Miguelitos Taqueria Y Tequilas – 2702 West Kennedy Blvd, Tampa

Your first stop should be to Miguelitos overs on West Kennedy where you can find a great option for fresh, authentic tacos today. It was created by the same people that made Miguel’s Mexican Seafood & Grill, and it was voted as the top Mexican Restaurant in Tampa. You’ll love the outdoor patio with the huge awning, but you’ll also love indoor seating options on a rainy day. Either way, you’ll want to try one of the 40 tequilas and the tacos made with the freshest ingredients.

California Tacos – 1450 Skipper Road, Tampa

If you prefer a good old taco stand, check out California Tacos over on Skipper Road.

Choose what you’d like it filled with depending on your mood, with fillings like chicken, beef, pork, cartnitas, carne asada, and vegetarian options.

VIP Lounge & Mexican Restaurant – 10625 Gulf Blvd, Treasure Island

If you prefer a casual dining vibe, go to VIP for the Gringo style or Mexican style tacos. You’ll find the Mexican tacos have meat, diced onion, cilantro, and a wedge of lime, while the Gringo style has meat, lettuce, and cheese. You can sit inside or out while enjoying a margarita with your meat or fish tacos.

La Cabana Del Tio – 1709 Drew Street, Clearwater

Check out La Cabana for another great taco shop. It’s easy to miss since it’s a small location next to an old laundromat in a strip mall, but the taco shop has amazing low prices and quick service. You can’t get beer here but you’ll love the Mexican sodas and buying some of their flour tortillas to take home. You’ll only need $1-$2 per taco.
