Let’s give your office something to taco ‘bout, shall we? Friday, October 4th is the perfect opportunity. Why? It’s National Taco Day, folks, and it is just as its sounds: a day to celebrate and eat all of the tacos.
Sure, Americans already eat over 4.5 billion tacos every year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a day dedicated specifically to the Mexican delight.
We all know and love tacos for their corn or wheat shell that contains all of the saucy meats, cheeses, beans, salsas, spices and vegetable toppings we need for the perfect meal. So go ahead and spice up an otherwise dreary fall day in your office by throwing a Mexican fiesta office lunch with the best local tacos your city has to offer.
Here are the best tacos that our local food experts across North America are most excited to chow down on this coming Taco Day.
Where to get the best tacos for Taco Day this October 4th
Best tacos in Atlanta
Try Tacos and Tequilas’ DIY taco bar with warm and soft corn tortillas, grilled vegetables or grilled steak, shredded spicy chicken or classic ground beef, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and cheese. It wouldn’t be our favourite without its Mexican rice, beans and homemade guacamole and cheese dip. Plus, it comes with chips and salsa. ¡Salud!

If you’re looking for a variety of tacos this October 4th, Juana Taco is your food truck (and Foodee delivers). They have dozens of breakfast tacos and office lunch tacos to choose from. We’re drooling over the Machacado Con Huevo a la Mexican Taco with homemade flour or corn tortilla, scrambled eggs, shredded dry beef, onions, jalapenos and tomatoes. But, the Barbacoa Taco with braised beef cheeks dressed with cilantro and onions, and lime on the side is equally delicious.
If you’re looking for breakfast tacos for a small group, Kesos Tacos is your jam. If you’re looking to throw a large Taco Day celebration, they also have build-your-own taco bars for groups of 10 and up. Choose the tortilla, protein, toppings and sauces, order a few sides from the chips n’ salsa bar, add a few extra Pico de Gallo’s and salsa and you have a ready-made Mexican fiesta.

Roxie’s Tacos taco bar is unlike anything you’ve ever tried before. Indian meets Mexican flavour-explosion style. The carne option, for example, is a red chicken curry with coconut milk and homemade garam masala, saag paneer with Greek yogurt, chana masala with kale and chickpeas, organic citrus slaw, brown rice and beans all wrapped up in fresh soft corn tortillas.

Looking for a build-your-own taco bar in Denver? Los Chingones is a serious Denver staple. Depending on where your office fiesta is being held this taco day, Foodee’s partnered with two Los Chingones locations: DTC Belleview Station and Rino. Order a mix for your office, trying out the Adobo chicken tacos, the barbacoa brisket tacos and vegetarian options with seasonal veggies, beans, cheese, salsa and Pico de Gallo.
Denver’s Tortilleria Mixteca is serving up delicious tacos de la calle, aka Mexican street food. They have everything from slow-roasted pork, fall-apart braised chuck roll with pickled onions, and citrus-marinated skirt steak tacos to pan-fried zucchini ratatouille tacos to crush on. Yum.
Best tacos in Toronto
Queen West Street’s Milagro Cantina in Toronto is a must-try traditional Mexican eatery for your office lunch, regardless of whether it’s taco Tuesday or National Taco Day. Try their Tacos de Hongos with sauteed mushrooms, chiles poblano and panela cheese or their Tacos de Cochinita Pibil with southern pulled pork in achiote with pickled habanero onions. But, of course, they have so many delicious tacos that it’s hard to choose just those.
