If there’s one food that I’d never get tired of, it’s probably Mexican food. The spice, the rice, beans, salsa and carne asada is like heaven to my taste buds. When we visited Mazatlán, Mexico years ago, I had some of the best food I have ever tasted outside of the tourist town. But can you get that authentic taste elsewhere? Why yes, yes you can!
Although I haven’t tried some of these places, they are highly rated and recommended in our city.
Best Places for Street Tacos in Vancouver, WA
Now everyone’s taste buds are obviously different, so what one may like, others may not, but it seemed like everyone agreed that these are some of the best places in Vancouver, WA to find street tacos. These are in no particular order.
Just a little bit of info if you see them offer delivery services through Grub hub or what-have-you, these delivery services take quite a bit of money from the restaurants who are trying to stay afloat during this pandemic which results in all of the added fees and the higher prices on menu items. It’s best to support by picking up yourself so they’re keeping their money and it not being taken by places like Grub hub.

The fish tacos were highly rated here and so was the chicken, so I ordered those the other day and I must say, I have had better. The only thing that made the fish tacos good was the cilantro lime white sauce or whatever it was that they topped on it because it wasn’t seasoned at all. The beans were super flavorful though!! My husband had the shrimp burrito and let’s just say, I seen her lay down more rice than anything else. It was a huge burrito stuffed with rice and wasn’t worth the $10 in my opinion.
Like I said above, everyone’s pallets are different.
They are a chain of super fast paced, family oriented establishments, serving your favorite Mexican dishes, everything from their popular tacos and nachos to delicious specialties, seafood, and yummy desserts!

I’ve only eaten a burrito here, so I can’t speak for the tacos, but when I did have a burrito, I thought it could use a little bit more meat.
