Illinois is one of the best states for food so I'm not surprised that there are multiple taco joints ranked nationally.

Best Tacos Towns In United States

Recently, Yelp ranked the top taco towns in the United States. Chicago landed at number seven. That's very respectable when you're talking about the whole country though in my opinion it should be rated much higher.

If you’re craving tacos for dinner, you’re not alone, as Chicago is not only one of the top places in the country for the iconic food, but also has some of the best restaurants in America.


Chicago is the seventh-ranked city in the United States in terms of the number of search results for the best taco restaurants.
