Can't Miss Meals

Chorizo con Papas Breakfast Tacos from Seis Kitchen and Catering

Tacos for breakfast? We can’t think of any better way to start the day! House made fresh-ground pork chorizo, handmade corn tortillas, crisp Idaho potatoes, caramelized onion, Sriracha, chopped cilantro, quest fresco, red onion, and Seis-style chipotle creme.

Birria Tacos from Taqueria Pico de Gallo

Taqueria Pico de Gallo is a Tucson classic, and there’s no question why. The meat is slow-cooked, the torillas are thick, and the tacos are hot. It’s the perfect grab and go snack for Tucson. Don’t miss the chile-dusted fruit spears, either. 2618 S. 6th Ave.

Fish Tacos from Fini’s Landing

Fini’s Landing is the only restaurant in Tucson that’s partnering with the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program to serve sustainable seafood. So, when you bite into that perfectly cooked piece of mahi mahi, enveloped in a soft tortilla and topped with pico de gallo and creamy avocado, you can feel good about supporting sustainable fishing practices.

Every Taco from Tacos Apson

Why I Love Where I Eat Columnist Karen Schaffer called the tacos at Tacos Apson “the best in Tucson,” and she doesn’t appear to be alone. The casual taco joint in South Tucson makes tacos that are so authentic and flavorful, you truly can’t go wrong. If you’re having a hard time deciding what to try, do yourself a favor and order one of each! 3501 S. 12th Ave.
