Let's tacoboutit

View as Map

Tacos are certainly having their moment in Miami. While we have several newcomers open in recent months there are still plenty of hole-in-the-wall spots that have been around for years, it's almost hard to keep track. Here are the 15 different taco places to try right now, listed in geographic order from north to south.

Editor’s Note: Most Florida restaurants have resumed indoor and outdoor dining services. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for onsite dining, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the Florida Health Department’s website. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
