Local tacos are trending in Richmond. The filled-tortilla specialty comes in many varieties, both authentic styles and creative riffs incorporating Southern flavor.

The thriving food truck scene deserves some credit for the current abundance of delicious tacos, but local eateries are holding their own. Richmond boasts traditional Mexican restaurants, fancier restaurants serving upscale tacos, a handful of trendy taquerias and cantinas for the happy hour crowd, and even a few Latin bodegas that serve more authentic fare.

If you are not in the mood for Mexican flavors, RVA is also home to some nontraditional fusion dishes like Alamo‚Äôs Texas BBQ tacos. 

The ever-growing and award-winning Richmond dining landscape can sometimes be overwhelming to navigate, so click on the right to read our review of five tacos that span the best of the local variety.
