaritas serve as the perfect accompaniments to any taco you choose.
