The Kansas City Taco Trail:  7 Must-Try Taquerias

Tacos are also a special treat where the Kansas City Taco Trail is a relatively new attraction filled with tacos just as tasty as the barbeque.

As a result, in 1910, 55 percent of all railroad track workers were Mexican. By the 1920s, the number was 95 percent. When Mexicans immigrated they brought their recipes and taco traditions with them.

El Camino Real on the KCK Taco Trail

Is a small, locally-owned taqueria with authentic Mexican street tacos. The Al Pastor is the must-try taco here. Everything is unique about these tacos.

Bonito Michoacan Taqueria

Part grocery store, part meat market, and deli, Bonito Michoacan Taqueria is a combination venue with about a dozen tables. They serve the tacos on flour tortillas.

Tacos El Guero

At Tacos El Guero, they serve all their tacos with fresh raw onions and grilled onions, cilantro and include pinto beans inside the taco with the rest of the filling.

Paleterias Tropicana

Paleterias Tropicana offers a standard-size fried taco, rather than the smaller street taco. The restaurant tops the tacos with cabbage slaw and avocado.

El Toro Loco Mexican Bar & Grill

Is a casual spot offering delicious Mexican food, authentic street tacos, and margaritas. One of the few places I went that offered seafood tacos.
