I like to consider myself a connoisseur of the finer things, those things being tacos. I love tacos so much, I dressed up as a Taco Bell hot sauce packet for Halloween last year. I love making my own, I love fast food tacos, I love authentic tacos. I am a taco person. Here are my pick for the top three places to get tacos in the St. Cloud Area!

1. Taqueria La Campechana - Located in the same strip mall as Carrie Johnson Bridal in Waite Park (95 10th Ave S, Waite Park)
Why they are the best: When the restaurant opened up they claimed to have the best carne asada in town. They were not telling lies. I have never had better carne asada in my life and I have been to Mexico, twice! This place is a favorite in my family and is so worth checking out.


2. Taqueria Chavez - Located in Crossroads Mall food court
Why they are the best: This is the second location of this restaurant. The original one is in Long Prairie and it is where I used to eat all the time in high school. The flavors are outstanding, and the prices can't be beat! Also their burritos give you a food baby, and that counts for some major awesome points.

3. Gilberto's Tacos - Located by Sport Clips in St. Cloud (2301 Division St #100, St Cloud)
Why they are the best: They literally have the word "taco" in their name. They know what they are doing at Gilberto's when it comes to making tacos. My go-to meat of choice there is the steak. It is perfectly seasoned and melts in your mouth. Literally.
