We are obsessed with Mexican food in this country, with the burrito nearly beating the breakfast role as our unofficial national dish.

Tacos sometimes get overshadowed by their big bean-filled bro, but here at Lovin Dublin we think tacos are bite-sized Mexican perfection.

We've scoured the city over the last year for the best tacos and picked our favourites. All you have to do is work your way through the list now!

10.  Burritos And Blues 

Well-established on the scene, better known for their burritos but switch it up next time you're in and try the tacos. You'll be glad you did!

9. El Grito Mexican Kitchen

When walking along the Quays make sure to pop in here for some killer authentic flavours.

8. Little Ass Burrito Bar 

Ignore the fact that they have a tiny city centre store, and that burrito is in their name because they do a mighty fine taco too.

7. Acapulco 

One of the best-established Mexican restaurants in the capital. Plenty of varieties to choose from and spicy toppings a must here.

6. Tolteca 

One on the list to grab on the go during a quick lunch or when shopping around town. Relaxed atmosphere and quick service with brilliant flavours.

5. Azteca 

Not many people know about this great spot at the top of Dame Street but that's their loss. Great tacos and as an added bonus they host Mexican cooking classes so you can learn how to make them too.

4. Boojum

No doubt that they are the absolute king when it comes to making burritos as the queues out the door will attest but their burritos are every bit as good at their tacos. Check them out.


3. Xico

A Mexican dive bar great food and dim lighting. Grab a huge portion here before partying on into the night.

2. Taco Taco 

You'd expect a place with the word Taco in their name not once but twice to do a pretty mean taco in fairness. They do, and they have a huge range of options with absolutely massive portions.

1. 777

On the higher end of the scale and more expensive than the others on the list but the tacos in here have to be tried to be believed. Huge flavours, lots of specials on a regular basis and great margaritas to wash them all down with.
