The VA Foodie Taco Trail: The Top 40 Places to Get Tacos in Virginia

Forget Taco Tuesday, how about tacos every day? For breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even a late-night snack, tacos are always a favorite. They’re are so popular, we think you could travel the state and have a taco at every stop. With that in mind, we thought we create a Virginia Taco Trail.


Dreaming of tasty tacos, we took to social media and asked our followers to give a shout-out to their favorite place, and y’all definitely delivered. So here goes! The official Virginia Foodie Taco Trail:

Locally-Sourced and Muy Bueno

We’re all about local sourcing, and we love to see international cuisine that’s influenced by the terroir of locally sourced proteins and produce. So we were happy to see so many Virginia taquerias that proudly proclaim their strong local roots.

Locally-Owned Fan Favorites

They might not tout local sourcing, but these small businesses are your Virginia neighbors, and many have been around so long their community would not be the same without them. While they might not use uber-local ingredients, all of these locations serve up tacos that are freshly made from scratch, with an authentic taste. As you travel around the Commonwealth, give these tacos a try–they come highly recommended by their friends and neighbors.

More Tacos Worth Mentioning 

Tacos are so majorly yummy that many types of restaurants include them on their menus as a bar or breakfast food, and no Taco Trail would be complete without sharing a few of the more notable ways to have a taco experience.

Wong Gonzales (Richmond), while not a traditional taqueria, has devoted their menu to a fusion of Chinese and Mexican flavors that is a tasty experiment in blending two cultures. Simple Eats (Virginia Beach) touts a locally-sourced taco on their bar menu. Beer Run (Charlottesville) regularly serves up fine breakfast tacos. And Flavor on Main (Culpeper) has an ever-changing taco experience using local ingredients for their Taco Tuesday specials.

Let us know how you satisfy your taco cravings. As you travel across the state, sampling tacos from our taco trail, snap a pic, give us a shout, and tag your posts #vafoodietacotrail, and we’ll keep sharing that taco love.
